This is one of those rare times where if the movie isn't full of fighting and sex, it's not historically accurate!

He was never a slave in his early life.

At times like this, I really wish I hadn't deleted my 15 page research paper about Genghis Khan and the Mongol Empire that I did for my 8th great final project.

It is obvious that this movie won't be able to cover most of the story but I really hope that it shows the battles between Genghis Khan and his bestfriend/bloodbrother Jamukah. Also, covering the kidnapping and rescuing of his first wife would be cool.

There is a 10 year difference between the kidnapping and the rescue.

You need a Lord of the Ring trilogy to cover his life and that would only be the summary.

one 2 hr movie is cr*p.

I think the man deserve better then a 2-hour hollywood's reinterpertation of his life.

I wouldn't mind a timeskip... I don't really expect some modernized movie with "epic" battle scenes to really give any solid information about such great historical figure. I really wonder how they pulled it off and what parts of his history they decided to focus in on. If they did try to get an "overall" view of his entire life then I definietly agree with you that this movie will be bad.

I think my husband is a little perterbed he never saw an open casting call for this LOL

I mean really, a half-asian with 20+ years swordplay experience? he's a shoe-in

However we'll go see it, he LOVES a good war type movie even if it's not 100% historically accurate...

Wasn't this actually *made* by and in the country that counts Genghis as their "homeboy"? If so, I'd expect it to be a bit legendary and epic.

This movie wasn't made by Hollywood.The staff and director are from Russian and German film companies.The movie itself was made in Mongolia and Kazahkstan (Yeah that's right ).So theres no Hollywood bureaucracy involve here.

He wasn't a slave, his mother and her children (including Khan, don't remember his real name) was exiled from their clan and was left to fend for themselves during their child and teen hood. Most wouldn't have survived on their own after being banish from their clan. Khan was a great charismatic leader and strategist. He was nothing that became one of the greatest conqueror and forged the largest empire in history.

if they insist that he was salve who raise up and became the the great conqueror than i don't see any difference between them and Hollywood.

Madness? This is GENGHIS KHAN!!!!!

Sorry, can't resist.

I hope, without much conviction really, that it will be half as good as that crazy German song "Dschinghis Khan," though one could doubt my sanity for trying to compare a movie with a song. They either have to go crazy or completely serious to be able to create a masterpiece worthy of the magnificent skull mountains that those Mongols used to build for fun and profit.

To be honest, I'd rather have a TV series on the saga of his and his descendants' lives than a simple one-shot movie. A TV series like that extremely long Chinese one on the "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" would be gloriously epic.
