MOVIE REVIEW

Review by Robert Bell

Mongol is a beautifully shot, wonderfully scored epic drama sure to find international success with a surprisingly American disposition. While the film features stunning cinematography and exceptional battle sequences, it also feels like yet another bloated Western epic with atrocious exposition-based scripting and direction that focuses on eye candy rather then subtext or meaning. Mongol isn’t a particularly good film, but marks an improvement for writer/director Sergei Bodrov (Bear’s Kiss), who has at least managed to tell a linear, somewhat cohesive story here.
