Description by OLDIES.com:

GENGHIS KHAN, after being raised by the evil leader Jamuga, escapes and forms his own tribe in the mountains. He returns to steal away and marry Jamuga's girl, and then goes to China. It is there that he gains the respect of the leader of the Chinese by fending off the warriors of Jamuga.

Product Description:

The internationally produced historical epic GENGHIS KHAN sometimes wavers uncertainly between spectacle and self-parody. Though Omar Sharif essays the title role, top billing is bestowed upon Stephen Boyd as Genghis Khan's mentor-turned-enemy Jamuga. It's hard to generate audience sympathy for a Mongolian leader who laid waste to much of the civilized world, but Sharif manages to pull it off. While the battle scenes are impressive, the most memorable sequence involves an outsized fireworks display (which turns out to be a clever bit of military strategy). James Mason is amusing as an epigrammatic Chinese leader, Eli Wallach is appropriately hissable as the film's main villain, and the late Francoise Dorleac is decorative as the romantic bone of contention between Genghis Khan and Jamuga. Most of the film was lensed in Yugoslavia, a country that served as a generic location for many a historical pageant of the 1960s and 1970s.

Rating 3.5 genghis khan Movie Lover: from LANSFORD, PA US -- November, 25, 2010

A good adventure movie. Comes across very well in the widescreen format. I remember this movie from the time it ran at the local theater. The only disappoint with this epic is the lack of many epic battle scenes. The movie can be considered more of a dramatic, half accurate film. Still this is a great movie to add to one's collection.
