The Good, the Bad and the Huge Wall :

• The movie is set in a different world of fantasy filled with monsters and it works really well with all the Chinese culture and elements, as well as the butt-kicking Asian action.

• The cinematography and visuals are truly breathtaking, and mixing CGI with real-time landscapes around the Great Wall of China is truly an amazing sight to see.

• Of course, this movie has a lot of plot holes and historical inaccuracies, but it's not supposed to be accurate in the first place as it is set in a whole new alternate world.

• Although Matt Damon is the hero of the movie, he is not exactly the main focus of the movie, but he is an important character that drives the story.


• This is Andy Lau's first Hollywood film and the most expensive film ever made.
