As they come this looks like a decent fantasy action film.
Big set pieces, explosions, great big nasty beast trying to destroy all that is good. What’s not to like?
But then there is the fuss that has been made about Matt Damon starring in a film about The Great Wall of China and why it couldn’t be someone more authentic to the time. Whilst this does make sense and I can see why there has been some outcry, unfortunately this seems to be the way of the industry seems to be going. Money first, all artistic thoughts come a distant second. Risk? We don’t do risk, let’s use our best earning actor and parachute them into this otherwise authentic film, it doesn’t matter if it makes sense or not.
