‘The Great Wall’ Pretties Up The Global Film Industry’s Hatred Of The West

Matt Damon – word has it he’s not really Chinese

Matt Damon’s new film about The Great Wall and zombie-dragons is the perfect movie. And by “perfect,” I mean one that will make lots of money.

Once upon a time, a group of people gathered for the purpose of making the perfect movie. And by “perfect,” they meant one that would make them lots of money. They made an action movie, because those make the most money. They decided to pit the heroes against monsters so as not to offend anyone. They made it PG-13 to maximize profits. It also needed an A-list actor because movies with big names make lots of money. And finally, they set the movie in China because China is the second largest film market in the world.

    That’s good grouping in his back.

    Can’t wait to see the top Hollywood actors star in the next Chinese financed movie, that portrays the brave Chinese communist army defeating the American army in Korea.

    • Watchman

      Maybe they can get Chinese financing for Iranian directed films:

      I’m sure these types of movies would be a hit in the USA, all they need to do is to call the enemy US forces “Rebel Confederate Troops” in English, and “US government troops” in every other language.

    • And then the Chinese live with their Korean brethren in peace and harmony.

      That film would never go down well in South Korea.

  • In Hollywood its Dollar-huAkbar all day long.

    • They are always twisting themselves and reality to incorporate the formula with their idiotic progressive “narrative”. The Genesis intro to the Noah story is a great example. Its not The Bible and its not true in any way which makes it a great blueprint of the environmental movements concept of humanity.

      Kingdom of Heaven was one of the worst movies I have ever seen with regard to historical inaccuracy.

  • Dana Garcia

    And Hollyweird wonders why its post-American movies aren’t selling to the locals any more.

  • eMan14

    Si I guess Matt Damon Is ok with a wall, as long as he can profit from it?

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      I wonder if he found any weapons of mass destruction in that movie.

      • canminuteman

        They did, Matt Damon’s character was a European mercenary who was going to China to steal the formula for the new fangled “black powder”.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          I thought Francis Bacon invented gun powder.

  • canminuteman

    I went to see that this past weekend with my two tween aged sons. We needed to get out of the house and there was no other movie that looked even remotely interesting that we could all go to. It wasn’t overtly pro Chinese or anti west, it was just really awful. The kids enjoyed it bit that’s because there was lots of action and special effects.

    • Watchman

      Any useful cultural lessons? Does the movie show if building a wall and having dedicated ICE employees defend this border works against illegals attempting to flood a country and steal from or kill its inhabitants?

      • canminuteman

        No, the bad buys were dinosaurs(!!) and they managed to get over the wall and take over the Imperial Capital, but the heroes managed to kill the leader and then the rest went home.

        • Watchman

          So, illegal immigrants who self-deported after their welfare-payment organiser was eliminated? Even if they looked like dinosaurs. Still a lesson for us all, build a border wall, employ people to defend it, but also have other measures to deport those who will make it past the outer defences.

          PS. You probably needed a ‘Spoiler’ tag on your comment

      Just really awful is a summary of his career.

  • tom_billesley

    At least he’s not in yellow face. Warner Oland (Charlie Chan) got away with it, but those were different times.

  • China has been doing to Hollywood what it has done to the open market: ripping everybody off.

  • Clausewitz

    The only movie I actually enjoyed last year had nothing to do with Hollywood nor their asinine actors. That was Sing Street. Made in Ireland, great story, made you feel great at the end of it.
