Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings | Official Trailer

First, I would like to start off that I love martial arts movies, so this movie was awesome! I watched this movie with some friends after getting a rental DVD from Red Box at the local grocery store. We watched the movie straight on from beginning to end without getting up from our seats at home as we were glued to it. There are some movies that you can go take a break during a “slow-scene”, but this movie had action from beginning to the end- even to after the credits as most Marvel movies does.

While watching the movie , I was able to some-what relate to most of the background of the characters as an “Asian American”. As a second-generation Asian American, one kind of lives two lives (culturally) – One as an “American” growing -up in the United States and second as an “Asian” with holding on the “Asian culture” of your parent(s).

SPOILER ALERT!!!

Why I’m writing about this particular movie is because I thought the story of Xu Wenwu, the father was very relevant to life challenges overall (past, present, and future). A father that lost his wife and couldn’t live his “life” fully as he wasn’t able to handle his grief or “lost”. Unfortunately, his kids (son and daughter) had to “live” their lives “facing” their father’s grief and challenges. I love the scene when the son (Shang -Chi ) quoted (paraphrasing), “When you lost mom, you forgot we (him and his sister) were alive”. Stop living the past, and move on..”

This reminds me of my recent personal video reflection I recently made on..

Reflection on: Isaiah 43-“Forget the Past”

..which I included an excerpt of this movie at the time of the making.

So how do “we” move on from the “past” (e.g. hurts, mistakes, trauma, sins, etc..)? Do you have any personal suggestions or personal advice from your own life? If Xu had that “support” from others, you think he would’ve been able to handle his wife’s death a “little” easier or better?
