An uneven adventure-drama, Genghis Khan is still a well acted, primarily by Omar Sharif in the title role, and entertaining enough film.

Prince Temujin (OMAR SHARIF) watches the execution of his father by the ruthless Mongol leader, Jamuga (STEPHEN BOYD), who forces Temujin and his people into slavery. Escaping into the mountains, Temujin vows to avenge his father and unite the Mongol people. He kidnaps and eventually marries Bortei (FRANCOISE DORLEAC), a woman betrothed to Jamuga. He then raises an army and saves China from Jamuga’s invaders, prompting the emperor (ROBERT MORLEY) to convey upon him the title Genghis Khan.



This comes with an 8-page booklet. The only feature included is the Original Theatrical Trailer.


VIDEO – 3.75/5, AUDIO – 3.5/5

Twilight Time releases Genghis Khan presented in its original 2.35 widescreen aspect ratio and given a 1080p high-definition transfer and although there were some specs here and there, it was a good looking picture and colors were generally bright.

The disc includes a standard but effective DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track.

OVERALL – 2.75/5

Overall, an uneven adventure-drama, Genghis Khan is still a well acted, primarily by Omar Sharif in the title role, and entertaining enough film. The Blu-ray release by Twilight Time offers up good video/audio transfers but sadly is lacking the features department.

  1. DVD displays a running time of 1:58:40 and the Blu-ray 1:58:47, a discrepancy of seven seconds. Like all NTSC DVDs, if one actually times them with a stopwatch in real-time they are longer than the player’s on-screen display; Blu-rays, on the other hand, always show this in real-time (the longer time is reflected). So both formats have the same duration in real-time but are reported differently because of timecode differences (see below), and both play film slightly slower than what one would see in a theater using a perfectly calibrated m projector if one existed.
