The Great Wall. The most expensive film ever made in China. A Hollywood and Chinese co-production that stars A-list actor Matt Damon and is directed by hero director Zhang Yimou.

Be excited!

It also stars former member of EXO, Luhan. He plays Peng Yong, a brave soldier that battles it out with Matt Damon to protect The Great Wall from an unknown scary looking force. Matt Damon said in a recent interview that he was overwhelmed by Luhan’s popularity when he arrived on set - seeing 400 flower arrangements arriving in their hotel to wish Luhan well. #goals

In the film Luhan slices and dices them bad guys with ninja moves and CGI sword play.

The movie as a whole is visually spectacular and super fun. No real plot twist-or-turns but who cares Luhan's in the movie.

7/10
