Uuughh…..Earl not know what to think about movie…. 10000 BC follows the story of D’Leh, if I’m spelling that right. D’leh Steve(I am so not adding that to safari’s dictionary, let’s just call him Steve) is just your regular caveman, he enjoys hunting, hunting, staring at women and forcing them to love him, and more hunting. One day these slave drivers kidnap “his woman” Evolet, taking her to who knows where, and it’s up to D’Leh Steve and Steve’s friends to help rescue her by traveling what seems like the entire earth. When I was sitting watching this movie, the one thing that continued to pop into my head was “Where are they?” One second there is like this savannah chasing “Mannaks”, next frame they’re in snow, the next they’re in the desert! If you’re looking for a movie with plenty of historical inaccuracies, this is the movie for you. Steve and his African friends that are supposed to be on the other side of the world are great buds, that is until the I-Don’t-Know-What-Race-That-Could-Be Come and kidnap them. Don’t get me wrong, this wasn’t a REALLY BAD movie, it was just kinda bland to me. Yea, I know they’re cavemen, but I would have liked to see more dialogue. I didn’t really care about the characters, to see them live or die, or not that much. The movie spans over an hour and a half, which can kinda felt dragged on. Overall, it’s an action movie. There are mannak chases and spears being thrown and people getting sacrificed, which was the funniest part of the movie. There’s also some romance tossed in, and it’s probably the strongest emotional part of the movie, however I was totally confused at the ending. WHAT HAPPENED, someone, please explain to me how that happens in a non-fictional setting. The movie is very action-y, but just doesn’t offer too much depth, it reminded me a little of Jumper. This movie’s not really good, but it’s not really bad, it’s just one of those right in the middle. If you’re looking for JUST an action movie with not too much plot or depth to it, this is a good choice, if not, go with something like Iron Man.
