An Exotic Action Saga with Colorful traditional Chinese along with mesmerizing visuals & breathtaking cinematography.. :)
This is an excellent movie with great visuals, panoramic and action scenes, costumes, sets, wonderful acting and a crisp script..The movie tells a legend. And it tells it so beautifully.
Matt Damon is just outstanding as the #Mercenary.. He always gives a fine performance as the hero.The plot is intense without any relax from begin to end, caught my attention all through the whole movie
The scenes and the pictures are magnificent and beautiful..I loved the design of the monsters, they were genuinely frightening, and when they first arrive in the film.It has great star cast, tight direction and very, very cool looking action sequences
Zhang Yimou creates exquisite visuals of the landscapes and vertiginous views from the walls heights
.Overall it's a treat for the eyes to watch this beautifully shot, well-acted action blockbuster...:)
