Great Wall (2016)

The “Great Wall” is easily the least interesting and involving blockbuster of the respective careers of both Zhang Yimou and Matt Damon, but is so visually impressive. Not even the good director Zhang Yimou brought in for his prestige value, can save this very expensive
movie from dissaster, even if it’s a treat for the eyes. With futuristic and historic elements and of course with a Chinese touch and the Yimou’s famous choreographic scenes, and while big and cross-cultural, the uninteresting script makes this film boring. The movie opens like a spaghetti western, contains fight scenes in those that Chinese are great and all this, unfortunately, doesn’t make “Great Wall” so great after all.
