The Great Wall (2017) Movie
Fantastic Movie!!! Great action and adventure. The Tao Tei came to earth eons ago by a green (Green color symbolizes alien) meteor from out space crash lands into earth. They are strong vicious reptilian and beast hybrid species, have an amalgamation of all different types of animals. Distinct features include a big crocodile mouth, lots of teeth, green skin, large hands and raptor claws. It’s fast like a cheetah and extremely strong like a lion. It takes orders from its queen whom it’s soul purpose is to serve, feed and protect. The queens existence fuel the pack. In some ways the queen reflects the great mother energy. This not the first time motion pictures have depicted ancient people as monsters or some sort of mythical creatures…..Reptile symbolically references Kundalini.
Matt Damon’s character William (American accent, main protagonist) and friend Tovar (spanish accent, supporting role, could be a Moorish descendant) manages to kill one Tao Tei. and keeps the hand of the beast he cut of when it fell over a cliff. He gets ambushed by the native troops who bring him to the Renzong Emperor, during the Song Dynasty. Now he is at the Imperial Court where they would like to kill William and Tovar the intruders. They question him, how he this white barbarian who managed to kill a Toa Tei single handedly, after all he looks and smells like a beast himself dirty and stinking for not having bathed for such a long time and looks unkempt and unsophisticated (but obviously judging someone by their looks can be very much deceiving.
It is proven by the strategist that William was telling the truth because the blood of the beast was found on the sword. They decide to kill him and keep the intruders to find the knowledge on how he managed to kill the beast.
Immediately after he gains respect of the court, a troop runs in an interrupts the proceedings warning of an impending attack on the empire by the Tao Tei beasts. They the cinematography begins to show the overwhelming magnificent of the empire as William and Tovar are taken changed up to the top of the Great Wall by the troops where they are able to see everyone get prepared for battle. The troops are organized into different colors and each division has special warfare suits. It has crafted and engineered so many different ways to protect and serve its people. William and Tovar are so impressed. The woman are infront of the army who get the closest to the beast. They are in the most vulnerable and daring position and quickly get eating by the beast (harkons back to the symbology and cultural practice in certain Asian societies where woman children are killed at birth/discarded from society and considered less valuable than a man child. Their carcasses are eaten in mass as delicacies on the underground black market. The man child are more valuable and protected. It has created an imbalance where the male population far out ways the female population; decreasing the ability of the culture to populate. Who started this trend….? ….. Human fetus eating in China…. In some sneaky way white supremacy is the dominant social structure of the world (Ode to Neely Fuller). It would be in their best interest to find a way to destabilize an entire culture by getting another culture to destabilize itself through some outrageous sanctioned belief system crippling its abilility to reproduce a culture that has lasted and developed for thousands years. Who is writing the screenplay and producing this movie. I see no Asian names listed… Thus from what perspective is this story being told). Side bar: Actress Jing Tian’s character has no Asian male or woman love interest. The Honorable Great White Hope character seems to suggest a good male love interest counter part for her to set her affections on. The sentiment seems to be reciprocated from him to her…shown in him wanting to be there for here to support her. Although they are from different world and are truly “different” (This “difference” dialogue is a theme throughout the movie from when they first talk to each other in private to when they depart.) By the way he never commits himself to her or her culture and end up leaving her at the end of the movie as she looks out after him from on top of the Great Wall as he rides away on his horse with his partners. There is a slight premise left that she will for ever long for him as her equal counter part; they are both brave & fierce warriors and Great leaders. the Symbol Great wall of culture, heritage and geography keep them apart. Once all the beast died the empire was never as strong as it once was when it unified to fight the beast.
The strategist figured out that William was able to defeat the Tao Tei with a magnet rock which in affect puts the beast to sleep when the rock comes into close proximity to it. It mutes the signal for the Queen (Great Mother energy) whom is vibrationally or energetically connected to every beast. It causes the beast to be in an isolated sleep state disconnected from the whole. Once strong and ferocious it instantly becomes weak, vulnerable and very easy to kill. The rock symbolically represents melanin. People have a hard time sleeping at night and melanin helps but them to sleep. Melatonin supplement pills are popular sleep aids. Natural herbal Melatonin Dietary Supplements are on the rise. However as Bobby Hemmitt says it use to come out of humans through the extracting of the pineal gland. Made it is still done in the underground black market. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas alludes to eat of the pineal gland for the purposes of getting an extreme high. They go completely insane in inebriation and hallucinations and destroy their interior apartment in a fit of craze. Black bats on the cover on the cover also alludes to melanin because melanin is most active at night like bats are.
The catch 22 is that the suppression act by the world social engineers spares forth more and more of the Great Mother energy. This is no their intent. It is unfortunate product of their suppress tactics.
Fast forward and simplify….
William proves his good nature and honorable character through saving a young native soldier from getting eaten by a Tao Tei. William also proves to be one of the best warriors whom just happened to show up right at the perfect time to help the empire engineer a plan to defeat the beast.
