Digital Spy were amongst the lucky few to receive early veiwing.
They described it as “distinct and fresh” film that presented audiences with “almost an entirely insular story: one of grief, betrayal and martial-arts magic”.
The Independent said: “Even the film’s fight sequences bristle with emotion – as acts of flirtation, rage, or even love.
Empire echoed the strong praise, saying: “Featuring funny and endearing moments amid beautifully choreographed action sequences, Shang-Chi excels as a story about family and how it can be twisted by grief.”
The film is due to hit cinemas on 3rd September.
