Wai and WH discuss the cultural significance of Marvel’s first film starring an Asian-lead. They break down Shang-Chi’s comic-book origin and how the film attempts to solve its problematic ties to racist caricature Fu Manchu, its handling of Iron Man 3’s Mandarin-problem, and the influence of various Kung Fu filmic styles in its critically-acclaimed action scenes, ranging from the stunt-choreography of Jackie Chan to the wuxia air-bending of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
They discuss the performances of its all-Asian cast featuring Canadian Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Meng’er Zhang, Michelle Yeoh and the legendary Tony Leung.
Synopsis from Google:
Martial-arts master Shang-Chi confronts the past he thought he left behind when he’s drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organization.
