PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
European mercenaries searching for black powder become embroiled in the defense of the Great Wall of China against a horde of monstrous creatures.
The filmmakers were denied permission to film on the actual Great Wall, so the locations were added digitally.
Commander Lin Mae:
Men like him have many things they can teach us.
Even with a tutor and years of practice it was virtually impossible that Peng Yong would have been able to speak English well enough to communicate as well as shown with William Garin. English is a phonetic language with completely different sentence structures and grammar than tonal Chinese. The film , however, has Peng not only understand spoken English but also idioms and nuances. This would be difficult for many native English speakers and it would nearly impossible for a older learner to do so.
Part of the closing credits are a montage of Chinese watercolor paintings depicting scenes/characters from the film.
