10,000 B.C.

Well it has Mammoth's, Sabre Tooth Tigers, and a sloth for a script, but it's not Ice Age III, it's 10k BC. I thought the costumes were fabulous and the sets were epic. The story and plot were a little weak but over all it was a fun film. There were some intense scenes.

Director Roland Emmerich ("Independence Day," "The Day After Tomorrow") brings us an tall tale about an age old story. Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy chases girl, boy get girl!

In a remote mountain tribe, a young hunter named D'Leh (Steven Strait) has found his heart's passion - the beautiful Evolet (Camilla Belle). But when a band of slavers raid his village and kidnap Evolet. D'Leh leads a small group of hunters to pursue the evil men through jungles and across deserts. As they venture out to strange lands for the first time, the group finds there are other tribes that have suffered a similar fate as their own. So they join forces.

They brave the elements and man eating dodo birds (this was so stolen from Ice Age!) to follow Evolet to the end of the Earth by following a star in the sky. At their heroic journey's end, they uncover a massive civilization that worships a god. Here they make a stand against the tyrannical god who has brutally enslaved their own.
The film was fun, but I'd try and catch a matinee. Check out 10,000 BC!
