Peter Fenzel, Mark Lee, and Matthew Wrather overthink Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the surprise Labor Day hit which is the newest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and an answer to some of the Orientalism which has characterized Marvel’s previous Asian characters.

Spoiler alert for Planet of the Apes.
