Matt Damon Slams Trump on Mexico: 'I'm Not a Believer in Walls'

18 February 2017

"It felt strangely like Old Hollywood in a way, but having this experience on the other side of the world".

The "Martian" star also believes that the wall is never is going to happen as he said, "That's just not going to happen but, that's where we are and we'll see how it all plays out".

The Great Wall, which is a co-production between the US and China, opened in China in December, and while not the box office record breaker it was created to be, it was still a hit. They're the Halley's Comet of demons.

As Matt Damon's controversial big-budget movie "The Great Wall" hits North American theaters on February 17, the Twitterverse has come prepared with the hilariously sarcastic hashtag #thankyoumattdamon. William decides he needs to help these people because he has a magnet in his bag and magnets make the monsters sleepy, and while they're sleepy, you can blow the monsters up by attaching M80s and bottle rockets to their tails. It, after all, originated as a thinly sketched conceit of Thomas Tull, the former chief executive of the now Chinese-owned Legendary Entertainment.

The casting controversy comes from Matt Damon, who stars as William, an 11th-century mercenary from somewhere in Britain. They're led by Lin Mae (Jing Tian), who has some gentle hints of romance with Damon's character-but like everything else in this movie, it's only touched on for an instant before the next face-off with beasts.

When William and Tovar are taken captive by a huge army on the Great Wall, he gets his answer. Their search for gunpowder eventually pits them-and a Chinese military order-against extraterrestrial monsters.

Authorities say a catapult used to launch drugs from Mexico into the United States has been found and dismantled. Border Patrol agents seized the marijuana and called Mexican authorities to investigate the contraption.

The teaming army along the exaggerated, heightened wall is a vibrant swirl of color and choreography. Direction by Yimou Zhang who brought House of the Flying Daggers to the screen uses numerous ploys that made that film exciting. Once upon a time, Zhang was the director of such humanist near-masterpieces as "Raise the Red Lantern" and "The Story of Qiu Ju", but in the past decades, his work has become, for the most part, increasingly shrill and emptily spectacular. Though even greater in scope than those previous triumphs, "The Great Wall" possesses little of those films' dizzying splendor, and every frame seems smudged with popcorn butter.

Yimou's images are nearly entirely computer generated in "The Great Wall".

The premiere took place just one day after Valentine's Day.

Few characters emerge out of the blur. It's as if you were on the wall taking a beating with streaking spears and arrows. Garin watches her in awe, and quite rightly realizes he's out of his depth.

"The Great Wall", in the end, bridges worlds only by that sad commonality we all share: the disappointment of a bloated, half-baked blockbuster.
