Colourful epic saved by Carlo Rustichelli
Yesen Khan (Peter White) is afraid of Sandar Khan (Kirk Morris) and his little rebel army. He has him chased, captured and sentenced to slave labour. With his friend Kublai (Furio Meniconi), Sandar Khan escapes quickly and plans more rebellion. Of course there is also a pretty woman, namely Samira (Ombretta Colli), to be rescued from a luxurious life in a palace. If you think you've seen this plot a hundred times before - yes, you did.

The best thing about this movie is the powerful music by Carlo Rustichelli. Fast beating drums and aggressive trumpets drive the action forward when those Mongol hordes ride into their next attack. The rest is bordering on the ridiculous. Kirk Morris with his coloured hair looks like an Irishman rather than a Mongol. His thin little sabre is made of plastic, obviously - he touches the blade several times with his bare hand, knowing that can't hurt. The advisor (Giulio Donnini) wears a Dracula cape which is totally out of place, what was the costume department thinking? But in the end it is a colourful epic, not too bad to spend this rainy Tuesday with.
