10,000 BC… Wasn’t that bad, really!

Hey there…

First of all, I just have to say that this movie wasn’t as bad as I was led to believe. Sure it’s over the top in places and a bunch of baloney as far as historical facts go… But it wasn’t THAT bad… Come on!

Roland Emmerich delivers a frivolous romp through Hollywood history for 2 hours. That’s all this is. We get cool effects. Some characters you sort of care about. And a satisfying ending. What more could you want?

[rating:2.5/4]

Will I be rushing out to buy this on DVD any time soon? Nope. Did I enjoy it? Yup.

Here‘s the IMDB link.

This movie starred Steven Strait and Camilla Belle did fine in their roles. Not a lot of work on their part was actually required (though Strait as D’leh did have to do a lot of running in places I think). Belle as Evolet did fine as the feisty heroine.

Sabertooth Tiger from 10,000 BC

What really was the star of this film was the sabertooth tiger. He was cool. And the mammoths weren’t bad either. You can forgive the Eric von Danniken Chariots of the Gods and Atlantis references and just take it as it is. 🙂

If you take it for what it is — light entertainment — it meets that expectation just fine. I give it 2.5/4.

Until next time… go see a movie!

  2. Thanks John! I just checked out your Home Theater Guide part 1 article and left a comment for you there also. I think you’re absolutely right about people having different expectations for it. I had low expectations and it exceeded them. I consider that a bonus. 🙂

  3. I thought it was decent. I heard from several people they wanted the two hours of their life back that the movie lasted but I really enjoyed it. But I tend to like movies no one else does. If you take it with a grain of salt, its a good fantasy movie.
