The Great Wall REVIEWS
A Very Entertaining Film
As a constant film goer I was really impressed with this film. It was entertaining. The story worked well. The acting was great. And the effects were really impressive. I watched it on a big screen in Bangkok and enjoyed the experience. The sound was equally impressive. . I just can't understand why the really negative reviews abound. Some are cur...
There are many legends about The Great Wall, this is one of them...
I just saw it in Romania in a good 3d cinema. The movie tells a legend. And it tells it so beautifully! The cinematography is breathtaking and for all the duration I was more than a movie spectator, I felt part of that legend, a character from that story, present among the troops defending the wall. If a movie succeeds in delivering such an experi...
'The Great Wall' isn't so great
The famous Great Wall was built to keep out the evil hordes: people with a lot of problems, drug dealers, murderers rapists, and (I assume) some good people. Wait a minute, wrong wall. . Regardless, The Great Wall embraces a new direction currently seen in filmmaking. Many movies, like Transformers 4, have featured Chinese locations prominently wi...
I enjoy it a lot. Ignore the critics.
I can't stand these unfair and unreliable reviews.. So, this is my first review for a Chinese film. I would say I felt the same feeling of excitement when I watched Lord of the rings (LOTR). I even like The Great Wall more than the hobbit.. We've watch hundreds of movies with bad reviews and we knew that as long a film has at least one 10/10 fair ...
Not a masterpiece for sure, yet enjoyable
If you don't have any expectations, this film might surprise you a bit. I really liked the special effects, even if I started laughing when I first saw the antagonists. . Most scenes between battles were quite awkward, full of clichés. Yet, once the battle begins, any cliché this film might have is really fun to watch and not at all annoying. . ...
I've never thought it would be THIS good...
I'll be honest, I thought that this movie will be very bad. Came out in the month where movies expected to be blessed with negative reviews, it was no surprise that I thought it would be one of those ill-fated movies.. In the end, I've underestimated it.. "The Great Wall" follows William (Matt Damon), a mercenary who tries to obtain the "Black Pow...
This is a mediocre popcorn movie with a Matt Damon seriously trying to keep a straight face while "acting".. Some extra terrestrial lizards are causing trouble in medieval China and Matty comes to the rescue!. The graphics are subpar even for a video game and the action scenes are lacking the usual fluidity and finesse that other Chinese epic film...
Exercising Your Damons
Millions of people watching the 2017 Oscars would have seen Jimmy Kimmel roasting poor Matt Damon as a part of their long running 'feud'. At one point he points out that Matt gave up the leading role in "Manchester by the Sea" to star in a "Chinese ponytail movie" that "went on to lose $80 million at the box office". "The Great Wall" is that movie...
We saw it so you don't have to.
Why did we go and see 'The Great Wall? Well we don't mind Matty Damon, we, or at least me, don't mind the odd Chinese action pic, and we've seen and walked along (a bit of) the real thing. AND there were monsters and the shorts hinted at a suggestion of 'Starship Troopers', the greatest movie ever made. And big walls are in the news! This is a mov...
Don't waste your money
Total disaster! I can not think of one redeeming reason to see this. I'm glad it was a matinée. I can suspend belief with movies but this was just a bridge too far! The script writing was clunky, there was little to no chemistry between the main characters. I'm not exactly sure why William DaFoe was even in the movie. Stay away! ...
