Great Wall has great special effects but, much like World of Warcraft, that's about all it has going for it. Matt Damon does his best, but never rises above mediocre, and while I appreciate the whole U.S. / China joint venture, there isn't enough spark between him and Tian Jing that leads to much. Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe and the great Andy Lau make for compelling supporting characters, but are overshadowed by the CGI-heavy monster battles (like if LOTR met World War Z). Lots of eye candy but, sadly, not much more.

"The Great Wall" is visually pleasing to the eye, but everything else, not so much. It's a dumb blockbuster that misses the potential of being something unique. Hollywood super star Matt Damon fighting monsters on the Great Wall of China? Sounds interesting coming from Yimou Zhang, right? Well, somehow they missed the mark. That's the selling point the film is riding on Matt Damon as the star, but even Damon himself couldn't make this watchable. With the terrible accent, poorly written dialogue, and wooden character. Not just from Damon but everyone else in the movie was pretty bland. I'm quite disappointed with this.
