Mongol (2007) - This is a fictional historical film about the rise to the power of the great Genghis Khan of Mongolia. The film was co-produced, co-written and directed by Russian-American film maker, Sergei Bodrov. Although the story-telling is not well transitioned between each important historical events that the film wants to portray, the film as a whole is enjoyable to watch. The cinematography is wonderful with a number of breathtakingly beautiful scenes as the backdrop of the story of fighting and survival of the young Temüjin, who later came to be known as Genghis Khan. The fighting sequence is gruesomely real. On a side note, the film was nominated for the Oscars in 2007 for Best Foreign Language Film as a submission from Kazakhstan.
