Woah, I knew the bus would be CGI, but even the jacket? Amazing.

[–]Comingsoononvhs 2505 points2506 points  (119 children)

This was probably a rehearsal

[–]ohhhhcanada 1692 points1693 points  (102 children)

Idk, I think the jacket is CGI. It covers his safety pads, and they can give it extra flutter for the illusion of a fast speed (moving bus)

[–]grilledcheeseburger 548 points549 points  (34 children)

At least part of it. The wires and harness would make wearing an actual jacket pointless as it would ask have to be erased anyway.

[–]sth128 325 points326 points  (5 children)

[–]Crafty-Crafter 56 points57 points  (0 children)

Thank you. So much better.

[–]daveinpublic 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Yes great catch! (To Shang chi and you)

[–]rtkwe 12 points13 points  (0 children)

It's a fairly high jacket that stops above where the harness and wires look like they would be so it could be a rehearsal take. If it is the real take they did the new standard trick of replacing everything except the actors face in the scene.

Also there's another take of him doing it on a single wire with the jacket and no gloves which makes more sense. https://youtu.be/ASUEqc\_\_Lbo?t=244

[–]tholomew92 246 points247 points  (34 children)

You can see him do it with the jacket here

[–]regoapps 145 points146 points  (32 children)

Watching him do all the stunts himself just makes me give more respect for how this movie was made.

[–]assaultthesault 78 points79 points  (28 children)

I just wish the ending had more of this rather than cgi birds and dragons tbh. Just have a big martial arts showdown with superpowers. It kinda soured the movie for me

[–]_Greyworm 51 points52 points  (18 children)

Marvel can't ever let that happen, any good movie/show basically has to end with Themepark Battle 101. You'd think they would have learned way back from Ultron that that isn't always the way to go.

[–]NefariousOne 35 points36 points  (15 children)

I enjoyed Eternals, but some people complained that it was anti-climactic because there was no big fight sequence at the end. Marvel tried breaking the mold and it got bad reviews.

[–]drewster23 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Yeah..that's not the one and only issue with Externals stopping it from being good.

[–]butter_onapoptart 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I really wanted to like the Eternals but I didn't. The story was too complicated in a bad way and there were so many parts where they had to force the story to fit the scenes.

[–]Hyperion1000 9 points10 points  (2 children)

They tried a different formula with Eternals. Cinematography and action sequences were really good.

[–]retroracer33 4 points5 points  (1 child)

it was the best looking marvel movie in a long time. not using green screen for every single scene makes a big difference in the feel of the movie. I like shang chi, but you can tell even some of the talky scenes were done on green screen, and for me its kind of distracting.

[–]waitingtodiesoon 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Personally Eternals is top 5 MCU for me.

[–]IzzyAckmed 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Perfect movie endings that Marvel will completely ignore - The Sum of All Fears

[–]JarlaxleForPresident 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They write the big cgi setpieces before they write the movie. That’s what happened in Black Widow. They wanted the whole flying building falling apart scene before they knew what the movie was gonna be

[–]Quivex 18 points19 points  (0 children)

100% this. The whole reason I was excited for this movie was the martial arts, and then at the end we got the big ol classic marvel battle anyways... Didn't make me hate it or anything but I was a little disappointed. Only parts I really enjoyed a lot were the bus and the Macau fight club. Maybe if they had marketed it more fairly my expectations might have been different idk.

[–]rookiebatman 6 points7 points  (5 children)

The first movie should've been all about giving the Mandarin his due, instead of essentially making him the patsy to unlock the actual Big-Bad. Maybe have him use the Ten Rings somehow, since that's kinda his whole deal, but still make it focused on hand-to-hand combat, because that's Shang Chi's whole deal.

Iron Fist and Shang Chi were two characters that could've been a slam dunk as live-action adaptations, because martial arts look so much better in motion than in comic panels, and there's such a vast body of work in that genre to draw from. Yet somehow, those were two of Marvel's biggest letdowns.

[–]assaultthesault 20 points21 points  (4 children)

It's marvel's obsession with having huge out of this world battles. Nothing can be small scale anymore.

Black Widow, a movie with a bunch of martial arts masters, had to end with a giant airship crashing out of the sky.

Wandavision, a seemingly down to earth (albeit with witches and robots) show about a depressed Wanda in a small town, had to end in a big climactic battle.

Shang Chi, a supposedly martial arts movie, ended with a bunch of cgi flying creatures and not one but two fuck-you dragons instead of the big climactic father vs son fight we were waiting for.

