Review of the movie
Shang-Chi was like one of the classic Marvel movies which can be enjoyed by anyone, starting from child to adult. Mainly the movie was based on a fighting weapon, known as ten rings. Shang-Chi is a martial art master whose father, Wenwu lived for 1000 years and was quite monstrous. After meeting with Shang-Chi’s mother, Jiang Li, Wenwu became a peace lover and built a happy family. However, after the sudden death of Jiang Li, Wenwu once again turned into a power-hungry person who tried to turn his son, Shang-Chi also the same person by providing him tough training and making him a killer. Shang-Chi also has a sister, named Xiang.
One of the main factors which have been shown in this movie through Shang-Chi’s sister is the impact of male dominating society. It is a very small part of the movie but is shown quite clearly. As Wenwu was only focusing on his son, his daughter felt alone. It quite negatively motivated her and she turned into an expert in martial art all by herself without any proper training, unlike Shang-Chi. Later, Shang-Chi left that toxic environment and started to live on his own by doing a hotel job. Later, when his father found him, Shang-Chi took his sister and found the origin of his mother, from the place she belonged. His father followed him also discovered the place. Wenwu’s belief that he can bring back his wife made him unleash one of the powerful demons of the underworld. The rest of the movie is mesmerizing with its visual effects, turn of events along with a hint of comedy which is now available on Disney+.
One of the most common questions which can be raised from this movie is whether Shang-Chi is going to be a part of Avengers? The answer is yes. If anyone has watched the movie then they must have noticed that during the post-credit scene, Shang-Chi interacted with Bruce Banner and Captain Marvel. It signifies that we have a chance to see Shang-Chi in our next Marvel movies also.
