Starring global superstar Matt Damon and directed by one of the most breathtaking visual stylists of our time, Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of Flying Daggers), Legendary's The Great Wall tells the story of an elite force making a valiant stand for humanity on the world's most iconic structure.

  • Silly plot good film

    A cross between lord of the rings, Jurassic parc and Crouching tiger. The only two strange things about the film are matt damons inexplicable irish accent and the sub-standard CGI. But enjoy .

    It sounds great...battling ancient deamons on the Great Wall of China with two big stars (Matt Damon and William Dafoe at the helm). Sadly the CGI leaves much to be desired, and the story line and characters lack any real substance or imagination.

  • Oscar Material it Ain't but Good Fun

    I knew nothing about this movie before renting it. Yimou Zhang is a wonderful action director and imagine a Chinese epic where Jackie Chan is replaced with Matt Damon. The art direction is superb. Sets and costumes are an unusual feast for the eyes. It is true that the CGI isn't as refined as in some modern flicks but as another reviewer mentioned, grab some popcorn, suspend disbelief and enjoy. By the way Pedro Pascal (Narcos) makes a great morally dubious sidekick.

  • Racist

    By Coksh
    This movie is literally the most racist thing ever. The Chinese are struggling against a power that they are unable to beat, and only by the help of ONE white man can they overcome it, deeming the Chinese to be inferior and in the white mans debt.

    Very good from start till end
  • Enjoyable & Entertaining

    By Old Gubba
    Ignore the negative reviews, this is a good, entertaining film. I wonder what the mind set is of people who must low rate this film. What is it they need? A film to watch more than once.
  • Very poor

    By Injnghfghjkkkk
    Very poor film. Stupid story and breathtakingly fake cg like an early 80's attempt at 3D. Avoid.
