Review: The Great Wall

How much battle is behind that Wall.
The film the Great Wall explores two mercenaries that discover the elite army that protects the Great Wall of China from monstrous creatures. Forced to keep the secrets of the wall protected, the duo find themselves involved in the fight to save humanity.

While this movie had great fight scenes and really intriguing designs and techniques for battle preparations, I wasn't "wowed". Without going into specifics, I honestly expected more from the plot but instead I was left feeling like I wanted more. They didn't delve into certain things like I wanted and focused a bit too much on the suspense factor.

With that said, the suspense in this movie is intense and worth the watch. It kept me interested with the varying angles and camera shots during the battle scenes and I even jumped a time or two (watch it in 3D if you can!). Also the humor through the quips and sarcasm kept me entertained and also kept the movie from getting too serious and on the verge of a light horror film.

All in all, I would say this film is not a must see but at the same time if you have some time it's worth watching Matt Damon kick butt.

2.5 out of 5

  1. Sorry, we never received your confirmation to attend. Ergo we have not yet seen Great WALL.

  2. Great movie. Plenty of action and good conquers evil 👌

  3. I absolutely loved this matt damon mocie. I'm so glad that they introduced the mvoie at the start as being one now the legends of the great wall. Because I definitely would have lost interest if they would say this really happened in the imperial China days.

  4. I agree Ashley. Visually stunning and love Matt Damon.

  5. This movie starring Matt Damon had alot of action.The monster lizards moved faster then the eye.

  6. I'm not sure what Matt Damon is doing in China but I'd love to see him fight some mythological demons and creatures

  7. Great movie lots action and Matt Damon is the man
