Okay, so there are worse movies out there. And if you can round up a couple of smart-alecky, quick-witted friends and sneak in a case of beer, you might have some fun. But that's not much consolation when the movie in question leaves you feeling embarrassed for the people in it, is it? Which brings us to 10,000 B.C., Roland Emmerich's latest.    I'm sure anyone reading this already knows how the story goes. The story, in a nutshell, plays out like this: this dude named D'Leh …

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):     1. People in 10,000 BC looked just like us, except dirtier - and some even copied hairstyles from American Idol's Jason Castro.   2. Ughh! Grunt!! No, wait a minute, these folk speak in complete sentences. My bad.   3. Where there's a tribe there's a prophecy   4. Welcome to the annual "Hunting of the Mammoth" shindig and hoedown   5. Forget T-Rex - the biggest threat to prehistoric people were the …

This movie is about a tribe of people living somewhere in the Eurasian landmass. One day during winter, an adopted girl in their tribe is carried of by horsemen. Three men (Ka'ren, D'leh, Tic-Tic) and one boy of the tribe follow them all the way to North Africa where they come across a pyramid being built by slave labor. D'leh leads an uprising which frees the slaves and free the girl. So that is the entire storyline. Along the way the meet and befriend other tribes, and encounter various beasts. …

10,000 B.C. follows the character of D'Leh (Steven Strait), a member of a mountain-living tribe that makes their living from hunting mastodons. D'Leh's father was the tribe's chief, but left the tribe and abandoned his family many years ago because of a prophecy. D'Leh becomes an outcast. Years later, because of his skills as a hunter and his sacrificial nature, D'Leh becomes a leader in his tribe. The tribe is attacked by a group of warrior horsemen who take many captives, including the beautiful …

Steven Strait dons animal skins and sets out to save the prophesied "child with blue eyes" (who happens to be his love interest) in Roland Emmerich's "10,000 B.C."     While it's enjoyable enough to watch, "B.C." just doesn't feel like the grand epic it should be. It has all the necessary ingredients to be an epic: an unlikely hero, a beautiful damsel (and tribe) in distress, a menacing enemy with seemingly supernatural powers, an angry god/ruler and gigantic roadblocks for the …

My lasting impression of `10,000 B.C`. is how good of a movie it really is. Not great, mind you, but I was impressed at the quality and the quantity of the action scenes. Never were there wooly mammoth sized pauses or unnecessary delays in the story or action. (Thanks to 'Independence Day' director Roland Emmerich and editor Alexander Berner.) Visually, the action is well framed and expertly shot. They may have taken liberties with history, but we're not really supposed to care. Giant ostriches …

Admittedly looking at the basis of the story and the historical inaccuracy of it all you could be put off right away from this film, as it appears to be a typical Roland Emmerich piece of over the top CGI and not enough depth. Let me be honest when I tell you that it is what it may have appeared, it is the typical Emmerich piece and it lacks serious depth and contains some terrible acting along with ridiculous dialogue. At times the CGI simply doesn't blend into what's actually taking place, during …
