Goofs

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.

The Universal logo appears quicker than usual, and after appearing it zooms into China, going all the way to a section of the Great Wall and through a crack in the section. During the zoom the Legendary Pictures logo appears (in reverse). See more »

Two mercenaries William and Tovar are looking for a mysterious item known as 'Black Powder'. Unfortunately, they were captured by the army of the Great Wall for trespassing. The weird thing about the Great Wall is that every 60 years, the wall is attacked by some monsters known as Tao Tei. The opening scenes and fight sequences were the best thing about the movie. The story was not very impressive and the only thing that keeps it alive is the action scenes. Like, Jason Bourne 2016 movie this one also has nothing much to offer Matt Damon in the acting department apart from some stunts. The monsters logic of attacking and the cinematography were really good to see. Overall, Yimou manages to deliver a watchable action fantasy movie.
