* BloodBrothers / BloodOath: As boys, Temudgin and Jamukha pledge loyalty to each other, complete with a Blood Oath palm-slicing ritual. Thereafter they call each other "brother". So when Jamukha eventually becomes Temudgin's rival and enemy, it's SeriousBusiness.

* CallBack / ChekhovsGun: Early in the film, Temudgin, his father Esugei, and their party, hide in a cave when a thunderstorm passes. Esugei explains that "Thunder means our god Tengri is angry. All Mongolians are afraid of it." Later, during the final battle, another thunderstorm arrives, but Temudgin rallies his troops and wins the battle. An astonished Jamukha asks why he wasn't afraid, and Temudgin explains that he was no longer afraid because he had nowhere to hide.

* CallBack / CassandraTruth: When Temudgin is bought as a slave by a Tangut lord, the lord's Buddhist monk says don't do it, because Temudgin will bring destruction. The lord laughs at this, and imprisons Temudgin with a sign over his cell mocking Temudgin's pledge to destroy the Tangut kingdom. The monk, for his part, asks Temudgin to spare the monastery when he wrecks the Tanguts. Temudgin [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongol_conquest_of_Western_Xia wrecks the Tanguts]], but spares the monastery.

* SparedByTheAdaptation: You'd expect Jamukha to die after Temudgin defeats his army in the climax. He was put to death in real life.

''Mongol'' was directed by Creator/SergeiBodrov, and was [[InternationalCoproduction a joint Russian/Kazakh/German production]]. The film was shot in [[UsefulNotes/{{Mongolia}} Inner Mongolia]] and the dialogue is in the Mongolian language. It is a considerably better film than previous Genghis Khan biopics such as the disastrous ''Film/TheConqueror'' (1956, with Creator/JohnWayne as Temudgin!) and ''Film/GenghisKhan'' (1965), as well as being more historically accurate.

accurate, though it takes its share of major artistic license.

'''''Mongol''''' is a 2007 film {{Biopic}} about UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan. The film traces the early part of the life of Temudgin, the man who became Genghis Khan, starting with his selection of future wife Borte when he was nine years old. The film follows Temudgin through his father Esugei's murder, the usurpation by Targutei (another member of Temudgin's clan), Temudgin's friendship and then rivalry with Jamukha (leader of another clan), his defeat by Jamukha, his return and triumph, and Temudgin's eventual unification of the various Mongol tribes.

* WarGod: Tengri is depicted as one - seeing how Temujin prays to him before a battle. Such as it is, there actually is a god of war in Turko-Mongol mythology - Kyzaghan, a deity that some note is quite similar to the Norse [[NorseMythology Odin]].
