Give it some time to sink in...then decide.

"First of all, if historical innaccuracies and a visionary tale that uses creative license to the max are not your style, then this is not the film for you. BUT......least we all be reminded that recently (within the last 10-15 years) many worldly discoveries have shaped or re-shaped many peoples ideas of the past. The idea that Atlantis is or was what we now know as Cuba. The oldest ruins actually carbon dated on earth are not found in Egypt, England, the Netherlands or even Iceland, but on the island of Malta. And there is still some debate about different types of ore being used for weapons long before iron was used, or better put KNOWN to be used. So if you can, or even want to, open your mind a little, and watch this story for what it is, a visionary tale that is not great by any means, but uses a lot of creative license and somewhat imaginitive story telling that crosses many boundries. I gave the movie a 4 star rating, because I took it for what it was, or what I thought it was meant to be, a story that was more fantasy than just fiction, more about imagination than accuracy. If you can do that, you might enjoy this film. As always, the best way is to judge for yourself. By the way, this movie looks great on Blu-Ray and a Plasma HDTV."
Its fiction and should be viewed as such. Not bad

"The movie is a lot better than i had though it would be, this is the same director that made 2012 and honestly i like this movie a lot better. Is it corny? Yes. Its in probably totally inaccurate in its portrayal of ancient man(if they existed) definitely. But it is one visually stunning and non boring movie to watch. There is never a dull moment as the son of a tribe hunter takes off in search of his girl friend who he was foretold to be so at the beginning. The best scenes are the hunting of the wully mammoths and the parts where the saber tooth tiger shows his face, after the young man saves him. Yes they speak broken English which if there were cave man i'm guessing they didn't have a language of there own. So its either make up a fake language with subtitles throughout or let them speak English, which i prefer instead. The story is flimsy but the journey is pretty exciting, also why the so called "four legged demon" people speak in a processed low electronic voice i have no clue, obviously because they think they aren't human. So yes its a decent movie that holds your attention, yet if you want something historically accurate your barking in the wrong cave, though if you want a fictional type journey like Lord Of The Rings this movie is just right for you."
Its worth 15 bucks

"Obviously its not the greatest movie even written, but c'mon! Did you really expect it to be!?! In Blu-ray this film looks amazing, the plot is a fun little fantasy that i really enjoy watching from time to time. I'm not expecting Oscar-worthy performances, but its by no means "Gigli" caliber acting either. Its just a fun movie with great cinematography. Again, its worth 15 bucks, or look at it this way. For the same price of this movie you can get your family dinner at a fast food restaurant. I'd rather buy this movie."
