The Great Wall

Action Adventure


 

The Great Wall of China is attacked by a scourge of monsters and battle ensues.

"The Great Wall" is a hot mess. The story seems to have been lost in translation and our leading man can't decide where he is from, his accent slips so frequently. Headache-inducing action sequences, an unnecessary romance storyline, and a complete disregard for historical accuracy are additional low lights at play. The film's only redeeming quality is the incredible costumes, but they're ultimately wasted on this train wreck of a picture overflowing with cheesy dialogue. The Great Disappointment.