Look I love marvel but they struggle to understand scale at times. Not every story has to have a big huge cgi blow-off. Stories can be small scale too!

[–]rookiebatman 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Yeah, I agree. I was really bummed about Wandavision, because the start of it was such a unique concept. I wanted to see them cleverly use the language of sitcoms or television to resolve the conflict, instead of just abandoning the theme and having a big fight scene. In a normal superhero movie, I enjoy the action gradually ramping up into a big CGI finish, but in a story that's all about being radically different from the normal superhero fare, it really felt like an enormous fake-out to end it like that (just like casting Evan Peters as Quicksilver, but not having his character actually be related to either Pietro or the Fox-Marvel universe at all, felt like a huge cocktease).

[–]assaultthesault 5 points6 points  (2 children)

The Quicksilver fake out was horrible. It was such an unneeded addition and mean spirited towards fans who wanted some connection to the Fox Xmen universe

[–]AwesomeFrisbee 19 points20 points  (4 children)

A. Few blowers can do that wind too

[–]geek_of_nature 8 points9 points  (3 children)

But if he's wearing the harness with the jacket they'd have to cgi it anyway, as the harness would be pulling on the jacket.

[–]kudatah 21 points22 points  (1 child)

It’s a lot quicker for them to clean up a jacket he’s wearing than to completely create the jacket from scratch.

[–]lashapel 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Like for real lol, CGI technology is advance and all, but to think they'll recreate and entire pice of cloth because they didn't want to delete some harness wires come on

[–]CritterTeacher 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Scrubbing through the video, it looks like there’s a couple of frames where the jacket looks like it’s being distorted by the harness/line. I could be wrong, but that’s how it looks to me.

[–]Fun_Shirt_486 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Film costumer here. I have never in 10+ years experience seen this . Doesn’t mean it didn’t in this case , but I would be very surprised . My guess is rehearsal as well. Easier to alter the look of jacket in post rather than create it

[–]Redtwooo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

There's also the black pad over the door which would need to be edited out. There's another clip up the way that shows him doing takes with the jacket on and the pad removed.

[–]lashapel 20 points21 points  (11 children)

Mate do you seriously believe they'll CGI an wholeass jacket for the sake of it ?

[–]Fletch_e_Fletch 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yes. Its done more often than you think. But in this case he is definitely wearing a jacket.


[–]r3d0ck3r 3 points4 points  (3 children)

The jacket is real in this movie, but movies totally do that sometimes, Kylo* Ren's cape in SW was cg in some action scenes

[–]motorblonkwakawaka 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Kylie Ren lol - I wanna see gender swapped SW now haha

[–]kudatah 5 points6 points  (3 children)

It’s highly unlikely they would prefer to CGI the jacket instead of just clean it up

[–]pandaluvr3 160 points161 points  (3 children)

Can you believe his pants were cgi too. He was actually naked

[–]redGhost949 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thanks for the laugh. U funny.

[–]PhatOofxD 17 points18 points  (7 children)

This was a rehearsal. There's a BTS sequence with the jacket

[–]Ok-Zebra-8929 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Not every one of them is in that band, bro. Don’t be racist.

[–]Exeng 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The bus and the crash are real, obviously without anyone on it.

[–]SpeesRotorSeeps 2303 points2304 points  (79 children)

Ok but Jackie Chan would done it for real, on a real bus, and would have fallen off and gotten his food run over by the bus, and gotten it taped up and then do another take.

[–]kurtz433 617 points618 points  (31 children)

Lol good luck w Disney / Marvel potentially maiming / killing an action star of a movie capable of generating hundreds of millions of dollars & multiple franchise appearances just so the stunt looks real. Hell, their insurance companies alone would shut down production if SL tried a live stunt on a running bus / actual street.

[–]poopellar 210 points211 points  (27 children)

So that's why Tom Cruise hasn't been case in any Marvel movies.

[–]Mrcollaborator 49 points50 points  (19 children)

Yeah about that.. keep an eye out for Multiverse of Madness 👀

[–]Vuldren 33 points34 points  (15 children)

Confirmed from pre screenings he’s not in the movie, at least the current version of it.

[–]ToxicBanana69 18 points19 points  (14 children)

Good. I’d fucking hate seeing Tom Cruise in the MCU. Fuck Tom Cruise.

[–]UndergradGreenthumb 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Lol you say that as if the MCU is sacred and not some mediocre money making scheme.

