Noah and Daren are long-time fans of Zhang Yimou, and despite early reports they had high hopes for “The Great Wall”. Alas, they were disappointed, and go into what they saw as the movie’s shortcomings.
The Great Wall tells the story of an elite force making a valiant stand for humanity on the world’s most iconic structure. The first English-language production for Yimou is the largest film ever shot entirely in China. The Great Wall also stars Jing Tian, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe and Andy Lau.
