This review is from: The Clan Of The Cave Bear [DVD] (DVD)
I've read all the books and thought this film was ok as far as it went. It would have been better had it progressed further than the first novel. It was a little unsatisfying ending as it did, especially when we know what happened next in the subsequent books. Perhaps it was planned to produce a follow up film, but that never happened. The acting was reasonable and the photography and special effects were good. To criticise it for not slavishly following the book is a little churlish I think - it was only 90 minutes long, not an epic and a lot of the book's content was desciptive of flora, medicines, scenery, etc which would not easily translate into an entertaining film. All the essential points of the book were there and I enjoyed it.
