Saw Mongol last night, a film about the early life of Ghengis Khan. It was great, with lovely vistas, engaging battle scenes, and a compelling story. Also, excellent hats and plenty of horses. It's playing at the Shirlington, you should see it if you like Kurosawa's films - or hats.

The gore level is pretty minimal considering the subject matter. Even in the battle scenes there is only some stage blood flying and then bodies heaped on the ground.

For the horse enthusiasts - they didn't (couldn't, most likely) use the correct type of horse. But it's a minor point.

I think I saw a promo for this - it's definitely something I
want to see, but wasn't 110% sure I wanted to pay theatre
prices for - I may wait until it comes out on disc.

Worth seeing on a big screen, though.

I'm not even sure why they gave it an R rating.

Great soundtrack, too!
