: 10,000 Years B.C.
Flashy special effects are at the heart of this film and though the story tries (too) hard to be “important” it’s way too generic and the “deep” aspects of the film just come across as silly. That said, it’s not that bad a film. The story is simple: a tribe is attacked and their people taken captive, including a girl who is the main character’s bride-to-be, so he sets out after them to rescue her. He has adventures along the way, there’s action and drama, bla bla bla, he makes friends who help him overthrow the evil emperor, horray for everyone. There’s a degree of “mystical” nonsense that plagues the film and that weakens the ending which goes a bit into weird territory with a death that makes no sense, but overall this is a fun film, the special effects are genuinely impressive and worth seeing just for them.
