(2021) (Simu Liu, Awkwafina) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Superhero Action: A man must contend with his past, including his immortal and dangerous father whose actions might threaten everyone on Earth.
Shaun (SIMU LIU) and his best friend Katy (AWKWAFINA) work as parking valets in San Francisco, much to the chagrin of her mother who doesn't believe she's living up to her potential. But little do any of them know that Sean is actually Shang-Chi, the son of Xu Wenwu (TONY LEUNG), a.k.a. The Mandarin, who gained immortality long ago and conquered most of the world thanks to the ten supernatural rings he wears on his arms.
Having just survived an attack by several goons after the pendant he wears, Shang-Chi is thrust back into a world he was trying to forget and hide. Realizing his father sent those goons and that his younger sister, Xialing (MENG'ER ZHANG), is likely in danger, Shang-Chi gets Katy up to speed on what's what and both travel abroad to rescue her.
It turns out she's more than capable of defending herself and putting Shang-Chi in his place, but recognizes the threat their father poses, what with him being determined to enter the God Realm known as Ta Lo. It was there that he first met their mother, Jiang Li (FALA CHEN), and despite everyone knowing she was murdered long ago, he's positive she's being held behind a portal wall in that realm and needs rescuing.
Getting there before him and meeting their aunt, Jiang Nan (MICHELLE YEOH), Shang-Chi, and Xialing prepare for an encounter with their father that could determine the fate of everyone on Earth should he breach that portal wall.
