The Great Wall (Movie)

TheGreatWallMain Cast: Matt Damon, Andy Lau, Tian Jing, William Dafoe

Review: 6 out of 10 stars.

 

A little magnet goes a long way.

Interesting CGI movie with a queen beast called tao tie 饕餮 feeding smaller beasts, in which that the movie made them look like dinosaurs.
Good cinematology with beautiful scenery. An almost too simple story with the sole purpose to showcase CGI monsters.
Not that great acting from the deadpanned faces Matt Damon and the Chinese actors (except Andy Lau) who were speaking English like reading the prompt and without emotions.

Keywords: scifi, fantasy, war, adventure, moviereview

 

— Spoiler Ahead —

 

Way too simple to just just a magnet and it can tame a giant monster. If the producer/writer can spend that kind of budget on everything else, one should think they should think a little harder to come up with something more inventive.
