This week on At Least You Tried we continue our month of the worst of 2017 with “The Great Wall“, proof that even when you have a giant beautiful real life structure to use people will still flock to CG graphics.
The movie follows William (played by Matt Damon) who is a mercenary that helps out the Chinese army protect the great wall again werewolf/ lizard creatures called the Tao Tei that are mercilessly attacking it. However, despite the army appearing to be highly capable warriors….. dear god are they dumb.
Whether it’s loosing 9/10 of their forces in hot air balloon accidents or bungee jumping into groups of hungry monsters, this army makes some really dumb mistakes.
While the movie isn’t the most plot driven movie we’ve watched, it surprisingly was a pretty fun film to watch even if most of that enjoyment was just us mocking the film. The action scenes are well choreographed and according to Alex the nunchuck drumming was “Lit”. This is actually one of the few movies we’ve watched that (If you’re in the right mindset) I suggest you check out.
