Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.
When a mercenary warrior (Matt Damon) is imprisoned within the Great Wall, he discovers the mystery behind one of the greatest wonders of the world. As wave after wave of marauding beasts besiege the massive structure, his quest for fortune turns into a journey toward heroism as he joins a huge army of elite warriors to confront the unimaginable and seemingly unstoppable force.

Even with a tutor and years of practice it was virtually impossible that Peng Yong would have been able to speak English well enough to communicate as well as shown with William Garin. English is a phonetic language with completely different sentence structures and grammar than tonal Chinese.
The film , however, has Peng not only understand spoken English but also idioms and nuances. This would be difficult for many native English speakers and it would nearly impossible for a older learner to do so. See more »

The Universal logo appears quicker than usual, and after appearing it zooms into China, going all the way to a section of the Great Wall and through a crack in the section. During the zoom the Legendary Pictures logo appears (in reverse). See more »
I'm Chinese and I don't think to have Matt Damon as the main character is a white-washing or anything racist. Some foreigners are needed to show foreigner's perspective of the magnificent China : the Great Wall, the weapons, the army, etc.
While the CGI, costume designers and production staffs are whites, 90%+ of the casts are Chinese. Even the directors are Chinese. The director Zhang Yimou pick Damon by his artistic choice. This is not a Chinese film, nor a Western film, this is definitely a collaboration, which prove that if we human, from East, and West, if we trust each other and to work together, we could achieved great things. If even Chinese are not offended, why white people called this film racist?
