The Great Wall ★★★½

I watched this the same night as Alien: Covenant. This movie has better alien monsters, but I felt sorry for Andy Lau being tasked with holding them off by pointing a rock at them. Fans of spectacle and technique will find much to enjoy here, as will fans of the silly hero story with veiled commentary we've seen countless times. There's silly banter worthy of a grin sprinkled throughout. All I needed was the monsters. This is a very well done "who cares" movie. Don't be afraid.
