The Hong-Kong action movie version of Black Panther.
Shang Chi is a massive breath of fresh air for the MCU and it opens up a whole new slew of possibilities for where the stories can go in the future. And it does it with Ass-kicking action all the way.

SO Much awesome Hong-Kong style action and Kung-Fu!
Simu is an incredibly likeable lead and has great chemistry with his co-stars.
Players like Yeo, Leung, Kingsley etc. all give this the gravitas it needs.
The old "Exposition by way of a Tableau" thing is getting old Marvel...
The Big Bad doesn't feel as developed as it could have been.
The final act is VERY CGI heavy and does become a bit ludicrous at times.
In this show we are spin kicking our way back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the electrifying Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. With new exciting stars like Simu Liu, Ronny Chieng and Awkwafina, joining luminaries like Tony Leung, and Michelle Yeoh, this is shaping up an all-new royal family of Kung Fu super-stars!
The handsome Shaun and his buddy Katy explore the truth of what it means to be Shang Chi and why he walked away from it. All the while he’ll be kicking the ass of a cavalcade of bad guys and gals; not the least of which being Shang’s sister Xialing and father Wenwu (the true “Mandarin” of the MCU)
This Podcast heralds the return of our own prodigal son Dion to the show, his magical powers have indeed been missed. He joins Quinny and Jill in this review of the “Kung-fu Hustle” of the MCU.
