Most entertaining period movie. I agree with Gregziglar, I do not watch movies for history lessons. Like Calgon, I just want it to take me away... beautiful scenery, love not lust/sex, strong women and two absolutely fascinating MEN. Merci, Sergei Bodrov

I liked this a lot. It may or may not have been historically accurate, but I don't go to movies for history lessons anyway. I go to be entertained, and this was entertaining. However, for my own particular taste, it was way too bloody. The battle scenes were edited and filmed partially with that "shaky camera" effect to enhance the tension and action, but I don't like that effect personally.

The movie was better than I thought it would be. I really enjoyed the fighting scenes.

Sorry, didn't hit the right button. Just for the record. Mongols never fought hand to hand or used swords. They never hugged each other, or said "Thank You" after receiving a gift of fermented horse milk. Also, he was never imprisoned or rescued by his wife. The sacred mountain also didn't have an alter or wolves hanging around. Mongols also never hugged each other. I guess even Russian