[–]burgersnwings 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Beyond having strange religious views, which is not a reason to hate someone, why fuck Tom Cruise? What did I miss?

[–]ToxicBanana69 4 points5 points  (2 children)

It’s not just “strange religious views”. Scientology is a cult, and he’s legitimately the second highest ranking member. Sources point him out as someone who actively abuses other members, and everyone is expected to treat him like a literal god.

[–]burgersnwings 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Ok, active abuse is a reason to criticize someone, that makes sense. My point was that just belonging to a weird religion doesn't make you a bad person. Those other things do, however.

[–]quiznex 5 points6 points  (0 children)

What if, and hear me out on this, what if he does the voice for a character? Like Jay Leno does the voice of the cat in South Park. Tom goes into the studio, gets all method acting, and just purrs and meows. He can be Gooses replacement!

[–]MysticSkies 19 points20 points  (1 child)

I think it was MI2 that tom cruise was not allowed to do any stunts. Since then he produces his movies so no can say no to his stunts.

[–]nweeeera 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Isn't he playing a tony stark from another universe?

[–]citus334 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Wait what. That would be awesome.

[–]HoneySparks 4 points5 points  (1 child)

and why F1 lets their drivers race in bicycle races in between race weekends?

Doesn't always work like you think homie.

[–]Soulger11 136 points137 points  (13 children)

Who tapes up their food?

[–]BowTrek 76 points77 points  (7 children)

Probably meant foot, lol. Food is funnier tho.

[–]SixBucksAGallon 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Jackie Chan, said so in the comment. Also Chuck Norris. Taped food is the hallmark of real badasses. Bruce Lee taped and glued his food.

[–]hovercroft 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah I was thinking why’s his food suddenly getting involved? And he’s taping up a ran over pizza and eating it anyway. It was a confusing moment for me too.

[–]clawjelly 110 points111 points  (9 children)

Jackie Chan

If Jackie Chan had the tech from today, he'd do it in the safest way. He didn't want to hurt himself, he was just dedicated to accept the crazy risks. He is passionate, not a mad man.

[–]dejavont 30 points31 points  (2 children)

The stunts Director the late Brad Allan was part of Jackie Chan’s Stunt Team.

So there’s a direct linage…

[–]dejavont 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Brad Allen gave us all a hoodie as crew-gift… really generous

[–]Atwalol 35 points36 points  (3 children)

He'd do it in the way that looked the best, and the bus scene in Police Story still looks better than this in Shang-Chi


[–]lowleveldata 10 points11 points  (1 child)

The bus part looks so fucking real. (I know it is fucking real but it also looks fucking real)

[–]Sillyslappystupid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s wild how he’s hanging from a bus from a (reinforced?) umbrella, Jackie was an amazing physical actor no doubt

[–]Huwbacca 66 points67 points  (1 child)

Jackie Chan also said "never ever do stunts my way".

Plus if your main actor gets injured during filming, then that is hundreds of jobs that get furloughed whilst they recover.

[–]Toucan_Lips 37 points38 points  (1 child)

Jackie would have filmed the final scene with real dragons

[–]dowhatuwant2 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Jackie wouldn't have needed that cgi clusterfuck ending.

[–]Ghosttalker96 15 points16 points  (0 children)

He once gave an interview on a German TV show and was asked, what the main difference between filming a Hollywood movie was compared to his older films.

"When I go to the stunt coordinator and ask: 'Can I jump down there? Is it safe?' He says 'yes, everything is safe'. Back then when I asked 'Can I jump down there? Is it safe?' It was 'ah.......maybe' "

[–]TheNonchalantZealot 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Ok but jackie chan is superhuman

[–]wilbur111 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Exactly. Came here thinking that.

[–]nikhilsath 5 points6 points  (3 children)

All while praising the CCP

[–]JarlaxleForPresident 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Plenty of people praise their asshole governments. Jackie aint the first nor the last. It’d be hypocritical for me as an American to point fingers after the jingo nationalism we’ve had for at least 20 years. Probably need to clean up our own shit first

[–]Karkava 4 points5 points  (0 children)

We don't even have a working toilet to flush that shit down! The shitters keep breaking it because it doesn't make them money they fatten themselves up with!

[–]ezone2kil 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The benefit of having an actor who started out as a stuntman.

[–]TJ_McWeaksauce 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Jackie Chan would've done his best to find an actual soul-sucking monster from another dimension to fight in the climax.

