I really wanted to like this one because I love Matt Damon, but the fact that his accent kept changing throughout the movie was highly annoying.
From the critics
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Some people might find the monster scenes a bit much
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Nasty, hideous beasts might be too much for youngsters.

William: I've been left for dead twice... it was bad luck.
Ballard: For who ?
William: The people who left me!
Where are the Tao Tei now?
-The mountains, regrouping.
Where do they come from?
-About 20 centuries ago, there was an emperor whose greed brought deep suffering to all of China. The heavens sent the meteor that struck Gouwu Mountain, turning it green and releasing the Tao Tei. From that day on, the Tao Tei rise every 60 years to scourge the north of China. They come to remind us of what happens when greed is unchecked. They eat anything, alive or dead, and take food to their queen. She depends on her soldiers to feed her. Only with the food they provide is she able to multiply. The capital, and its two million
people, is only 800 li away. If the Tao Tei ever had that much nourishment, no corner of the world would be safe.
These men know what they're doing?
-Wrong question. Whether or not the cable is attached, that is the question.
And the answer?
-Xin ren. Xin ren means trust. To have faith. Here, in this army, we fight for more than food or money. We give our lives to something more. Xin ren is our flag. Trust in each other. In all ways, at all times.
-Well, that's all well and good, but I'm not jumping. I'm alive today because I trust no one.
A man must learn to trust before he can be trusted.
-Then you were right. We're not the same.
