The Great Wall REVIEWS

  • A Very Entertaining Film

    December 29th, 2016

    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...

    December 26th, 2016

    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

    March 7th, 2017

    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.

    December 31st, 2016

    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 ...

  • I've never thought it would be THIS good...

    January 14th, 2017

    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...

  • Not a masterpiece for sure, yet enjoyable

    January 2nd, 2017

    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. . ...

  • Jurassic Chan

    March 25th, 2017

    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

    March 18th, 2017

    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...

  • Pathetic Monsters, Predictable Plot, & Poor Suspense!!!

    February 26th, 2017

    Creature features like Chinese director Zhang Yimou's sprawling $150 million fantasy epic "The Great Wall" must bristle with monsters that not only send a chill down your spine but also paralyze you with fear. Sadly, neither Yimou, who helmed "House of Flying Daggers," nor his lackluster special effects team have conjured up monsters that would fr...

  • A visual feast, excellent sound design and performance

    January 8th, 2017

    I don't remember the last time I felt a movie was too short. This movie kept me entertained all the way. The chemistry between Matt and Pedro is great. The Chinese actors were good, they weren't supposed to speak perfect English. Their facial expressions were good and the directing is better than a lot of similar popcorn movies.The sound design ru...
