Was wondering why this thread was mostly dead - and it only took until the last couple of posts to figure out why. :(

An outstanding movie, easily top 10 of all MCU movies imo (some even argue one of the best origin stories of the MCU).

Tony Leung definitely did not phone it in, Simu Liu was probably the most 'wooden' actor but he still did a great job. The fight scenes were well choreographed and not a victim of the shaky cam and quick cuts that so often infect many action movies nowadays. Must see for anyone who is into the MCU.

Enjoyed the experience. Totally different to other marvel movies. Like the respect it gave to Asian culture. The translations weren’t exact but it happens and the gist was there at least.

The foreshadow was strong.


Pretty much jumped into it straight away. I think the trailer cut and pasted some speaking parts to
Add drama.

No animals were harmed.

Sequel or follow on has been set.

A pretty solid couple of hours of entertainment. I liked that they didn't bring the rest of the Marvel universe into it too much.

7/10

Maybe I missed something but

why was there a big deal about getting through the forest when they had helicopters?

i believe that even flying over the forest shields and conceals the hidden place. it only appears if you follow the path.
So use of drones, Google Earth or GPS was out? But it seems that driving a BMW was a requirement!
