Great music, great satire, kewl animation!
20 August 2001 | by (Herndon, VA) – See all my reviews

The soundtrack contains a few tracks from Leo Sayer and singles from the likes of Genesis and REO Speedwagon. The characters are amazing: Stewey Babcock (the first Man), Bone his buddy (a dinosaur) and Slick (a pterodactyl?) are the main characters. They have some amazing adventures, great comedy, satire as well as social commentary.

I didn't recognize many names in the credits, but the voice work was outstanding as well.

If anyone knows where a copy of this can be had, please email me as soon as possible!

I've been looking for a good copy of this for the last 10 years or so - no luck to date.

(Orig: 8-20-2001 Updated:1/26/08) I've almost been looking for 20 years now! Wow!

This review and most of the others as of this date refer to the English release titled "B.C. Rock", not the original French(?) version which now appears to be for sale on DVD and to which my original movie submission and review have been subsequently merged.

Based on reviews, the soundtrack and dialog are all different. I'd look for the English title of "B.C. Rock." Outside of the animation itself, it is not clear from the reviews that the original movie is related to "B.C. Rock" at all.
