A look into our past
27 January 2006 | by (Quebec City.Canada) – See all my reviews

This is not your usual movie. First off there is no dialogue, only a Narator (who does a great job). This film is made as if a national geographic team had travel back 1000 000 years in time and made a documentary on the last ape-man, one of our many ancestors. I found it more then entertaining, you will actually learn somethings in this movie. The "Star" 's make-up is just awesome and unique as far as i can remember the few films that tackled the prehistoric genre. So If you like anthropology, or are just curious about Man's past and struggles you will love this one. It's scary/funny/tragic/sad... lifelike. and the "Bad Guy" in this movie is YOU and ME - Homo Sapiens. In the line of "Quest for Fire", but even more real.
