Synopsis
In this action-fantasy epic set in 11th century China, two mercenaries from the West (Matt Damon and Pedro Pascal) are captured by a military organization that are headquartered in a fortress on the Great Wall. In time, the duo get caught up in a battle between the Chinese warriors and a supernatural menace that the Great Wall was built to repel. Jing Tian, Andy Lau, Zhang Hanyu, Willem Dafoe, and Eddie Peng co-star. Directed by Zhang Yimou (HERO, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS), this collaboration with Hollywood is the most expensive Chinese film to date.

"[I]t is consistently engaging as an almost abstract exercise in visual sumptuousness. Zhang spends almost as much time on the Nameless Order’s elaborate preparations for battle as he does on the battles themselves, and stages them with his usual flair for synchronized movements and patterns."
