Goofs

The film shows that the army is able to build a large scale laser cannon. Yet, they are not able to provide the infantry with a handheld laser weapon or a tank with a laser cannon (since the conventional weapons they are using are basically useless against the aliens). See more »

Rubbish
16 August 2019 | by malavia-94356See all my reviews

The plot mixes love story, war and science fiction, but none of then has been clearly expressed.

Also the voice problem, the voice is dubbed by actors themselves, however, it cannot match their mouthes in screen!

An interesting comment in Chinese movie web 'Dou Ban' reads below:

"Wandering Earth had opened the gate of Chinese science fiction movie. Now Shanghai Fortress has closed it again"

While the box office has been a disater for this rubbish, I'm still having good hopes on Chinese SF movies' future.
