The Great Wall

I went and saw the film “The Great Wall” starring Matt Damon, last night fully expecting to see Matt Damon be the Savior of this ancient of the Chinese, which had received a lot of criticism in the build up to it’s release. It was billed by many as culturally insensitive to have a white guy save the Chinese, and to that I would agree, especially when historically it didn’t occur that way at all. However, the movie never shows Damon’s character outclassing the Chinese warriors and instead at some points is inferior to them. This isn’t another attempt to show white dominance, just a way to have familiar face in a Chinese “cultural” movie, people need to see it before jumping to conclusions.screen-shot-2016-07-28-at-10-14-08-am
