Though there was a lot less warlord and a lot more tenderness, this was a rather fantastic film about Genghis Khan. While beautiful cinematography sweeps across the steppe, incredible horse stunts, gorgeous production design, and great performances sell the world. It focused heavily on his personal life rather than his unifying the warring clans, which was surprisingly calm, and even meditative, at times.
A fun film about Gengish Kahn with rather decent filmography. The storyline departs from the historical records towards the end, but the movie definitely makes you want to go to Mongolia and ride a horse in the steppe. And maybe find a beautiful wife like Borte.
This film was a revolution. It truly showed me how amazing foreign films can be, and I learned so much about one man's quest. What was unique was the fact that it was showing the early years of Genghis's life, and it shows you how he rose to lead the largest empire in the world to date. And even though a warlord, you can see he had so much appreciation for life and his family.
Another historically inaccurate and totally lame foreign production. Also the dialect used in this film is not pure Mongolian (more like Chinese influenced Mongolian dialects from the Inner Mongolian province in China). Only Mongolian filmmaker should make a film about the Greatest Khan who ever lived.
