10,000 B.C Movie Review!


Marketing campaign really did a fantastic job this time around, at least I know it works for this movie. I mean with a number of great posters that feature prehistoric animals & a seemingly not so bad trailer, I was hoping that 10,000 B.C would turn out to be a fun ride popcorn movie but unfortunately the final result is somehow dissapointing. Well, guess I should have listen to my girlfriend's advice as she predicted that this movie will be bad, even worst than AVP-R & I already have been warned like hundred of times.

Anyway, 10,000 B.C tells a story of a young hunter name D'Leh who has a crush on a beautiful woman name Evolet. When Evolet is kidnap by a group of mysterious warlords, D'Leh is forced to lead a small group of hunters to journey to the end of the world to save her & in the end, uncover a lost civilization where pyramids are build & a so called god who brutally enslaved people.

I was pretty sure that the story will be somehow similar to the Mel Gibson's Apocalypto but I didn't expect that it would be that boring & tired.

You can actually feel the boringness even at the beginning of the show which feature a scene that involve a group of Mammoths being hunt down by the hunter. I actually felt sad when the animal died & personally do not like the idea that killing a Mammoth is something to be proud of. Well, I know they needed food to survive but they can hunt for other animals instead of the ever lovely gentle Mammoth for food. Maybe a mean nasty not so friendly type of animals would be good. Anyway, this scene is sort of pointless & totally unnecessary if you ask me.

The journey itself is a very long & torturing process. I believe the movie is trying to capture those moments that is seen from the movie The Lord of the Rings where beautiful scenary or landscape is present & an unknown danger lies ahead through their journey to the end of the world. By the way, if you're thinking that putting a sabretooth & some bird eating flesh into the picture will help spice things up & in this case, on the action part, well, not entirely true as they only appear once or twice in the whole movie & you hardly get a good look at them. One thing I can be sure of is that the graphic for the sabretooth tiger looks awful.

Featuring an unknown cast, special effect that is not so great, lack of characters developement, lousy action sequences & a story that basically has been told in Mel Gibson's Apocalypto, 10,000 B.C is a movie that is not worth spending your money & time seeing it in the theater. It doesn't even feel like it was during the Ice Age era.

Wait for the DVD to release & rent it instead. Roland Emmerich really did a bad job this time if compare with his other successful movie such as Independence Day.
