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.

Stills from 10,000 BC

From Amazon.co.uk

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

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!

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 more...it 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...

Format: DVD
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.

Format: DVD
10,000 BC provides an enjoyable romp through pre-history very much inspired by a combination of Stargate and Jean M Auel's Earth Children novels.

It tells the story of the journey of the man to rescue his love who has been kidnapped and taken as a slave to work on the building of the Great Pyramids. Along the way he befriends a sabre tooth tiger, fights raptors and becomes leader of a small army of tribes who have all lost members to the slavers.

It tramples all over history to make the story fun so as long as you take it in the vein it is meant it provides a good evening's entertainment.

The extras on this two disc version run to over two hours and include an alternate ending, deleted scenes and documentaries on the story design and historical elements.

Format: DVD
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.

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!!!

Format: DVD
When I read the back of this dvd, I was promised a special effects extravaganza, with a large saber tooth tiger on the front looking to promise a movie full of action, adventure and special effects.

Instead I got thirty seconds of a sabre tooth tiger with 1hour 30 mins of a man resembling jesus walking across the bloomin desert. The acting was at times cheesy and cringeworthy, not to mention the cheesey storyline.

I really think if you are a director and you are going to put a huge photo of an exciting looking sabre tooth on the cover, then you really should let your audience actually see the thing for longer than a minute. very disapointed, reckon even the kids will hate it!! Only watch this movie when it comes on tv for free!
