The film starts with a tribe of cavemen that encounter a group of egyptian people (Pyramids are being constructed) and they take some of thier men and woman to force them into slavery. Along the way, they encounter more tribes that also lost people to the egyptians. The Egyptians are portrayed as very advanced with boats and massive buildings structure and machinery. The film is rated as an adventure film, but to me it played out more like a quest to get his people back. Along the way random events happen like running into massive land birds and random animals. I liked how they portrayed out of place looking people like albinos, blue eyed people as unique and different for that era. Also the egyptians costumes are normal and not over the top like some films make them out to be. (This feels/looks more real)
The film is not a documentary it's fantasy adventure. I know some people were upset because its not 100% accurate especially with cavemen speaking english. That is petty, its fun popcorn flick. The reason I rated it 3 stars was because it lacked big moments and i'm not a fan of slow motion battles.
This is one of those situations where critics largely disagreed with viewers, as the movie was a box office success and is getting almost 3.5 stars here on Amazon. Unlike critics, most people prefer action filled entertainment over scientific facts. And this movie delivered that by the bucketload. Critics generally agreed that this movie was visually stunning, drawing visual comparisons to Jurassic Park or even Lord of the Rings. However, unlike viewers, they were expecting a historical documentary instead of an epic fantasy.
In conclusion, if you want to watch a documentary, go watch Blue Planet. However, if far fetched fantasies don't make your blood boil, give this movie a try.
If you're going to make a movie about pre-historic times, why on Earth would you make the dumbest possible movie ever? Would you not want to make something that's both good and accurate that everyone can enjoy?
Instead we get mister pop-paranoia-psychology himself making what has got to be one of the worst movies in the Pre-historic genre regarding a very clean looking "caveman" who is confronted with a movie director's vision of the challenges of living with primitive technology.
This thing could have been so much better, just like another reviewer stated, but it wasn't. And what's worse is that people flocked to this film, and continue to flock to it. Me, I bought a cheapo $3 used DVD of thing to remind myself what I was missing. And ho-boy, did it deliver. So much that I may just donate the disk.
See it once, if you must.
But I'd skip it altogether.
