Arguably the best Marvel origin story and one of the best action movies of all time, full stop. T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman, RIP) may be the Black Panther, but it's the women of Wakanda who stand out in this megahit. There's Shuri (Letitia Wright) with all of her brilliant gadgets and technology, Okoye (Danai Gurai), the head of the all-female special forces, Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o), the superspy, and, of course, the magnificent queen mother Ramonda (Angela Bassett).
Because of the pandemic, some great movies didn't get their full due at the box office. One exception: Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings, a Marvel origin story that broke several records and was one of the highest-grossing films of the year. Stream it on Disney+ and find out why this was one of the best movies of 2021. 153554b96e
