SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS Reactions Praise Epic Action & One Of The MCU's Best Origin Stories
The first social media reactions for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings have been revealed following last night's world premiere, and it seems we're in store for something special with this one.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' world premiere took place last night, and just as it was back in the pre-COVID days, that means we now have the first reactions from those in attendance.
While there's definitely a lot of excitement for the latest Marvel Studios movie, the trailers really haven't given much away, particularly when it comes to how this story will fit into the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, based on these comments from critics, this movie is about to open the door to a whole new side of this shared world, thanks, in part, to an origin story like no other.
Shang-Chi definitely sounds like a movie that will exceed expectations, and for those of you who feel like you already know how the story will play out, it appears Marvel Studios has some big surprises in store. Time will tell what those are, but this doesn't sound like a simple father/son story.
We've come to expect early reactions like these to be massively positive, so it will be interesting to see how the reviews compare when they start dropping early next week. If these Tweets are any indication, though, it looks like this is going to be another critical hit in the MCU's Phase 4.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings earns the title of the best superhero film of 2021 so far. The action scenes are simply spectacular, especially the train & skyscraper scene. Best martial arts I’ve seen in a long time. Simu Liu & Awkwafina are terrific. #ShangChi pic.twitter.com/M0EEMJqKu3— Scott Menzel (@ScottDMenzel) August 17, 2021

It’s an amazing blend of East meets West! Hong Kong martial arts action comes to the #MCU & CHANGES THE GAME!!!
It’s emotional, beautiful & HILARIOUS!
This isn’t like ANY MCU film to date. WOW! #Marvel #MCU @shangchi @MarvelStudios @SimuLiu @awkwafina pic.twitter.com/iEEJ0v1DXA
Expected a simple father/son conflict narrative and it's so much bigger than that. #ShangChi is a beautiful story about family, loss, and how our grief can blind and destroy us.— Kirsten (@KirstenAcuna) August 17, 2021
#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.🐉 pic.twitter.com/72Yubnb4KV— Drew Taylor (@DrewTailored) August 17, 2021

#ShangChi was a blast! Actually, Marvel's first true "family movie" that has a lot of heart. Loads of fun, great fight choreography, & likeable characters galore!— Umberto Gonzalez (@elmayimbe) August 17, 2021
#ShangChi has some pacing issues - there’s a bit of a start/stop feel to it at times and slow parts. But it has a lot of strengths throughout and most crucially, ends very strong.— Eric Goldman (@TheEricGoldman) August 17, 2021
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— Wendy Lee Szany (@WendyLeeSzany) August 17, 2021
The #ShangChi crowd was the most enthusiastic I have been with since Endgame. Couldn’t hear some of the post credit scene dialogue due to cheering. Shang and Katy are instant MCU all stars pic.twitter.com/tQigQFY6ey— Aaron Couch (@AaronCouch) August 17, 2021
