Intro

*****

When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I thought it looked pretty awesome some 18 months ago.

The film was hyped a little and trailers continued to appear until the film hit the cinemas around February of this year.

As a regular cinema goer, I started to notice quite critical reviews of the movie and so decided that I will give it a miss and catch it on Amazon movies, especially as the final trailer I saw looked less than appealing.

Well Amazon had a special this week and it cost under £2 to rent, so I thought one night why not.

The movie

************

The movie itself tries to blend an American star with a traditional Chinese type movie, by that I mean fantastic visuals, colours, stunts and imagery that I really am a fan of, with a Hollywood kind of monster movie (I thought Starship Troopers at times), which is an unusual approach to this type of film.

The film begins with our hapless anti-heroes stumbling...

Wasn't sure about this movie because of all the negative reviews, but I am so glad I bought it. It was amazing, lots of mystery surrounding the monster, trying to figure out what it actually is, from the quick glimpses we saw of the monster in the beginning. Most Chinese folklore and legends they sometimes become a bit long-winded and confusing, but in this case it wasn't so and I was intrigued from the moment the movie began. As expected with this type of movie, the movie set was epic with beautiful costumes and amazing weaponry. I enjoyed the movie and so did the rest of my family..

One of the world's best directors along with one of Hollywood's most bankable stars; now, that's got to be worth a look, right?

Absolutely, even though the result is totally bonkers. But, by golly, it's great fun. I suspect there were several times during the filming that Matt Damon must have asked himself: What on earth am I doing here? But in a good way, because in watching the 'Special Features' section - which, annoyingly, will no longer be available after October when Amazon cease their DVD-by-Post service in favour of rental via streaming - he did seem to be having a high old time bouncing around on all those wire rigs; as did everyone else, from the look of it, which made for some spectacular action sequences during the battle scenes.

The wall itself, of course, is immediately familiar but there’s huge enjoyment to be had from watching the imagination of the set designers take flight, and I do mean take flight.

For this isn’t just any wall, it...
