A fairly strong and emotional first act kept me interested for the entire 2-hour runtime, but dwelling upon the movie afterwards made me realize how simple the plot really was. The fight scenes and scenery were excellent, but there was nothing in the storyline to really entice me to see the rest of this Genghis Khan trilogy.

"Bodrov whips up enough wild, unruly energy and, in his depiction of sex as a Mongolian female's most vital commodity, sociological scraps to help overshadow the somewhat cheesy dubiousness of his myth-making project." - Nick Schager

I really enjoyed the cinematography, battle scenes, epic scope, and (fictionalized as it may be) depiction of Genghis Khan's early life. That said, the abrupt shift from "I must gather an army" to him having his massive army and engaging in the final battle in literally the next scene was ridiculously jarring, and makes Mongol feel like a 3.5-hour movie that's been edited down to 2. I'll certainly see the sequels, though.

An interesting look at Genghis Khan's rise to power. The pacing is wonky, dragging in some places while skipping over lots of important details in others. But it's an enjoyable movie that's beautifully shot, and the battle scenes are pretty cool.

It's a joke, a sad imitation of the hollywoodian ingredients. A romantic sub-plot in a movie about Gengis Khan is really necessary? feels like the much more interesting parts were cutted, with all the epicness. Good cinematography and costumes but the rest it's simply dull.

Seemed like a film that had too much cut out. While the scenery was beautiful, the fight scenes a joy to watch, and the acting nicely done, the telling of the story was all over the place. Without a decent story to envelop the film, it turns to mush.

Engaging story, awesome characters, great acting and excellent visuals. I would really love to see this movie dubbed in english. This was a thoroughly enjoyable movie to watch.

Feels like there's 90 minutes of necessary footage hiding somewhere that we didn't get to see: In their attempt to 'Braveheart' and 'El Cid' Genghis, they left out the conquering and focused on a romance that rang false and a yin-yang villain that seemed to incomprehensibly, quickly, amass armies. Frustrating.

More like "Genghis Khan - The Fictitious Origin". Here I was expecting thousands of furious mongol warriors conquering and pillaging through Eurasia and we only get a couple of fights. It's also ridiculous how they make his life revolve around a silly romantic subplot. We´re talking about a man who screwed as many women as his exhausted genitalia allowed him to, for god's sake.

Thanks for making a movie about the rise of Genghis Khan that did a terrible job of showing how he became Genghis Khan. The parts that might have been interesting (Temudgin gathering followers after his many travails) are COMPLETELY skipped to make room for a bad romance and sweeping visuals. The landscapes were beautiful mind you, but why not make a travelogue if that's all you want? I wanted a historically accurate war epic about Genghis Khan, and if that's what you want, don't see this.

Gorgeously shot--just stunning to look at. And if you can adjust your expectations of time, it's at times compelling. But when it's as beautiful as this, waiting a bit for "something to happen" is not exactly a hardship.

It does make up most of this shit whole cloth and piecemeal, but I get what they were trying to do. I mean, up until this film, Genghis was always depicted as a drooling satanic babyeater. Hell, the name of his culture is used as a derogatory synonym for the mentally handicapped-- an obvious consequence of being an illiterate, incurious person that conquered literate, curious peoples exclusively. Anyway, nice to see him at least depicted as homo sapiens. Cool battle scenes too.
