A "Strong Outside" Movie

The main plot of the film revolves around the story of the army stationed on the Great Wall defending against the gluttonous monsters. The whole film shows a strong Chinese style from the historical background, character settings and pictures. The majestic picture display makes me like military war movies very much, but because this film is global and the protagonist is dumb, so I added a lot of dumb perspectives and the plot between him and Jing Tian. Frequent switching between battles makes the entire army and monster confrontation scene although grand, but there is never a continuous exciting and hearty scene;

In the film, the reason why the characters in the film are determined to join the Imperial Army and fight together is not fully demonstrated. It can be felt that there are reasons for belief, a sense of belonging, and emotional reasons with Jing Tian, ​​but they are not focused on the description. There is no description of inner struggle in the play, and the turning point is less convincing;

The acting skills of most of the actors in the film are also criticized. First of all, the character of the heroine Jing Tian is made to play, without the spirit of a female general who will fight decisively in the battlefield. In addition, this film has invited many creamy students to participate in the film, and there is nothing in the gesture. The feeling of a soldier, Lu Han's role is a failure, and the temperament of an army almost turned into a circus;

The plot depth of the whole film is weak, the plot conflicts are not enough, and the portrayal of the inner transformation of the characters of the male and female protagonists is also weak. The scenes, weapons, and props that cost a lot of money only played a cutscene in the war, and finally the way of personal heroism is very The battle is over soon. Director Zhang Yimou made a lot of thunder on the screen, and the raindrops on the depth of the plot were very small;
