Magical Movie Moments - 10,000 B.C.  

Posted by Linda Keilbart Scanlan in , ,

In researching comments and facts about this movie, I found several negative comments. It would appear as if the majority of comment posters thought this movie was a waste of money.

10,000 BC is " A prehistoric epic that follows a young mammoth hunter's journey through uncharted territory to secure the future of his tribe." ( Most of the negative comments center around inaccuracies in the plot. Time line seems to be a favorite with the building of the pyramids.

A movie is a movie is a movie. It is usually fictional which means anything goes. Okay, for movie buffs some of the things have to line up, like time lines. A writers interpretation on a fictional film does not always have to be accurate. To the critics, I would have said "Sit back and enjoy the film as it was written." My children, including the girls, thought the movie was great! I have been informed that now that it is out, it must be a part of our home movie collection.

The computer generated images in this movie were great and realistic. Backgrounds were rich and believable. The story line gives us our first hero. D'Leh is intent on saving his tribe. He is after the Mammoth, so when caught in a pit with a sabertooth, whom he chooses not to kill, D'Leh warns, "Do not eat me when I save your life!" (

There are cute and clever lines which lighten the atmosphere of this movie. The movie is narrated by Omar Sharif who is better known for his roles in Lawrence of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago.

This movie is rated PG-13 for intense action and violence. Sit back, relax and enjoy this film, without picking apart the time line!!!
