To anyone who has ever yearned to see woolly mammoths in full stampede across the Alps, 10,000 BC can be heartily recommended. There's also a flock of "terror birds" (lethal ostriches on steroids) in a steaming jungle only a splice away from the heroes' snow-dusted alpine habitat. And lo, somewhere in the vastness of the North African desert lies a city whose slave inhabitants alternately teem like the crowds in Quo Vadis during the burning of Rome and trudge in hieratically menacing formations like the workers in Metropolis. That's pretty much it for the cool stuff. Setting movies in prehistoric times is dicey. Apart from the "Dawn of Man" sequence in 2001: A Space Odyssey, only Quest for Fire makes the grade, and its creators had the good sense to limit the dialogue to grunts and moans. 10,000 BC boasts a quasi-biblical narrator (Omar Sharif) and characters who speak in formed, albeit uninteresting, sentences (including a New Age–y "I understand your pain"). But let no one say the storytelling isn't primitive. The narrator speaks of "the legend of the child with the blue eyes" and bingo, here's the kid now. When, grown up to be Camilla Belle, she's carried off by "four-legged demons" (guys on horseback to you). The neighbour boy (Steven Strait) who hankers to make myth with her leads a rescue mission into the great unknown world beyond their mountaintop. His name is D'Leh, which is Held, the German for "knight," spelled backward. So yes, there is some hidden meaning after all.

10,000 BC is the latest triumph of the ersatz from writer-director Roland Emmerich. Like Stargate (1994), Independence Day (1996), and The Day After Tomorrow (2004) before it, it's shamelessly cobbled together out of every movie Emmerich can remember to pilfer from (though to be fair, the section in pre-ancient Egypt harks back to his own Stargate). Emmerich's saving grace is that his films' cheesiness is so flagrant, his narratives so geared for instant gratification, he can seem like a kid simultaneously improvising and acting out a story in his backyard: "P'tend there's this alien ... p'tend maybe he came from Atlantis or something...." Just don't p'tend it has anything to do with real movie-making. --Richard T. Jameson

Product Description

From director Roland Emmerich (The Day After Tomorrow) comes 10,000 BC, a sweeping odyssey into a mythical age of prophesies and gods, when spirits ruled the land and mighty mammoths shook the earth.

In a remote mountain tribe, the young hunter D'Leh (Steven Strait, The Convenant) has found his heart's passion - the beautiful Evolet (Camilla Bell, When A Stranger Calls). But when a band of mysterious warlords raid his village and kidnap Evolet, D'Leh must lead a small group of hunters to the end of the world in order to rescue her. As they venture into unknown lands, the group discovers there are civilisations beyond their own and that mankind's reach is far greater then they ever knew. With each new encounter D'Leh starts to build his small group into an army. Driven by destiny, the unlikely warriors must battle prehistoric predators whilst braving the harshest elements.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get the popcorn out and just enjoy 10 April 2009
Was this magnificent movie-making? No. But it was an enjoyable ride all the same and I liked it despite its clunky script. It didn't really pretend to be much more than it was - a popcorn movie for a rainy Sunday afternoon. Don't analyse it. Don't expect historical accuracy or intellectual depth. Just enjoy the romp and you'll probably find it's better than you expected.

I'm willing to pay £8 for a Blu-Ray copy just for the scene with the big cat in the pit, alone!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not half as much fun as it sounds 17 Dec 2010
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
A movie as bonkers as Roland Emmerich's 10,000 B.C. really ought to be a lot more fun than this actually is. Partially inspired by some of Graham Hancock's less daffy theories of a lost higher civilisation in the Stone Age who really built the pyramids, this sees Steven Strait's hunter-gatherer setting off after the slavers who took the love of his life and the village's other hunters to build the pyramids (with a little bit of help from mammoths, of course). The title promises enjoyable nonsense along the lines of the Harryhausen One Million Years B.C., and with a sabre-tooth tiger and some Terror Birds thrown into the mix the elements are certainly there for good old fashioned brain-off entertainment, but at times it feels almost as long a slog as the one that takes its hero from the barren mountains of New Zealand across Namibia to the plains of Giza. Certainly the first half is pretty dull, with even the scene with Terror Birds (think big turkeys with big teeth, which is at least appropriate for Christmas) picking off slaves and slavers alike in long grass playing like a considerably less effective version of the velociraptor attack from Spielberg's The Lost World with a bit of Mysterious Island thrown in for bad measure.

Things do finally pick up a bit when they finally reach `the mountains of the Gods,' but not really enough. It may be the most spectacular part of the picture but at times it feels like an early rejected draft of Stargate - oh look, another evil godlike villain who may be an alien or from Atlantis, and what's this, revolting slaves led by a white man from a far-off land? Clichés like this really need more panache than they're given here to come off, and the casting doesn't exactly help you overlook the film's shortcomings.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Loved This Movie 29 July 2008
By yl_ksa
ok, alot of people watched this movie and gave it really bad reviews, you can see that in the reviews here in amazon and u can also see it in the IMDB rating...however, I bought this movie and watched it...

I really enjoyed the story, its nice and it keeps you wanting also looks amazing on blu-ray...if u r the kind who only watched a movie for action and thrills then most probably u wont like the movie, but if u r into a nice story with great special effects, then this movie is for u...
I give this movie a 4/5 stars and i recommend it for blu-ray fans, if ur not gonna buy it, rent it and check it out atleast...

4.0 out of 5 stars New Age of Aquarius stuff 5 Aug 2008
New Age of Aquarius Enlightenment Revolution Movement movie for kids, "10,000bc" now out on DVD. Interesting arcane references to astrology, the North Star, human sacrifice, Atlantis, glimpses of anachronistic maps, Masonic compass, plus the switch from hunter-gatherer to warrior and the struggle of the emerging farming peasant in the Nile valley against a parasitical ruling oligarchy. An Elite astrologically fixated freakish ruling dynastic oligarchy that in turn farms/enslaves the peasantry. Loved the amusing revolutionary toppling of the golden capstone of Cheops and the Sphinx, still in Lion form, looking at the Leo Constellation in 10,000bc, during the last Age of Leo. Although the original Sphinx may indeed be that old I am not entirely convinced the "York Rite Capstone" fell off a nearly completed Orion Belt Cheops Pyramid quite that long ago, but the reference was probably more symbological rather than attempting any real historical accuracy. Problem is of course that most people will not get the arcane references to Osiris, Isis, Set and Horus et al unless they understand quite a bit more about the oligarchy, and our weird Bohemian Grove attending Lords and Masters, than the Tee Vee mind-drug normally lets the goyim see. Was a bit disappointed that the astrological stone with a hole for stargazing did not show us Crux or the god Horus on the southern Horizon, those who have watched Zeitgeist might have chuckled.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a watch 2 Sep 2013
The CGI's take prominence in this lightweight production which is a cross between One Million Years Bc [DVD] [1966] and Apocalypto [DVD] (2006) without the blood-letting and gore.

The acting is adequate without being impressive and it's a good storyline that both adults and children can enjoy.

It's quite a feelgood film ultimately,and is safe for children to watch with realistic,clever depictions of prehistoric creatures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I thought it was going to be!!! 5 April 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I thought this was great, initially I was put off by bad reviews, but actually it all hung together. Ok so it's not a masterpiece, but it was entertaining! I think people are mistaking understated acting for bad-acting! It's nowhere near as bad as Tomb of the dragon emperor, which really was atrocious!!!
