Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.
When a mercenary warrior (Matt Damon) is imprisoned within the Great Wall, he discovers the mystery behind one of the greatest wonders of the world. As wave after wave of marauding beasts besiege the massive structure, his quest for fortune turns into a journey toward heroism as he joins a huge army of elite warriors to confront the unimaginable and seemingly unstoppable force.Written by
The poster says the Great Wall took 1,700 years to build. This is technically accurate, since it was actually constructed as a series of several walls built separately over that time by various ruling dynasties. Each new wall section built by any single ruler would take approximately ten to 20 years to construct. See more »
It is shown that all the Tao Tei froze when the queen died. But if they were all connected to her for the whole time she would not have to send orders to them explicitly. The queen is depicted more like a general sending orders to her army (and then the army obeys - seemingly independent from her) than a brain to an organism like it would be concluded from their freezing when she died.

I fought for Harold against the Danes. I saved a Duke's life. I fought for him until he died. Fought for Spain against the Franks. Fought for the Franks against the Boulogne. I fought for the Pope. Many flags.

This film will be released in the Mandarin language separately in English-speaking countries --- that is, at least Australia. Both English and Mandarin versions have been classified. See more »
I'm Chinese and I don't think to have Matt Damon as the main character is a white-washing or anything racist. Some foreigners are needed to show foreigner's perspective of the magnificent China : the Great Wall, the weapons, the army, etc.
While the CGI, costume designers and production staffs are whites, 90%+ of the casts are Chinese. Even the directors are Chinese. The director Zhang Yimou pick Damon by his artistic choice. This is not a Chinese film, nor a Western film, this is definitely a collaboration, which prove that if we human, from East, and West, if we trust each other and to work together, we could achieved great things. If even Chinese are not offended, why white people called this film racist?
