The monsters are cheesy CGI and they use the same sound effects to make their native noise as they do in several other movies. It's not all terrible, but it's not Great.

I wasn't expectinguch since it's an action movie on the whole "last samurai" premise; but in China with monsters. Pleasantly surprised. Some of the action is a throwback to martial arts movies of days of old. Story was terribly cliche. Matt Daemon' non-Boston, non-American accent is jarringly bad.

The computer-generated monsters, like the film as a whole, are numbingly repetitive, and devoid of any power to move, scare or stir us.

Viewers are in good hands — if they’re not too demanding — as Zhang Yimou puts the easily distinguishable characters through their paces.

The characters are ciphers, the narrative is dull and even the sights and sounds become numbingly bombastic after a while.