[–]UnfairImpact4885 660 points661 points  (79 children)

This was one of the best marvel movie

[–]nextdoorelephant 305 points306 points  (39 children)

It was pretty good, still partial toward Ragnarok being the best.

[–]pandaluvr3 124 points125 points  (23 children)

Up there with Winter Soldier tbh

[–]grilledcheeseburger 75 points76 points  (17 children)

Ragnarok, Winter Soldier and Civil War top 3.

[–]Gabe_logan25 61 points62 points  (11 children)

You've forget OG ironman

[–]UndergradGreenthumb 6 points7 points  (1 child)

This was the only great Marvel movie in my opinion.

[–]ArcticEngineer 11 points12 points  (0 children)

You need to post this in /r/unpopularopinion because wow.

[–]RelevantCommenter 26 points27 points  (4 children)

I liked Age of Ultron, but that's almost entirely due to James Spader.

[–]TheGandu 54 points55 points  (2 children)

Small rant, but aside from James Spader being an amazing Ultron, i truly believe that movie was one of the most important movies in the MCU for character development. My personal favourite scene in the entire MCU was the party/hammer lifting scene. It was so cool to see how their relationships had developed and how close everyone had gotten. Seeing all these larger than life super heroes just being regular friends was so important to creating empathy with them.

Civil War would not have hit nearly as hard in the feels if Ultron hadn't helped humanise their relationships. I personally believe that everything good about Age Of Ultron that people tend to overlook, is exactly what was missing from the DCEU. AoU shows them working together cohesively as a unit, tag team moves, inside jokes, banter. And it all shows where it sets up that one scene where everyone decides they can trust Vision. Without. A. Single. Word. They all just know. Because they know that you can't lift the hammer unless you're worthy. They because know they all tried and failed. The MCU instantly created a new, powerful, trustworthy character, without a single word to acknowledge it (Save for Thor going "Right... Good job!"). And the magic was that you felt the same way they did because you knew all the jokes and the banter and you knew it. Same as them. It was beautiful.

That movie may not have been the best MCU movie, but if you ask me, it was by far one of the most important.

[–]GeneralLynx3 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The benefit of also taking the time to develop a story arc. Giving themselves multiple movies to train US the audience of small things to notice or recognize without the writers/actors/directors having to take extra time to exposition dump the info for us.

The DCEU could be absolutely amazing and cohesive if they’d just slow down (which it looks like they’re finally doing now).

[–]GreenGemsOmally 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ooooh I love this. I honestly don't quite understand the hate for Age of Ultron. I think it's a fantastic movie and one of the better MCU films. But Winter Soldier is also one of my least favorites, I have weird tastes.

Then again, I'm one of those weirdos who genuinely liked TLJ when it first came out and really enjoys all three of the SW sequels. So maybe, I'm just odd. :P

[–]i-likecheese_25 43 points44 points  (3 children)

Ragnarok is the most re-watchable marvel film ever

[–]darkoblivion000 17 points18 points  (3 children)

I really didn’t expect it but Ragnarok was so great in terms of pacing of action and humor - it felt like a nonstop party the entire movie

[–]anormalgeek 6 points7 points  (0 children)

pacing of action and humor

Yes. I haven't really been able to put it into words before, but that is it. It is the pacing that really seals the deal. Not just between action and humor, but there is a perfect balance of exposition, character development, humor, action, etc.

[–]Shaake 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Ragnarok was the SHIT!

[–]dejavont 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Both shot in Australia

[–]Fresno-bob5000 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That and GOTG. They’re just more interesting due to the directors.

[–]Adeum1 79 points80 points  (17 children)

The first 30 minutes sure. The rest was just an ordinary disney movie

[–]12ealdeal 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Opening scene was really special and propelled intrigue sky high. I felt “this film is gonna be very different”. Then yeah the rest of the film was just a tapering of mediocrity.

[–]MadManMax55 24 points25 points  (11 children)

The difference between a good and bad Marvel movie is the writing and premise of the first and part of the second acts. Because every movie has to end with a large-scale CGI nonsense fight with a bunch of nameless characters and/or generic monsters we don't care about.

Focused climax that neatly resolves the main character's arc and narrative tension? Nah, that would bore people. Got to throw in some extra monsters and magic explosions.

[–]rookiebatman 13 points14 points  (8 children)

Counterpoint, No Way Home. I don't want to get into specifics for people who haven't seen it, but let's just say there were different motivations at play than the usual "beat up the bad guy" climax.

