Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Did you know?

Shang-Chi is the 25th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but is the first film in the franchise to feature an Asian superhero as the lead.


Young Kung-Fu master Shang-Chi is pulled back under the shadowy cloud of the Ten Rings, years after he chose to leave the organisation - and his father - behind. This action fantasy from Marvel Studios - the 25th instalment of the franchise - sees the martial artist embroiled in his father’s quest to find a village that is trapped in another dimension.

The choreography in Shang-Chi is influenced by a range of different fighting styles, drawing inspiration from Jackie Chan’s films, as well as incorporating elements familiar in Hong Kong action cinema. Martial-arts violence features throughout the film in numerous set-piece sequences, and was also a key issue for Compliance Officers when classifying the official teaser trailer for the film.

Take a look for yourself and, taking into consideration the issues present in the trailer, how might you rate it?
