By the end of his life, Genghis Khan's Mongol Empire occupied a substantial amount of territory stretching from Central Asia to China. Although the title of the film is called RED PLUME GENGHIS KHAN, Genghis is not the main character. The main character is a wandering Turkish warrior called Ostukarci. Both good in battle and in virtue.
The film begins with Ostukarci meeting Genghis and his brothers and helping them defeat a rival warlord who has attacked them. Ostukarci saves the Khan's life. In return he is offered the opportunity to become one of his top men, however he refuses opting to travel the countryside. Genghis thanks him, gives him a horse, and asks him to do him one small favor along the way: To please stop and speak to the Sultan Seyhyul Gebel of the Ismaels and ask him to return the money that he owed to his brother.
It is here that Ostukarci's journey begins as he soon comes to discover this isn't the simple task it appears. Sadly the print I viewed was faded. However, it's still definitely worth seeing. It's an exciting, fast-paced swashbuckler that combines a very good story of love and valor with impressive battle sequences
