    TV & Movie Reviews: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021)

    TV & Movie Reviews: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021)

    Chris and Dave are back and it's the latest MCU entry, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    Plot

    Thousands of years ago, Xu Wenwu finds the Ten Rings, ten mystical weapons that grant their user immortality and great power. Wenwu amasses an army of warriors called the Ten Rings and conquers many kingdoms and topples governments throughout history.



    In 1996, Wenwu begins searching for the village of Ta Lo, which is said to harbor various mythical beasts, in order to expand his power. He finds the entrance of the village, but is stopped from entering by the village's guardian, Ying Li. The two fall in love and have two children, Shang-Chi and Xialing. Wenwu abandons the ten rings and his organization to be with his family. However, Li is eventually murdered by the Iron Gang, old rivals of the Ten Rings, and Wenwu once again takes up the ten rings to massacre them and resume his criminal activities. Shang-Chi begins training in martial arts and is sent by Wenwu at the age of 14 to assassinate the leader of the Iron Gang. After fulfilling his mission, a traumatized Shang-Chi escapes to San Francisco, where he adopts the name "Shaun".



    In the present day, Shang-Chi works as a valet with his best friend Katy. While on the bus on their way to work, Shang-Chi and Katy are attacked by the Ten Rings led by Razor Fist. Shang-Chi fights them off, but discovers that his pendant given to him by his mother has been taken. Fearing that the Ten Rings will attack Xialing for her pendant, Shang-Chi decides to track her down and reveals his past to Katy, who agrees to help him.

    They find her at an underground fight club in Macau, which she owns; Xialing expresses her resentment toward Shang-Chi and their father. The fight club is then attacked by the Ten Rings, with Wenwu unexpectedly arriving to capture Shang-Chi, Katy, and Xialing.



    They are taken to the Ten Rings' compound, where Wenwu reveals that he believes Li is still alive and is being kept in Ta Lo, using the two pendants to create a map that can be used to enter the village. Wenwu plans to destroy the village after freeing his wife and imprisons his children and Katy when they object. The three escape the compound with the help of former actor Trevor Slattery, whom the Ten Rings imprisoned for impersonating Wenwu.



    Guided by Slattery's hundun companion Morris, the group drives to Ta Lo to warn the village of the Ten Rings and meet Li's sister Ying Nan. She reveals to the group the history of Ta Lo: thousands of years ago, it was attacked by the soul-consuming Dweller-in-Darkness and his minions. However, the village was saved by a dragon called the Great Protector, who helped seal the Dweller and his minions in a mountain. According to Nan, the Dweller-in-Darkness has been influencing Wenwu into believing Li is still alive so he will use the rings to break the seal. The villagers, Shang-Chi, Xialing, and Katy train and prepare for their arrival.

    Shang-Chi and Katy return to San Francisco, where they are summoned by the sorcerer Wong to accompany him to the Sanctum Sanctorum. In a mid-credits scene, Shang-Chi speaks with Bruce Banner and Carol Danvers, and discover that the ten rings are emitting a mysterious signal. In a post-credits scene, Xialing becomes the new leader of the Ten Rings.

    Indie Comics Spotlight: Blankets

    Indie Comics Spotlight: Blankets

    Trigger warning this week. There is a discussion about abuse as it comes up in the book this week. If you are a victim of abuse or you know someone who needs help, please to to RAINN or to Four in One to get the help and services you need. 

    This week, Tony is joined by the Reface master himself, Mr. Blake Byles.

Gazvgfc ,

So much content!!

Great podcasts for all sorts of fans of comics and movies

Dan-Thing ,

A Comic Book Community

I’m relatively new to this podcast but I’m here until the end of the line!

The consistency and diversity of the topics and subjects tackled it’s almost a podcast a day coming straight off the production line!

Whether it’s Max delving into the Marvel/DC bible to pull out classic parables or Tony celebrating the creative freedom of independent comics. It is all quality podcasting at the highest level!

The idea of creating podcast/comic community all under one banner is actually I think an inspired idea!

Bringing people together via comic books has always been a dream of mine which CIM is slowly but surely achieving which is something to be incredibly proud of.

Give these guys your support and keep these comics in perpetual motion...

Awesome

Badass, I love it!
