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 »
The "drone" Tao Tei's eye placement does not conduce to its position in the horde. As a protector and hunter for the queen, it would need the predator's forward facing eyes, rather than side eye placement, to allow for binocular or stereoscopic vision. This would allow the monster to see and judge depth especially during the great-height wall battles against the Nameless Order. Predators need this depth perception to track and pursue prey. Its current design suggests that IT could be the prey. See more »
You think they see you as some kind of hero? A man of virtue? Maybe you can fool them, but I know what you are. You know what you are. A thief, a liar, and a killer. You can never undo things you have done. And you will never be anything.

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 »
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 »
Critics are becoming increasingly wrong about movies. They seem to think whoever rates it the lowest wins. That is wrong, and shouldn't be listened to.
This is my first review, and I'm writing it because this movie was given an unfair bad rating when it should be rated quite highly.
The plot was great for a "Legend" (fiction) story. It made as much sense as it could and was gripping all the way through. Throughout the entire movie I was making sure I got every single line, showing just how much I didn't want to miss anything. At no point did I slightly phase out, the movie went strong all through out. This movie was neither too short nor too long and there was no part of the story where it was either rushed or stretched out. It was timed perfectly.
Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal and Tian Jing were very engaging protagonists, all with good acting making this fiction story not one of those where it is so obviously not true. The other characters all had good roles as well and were helpful in this story, making all the more better as there were no pointless parts.
The visuals were great along with a good audio background and this made the movie all-round really entertaining, a good watch, along with a want for more. I'd honestly watch this movie again and be equally entertained.
