Goofs

As the cavemen lead Kalaa across the bridge, she looks down and sees that the pit is full of shallow water and snakes. However, in subsequent shots of the entire cave, it's clear that the pit has a plain dirt floor; no snakes or water can be seen. See more »

Quotes

Yor: Where'd you get that medallion?
[Roa looks at Yor's medallion]
Yor: What does it mean?
Roa: They say I came here together with those men, there, caught in the ice. Why I am alive and they are dead I don't know, and why the ice has formed in this parched desert is a mystery without an answer, but the little water that comes from it is vital to these people and they worship me, as a divine goddess.

I love this film more than I love my family.
7 December 2003 | by daxdobbsSee all my reviews

"Yor: Hunter From the Future" is one of the most underrated films of the last nine thousand years. A key inspiration for such amazing works as "American Beauty" and "Hollywood Harry", this science fiction epic deserves to be rediscovered. The story follows a shy, and stupid blonde man who wanders through a prehistoric wasteland. As he encounters various villages and communities, he manages to destroy everything in his wake and ruin everyone's lives. The last thirty minutes are a revelation as our hero, his love interest, and some fat shirtless guy (who I still think is Orson Welles) are transported into space. There they fight a bunch of robots and shoot laser beams. Seriously, gang, if you want a film that will make you want to kill someone, then this is for you. Brilliant direction, acting, and writing all around. Best line: "DAMN TALKING BOX!!!!" Yor is played by an actor who never got his due in bad porn. The special effects blow Lord of the Rings out of the dork shelf at the rental store. You're going to love this movie so much you will want to slap yourself and hope that it isn't a dream.

Nine out of five stars.

Blurb: "Yor, more like Big Time!"
