Genghis Khan: To The Ends Of The Earth And Sea ★★½

I was ready to like this, but this is another disappointment. The soundtrack was distractingly wrong, the actors were apparently never allowed to look at each other (all dialog is directed at the middle distance while the actor speaking is more or less facing the camera but not enough to break the third wall), the tribes were color coded, and Borte got short shrift. Some cool battle scenes (despite the color coding) and bonus points for location shooting and actual Mongolian horses, but... meh. Should have just rewatched Mongol (which I absolutely love) instead.
