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.

Quotes

William: Look at this army... have you ever seen anything like this ?
Tovar: Incredible.

This movie is a huge fun
14 October 2017 | by amirbh-40192See all my reviews

Surprisingly better than I thought. I do appreciate it when movies use genuine languages and not simply having everybody speak English cause that's dumb. if your plot in China you better speak Chinese !! good work there guys. great effects and soundtrack ! The story itself is legend/fantasy which lets some scenes to be acceptable. Just as a comparison, having "Toreto" jump over a bridge after standing on his car's hood at 100 mph and land on a tank (Fast & Furious) is NOT acceptable, nor logical. A solid 8 there !
