Storyline

A prehistoric epic that follows a young mammoth hunter named D'Leh's journey through uncharted territory to secure the future of his tribe. When a band of mysterious horse-riding warlords raid the Yaghal camp and kidnaps his heart's desire - the beautiful Evolet along with many others, D'Leh is forced to lead a small group of hunters south to pursue the warlords to the end of the world to save her. Driven by destiny, the unlikely band of warriors must battle saber-toothed cats and terror birds in the Levant. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

D'Leh is "Held", the German word for "hero", backwards. Roland Emmerich chose the name as an Easter egg. See more »

Goofs

The tribes sleep barely clothed in the desert during the night. Temperature differences in the desert vary enormously between day and night because the heat cannot be held in. See more »

Not "Harryhausen" or "Stargate"…But it Tries
14 September 2016 | by LeonLouisRicciSee all my reviews

Why put a Date on the Thing. Any Date. From the Beginning there are going to be Nit-Pickers and Truth Tellers, History Buffs, and Scholarly Types, that feel the Need, no Obligation, to Weigh-In and "Educate" the Public on the "way it was' (our best guess only).

Add to that, the Utterly Braindead, Corny, Irritating Interruption of an all too Serious Narrator that Stops the Show all too Often. In Fact, the Movie Overall takes itself all too Seriously, all the Time.

The Movie has its Moments and the Spectacle is Artistically Appealing. The Story is Pure "Hero's Journey", and it is Touching with its Romance and Tribal Sprawl. Also, the Message of a Coming-Together to Fight an Evil Foe is a Noble One.

But the Film as a whole is Burdened by some of those Very Weak Drawbacks. The Movie gets Progressively Better as it Unfolds with Act Two in the Jungle almost a "Harryhausen' Homage, and Act Three is the best with an almost "Stargate" like Setting.

This Never approaches Harryhausen in its Artistry or Stargate in its Ancient Astronaut Wonder, but the Film is at its Best when it Tries.
