The first social media reactions for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the latest instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, are finally here.
Find a roundup of Twitter “early reactions” below!
I really dug #ShangChi! There is a lot not in the trailers (maybe avoid ads in the next couple of weeks I fear will show more?) and it has its own vibe and distinct elements that make it stand out and not feel like a standard origin story. And Simu Liu makes for an awesome hero.

When people ask me what I thought of a movie I always ask myself would I see the film again tomorrow. I would definitely watch #shangchi again tomorrow. Can’t wait to talk about it more.
Also the first after the credits scene is a great one… pic.twitter.com/GGTHSi4uoC

Wow, #ShangChi hooked me! Funny, visually stunning, just dazzling. @SimuLiu blows it out of the park as does @awkwafina. Also, gotta shout out Tony Leung just because. @Marvel @Disney https://t.co/SwAyVUUBkk

There are nits to be picked, but #ShangChi is a terrifically entertaining piece of blockbuster filmmaking. It's much better than the trailers (lots of goodies unspoiled) and is unafraid to be weird and fantastical. It is exactly the shot in the arm that Marvel and Disney needed. pic.twitter.com/b2VcSEKidU

#ShangChi is such a personal, family story at its core. That’s when it’s at its best.
The third act is full of surprises but sometimes is a little crazier than is needed. Ultimately delivers epic action and the intimate moments to land. Big MCU stuff.
Can’t wait to watch again! pic.twitter.com/4zy7HiF5EO

#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

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

#ShangChi is fantastic. It's full of INCREDIBLE, beautifully choreographed fight scenes and full of badass women. Get ready to know Simu Liu's name if you don't already. Marvel has another hit on its hands. pic.twitter.com/3efV1kzJ7O

#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!

I know it must come as a shock to see a Marvel film getting a positive reception online, but I’m sure it’s just a fluke. *insert winky face*
Seriously though, I’m glad it sounds like Shang-Chi is going to give us something fresh and exciting in the MCU. I definitely cannot wait for the fight scenes. If the early reactions are any indication, we are in for a treat.
