    Sergei Bodrov's Mongolian-language Academy Award-nominated historical epic, Mongol, starring Asano "Hogan the Grim" Tadanobu as Temudgin, the man who would become Genghis Khan. The film takes us from his childhood to his unification of the Mongol hordes never shying away from the incredibly harsh life these people led. 80% of the enjoyment is seeing a culture we know next to nothing about, somewhere between Native American and Klingon, and the impressive landscape that was a part of their every day lives. It's a hero's journey, a love story, and a feud between brothers as well, well played and executed. Hopefully, you'll forgive how romanticized the story is (there's even a hint of divine intervention in there), but the filmmakers were no doubt working more from legend than history. 8 years 11 months ago

    Brilliant historic epic although I agree with Dr. McNinja. It tries too hard to make us empathize with Genghis Khan. I mean this is a man that united all Mongolian tribes and conquered half the world, he does not need me compassion, he has my respect. 10 years 11 months ago

    Beautifully done. Intended to be the first of three. I'm sad the other parts won't be realised. 12 years 5 months ago
