Product Description

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Synopsis

Director Roland Emmerich might have set this action epic in prehistoric times, but audiences can expect plenty of high tech special effects in this film from the man that brought Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow to the screen. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I had seen this film before and loved it. My partner was less keen having read the various negative reviews out there. I would actually say this film does a great job! It is narrated throughout by 'Old Mother' and is quite unusual in its narrative but is gripping non-the-less and I would absolutely watch again. Once I convinced my partner to ignore the online reviews and watch it he really enjoyed it too and likewise could not understand the negativity towards it. Each to their own I guess. But the story line is gripping and fun to watch. Action, romance, adventure. Brilliant!

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...

Well, aside from the historical inaccuracies that everyone has pointed out, this movie had horrid acting, insipid dialog, and a cliché plot line that any moderately skilled elementary school kid could have written. So what are the redeeming qualities of this movie? The scenery, some of the CGI, and that's about it. On a technical level, I found it hilarious that for all the hype about this movie, it was far worse than I could have imagined. Someone made a comment about the lighting of this movie. There were definitely inconsistencies in the lighting, which added to the list of things wrong with this movie and made it feel like perhaps it was a rushed project.

I think if this movie were made without any dialog except for the narrative, it would have been much more enjoyable as a whole.

10,000 BC certainly isn't one of the year's stand-out films, but it does seem to have attracted an unfair amount of criticism. We enjoyed the mix of woolly mammoths, sabre-tooth tigers, murderous slavers and giant pyramids. It's thoroughly unoriginal, and some of the CGI is a bit wonky (can no one animate a big cat with any real success? The lions in I Am Legend were pretty cartoony, too), but it's not as big a stinker as many critics would have you believe.
The opening sequences are a bit of a giveaway; the action centres of two tribal children, and fast-forwards from their young romance to their coming-of-age ceremony. OK, so this is a kid's movie really (much as Jumper turned out to be); an adventure-quest set in a time of spear-chucking hunters and giant, killer, sabre-toothed ostriches. Yes: mayhem inducing ostriches. What's not to love about killer emus...?
Viewed as family entertainment (no gore, straightforward moral messages about staying loyal to your loved ones, making allies across tribal boundaries, and so on), 10,000 BC makes plenty of sense if you're happy to suspend your snobbery along with your disbelief for 90 minutes. Unlike a couple of other well-hyped recent films (Cloverfield springs to mind), I wasn't actually bored during 10,000 BC -- and it was impossible not to let out a wee 'YAY!' when the enslaved mammoths got their rampaging revenge on their captors.
It even has a happy ending. So if you want some frivilous, un-stressful family entertainment, then 10,000 BC delivers. It's not clever, or subtle, or even particularly well produced. But it was fun.

On a small screen, you will run into the usual problems with CGI-heavy films; that the glitches which get masked on a cinema screen tend to show up on a TV at home.

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!

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!

This is undoubtedly a movie of epic proportion and in my opinion it delivers exactly that. It's absolutely cram packed with action, tension and the ingredients that makes movies into blockbusters. The SFX is out of this world, and ironically it's about our world, but centres on a period of time where there is little or no factual history - little over 12,000 years. It's an amazing perspective vision of Roland Emmerich and Harald Kloser that creates a world that holds potential answers to some of the mysteries; such as the evolution of the pyramids and the advance civilisations that lived beyond their time.

The story about a primitive tribe called the Yagahl and a young boy called D'Leh; a young hunter who's abandoned by his father and grows up with his childhood love Evolet (Camilla Belle).

When a group of mysterious marauders ravage through the Yagahl village and kidnaps members of their tribe, including Evolet, D'Leh and a hunting party set-off on a quest to rescue them. Their journey is filled with danger as he encounters some prehistoric animals such as killer birds, and sabre-toothed tigers. His quest leads him and his party beyond the mountains where they encounter different evolved civilisations and tribes. He later discovers that his people and many more taken from other tribes are forced to work as slaves in building the great pyramids. D'Leh begins to mount an army to conquer the gods who have imprisoned his people, and bring down the tyranny before them all.

It's an action packed, visual experience that does it self justice. I could watch this movie more than once, and award it full marks, for creativeness, effects, storyline and the ability to make you think.
