10,000 BC the movie was a disappointment. Do not watch it if you have not. It is not as great as what is seen from the movie trailer.
In a remote mountain tribe, the young hunter D’Leh (Steven Strait) has found his heart’s passion – the beautiful Evolet (Camilla Belle). But when a band of mysterious warlords raid his village and kidnap Evolet, D’Leh leads a small group of hunters to pursue the warlords to the end of the world to save her. As they venture into unknown lands for the first time, the group discovers there are civilizations beyond their own and that mankind’s reach is far greater than they ever knew. At each encounter the group is joined by other tribes who have been attacked by the slave raiders, turning D’Leh’s once-small band into an army.
Driven by destiny, the unlikely warriors must battle prehistoric predators while braving the harshest elements. At their heroic journey’s end, they uncover a lost civilization and learn their ultimate fate lies in an empire beyond imagination, where great pyramids reach into the skies.
Here they will take their stand against a tyrannical god who has brutally enslaved their own. And it is here that D’Leh finally comes to understand that he has been called to save not only Evolet but all of civilization.
10,000 BC movie review
Last Thursday, I watched “10,000 BC” with my friends. We were attracted by the movie trailer. We thought it was a great action / adventure movie with amazing Before Christ(BC) animals. Not quite right.
It is about the journey of a young mammoth hunter to rescue his love and his tribe. It was a rather long and boring journey, only that the people followed him becoming more and more. There are only a few scenes of the giant mammoth, at the beginning and the end of the movie.
Unlike what shows in the 10,000 BC movie poster, you will be disappointed if you expect for the fight between the young man and the saber-toothed tiger. We laugh out loud when he said to the tiger, “I save you but you don’t eat me”.
I thought the final attack against the so-called “God” would be exciting, but I was wrong again. The final war ended in 3 minutes, and it takes only a second to kill the “God”.
Do you know who is the greatest person of the story? Not the mammoth hunter. It is the wise old woman of the tribe, Old Mother. Why? “because she knows everything anything, even without a computer or satellite!”, said my friend.
Rating: 2 out of 5 (the CGI of the mammoth is great!)
