Let me start by telling you some great reasons NOT to watch this movie. If you are looking for mindless violence, superbly choreographed action sequences, historical accuracy, big budget movie feel or fast paced narration, then avoid this movie. It offers you none of these.
What this movie does have is a good story line, compelling narration that involves the audience, play of human emotions and great acting. It is memorable because of all these factors.
Genghis Khan in real life was a ruthless man and unlikely to posses any of the stellar qualities ascribed to him in this movie. But that is the creative license we must allow film makers to have. Otherwise it would be drab world where all movies are documentaries.
If you want to know about the real Genghis Khan, read a book.If you want to be immersed in good story telling, then watch this movie.
