Storyline

Mostly fictionalized account of the life of Ghenghis Khan, the Mongol warlord whose 13th century armies conquered much of the known world. Named Temujin, he was taken prisoner by the rival warlord Jamuga and as punishment was forced to wear a large round wooden stock that severely restricted his movements. With the help of two supporters, the wise-man Geen and the strongman Sengal he manages to escape. He now begins his quest to unify all of the Mongol tribes. He faces great success but his old nemesis Jemuga keeps appearing at various times in his life leader to a final battle between the two. Written by garykmcd

what atmosphere - outstanding - as good a boy's dream as they get
17 September 2004 | by (sweden) – See all my reviews

When I was thirteen and a half, I saw this film at least three times in a row. I've seen it as a grown-up on video and it still gave away some of its magic. Except in 'odd man out', James Mason has never been better as an actor. Morley shines. Both of them are so much more Chinese with dignity than any Chinese could be. But this movie really belongs to Francois Dorleac, Omar Sharif, Stephen Boyd and a litte Telly Savalas. T and a that made a boy dream in a surrounding where you usually did not see them in those times. Pure fantasy - who cares about history, it's all baloney anyway - this is as true as any history. It's fantasy and adventure and I'm looking forward to see it on DVD in widescreen - but when?
