Movie Review: 10, 000 B.C.  

Posted by: ~ames~ in , , , ,


Movie Description from Yahoo! Movies:
In a remote mountain tribe, the young hunter, D'Leh, has found his heart's passion - the beautiful Evolet. When a band of mysterious warlords raid his village and kidnap Evolet, D'Leh is forced to lead a small group of hunters to pursue the warlords to the end of the world to save her. Driven by destiny, the unlikely band of warriors must battle saber-tooth tigers and prehistoric predators and, at their heroic journey's end, they uncover a Lost Civilization. Their ultimate fate lies in an empire beyond imagination, where great pyramids reach into the skies. Here they will take their stand against a powerful god who has brutally enslaved their people.
Ames: Rowena and I saw this when I came down to LA last week. I know we had differing views of the movie, so let’s start!

10, 000 BC is about a band of mammoth hunters who have been struck by tragedy. Every year, the mammoth are fewer and fewer and one year, a band of 4-legged demons (men on horseback) strike and kidnap and kill some of the village. One of those kidnapped was blue eyed Evolet, the love of D’Leh.

I liked the movie. Although the beginning had an extremely corny scene, the rest of the movie panned out well. Plenty of action and adventure. But what really appealed to me was all the prophecy-talk. I love that shizz! LOL You?

Rowena: I enjoyed the movie but not nearly as much as Tiffany (my brother's gf) and Ames did. The best part of the movie for me was Steven Strait. That man is just off the chains hot and I can't wait to feature him on Book Binge as a Cast That Hero, haha. I enjoyed the spirit talk lady, the way she would dance when she got a vision cracked me on the inside but man, the more the movie went on, the more cheesy it got.

Ames: Well that's what happens with prophecy stuff. LOL And yeah, your man Steven Strait was hot. I also liked his uncle? The guy who was carrying the white stick. Whatever, the more excuses for men to run around in loin cloths the better. Haha

Rowena: I enjoyed the movie because Steven spent the entire movie being all buff and yummalicious and the storyline was pretty good, it was just the ending that made me want to poke my eyes out because oh the cheese factor! It was so lame. I just thought the first ending was sufficient enough because it would have been damn, all that and then that happens..just all that cheesiness at the end was enough to make me roll my eyes down the block.

Ames: Ok seriously, I liked how it brought the different people together. The mammoth hunters...the tribesmen of Africa and the slaves of the evil pyramid builders. And dude, wtf was up with that creepy tall thing with the long ass finger nails? *shudder* Kind of reminded me of Stargate. LOL

One thing, the ending was kind of abrupt. Know what I mean? Like boom, D'Leh does this and then that happens and tada, the end. Don't you agree? And what would you grade it?

Rowena: I would give this movie a C, I don't have it in me to give the movie anything lower than that because I'm shallow enough to admit that watching Steven Strait in a loin cloth for two hours is quite entertaining all by itself, LOL. And plus, it WAS cool that he did all that he did with bringing all the different people together and stuff out of love for homegirl. I thought that was sweet, like dude my man brought down an army to get me back, now THATS LOVE!

Ames: I'm going to give it a C+ for the storyline and a B for the cinematography and graphics.
