Plot summary

What is Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" movie plot summary.

Thousands of years ago, Xu Wenwu (Tony Chiu-Wai Leung) discovers the mystical ten rings which grant immortality and godly powers. He establishes the Ten Rings organization, conquering kingdoms and toppling governments throughout history. In 1996, Wenwu searches for Ta Lo, a village said to harbor mythical beasts. He travels through a magical forest to the village entrance but is stopped by guardian Ying Li (Fala Chen).
The two fall in love, and when the villagers reject Wenwu, Li chooses to leave with him and they have two children, Shang-Chi and Xialing; having found love, Wenwu abandons leadership of his organization and locks away the Ten Rings and the power and immortality it grants. When Shang-Chi is 7, Li is murdered by Wenwu's enemies, the Iron Gang. Wenwu re-wears the Ten Rings, massacres the Iron Gang, and resumes leadership of his organization. He makes Shang-Chi undergo brutal training in martial arts, but does not allow Xialing to train so she teaches herself in secret. When Shang-Chi is 14, Wenwu sends him to assassinate the Iron Gang's leader. After fulfilling his mission, a demoralized Shang-Chi runs away to San Francisco and adopts the name "Shaun".
In the present day, Shang-Chi works as a valet with his best friend Katy (Awkwafina), who does not know about his past. They are attacked on a bus by the Ten Rings, who steal a pendant that Li gave to Shang-Chi. Wenwu anonymously provides Shang-Chi with the location of Xialing and, fearing that the Ten Rings will go after Xialing's matching pendant from Li, Shang-Chi decides to meet her. He reveals his past to Katy, who insists on helping him. They find Xialing at an underground fight club in Macau, which she founded after escaping from Wenwu. The Ten Rings attack the fight club and Wenwu arrives to capture Shang-Chi, Katy, Xialing, and her pendant.
