Not as good as the original one shot in 1986
2 December 2003 | by zzmaleSee all my reviews

This is the joint production of China and Mongolia, in which China pay most of the bill, do most of the work, such as making those elaborate costume, many of which by hand. Mongolia provide the setting, but nothing more due to lack of money. Furthermore, under the decades of Soviet rule, Genghis Khan was considered a huge villain and anything about him was banned in Mongolia and as a result, historical documents and artifacts of Genghis era is far more abundant in China than Mongolia. However, this new film does not have a very good story like the one shot in 1986, and mostly it is just another scenic show.
