Tremault has delivered another quality MCU edit. I am a big fan of tremault's Cpt Marvel edit where Brie Larson is almost likeable as Cpt Marvel so I knew we were in good hands with the Shangi Chi edit. All the changes made in the film I agree with and IMO make it a superior product. I particularly enjoyed the trimming andor removal of cringy Trevor moments, Abomination vs. Wong cage fight and the ending is much more focused on Shang Chi and his father relationship and less CGI festy and cringy moments. Would highly recommend as the go to version of Shang Chi and look forward to more tremault MCU edits in the future.

The quote in the beginning was a brilliant idea!

I do not want to go through all the edits that were done, I can only say that the movie is now shorter, more streamlined and simply better with this edit.

This is the definite version for this movie in my opinion. The main story, characters and relationships have been given more focus in this edit, and everything else is being minimized, as it should be.

I can only recommend this edit and to check out any other edit from tremault. In general, she seems to have a real grasp of what is important in a movie and what is definitely not and gets creative with moving scenes around or changing music to add to the story or even change the story to the better.

Thumbs up and a clear recommendation from this bloke!

Oh and by the way, I find Katy in this edit actually funny! :)

I'm really glad you found some appreciation for Katy! I myself grew rather fond of her after removing certain parts of the movie.

The short of it: This replaces the theatrical version. Go, watch and enjoy!
Technically excellent. Coherent narrative. Clear character development.

There were a few moments that I missed though:
- cagefight of Wong vs Abomination. Yes it's a "WTF?" scene, but it's memorable.
- Katy's amazing arrow. Another memorable moment, and a perfect illustration of Lao Tzu's saying that opens the edit.
- Trevor playing dead on the battlefield.

The last two also would've added to the runtime of the speedy final battle. Despite missing these details, this edit wins over the theatrical with clearer focus on character development and less CGI fest.

Extra praise for tremault's openness to feedback and willingness to incorporate good points in the edit.

Thank you so much! It's a shame those removals were missed by you, I do recognise that it reduces their stories and I was thinking about doing a Katy and Trevor special at some point, but this edit was meant to be pure Shang Chi and his family so it was inescapable :)

Before I proceed with my review, I want to say that I really loved this movie, even the ACT 3 that many people disliked a lot. It's not perfect by any means, but its flaws are bearable. My problems with this movie were actually, more or less, what the editor tried to fix. Silly humor, the super annoying Katy character and generally the unnecessary focus to secondary comic relief characters. When it comes to the issues that the movie had with its villain, I didn't mind that much. I mean, fine I'll accept that for some reason the big blade guy says to Shang that "you and your sister will pay", but there is absolutely no explanation about it afterwards, I'll accept the out of the blue cage fight between the two siblings or that Trevor for some mind blowing reason knows the language of the creature etc.

From what I saw from other reviews about this edit, I almost completely agree, so I won't repeat what the others already said. I'll just say that it was an almost excellent editing work and it truly achieved its purpose to a great extent. Besides the pacing at the end, as others mentioned, I actually also found the first time we see Shang and Katy part, pretty rushed. I mean, it didn't convince me at all that these two had such a bond that Katy would follow him to China. I'm guessing there are not any good scenes to add to that part and I certainly prefer it without them, but I just wanted to mention that.

Otherwise, I really enjoyed this edit, it is definitely recommended and I believe that it will be my go-to version of the film, although I want to check one more time the theatrical in order to decide, because I have only seen it once.

Thanks to anyone who read my review and thank you Tremault for your work!
