I saw this recently at an indie theater. It BLEW ME AWAY. Lots of action, fighting, blood & guts, great story (it’s about the early life of Genghis Khan, one of the most fascinating historical figures of all time imo) and the acting was stellar!
Yes it is in subtitles, so those of you who don’t like to read while being entertained may want to stay away. Subtitles HAS to be the reason it’s not a big hit in all the theaters now; it really is MUCH better than most of the stuff that hits the big screen here anyway.
I personally liked that they used subtitles in this movie because the actors were true to the ethnic (and as far as I know) linguistic character of the film.
It’s GREAT. And it definitely raises the t-levels by the end of the movie. I know most T-nationers would dig it- assuming you can handle subtitles.
The only sucky thing is that I don’t think it’s playing much of anywhere anymore. But for those who have netflix, remember to put it in your queue, you won’t regret it!
And if you do, fuck it, bring on the verbal rotten tomatoes!
