Editors Note
Note Director Roland Emmerich weaves myth and legend together in this epic love story. As the Ice Age is ending, the Yagahl people are struggling to survive. When Evolet (Camilla Belle), a young, blue-eyed girl is found and brought back to the tribe, their esteemed elder, Old Mother (Mona Hammond), realizes that the child is fulfilling a prophecy and will be instrumental in saving the Yagahl. D'Leh (Steven Strait) swore his heart to Evolet when she first came to the tribe, and after many years claims her as his own. But no sooner are the young lovers together, than they are torn apart by mysterious men arriving on horseback who kidnap many of the Yagahl, including Evolet, for slave trade. Determined to save his love and their people, D'Leh embarks on a rescue mission with his father figure Tic'Tic (Cliff Curtis). Along the way, they encounter different lands, new people, and strange creatures including giant birds akin to a killer ostrich.^Mixing history and fantasy, there is little (if anything) that is historically accurate in this film. Rather, Emmerich weaves together myths and legends to unite people from different lands into one force and bring down a great evil that threatens all of their civilizations. Emmerich also tackles multiple universal themes: the redemption of an outsider, the coming of age of a boy who becomes a leader, the importance of loyalty, and the discovery and understanding of new cultures. Ultimately, he tackles the age-old saga of star-crossed lovers and the power of love. Omar Sharif narrates this love story that spans mountains, valleys, deserts, and rivers.
Reviews
Los Angeles Times "More than anything, 10,000 BC is an updated version of those old Saturday matinee action films and serials, filled with hair-breadth escapes, wild coincidences, things foretold by ancient prophecy and mysterious places..." 03/07/2008
Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "A good-looking, inventively clad cast interact among dizzying layers of CGI, visual and sound special effects to make a preposterous prehistoric adventure quest that is undeniably spectacular." 05/01/2008 p.44
Sight and Sound "An early mammoth-hunting sequence...is genuinely impressive, with CGI attending to each wind-ruffled, pachydermic hair." 05/01/2008 p.88

Review You'd think that with mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, and large, screeching birds you wouldn't need much more to deliver an entertaining romp through prehistoric times, but 10,000 B.C. proves that merely having an exotic setting won't compensate for a mundane plot and even more mundane characters...All of the ingredients are here for a solid, if routine, action epic, and, to be fair, the film does an adequate job of delivering said epic before getting increasingly silly towards the end. But that's the problem. When you have multimillion dollar special effects and the potential to watch humans vs. prehistoric beasts, "adequate" doesn't cut it. But that's all you get: adequate action sequences and adequate special effects. But that's all you get: adequate action sequences and adequate special effects...And for an "exotic" setting, 10,000 B.C. isn't all that exotic. A desert is still a desert, a jungle is still a jungle, and snow is still snow, even if you call it "white rain." Nothing in this film really makes you feel like you're transported back in time. If anything, the attempt to fuse ancient Egyptian lore, tribal warfare, and mammoths towards the end of the film is more confusing than engaging...Ultimately, though, the film's cardinal sin is to be boring...for all its attempted grandeur, 10,000 B.C. is about as slow and lumbering as a wounded mammoth.

Review If the great thrillmeister salesman William Castle were alive today, he'd know how to market "10,000 BC," the new epic -- I use the word loosely -- by Roland Emmerich: "No one will be admitted during the exciting woolly mammoth escape scene!" And watching the massive, oddly graceful beast scramble to escape the hunters who are hoping to capture it for their tribe's annual pancake breakfast is, I'll concede, exciting, at least for 30 seconds..."10,000 BC" would be much better if it allowed itself the freedom to be kitsch. A voice-over at the beginning -- coming from Omar Sharif, no less -- explains in fruity, educated tones how the Yagahl tribe, a simple, peace-loving people who kill only what they need to eat and have deep respect for the animals they consume, must wait and wait for the big herds of mammoths to come roaring through their landscape...There's a great deal of running around and spear chucking in "10,000 BC," as well as a mildly interesting scene in which D'Leh rescues, and charms, a saber-toothed tiger. But the picture, despite the grand panoramic scale Emmerich has tried to give it, is dopey and static. Its finest moments belong to the thundering herd of woolly mammoths who storm through the picture sometime in its first half-hour. With their spiraling tusks and scruffy, fun-fur flanks, they have an endearing, Snuffleupagus-like quality.
