Mongol delves into the dramatic and harrowing early years of the Genghis Khan, who was born as Temudgin in 1162.

- Critics' reviews
"Mongol is a ferocious film, blood-soaked (...) As a visual spectacle, it is all but overwhelming, putting to shame some of the recent historical epics from Hollywood. (...) Rating: ★★★½ (out of four)."
Roger Ebert: Chicago Sun-Times
