The Great Wall movie quotes help tell the story in the film about one mercenary who joins an army to battle monsters on the other side of the Great Wall in China. Zhang Yimou directed the action-adventure film using a screenplay written by Carlo Bernard, Doug Miro, and Tony Gilroy. The Great Wall opened theatrically in the United States on February 17, 2017.
In The Great Wall, mercenaries William Garin (Matt Damon) and Pero Tovar (Pedro Pascal), along with their group of 20 men, are in search of gunpowder when they're attached by bandits. Only William and Pero survive but soon meet an enemy of another kind, a monster. William slays the monster, capture its arm and head off on their journeys.
But soon William and Pero are captured by Chinese soldiers who question why they are in the area. William shows the soldiers, part of the Nameless Order, the monster's hand and inquires about the beast. As William soon learns, the Great Wall is the only thing keeping those monsters away from humanity. This leads William, a life-long soldier, to join the Chinese to battle against the monsters.
Costarring Willem Dafoe, Andy Lau, Jing Tian, Lu Han and Zhang Hanyu, The Great Wall opened alongside other early 2017 releases including Moonlight, John Wick: Chapter 2, Fifty Shades Darker, nd The LEGO Batman Movie.
William Garin: Stay and fight.
Pero Tovar: You think they see you as some kind of hero?
When Pero announces that he doesn't want to stay and fight the monsters, William tries to convince him otherwise. While William thinks he can make a difference in the war, Pero isn't as optimistic and expresses as much in these The Great Wall movie quotes.
Commander Lin Mae: Why are you here?
William Garin: We came to trade.
Commander Lin Mae: You lie! You are thieves!
After William and Pero are captured by the Nameless Order, they are questioned about why they are in the area. Though the mercenaries answer the questions truthfully, Commander Lin Mae feels they are lying about their intentions.
Captain: The great wall is the only barrier keeping the world safe.
William Garin: What is it they want?
Captain: To feed
William asks the Captain just exactly what is on the other side of the Great Wall and what the monsters there are after. As the Captain explains in these The Great Wall movie quotes, they're hungry.
William Garin: I was born into battle. I fought for greed and gods. This is the first war that I've seen worth fighting for.
William has been fighting all his life for various reasons. But it wasn't until now that he found something he could support, a battle worth fighting.
