Now that the movie has been released, is there any evidence of how strong his light shields are?
If at all possible, I prefer feats that are performed after he masters the use of magic, not when he was still training. Thanks.

Okay, so I'm trying to think of a way to answer this without spoiling the film for those who may not have seen it.
The mandalas he created consistently got stronger through the film (which I'm sure you expected), but they weren't mastery level strong by the end of the film, and they didn't need to be because the resolution to the story made use of a different kind of power. The general feeling I got is that he still has some learning to do because his abilities haven't completely matured. We have more to this part of his character arc to look forward to in subsequent films.
I'm not familiar with the comics, so I don't know how the stories compare, but as a film, I do recommend it.
