European mercenaries searching for black powder become embroiled in the defense of the Great Wall of China against a horde of monstrous creatures.
The pure stunt work of the actors in this movie was amazing to see amongst the fight scenes. The concept of The Great Wall being a defence against monsters with an army ready to defend China is something I have never heard of before and was conveyed well on the big screen.
Matt Damon was a great addition to this movie and I really enjoyed the collaboration with the Chinese film industry. It was interesting seeing the intelligence of the monsters. The design of them was something I had not seen before and most were designed with military tactics in mind.
The different bands of the Chinese army were a visual feast. The uniforms were a credit to the costume department. Overall, this was a interesting and visual monster movie with a unique idea carried out well.
