Highly Suspect Reviews: The Great Wall

Matt Damon comes to China as the great white hero to save all the hapless Chinese folk…well, not so much. More like this: Damon (and The Red Viper from Game of Thrones) are looking for the mythical ‘black powder’ (IE: gunpowder) in China, and get captured by the elite Chinese guard at the Great Wall at exactly the worst possible time…when legions of freaky monsters are preparing to attack. Sure, Damon and Pedro Pascal are badass, but so is everybody with all their jumping and stabbing and flipping and cool Great Wall death machines…so yeah, this is a lot better than you might have expected/heard/been dubiously misled. Did you really expect a film by the legendary director Zhang Yimou was going to be flat-out terrible? Check out our review from Chris, Richard, Beau, and Kyle.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
