The film has the superhero coming face to face with his father Wenwu, who wants him to take his place in his terrorist organisation Ten Rings.

Shang-Chi received highly positive reviews. It scored 92 per cent on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes.

The Indian Express film critic Ektaa Malik gave the film 2 stars. She wrote in her review, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was supposed to be the Asian Black Panther, and open the gates to Asian pride and denote a new form of storytelling, for its people and the region. The film could’ve been a real game changer, especially in 2021, in the aftermath of the Covid Pandemic, when hate crime against Asians is at an all-time high. Sadly, it only scratches the surface and adopts peripheral nods to acknowledge Asian culture and thought. There is nothing new here.”