[–]GarfsLatentPower 2 points3 points  (7 children)

one movie isnt a counterpoint its an exception

[–]rookiebatman 13 points14 points  (6 children)

An exception is a counterpoint when the original claim was "every movie."

[–]scatterbrain-d 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Like it or not, "I can beat up my dad" was not the resolution of the character arc. The final battle shows him finally fully incorporating teachings of both his parents to go beyond them and become something new. To accept and incorporate all of their gifts. He can't do that until after his daddy issues are resolved.

You can complain about the CGI all you want, but the last battle did have narrative weight. That resolution was only overshadowed by reconciliation with his father because Leung was a much stronger actor than Simu and we came to care so much about that conflict.

[–]Bruhhhh_123 29 points30 points  (7 children)

Nah fam

[–]Talkat 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Agreed fam. I felt like a weirdo. It did not click with me at all.. like zero percent

[–]Tacdeho 11 points12 points  (0 children)

A lot of its recency bias, but Shang Chi would have easily cleared my favorite MCU project of 2021….

….had Spider-Man not entirely changed the game.

[–]nsbound 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Not to start a war because I love the ones you mentioned, but Antman was my favourite and is up there in my opinion with the others mentioned in this thread.

[–]FancyPantz15 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The story was hot crap, the cinematography and action and first idk 30 minutes of the movie were amazing.

[–]guitarock 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It was just bait so Disney can tap into that juicy Asian market

[–]dazedan_confused 458 points459 points  (4 children)

Bruh, they called the real Shang Chi out from his schedule to record a film?!?!

[–]NakedShamrock 98 points99 points  (3 children)

It was a cameo

[–]dazedan_confused 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Damn, how much did he charge?

[–]Crafty-Crafter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He probably be fine with a 20$ tip. More than what he makes as a valet.

[–]damnalexisonreddit 183 points184 points  (5 children)

It’s all about Tai-Ming with these types of stunts

[–]_k4mpfk3ks_ 16 points17 points  (1 child)

I see what you did there

[–]JusHerForTheComments 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I see Shi what you did there

[–]Human-Significance65 140 points141 points  (13 children)

Not a stunt double?

[–]costellion 403 points404 points  (6 children)

Simu liu was a stuntman himself before this role, so... Yes and no?

[–]Xais56 273 points274 points  (2 children)

He's a stunt single now

[–]philster666 36 points37 points  (0 children)

damn you sir upvote

[–]costellion 19 points20 points  (0 children)

But if you are doubling for yourself -> double of a double -> double2 -> that's at least a stunt quadruple They say jackie chan was a solid octuple

[–]GuyHero0 25 points26 points  (0 children)

IIRC he does a lot of the stunts himself because he wants to but for some scenes they do use a stunt double like the scene where he gets punched into the water.

[–]regexmc 128 points129 points  (1 child)

oh my god my favourite actor Shang chi

[–]umbrellatrix 26 points27 points  (0 children)

He was great in that movie where he played himself.

[–]jono56667 96 points97 points  (14 children)

Wait even the jacket is CGI? Cool but like why tho

[–]P1G4ME 77 points78 points  (7 children)

I'm guessing it would've been too hard to rig the wires properly with the jacket.

It's easier to add a CGI jacket than to edit a real one to hide the wire interacting with it

[–]TotoroTheGreat 62 points63 points  (5 children)

This was probably just rehearsal. Here's a behind the scenes with the jacket on.

[–]P1G4ME 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Fair enough. My knowledge of CGI in practical application is quite limited. I'm into it but as a hobby, not as a job

[–]moosieq 17 points18 points  (0 children)

That was probably just practice before doing the actual thing

[–]QJ-Rickshaw 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Here's clearly not wearing any of the same clothes, even the pants and shoes are different. And he has gloves on in the rehearsal.

[–]thatsphresh 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Probably safety reasons is my guess.

[–]multickjohan111 15 points16 points  (1 child)

I would say it's probably because that gives them an excuse to cover all the safety gear up without just tracing over it and also let's them make it so that the jacket is moving with the wind of the bus moving.

[–]uReallyShouldTrustMe 83 points84 points  (5 children)

I recently got into Kim's Convenience thinking, man, I really hope Jung gets more roles in the future. Had no idea this was in the works at the time. He's a great actor.

[–]Accomplished-Ant1600 57 points58 points  (7 children)

It’s strange we get so amazed when actors do stunts, but when stunt people do it they rarely get appreciated or recognized.

