After several weeks of anticipated action and mystery, “The Great Wall” misses the mark, by a lot. The trailer hyped this movie up way too much, making the delivery crash hard in the end. With a stale plot and rigid acting, the movie just comes off as boring. “The Great Wall” follows the adventure...
