A lot of spectacle, a lot of melodrama, a lot of horse dung
Genghis Khan was one of the great murderers in history, dining at the same table with Napoleon Bonaparte and Adolph Hitler. One assumes that their lust for land, power and the deaths of their enemies and victims, along with a practical indifference to the deaths of their own soldiers and people, sprang from how easily bored they could be.       In Genghis Khans' case, if this movie is to believed (not a good idea with most movies' presentations of "history"), …

Barely Scratches The Surface of Genghis Khan's Life
   GENGHIS KHAN: to the ENDS OF THE EARTH AND SEA (2007, Aoki Okami: chi hate um tsukiru made) is a Japanese produced epic directed by Shinichiro Sawai.

Genghis Khan was one of the great military minds of history. He built an empire that spread from China into Europe. His armies fought in modern Hungary and even, if I remember correctly, into Vienna.

We see him coming of age, meeting his future wife and blood-brother, and learning military …

"Genghis Khan: To the Ends of the Earth and Sea"    The Mystery and the Majesty    Amos Lassen    I have always liked epic movies and "Genghis Khan" is an epic in every sense of the word. It was in planning stages for 27 years and is the most expensive Japanese film ever made with costs estimated at $30 million. Because it cost so much it had to have a wide audience in order to recoup its expenses and because of that it sacrifices reality. …