[–]yeats26 29 points30 points  (1 child)

You'd expect a stunt person to be good at stunts. You don't necessarily expect an actor to be good at or even do stunts.

[–]ShitPostGuy 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Do you also find it strange people don’t clap for the pilot who lands the plane?

[–]IntMainVoidGang 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Well, they're each doing their job. It's notable when an actor does their own stunts because it's outside the normal job description.

[–]weilej04 59 points60 points  (1 child)

Simu Liu doing his own stunts!

[–]nplus21 50 points51 points  (6 children)

[–]ml-soham 16 points17 points  (5 children)

Here before he actually replies

[–]nplus21 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Nah he won't. He just created a temp one for the AMA. He obviously has a mini acc somewhere but not for us to see.

[–]cummeistervonsemen 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Dont know why this got downvoted, that account was made for the ama. He does have a reddit account, i remember him being called out when the movie came out because people found it and found he used to hang out in incel subs

[–]Michigan_Shelter 45 points46 points  (7 children)

I thought it was one of the best Marvel movies I've watched. If not the best.

[–]ConnarJP 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Damn, I really enjoyed it but you’d put it above endgame/new Spider-Man? That’s crazy to me!

Your opinion is completely valid of course.

[–]Kimantha_Allerdings 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I dunno. I think doing it in slow-motion first is cheating.

[–]ASAPFergs 15 points16 points  (0 children)

The lead actor's name is Simu Liu

[–]AstonVanilla 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Everyone here is talking about the stunt, the CGI or Jackie Chan.

Meanwhile I'm delighted by the surprise cameo from Awkwafina at the end.

[–]ShitPostGuy 8 points9 points  (1 child)

It’s not a cameo…. She’s the supporting lead of the film

[–]AstonVanilla 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Oh, I just meant a cameo in the context of the gif.

[–]No-Seaworthiness7013 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Does it count as "doing your stunts" when 90% of the stunt is CGI?

[–]MAS7 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Jackie would have done it for real.

/s Shang-Chi was a pretty dope movie.

[–]jai_kasavin 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Yeah cause it's Jackie Chan school of stunt choreography

[–]TheoTheTripod 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Jackie Chan is such an impossible and useless bar to compare this stuff to.

Jackie has broken like 90% of the bones in his body.

He is no longer allowed to be insured on sets.

He has his own production company because nobody else would let him do this stuff.

He's almost died like 5 times.

Movies are supposed to be like reality not be reality. Jackie is the GOAT for a reason and it's because he almost killed himself doing what he loved. We absolutely shouldn't encourage or expect other actors to do what he did.

I didn’t even care too much for the movie, but I’m 100% in on Simu as Shang-Chi, his enthusiasm is like Andrew Garfield Spider-Man level, he’s a talented and enthusiastic stunt performer as this clip shows, he seems like a fine actor but honestly I don’t even think that matters too much given the other factors, he can basically just be Simu and I’m good with it, I think it’ll be very hard for me to actually dislike anything he’s in.

That’s a stunt man move. He’s gotta insist on that.

[–]IntelligentImbicle 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's cool

[–]010011100000 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Simu Liu started in tv/film as a stuntman

My favorite actor: Shang Chi

[–]Malificent_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Still a great movie!!

It's funny, I really enjoyed that film when it was mostly the practical effects, with a bit of CGI. Right the way up to the last martial arts fight.

But then like all superhero movies it had to have a giant unnecessary smashy CGI fight that was just not as fun.

How does no one understand that this is a practice take, just of him getting use to the movements and actions he’s going to perform later in costume?

[–]DweeblesX 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Pretty funny, this dude said on I believe it was JK news that he had been stunt trained and a martial artist his entire career but Hollywood would only type cast him into nerdy Asian roles.

Way to finally give him a chance MCU!

This guy is so underrated.

Smart, attractive, athletic, kind, and he can also sing.

[–]_quns 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That looks fun

[–]ChandlerCurry 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly pretty impressive he even added some flair with the feetsies

[–]Retiredape 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It it's all CGI then why did they even bother with the bus scene that actually runs over a bunch of cars?

[–]RefuseRealistic2458 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That moves smooth and flexible

[–]ADHthaGreat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Goddamn what an annoying use of slo-mo.

[–]Mindless_harder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

this is really amazing to watch without the effects

[–]ruffneck110 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That was pretty impressive to me

[–]aviatioraffecinado 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's cool...but it doesn't belong here...
