- 1 hr 49 min
In 10,000 BC, a young hunter named D'Leh (Steven Strait) from a small tribe called the Yagahl sets out on a mission to rescue his girlfriend, Evolet (Camilla Belle) from a mysterious tribe known as the Warlords. Along the way, he joins forces with a group of other tribes and together they travel through hostile territories and encounter various prehistoric creatures. The movie is set in a time when mammoths still roamed the Earth and primitive humans still relied on stone tools and animal hides for survival. D'Leh's tribe, the Yagahl, is one of many small tribes that live in the surrounding wilderness, hunting to survive and engaging in inter-tribal warfare. One day, a group of Warlords attacks the Yagahl village, kidnapping Evolet and several other villagers. D'Leh, who was away on a hunt at the time, arrives back to find his tribe devastated and his beloved Evolet gone. Despite protests from his elders, D'Leh sets out on a quest to rescue her, determined to go to the ends of the Earth if necessary. Along the way, he meets up with other tribes, including the fierce horse-riding Nakudu (Joel Virgel) and the more advanced and organized Egyptians (led by Marco Khan). Together, they form an unlikely alliance and face off against various challenges, including a deadly sabretooth tiger, a treacherous snowy mountain pass, and a marauding army of slave traders. Throughout the movie, D'Leh's character evolves from a hot-headed young hunter to a stoic and confident leader. Along the way, he learns more about the world beyond his own tribe and develops a deep respect for the different cultures and peoples he encounters. The special effects in 10,000 BC are generally well-done, with convincing CGI beasts and epic landscapes. The action scenes are exciting and visceral, with plenty of heart-stopping moments to keep the audience engaged. Overall, 10,000 BC is a fun, escapist adventure movie that of course plays fast and loose with historical accuracy. It's the kind of movie that's better watched with a group of friends, some popcorn, and a willingness to suspend disbelief. It may not be high art, but it's definitely an enjoyable ride.
