Matt Damon plays a greedy foreigner who wants to get black powder from China to bring back to the west and become rich, but ends up learning selflessness and trust and helping the Chinese forces defend the country from monsters called tao tei. The story and acting are average, but I enjoyed the daring female soldiers, and the Chinese general is female, too! (Obviously, this is a fantasy film). It is quite the visual spectacle with the Great Wall as the setting, so you’ll want to watch this movie on a big screen. However, 3D is optional.
