Changez Khan...

Mongol (2007) is a film of massive proportions, about the life of the grand-scale Genghis Khan. The cast, crew, visuals and sets are all huge. And with the mix of Russians, Chinese, Mongols, and Japanese working together on the production, it's a shocker how well-made it is.

As with all biopics, it's educational - but unlike all biopics, it's actually quite interesting, and manages to be entertaining. Jaw-dropping battle scenes, authentic sets, and good acting all the way through, this is the film that Asoka (2001) wanted to be. The sequels, if they ever get made, have big shoes to fill.
