  • Really Good Negatives Are Weird

    Actually, a far fetched and enjoyable film with great cast and amazing effects. A good watch!

    This Film puts the 'Panda' into 'Pandering' to the Chinese Market! It's 'Meandering' with no 'Mandarin'... Matt Damon should have apologised... 'Me so solly'...
  • Great!!

    Just what I hoped it would be watching the trailer - better even. A cut above most of the blockbusters that are released. Well worth a rental. I will definitely watch it again. (It does have an uninspiring start but is solid).
  • Definitely

    A pile of pants. (Tho' nice double-act chemistry between Oberyn Martell and Jason Bourne.)
  • Great movie of China

    This did not deserve the bad praise. Sure the monsters weren't great but Matt Damon was great and the battles were epic
  • PS4 Graphics are better

    Terrible film, cliche plot and appalling cgi. The characters, as already mentioned, are bland and you cannot build rapport or empathy with any of them. Plot line is weak and story is predictable. Expected more from a Matt Damon film but I guess tax bills have to be paid. Rented it for 4.49 and even then I felt robbed. Avoid
  • Don't waste your time or money

    The movie was boring and obviously trying to feature the Great Wall but it was nowhere near the authentic look of it. Absolutely awful and it became a joke as the director was trying to include these actors in the movie because of the political reasons.
  • Thoroughly enjoyable

    I don't know what inspired some of the poor reviews for this film. I'm difficult to please in terms of entertainment but this film ticked all the boxes for me: Action, some humour and great special effects without overdoing them.

    Not good but not bad
  • 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 .
