Shang-Chi is very, very good. How good? According to Rotten Tomatoes, it’s the highest-rated comic book movie of all time in terms of its audience score.

As spotted by Redditor iCXNoLar, Shang-Chi has received thousands of overwhelmingly positive votes and currently sits at a whopping 98% on the movie aggregator.

That’s not only better anything in the MCU (Spider-Man: Far From Home is the next biggest hit on with audiences at 95%), but further beyond too. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse ‘only’ managed 93%, while Christopher Nolan’s iconic middle movie in his Bat-trilogy, The Dark Knight, reached 94%.

Marvel's 'Shang-Chi' jabs, flips Asian American film cliches

  Marvel's 'Shang-Chi' jabs, flips Asian American film cliches LOS ANGELES (AP) — Like a lot of Asian actors, Simu Liu has played the nameless guy who can do martial arts but inevitably loses out to a more skilled white guy. It was one of his very first stunt jobs. "Yeah, I took my paycheck and I went home. I didn’t really complain about it,” said the Chinese-Canadian actor. “But then, you look at the bigger picture and you look at the opportunities that are available to Asian performers. You see that yeah, past a certain point, there really isn’t that deeper representation.

Of course, there is a big caveat. For one, Shang-Chi is dwarved by a decent amount of its peers when it comes to its RT score from critics. The Marvel Phase 4 movie has been reviewed positively by 92% of critics, which is nothing to be sniffed at but doesn’t match up to Black Panther’s 96% on the Tomatometer, nor the original Iron Man’s 94%.

Then, there’s the fact that the majority of votes haven’t piled in yet. Shang-Chi’s Rotten Tomatoes run hasn’t yet garnered 10,000 votes – compared to nearly 250,000 for some comic book movies.

Still, it’s testament to Shang-Chi to succeed where so many others have faltered. In an age of review bombing (and a pandemic), it has still managed to soar both with critics and audiences. That near-perfect score may waver in the near future but, for now, the MCU newcomer has shown up the big boys.
