The story recounts the early life of Genghis Khan who was a slave before going on to conquer half the world in 1206. As a stand alone film, it is technically brilliant and wonderfully acted. 91.

With Tadanobu Asano, Amadu Mamadakov, Khulan Chuluun, Honglei Sun. I also thought the costumes and sets were wonderful and gave a feeling of accuracy to me that added to the entire movie experience. Sure, it's an extremely streamlined version of what happened (no Toghrul/Wang Khan is a huge omission, for example, and the weird Tangut interlude never happened), but it also really gets the feel and atmosphere of the thing correct, and liberally uses actual anecdotes found in the Secret History. Unfortunately, the film quickly gets repetitive.
The director of the film was Sergei Bodrov and was assisted by Arif Aliev and Bodrov who took part as the screen play writers. Not accurate at all.

However, I did feel as though the direction could have been a bit more inspired. Sergei Bodrov's "Mongol" is a ferocious film, blood-soaked, pausing occasionally for passionate romance and more frequently for torture.
The battle scenes had just enough gore to add realism without going over the top with guts and yuck. We certainly aren't seeing the true Genghis Khan. As a visual spectacle, it is all but overwhelming, putting to shame some of the recent historical epics from Hollywood. Mongol covers his early life and first steps to power, while he still went by his given name, Temüjin.
