“The Great Wall”, A pair of mercenaries are in search of black powder when taken prisoner by Chinese soldiers. After being transferred to the Great Wall, they discover how the world is on the verge of extinction before a threat beyond comprehension. To fight this battle, the Order Without Name will depend on the experience of one of these outsiders.
Ever since I saw the progress, I did not feel convinced to see it. I seemed to look unreasonably at the American market with Matt Damon seeing how China has transpired in its own box office. For a change, I was wrong since The Great Wall follows the structure of The Last Samurai in a much more adventurous and humorous tone.
That said, sentimentality is ruled out by an impressive cinematography that resembles as much as possible one of the wonders of the world.
If I am not mistaken, it is the first time that Zhang Yimou agrees to lead an international acting and technical cast. It deserves credit because the Chinese culture transcends thanks to the outstanding execution of this legend.
"The Great Wall Movie" The tone of war is present alongside the music, costumes and choreography. The writers captured the honor of what it represented to be part of this fleet and somehow managed to keep it as effectively credible considering its fictional plane. Yimou was respectful in his context and kept him earthly.

There is a balance between the action sequences and their dramatic tone. In matters of character development, it is necessarily basic and direct.
It may be your weak point but otherwise, it becomes justifiable enough to refer to it as a success because it culminates impressing you for its great work of editing, sound and special effects.
'The Great Wall' At this point, it is a guarantee to have Matt Damon because his mere presence is enough to give prestige to this ambitious adaptation. In addition their chemistry with Jing Tian is formidable to the point of finding them a stable partner regardless of whether they are from different cultures.
Pedro Pascal compensates the tension with ingenious humor while Willem Dafoe distracts us with solidity. That military conduct developed before, during and after the spectacular battles in themselves contagion of adrenaline. It is amazing to see them interact with mutual collective and in turn differentiate by their personality.
In conclusion, The Great Wall is an innovative story to define a war with its technical and artistic elements of his country. The story will not be emotional but the enthusiasm and discipline of the cast make it an adventure that will not disappoint you for your great contribution in the visual field". .
