Stone Age Warriors is a diverting jungle film from Hong Kong with a couple of pretty actresses, an action packed climax, and real Komodo dragons.
The plot has two women traveling from Hong Kong to an Eastern jungle in search of a missing man. One woman (Elaine Liu) is the man's daughter and the other (Nina Li Chi) is an insurance representative who is pretending to be pregnant with the missing man's child. They are helped by a missionary with expert martial arts skills (he is played by Siu-Wong Fan from The Story of Ricky). The group has to face a tribal war over a pig, drug dealers, deadly natives, and komodo dragons. These komodo dragons were a highlight. In typical Hong Kong fashion, real reptiles were used near uncomfortable looking actors (viewers should watch the outtakes over the end credits).
The first half of Stone Age Warriors feels slow. It also features a fair amount of unsubtle Hong Kong humor (like a native having to wear a large pink hat over his privates). The film comes alive in the second half when the girls encounter the drug dealers led by a viscous fighting female. The action is strong in this second half, making up for the slow beginning.
Stone Age Warriors is not a great film. In fact, it is just slight entertainment, but it does, at least in the second half, entertain. One could do worse on a lazy afternoon.
