European mercenaries searching for black powder become embroiled in the defense of the Great Wall of China against a horde of monstrous creatures.
Matt Damon has said that there were one hundred Mandarin/English translators on the payroll over the course of this production.
The TaoTei will return... when the drums call to battle, the guards leave their posts and take their positions on the Wall... that is our moment.
Only one magnetic stone, which can pacify the Taotie, appeared in the movie. The stone was brought in by William the European mercenary. In reality, Chinese civilization first made compasses from magnetic stones in Han dynasty (< AD100). By the time point of the movie (somewhen between AD960 and AD1127), the compass had been widely used in navigation. It shouldn't be hard to find more magnetic stones inside China.
