Overview

Based on the controversial writings of Russian historian Lev Gumilyov, director Sergei Bodrov's look at the early years in the life of the Mongol conqueror stars Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano as Temudgin as he was then known, Honglei Sun as Mongol chieftain Jamukha, who was both Temudgin's close friend and mortal enemy, and newcomer Khulan Chuluun as his wife, Borte. Born in the year 1162, Temudgen's childhood was marred by tragedy and peril. But a great battle would seal Temudgen's fate forever, and though history often paints him as a brute, the truth is much more complex. Few historians make mention of the role Temudgen's wife, Borte, played in advising her husband and elevating him to greatness. With Borte by his side, Temudgen would rise to become a fearless visionary whose legacy would still prove potent enough to stir controversy centuries after his death.

    Surprisingly Good

    I bought this movie simply because it received good critic reviews, and was well priced. I'm glad that I did. While I find that some movies just don't hold my attention; Mongol yolked me in the first ten minutes, and really sustained a steady pace and quality throughout. The main character (Temudjin) stays true to character and never alters his ethics, or changes his approach to situations. These factors make him easy to believe as well as root for. Buy this film. THE LANDSCAPES ARE AMAZING.

    Visually Stunning

    This is a journey of great pain as a leader emerges to unify the mongol people as its Khan. Visually stunning. Epic story. Epic sets, battles, and wonderful characters. It is one of my favorite films of all time, not only because of its historical basis, but because of the superb character development and it is shot in such beautiful places.
