What do you think? Is being pulled from all Chinese cinemas an appropriate punishment? Honestly, I’m more offended by the lame-ass dialogue, but I am not Chinese.

Monster Hunter stars Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa, Meagan Good (BRICK, D.E.B.S.), Tip ‘T.I.’ Harris (ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, AMERICAN GANGSTER), Diego Boneta (TERMINATOR: DARK FATE, ROCK OF AGES), Josh Helman (MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE), Jin Au-Yeung (2 FST 2 FURIOUS, THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS), and Ron Perlman (HELLBOY, SONS OF ANARCHY). It hits theaters on Christmas Day, December 25th.
