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.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
