Entirely spectacularly rivetting depiction of filmmaking gone awry
11 August 2000 | by James-DurhamSee all my reviews

This movie is a stirring epic set amongst the backdrop of the transitional period between the advent of the cro-magnons and the extinction of the neanderthals. The polar opposition between the two races is clearly shown, especially when the neanderthals attack by simply throwing rocks and the cro-magnons finish them off with their newly invented lightsabres.

Cro magnons were the intelligent ones remember

You see this movie is so rivetting simply because it sucked so much

That Ela guy is beefed up on some anabolic substance and when Eastman finds a large chunk of iron (what was he doing at the volcano anyway?) and with that piece, they invent a way to melt it, cast it, then fashion it into broadswords, which they then use to hack and slash their way through every tribe for no reason

A vey bad movie
