    Call it "Apocalypto" for pussies -- a PG-13 rating, puh-leese! -- or prehistory for peabrains. Just don’t call it friendo. 10,000 B.C. will take your money, rob your time and hit your brain like a shot of Novacaine. show more

    Completely ridiculous, but fun to look at. show more

    Within a few minutes into the ponderous prehistoric pseudo-epic that is 10,000 B.C., you find yourself longing for George of the Jungle to crash into a tree or the Geico cavemen to amble up and put an end to the droning seriousness of this tedious tale. show more

    Tedious, ludicrous and harmless glimpse of the dawn of civilization. show more

    10,000 B.C. tries, but never catches fire. show more

    As one might expect, there are campy moments and far too much reliance on God-like interventions in the affairs of early man. Less expected is that 10,000 BC works just fine as an action Western with handsome actors in striking costumes and a few CG predators, which are giddy fun. show more

    Emmerich has no time for poetry or magic, even when the director and his digital wizards (here doing wildly variable work) are trying to dazzle. He’s a taskmaster and a field marshall, not a visionary. But I enjoyed 10,000 B.C. more and more, and more than just about anything Emmerich’s done before. show more

    Too dumb to take seriously, but just silly enough to be sort of fun. show more

    Essentially a rip-off of "Apocalypto" for audience members too young or squeamish to endure graphic human sacrifice and jaguar face-eating. show more

    One doesn't expect intelligent scripting or deep characterization from Roland Emmerich, but the film's lack of energy, poor special effects, and monotonous pacing lead to an inescapable conclusion: 10,000 B.C. isn't only brain-dead, it's COMPLETELY dead. It's inert and without a heartbeat. show more

    It's a movie. For me, it was nice escape from the reality of the problem that we face everyday when I watch movies. This was every entertaining. Interesting story. I'm not saying it was worthy of an Oscar. It had my attention throughout and that is all I asked for. Better than some of the junk on TV - starting with news.
