Trivia

In the first battle against the tao tei, the Spaniard Tovar uses a red cape, much as would a matador in a bullfight in Spain. See more »

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

Commander Lin Mae: I set you free.
William: And here I am.

Crazy Credits

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 »

The Opposite of White-washing
19 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

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?
