2.0 out of 5 stars Boring Dec 12 2008
Format:DVD
When marauders on horseback raid a peaceful mountain village in 10,000 BC, a young hunter named D'Leh (Steven Strait) travels to the ends of the earth to rescue the kidnapped members of his clan, including his azure-eyed love Evolet (Camilla Belle). Along the way, he encounters a variety of exotic (primarily African-looking) tribes, and battles creatures including woolly mammoths, a sabre-toothed tiger, and a flock of phorusrhacids (carnivorous terror birds). In the end, he must take a stand against a powerful empire and lead his people from enslavement.

Director Roland Emmerich, known for special effects extravaganzas (Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow), tries hard to create an epic adventure, but seems to have lost interest along the way. Each sequence promises to deliver a grand spectacle, but then culminates in a feeble and hurried resolution. Even the climactic battle disappoints with its myriad of missed opportunities.

Emmerich's screenplay, co-written by Harald Kloser in a departure from his usual role as composer, is a complete bastardization of history. The biblical parallels to Moses and the Exodus are admirable, but a clichéd subplot about D'Leh's long-lost father and narration by Omar Sharif merely complicate the story. Further, the script fails to explore the intriguing concept of an untamed world on the verge of civilization. In fact, the protagonists' values are so 20th-century, it seems they have little to embrace but the invention of the iPod. Sprinkling the script with a hint of mysticism and prophecy does little to remove the proceedings from contemporary life.

Yet, to convince an audience that the members of the Yagahl tribe existed long ago, the actors speak in a variety of bewildering accents ranging from Slavic to Jamaican.

L'expédition s'est faite conformément à mes attentes. Cependant, ce n'est pas un film que j'ai vraiment aimé.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another frisbee! Feb. 2 2010
Format:DVD
This movie was so stupid I find it difficult even to think about it. Again a movie with potential that resulted in a huge disappointment. The only memorable scenes, for me, were those close-ups of Camilla Belle, a hot prehistoric babe! The rest of the movie was just mental! Watched it once, but never again!

3.0 out of 5 stars great bonus disc, flawed film Nov. 28 2009
By Cheryl TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
There is a great bonus disc included in this limited edition, National Geographic's Prehistoric Predators Sabertooth (approx. 45min.), which makes the set worth owning. The film itself is flawed which is disappointing given that some aspects of it are so good. To see recognizable 'Hollywood' faces with perfect teeth and shaped eyebrows in 10000BC is distracting and takes one immediately from an otherwise engaging story. I love the setting, photography, and for the most part the scenery. There are some wonderful special effects, but at least one location looked like the production lacked effort, or financing (where rippled water in the background remained motionless). If you can get past these points you might like the film. I could, but it took some effort.

Well, this is a fantasy prehistoric film, loved the scenaries, the actors, the legend story, much was said about it, the people who gave it a negative reviews are watching the wrong movie, it is not the discovery channel to analyze the historic facts, it's a hollywood fantasy movie and that was its intention, very enjoyable and I liked the ending, enjoyed every minute of it.
