The Great Wall (2017)
hello everybody. Bonafide Chinese person, here, raised in a Chinese household with Chinese parents born on the mainland, to talk about This Movie
First things first, GO FUCKING SEE IT. This movie is a work of art and you’ll encourage more diversity in Hollywood by supporting a Chinese director and production team. SHOW people that we want diversity by making this movie a hit.
Now I’m going to tell you why you’re going to go see it, and hopefully I won’t get arrested. I don’t remember any of the names except that Matt Damon was Williams something or other. They aren’t really important.
- I’ll put your first worries at ease. Matt Damon does not save the day. The badass lady in the blue armor does. But Matt Damon does help in a major way. He is the main character, after all.
- There are a total of 10 white people in the movie. Only 3 play a substantial part, and only 2 survive.
- The movie states right at the beginning that it’s based off a legend. Stop being snarky about the wall keeping out the Mongols.
- No romance.
- Speaking of the lady in the blue, she’s commander of a squad of leaping warrior women. Holy fucking shit, am I right?
I am in no way a film critic, so I can’t comment on the movie’s general quality. But please please go see it. I can answer any questions in private you might have, just send me an ask. Also, do everybody a favor and hit reblog for me.
