[Another guest post by Ray Hecht, who reviewed this movie on his website on January 5. The movie has already been released in China where Ray resides but will not be released in the US until February. The following review is abridged.]
The Great Wall was recently released in China with much hype. Directed by the critically acclaimed Zhang Yimou ( Raise the Red Lantern), and starring Matt Damon, it is the first truly American and Chinese coproduction.
Unfortunately, the film has already been poorly received and critically panned in China. However, it can still make for an enjoyable romp.
