The Great Wall is best put as a Chinese film with a Hollywood budget… made by Hollywood. It basically is a shell of a film that I’m sure if it actually was made with a lower budget and made solely by the directors ideas, it could actually be great. But this is a classic case where the studios butted in and wanted to basically slap on a directors name to the final project.
Matt Damon is dull in this film which is sad to see, and honestly outside of the action scenes there’s really not much more to it. I walked in really wanting to like this film but I honestly just felt bad for everyone involved. There really wasn’t much heart or spirit in this movie which desperately needed it. 2/5
