However, you only need eyeballs to appreciate all the insanely lavish costumes, weapons, and battle scenes.
Director Zhang Yimou’s (Hero) latest movie is a grand spectacle about giant monsters attacking the Great Wall of China. You know, like they do. It’s also about the mercenaries played by Matt Damon and Pedro Pascal staying to fight for humanity alongside the Chinese armies that have trained for this their entire lives.
