The Great Wall
On paper, a sci fi, fantasy retelling of the Great Wall of China, should be a B Movie fans dream. Only this film doesn't portray itself as a B Movie, instead it is dead serious. Overly serious fantasy is the go to in film & TV these days with Game of Thrones, but unlike Game of Thrones, this here is wooden, and not at all entertaining. Atleast it is well crafted right? I mean it comes from Yimou Zhang, the director of Hero and Curse of the Golden Flower....nope, it still sucks, this is indeed an awful film across the board. Matt Damon must have really thought he was doing the Chinese justice when he signed on to this, plus the great Willem Dafoe is wasted in this film, and you just don't waste his greatness.
