A very good movie about Temujiin's early life and how he became Genghis Khan, leader of all Mongol tribes. The acting was simply good, the costumes worn seemed very realistic and combined with spherical shots of the Mongolian steppes makes that you really get sucked into the story and the world in which it takes place. Battle scenes were also abundant and realistic, showing the mounted warfare of past times.
As a rather critical person when it comes to historical accuracy, I'd recommend this to anyone that likes historical movies. Though this movie has it's inaccuracies, they do not hurt Temujin's character or the movie in general. Coming from the West, I also had no problem with the actors speaking Japanese instead of Mongolian. Simply see it if you have the chance, you won't be disappointed.
