Thanks to the directorial hand of Yimou Zhang (House of Flying Daggers), everyone flies about or jumps into oblivion and survives, and with a script from Max Brooks and Tony Gilroy (the latter responsible for The Bourne Legacy), the Bourne who escaped that one appears here – Matt Damon, along with Willem Dafoe, Pedro Pascal, Andy Lau and the film’s token hottie, Jing Tian.
I just hope that, with Matt Damon’s presence, this doesn’t turn out awful like the other recent “Hollywood A-lister in Asian movie” that was Keanu Reeves in 47 Ronin.
The Great Wall (of China) is released in the UK on February 24th, 2017, so is clearly aiming for the Oscars/BAFTA market.
