Theater or Renter: Mongol

The Plot / Story: Mongol looks at the life and legend of Genghis Khan. It follows Temudgin from his perilous childhood through to his adulthood and the battle that sealed his destiny as Genghis Kahn.

I gave the trailer a 4 out of 5. It succeeded in making me curious about the film. The images looked neat but were not entirely stunning.

I think this will be a renter. First due to it's limited release and my not living in a major metropolitan area I doubt it will make it to the theaters in my area. Secondly I do want to see this film but I'm not driven to see it. I'm curious to see their take on the life of Genghis Kahn. I find him to be one of the more fascinating historical characters and I tend to enjoy projects that take a look at his life. I'm also curious to see how much of current politics are put into or and influenced by the historical events covered by this film. Finally, I hope and expect that this movie will feature and show the vast, varied and beautiful lands that Genghis Kahn ruled over.
