4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely NOT Saturday Morning kiddie fare! February 4, 2008
By Cubist
Turok, first published by Dell Comics in December 1954, came out of the anti-comic book hysteria and featured a Native American character having adventures in wild lands populated by dinosaurs. Over the years, the character has gone through various comic books creators' hands and changed with the times, including a series of popular video games, and now an animated film, Turok: Son of Stone. This motion picture attempts to pay tribute to the original comic book concept blended with an edgier, new Millennium sensibility.

The attention to detail is excellent as the lush, primitive jungle is vividly realized, immersing us in this exotic land. Turok: Son of Stone by no means looks like a cheap, direct-to-video rush job. Obviously, great care and thought went into the making of this animated film. While the look of it is in the style of a lot of contemporary Saturday morning cartoons, this film is definitely not for little kids. The opening action sequence quite vividly and viscerally announces its mature credentials with a bloody battle involving severed hands and slow-motion sprays of blood as Turok wipes out his enemies. This scene sets the tone for a series of violent slaughters and vicious skirmishes with dinosaurs. I haven't seen an animated film this unapologetically bloody and violent since Heavy Metal (Collector's Edition)). If you've grown tired of the G rated wholesomeness of Disney, or the bland nature of cartoons on television, then Turok: Son of Stone is a breath of fresh air.

There is an audio commentary by producer Evan Bailey, supervising director Tad Stones, and directors Curt Geda, Dan Riba, and Frank Squillace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turok, Son of Stone.....Slayer of Men!! February 5, 2008
Don't let the first minute or two fool you - this may start off looking like a Saturday morning cartoon, but this movie quickly disabuses the viewer of the notion with its opening battle.

Remaining faithful to the Gold Key comics, and tossing in a healthy dose of the modern comics' and video games' brutal violence. I picked this up based on a recommendation, and was not disappointed. This was a very entertaining movie, with some nice twists.

Heartily recommended.....and I'd stick with the salad if I were you.
(Watch the movie).

I bought this movie on a blind purchase after I read some reviews, and couldn't find it at Blockbuster. I almost never buy movies without watching them first, but I really wanted to see this one badly. And in the end, I'm glad I did, because this is a movie I'll probably want to share with other people I know, rather than just returning it as a rental and forgetting it.

Being a kid of the video game generation, my introduction to Turok was through the Nintendo 64 game "Turok: Dinosaur Hunter." I didn't remember much of the story, but I remember spending many a late night with my friends playing "Turok 2: Seeds of Evil" on 4-player mode (we would always fight over the Inflater Gun, it was hilarious). I only have a casual interest in comic books, so I was never particularly familiar with the comic incarnations of the character. However, with the snazzy new Turok game out on PS3, my interest in Turok has been rekindled, and after hearing good word of mouth about this DVD, I couldn't resist buying it.

While the new Turok game takes the sci-fi elements of the 80's Turok comics to the next level with a slick re-imagining Turok as a space faring mercenary fighting for his life on a lost world type planet, this movie goes in the opposite direction. This version is more in line with the 50's comics, where Turok is a warrior who is trapped in a lost world with his kin, and it doesn't take long for a villain to show up and recruit some evil Neanderthals to hunt Turok down. The movie has a pretty simple story, but it has some good themes that are clearly tailored towards the adult minds for whom the film was made. It's a respectful revisit to Turok's roots that pays homage to the source, while still maintaining freshness.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Breath of Fresh Air!!! February 5, 2008
By Bob
As a collector of straight to dvd animated films based on comic book characters, I have to say that this is one of the best which will satisfy any Turok fan. Despite today's generation being mostly familiar with the games, everyone behind this project decided to stay true to the comic to give us an origin story which was very good. If your looking for a break from today's Saturday morning garbage, well you've come to the right place because plenty of blood is spilt in this more mature/adult film.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent film, but lacks something... February 28, 2008
I've always liked the character of Turok. My dad grew up reading Turok so when Valiant comics released new Turok comics in the early 90's, we followed them. I had read a lot of good reviews about this movie but I have to say that overall it was just OK. There are two sides to this movie.
First, we have no-holds bar action and violence. There are severed heads, blood splattering, and Turok delivering good old fashion beat-downs on enemy warriors and dinosaurs alike. Turok's design is good and stays true to his comic origins. His sidekick from the comics, Andar, is there too. And the designs for the Lost Land the dinosaurs within are all very well done.
On the other hand, the animation reminds me of some of the recent Marvel and DC animated projects. And while I think that style is good, it just didn't seem to fit with all the violence. Overall, the voice cast is just ok. No one, not even Turok, seems to stand out. The musical score is great at times- very orchestral and moving. But other times, it's almost synthesized and doesn't fit with the movie.
It's an origin story for Turok and covers all the basics while adding new reasons for him to venture into the lost land. I just think this more mature movie would have benefited from more mature animation. But, it is one I recommend anyone give a try because I'm really on the fence about this one.
