Our story is set during the prehistoric days when cavemen and dinosaurs are still running wild. A mysterious blonde man named Yor (Reb Brown) winds up in this era and soon falls in love with a woman (Corinne Clery) after protecting her father (Luciano Pigozzi) from a dinosaur attack. Soon Yor begins to question where he comes from.
YOR, THE HUNTER FROM THE FUTURE comes from director Antonio Margheriti who made numerous films that are still enjoyed today including CASTLE FO BLOOD, ALIEN FROM THE DEEP, CANNIBAL AOOCALYPSE and THE LONG HAIR OF DEATH among others. This film has gained the reputation of being one of the most entertaining bad movies ever made and I think it really lives up to its reputation.
There's no question that this is a bad movie because of some really embarrassing performances as well as some really bad special effects but at the same time you have to take your hat off towards its director because it seems he was smart enough to know they didn't have the money to pull this off so he made it as entertaining as he could. This means pretty much throw everything out there and hope something sticks and sure enough it does!
There are some really fun moments here and especially the various dinosaur attacks. The dinosaurs look incredibly fake but the film pushes its PG-rating with some gory death scenes and the opening fight between Yor and the dinosaur was classic. There are some more good battles throughout the film that are highly entertaining as well. Then you've got the cavemen and their apperances, which is another major plus.
One shouldn't go to YOR, THE HUNTER OF THE FUTURE and expect some Kubrick film. The film is a very low-budget action movie that works well because of how campy it is and it's certainly worth watching.
