Starring: Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Tony Leung Chiu-wai, Fala Chen, and Michelle Yeoh
Shaun and Katy are valet drivers who kind of just loaf about and do karaoke when not on the job. They’re friends who met in high school.
- Shaun is Shang-Chi who has some serious daddy issues. But who wouldn’t if their mother got killed in front of him when he was just a kid. Then, daddy dearest trained him to be an assassin.
- Katy kind of seems to be just along for the ride, but she has her moments.
- Shang-Chi and his sister, Xialing, both have pendants their father wants for a crazy quest to save their mother.
- The beginning kind of took a while to get through, but it’s necessary backstory for the most part.
- I’m not a huge fan of flashbacks, but I’m also not sure there is any other way to tell such a story. I did enjoy that the flashbacks expanded each time to give the audience more details.
- There’s a lot of subtitles.
- I love Michelle Yeoh, and she makes one awesome aunt to Shang-Chi and his sister.
- The baby and young boy who played Shang-Chi in flashbacks were heart-meltingly adorable.
- I missed most of the first special scene, but it was still a great experience.
Worth watching. Maybe worth watching a few times.
