The Verse Episode 23: ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ Discussed

We shift gears this week to review Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, starring Simu Liu, Awkwafina, and Tony Leung. Simu plays Shang-Chi, a trained assassin and martial arts master trying to live his new life away from his father and the terrorist group he founded. But he’s in for the family reunion of a lifetime in an epic story of reluctant heritage, dragons, and darkness. Tune in to hear our poetic summaries of the story, our favorite (and least favorite) moments, and give our final grade so you know if it’s time to break out the popcorn and candy. Spoiler alert: we needed the entire episode to give this film the praise it deserves.

And once you listen… let us know, do you agree or disagree with our ratings? How many rings out of ten would you rate this film? Tell us all about it on our Twitter page, @TheVerseCast where we also post news, announcements about the pod, and collect listener questions.

Steven Prusakowski has been a cinephile as far back as he can remember, literally. At the age of ten, while other kids his age were sleeping, he was up into the late hours of the night watching the Oscars. Since then, his passion for film, television, and awards has only grown. For over a decade he has reviewed and written about entertainment through publications including Awards Circuit and Screen Radar. He has conducted interviews with some of the best in the business - learning more about them, their projects and their crafts. He is a graduate of the RIT film program. You can find him on Twitter and Letterboxd as @FilmSnork – we don’t know why the name, but he seems to be sticking to it.
