Apparently the Mongolians thought this film about the early life of Genghis Khan was more than somewhat historically inaccurate.
Trouble is that few of us would be in a position to decide one way or the other.
It is best, then, to view this Oscar nomination as an all-action film - no more, no less.
Happily it is a great deal more: a sweeping, good-looking epic that might set you searching for more info on the central character.
Star Rating: 4/5
