R.F.D. 10,000 B.C. (1916)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Edison short runs just under five minutes and doesn't really contain that much of a plot. A caveman, using a dinosaur to pull his wagon, delivers the mail while trying to get back to his girlfriend. Both The Dinosaur and the Missing Link as well as The Ghost of Slumber Mountain contain more of a story but this short still remains entertaining due to the special effects from O'Brien. There's really not too much action in this film but we get a lot of scenes with the dinosaur, which looks pretty good in its claymation form. There are three cave people here and they too look quite nice. This film might seem old or generic when looked at with today's eyes but the special effects, for their time, are very impressive and that will be the main reason for people tracking this film down. O'Brien would certainly go onto bigger and better things but his early work still manages to impress.
