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 colored mountains in the film are real. They can be seen in Zhangye in the northwest region of China. See more »
Only one magnetic stone, which can pacify the Taotie, appeared in the movie. The stone was brought in by William the European mercenary. In reality, Chinese civilization first made compasses from magnetic stones in Han dynasty (< AD100). By the time point of the movie (somewhen between AD960 and AD1127), the compass had been widely used in navigation. It shouldn't be hard to find more magnetic stones inside China. See more »
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 !
