Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan (2007)


     Directed by Sergei Bodrov, Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan (2007) was supposedly intended to be the first part of a trilogy… but ten years later, no follow-ups have been released. Set in the late 12th Century, the film chronicles the early life of Temujin, who later came to be known as Genghis Khan. Good attention to historic detail mixes with tense battle scenes and great cinematography to create a believable atmosphere. The cast does a good job, including Tadanobu Asano as Temujin/Genghis Khan.
