if only all films looked so beautiful,
This review is from: Mongol: The Rise to Power of Genghis Khan [DVD] (2007) (DVD)
Hands up if you are weary of murky blue cinematography in films today, are you bored by endless CGI effects and incoherent editing in action sequences. do you long for proper movies? well Mongol is a breath of fresh air from the majestic steppes. It is a ravishing movie to look at. The spectacular landscape is definitely the star of the show. Not even Peter Jackson's New Zealand comes close to this mighty wilderness. Oh this film is a joy to watch. It's well acted and directed. Few films can be called 'classic' these days but I believe Mongol can be given that title.
