One of the the most accurate historical movies of all time.
14 November 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I study the migration and history of different people. The will of ghenghis khan is one of the the most accurate historical movies of all time down to the smallest detail. All names, customs, armour and weapons are correct. You can tell this movie has been worked on a lot.

Enormous effort has been put into this movie, with sublime photography, physical sets and good/decent acting. It even has references to previous civilizations such as the Skytic* people and northern mythology*. *Ghenghis khan wears a pendant with the shape of Thor's hammer, and the top of the flags used in battle end in a trident commonly used in Skytia magnum. I enjoyed this movie a lot and i hope you find this review helpful.
