Tickets are on sale now and the wait is almost over for fans eagerly awaiting the newest MCU film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The film premiered to critics last night and the response is a resounding thumbs up for the film.
One critic (John Campea from The John Campea Show) calls Shang Chi, "the best comic book movie since Logan" (yes, even better than Infinity War and Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse, says Campea).
Here are some of the other first reactions from critics lucky enough to attend the premiere last night in Hollywood.
Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings is PHENOMENAL. Get hyped. Even fight scene/action sequence is better than the last. @SimuLiu fully embraces the marvel superhero role. Amazing imagery. Killer soundtrack. You’ll want to see this on the big screen. #shangchi
#ShangChi is an action packed adventure that checks all the summer blockbuster boxes. Simu shines bringing a long overdue comics character to the silver screen. The fighting is another level and it has some hilarious moments throughout it.
#ShangChi is an absolute triumph, unexpectedly spiritual and emotionally complex, with some of the very best action in the MCU. @SimuLiu is your new favorite Avenger and the movie’s myriad influences (everything from Jackie Chan to Hayao Miyazaki) pay off big time). Astounding.
SHANG-CHI is such a fun ride & it kicks into overdrive right from the jump! Trust when I say they do NOT hold back on the action. The best parts r the authentic touches Daniel put in along w/ some jump outta ur seat cameos. Oh and 2 words ladies: Florian Munteanu. *fans face*
#shangchi is like no Marvel movie you’ve seen. Love that it opens the door to a new world that I can’t wait to see more of. @SimuLiu literally kicks so much ass and he is perfectly cast. Got to see it in @imax tonight and this is how you want to see it. Looked and sounded perfect
Shang-Chi will also be the first major Disney Summer blockbuster NOT to stream on the Disney+ service, so be sure to get your tickets now.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings hits theaters September 3rd.
