"The Great Wall" makes "The Promise" instantly cute

There are spoilers in this article.
Let’s talk about the actors first. “The Great Wall” has hired a bunch of big names. Except for foreigners, among Chinese actors, only Jing Tian has the full name “Lin Mei”, and many other male stars play roles even with their full names. no. With so many old and scarred generals on the side, the boss actually chose the youngest Jing Tian as his successor, causing the audience in the entire theater to think that the other generals would definitely rebel, and everyone thought that it would soon develop into a palace fight. Power play. As a result, these generals are all obedient, which is completely unreasonable. In order to highlight Jing Tian's kung fu, Peng Yuyan, Lin Gengxin and other male stars did not play at all. Only Jing Tian flew and fought there. The stiff movements could only be licked by Li Bingbing in "King of Kung Fu" , If it is Zhang Ziyi, Li Bingbing and the like, the effect should be much better. Chinese male stars, apart from Andy Lau and Lu Han, basically have only five lines or less, so they can be completely ignored. Andy Lau didn't know why he didn't have any expression at all. He didn't seem to like his character. The last expression he raised his eyes when he was dying was still very indifferent. Luhan is the one with the most lines and the most abundant performances. He played the role of weakness, shyness, and the little eyes that were dying at the end were full, timid but a little firm, and the relationship between Matt Damon and him. The interaction is far more natural than the interaction with Jing Tian, ​​and the transition from enemy to friend to entrusting life and death is quite natural, so I personally feel that Lu Han is the heroine of this film. Matt Damon is also completely absent in this film. There are at least more than one person with a surname and a surname in "The Promise". Although the plot is lacking, the actors themselves are still very hardworking, and the amount of lines of several characters can still allow them to give full play.
Besides the plot, what does it mean to use a bunch of women to fight monsters? The female generals of the Yang family also led men soldiers, and would not use women to form an army to fight. Bungee jumping to the gluttonous gluttony feels like opening the car door yourself at a safari park to feed the tigers. This way of fighting makes no sense. It's ridiculous to use a nunchaku to beat the war drums. You have to fight the bayonet. The drums are not too slow. The dragon boat racing drums on the Dragon Boat Festival are more powerful than the war drums in the film. The interaction between Jing Tian and Matt Damon is Jing Tian preaching to him for a long time. Is the trust expressed by mouth? Use a loudspeaker to listen to the sound of the beasts in the air. The Great Wall is so high, and the gluttons can't fly. Can you hear it? The herd can only run on the ground, so the detection method should naturally be to put the ear on the ground and listen to the sound of the herd running. No wonder, gluttonous climbed to the city wall, still did not hear, was caught off guard. If you know how to lean down and listen, you can hear gluttons digging tunnels, a bunch of idiots. Taotie is also, since it follows the rotten setting that the boss dies, and other useless settings, please do like other people's movies, hide the boss in the old nest, which ant colony will carry the queen out and put it on the battlefield during the battle Yes, all these movies are just outside a bunch of righteous people and endless soldiers fighting, two or three protagonists rushed into the nest to fight the boss, so the two lines are richer in plot. But "The Great Wall" brought the gluttonous boss to the battlefield, so there was only one line. "Promise" has more than one story line.
Finally, when it comes to special effects, "The Great Wall" is most praised for its special effects. What I just want to say is that the migration of wildebeests in the African savannah is more powerful than that of gluttonous ones. If you just want to watch the herds run, documentaries like the Serengeti savannah can meet your requirements. The running scene in "The Promise" is not much worse than that in "The Great Wall".
The gluttonous Matt Damon in "The Great Wall" really doesn't feel like a hero at all, but his partner seems to be more down-to-earth, and the interaction between Matt Damon and him seems more natural. The whole film gave Jing Tian countless close-ups of her face, just to show the audience the 360-degree delicate makeup without pores, hair, and cracks. It's really Sima Zhao's heart, and everyone knows it.
I once thought it was the worst domestic film I've ever seen, "The Promise", but finally waited for "The Great Wall", and the salted fish turned around
