What he eventually brings back with him to the West is a chronicle that changed history forever. Written by
Out of 1.5+ Billion Chinese in the World Kublai Khan is portrayed
by Brian Dennehy? You've got to be kidding me... Worst casting than the actor that played Charlie Chan... Don't get me wrong, I think Brian is a great actor, just the wrong guy for this movie.
As others have said, beautiful locations, costuming, good camera work... The casting was about the worst ever. Is then no Chinese or even an Asian actor that could not have been cast for Khan?
BD Wong was okay for his part.
I wished they'd show more of the culture, the food, the dance, music the art. It would be a lot cheaper to produce than big war scenes. Marco's lady is beguiling and more of a romance developed would certainly have been an improvement to the movie as well.
As a Chinese American I was hoping to see more historically interesting facts, weaponry, food, scenery, art and culture. Oh well...
Such as shameful waste...
