Relieve Shang-Chi’s incredible bus fight scene in this fascinating video featuring director Destin Daniel Cretton as he explains each beat and moment.
Director Destin Daniel Cretton gives an in-depth breakdown of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings‘ bus fight scene. Released earlier this month, Shang-Chi introduces the MCU’s newest hero, who is played by rising star Simu Liu. The movie explores Shang-Chi’s origins while he confronts the past he ran away from, which involves his criminal father Wenwu (Tony Leung), aka the Mandarin. Shang-Chi has breathed life into the struggling box office; it currently stands as the highest-grossing movie of 2021 and will soon be the first of the pandemic era to cross $200 million domestically.
Shang-Chi has received special praise for its action sequences, which are among the best in the entire MCU. The bus fight scene comes early on in the movie and is the first one to give audiences an idea of what Shang-Chi can do. He and his best friend Katy (Awkwafina) are on a San Francisco bus when Shang-Chi is attacked by the Mandarin’s men, forcing him to pull out every skill he’s learned to fend them off. Shang-Chi‘s various trailers and teasers hyped up the bus scene in the lead-up to the movie’s release, making it one of the most anticipated parts.
