Synopsis

Set during the medieval Song dynasty, a mercenary soldier named William arrives in China in search of black powder (otherwise known as gunpowder). However he and his colleagues are soon caught up in an epic battle between the forces behind the recently completed Great Wall and an army of deadly creatures known as the Taotie, who arrive every 60 years in order to cause destruction. As the fighting increases, William and his new comrades realise they will have to study these monstrous beasts as well as battle them, if they are ever to be defeated. Directed by one of Asian cinema’s most distinctive auteurs, this film is the biggest-ever co-production of the increasingly important cinematic alliance of China and Hollywood.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
