Who write such a horrible script?
12 September 2019 | by stanleytruongSee all my reviews

I want to like this movie but don't waste your time. Wolf Warrior 2 and the Great Wall got a 7/10 from me. Wandering Earth doesn't make a lot of sense but there was at least some good story lines, characters and decent cinematic. That got an 8. Operation Red Sea got a 4 and I thought that was pretty bad.

Shanghai Fortress is a whole other level of face palming, oh my god, what am I watching kinda bad. The premise of the story was already kinda contrive but they don't spend any time explaining what the hell is going on. No setup, no background, no nothing. Then there was whole love story and team building aspect that was just thrown in there to tug at heart strings. Ughhh. It's like a 14 year old wrote the script but any other 14 year old would have done a better job. Yes, it's that bad. They should have saved some money from all that CGI and hire a better team of script writers.
