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.
Look at this army... have you ever seen anything like this ?
The "drone" Tao Tei's eye placement does not conduce to its position in the horde. As a protector and hunter for the queen, it would need the predator's forward facing eyes, rather than side eye placement, to allow for binocular or stereoscopic vision. This would allow the monster to see and judge depth especially during the great-height wall battles against the Nameless Order. Predators need this depth perception to track and pursue prey. Its current design suggests that IT could be the prey.
Part of the closing credits are a montage of Chinese watercolor paintings depicting scenes/characters from the film.
