Did You Know?


It is very much possible that the creators of the movie may have wanted more character development in the marines. Evidence of this is seen in the deleted scene of showing what the marines did the night before the time jump, such as Burke talking in his phone seemingly about family issues by the way he makes stressful gestures with his hands, while Jones and Manriquez play a game of cards ending with Jones saying a vulgar remark about Manriquez's mother. Since the movie was partially rushed due to a deadline, most of the marines ended up with little to no character development and are often cited as the most bland characters in the movie, with Reno and the old research team being the only ones with character. Despite all this, they are some of the most important characters in the first half of the movie. See more »


There are numerous instances where characters "fire" guns and no muzzle flash is ever seen; only the "gun shot" sound is heard. Also empty ammo cartridges are never seen being ejected from any automatic weapons. See more »

100 million BC - the BC stands for bitchin' crap.
27 January 2011 | by froberts73See all my reviews

I, too, got sucked into buying this at Wal-Mart because of the cover art - the misleading cover art.

I watched the other flick, "Journey To the Center Of the Earth" first and thought it was putrid. Well, it was, but "100 Million BC" was even (new word) putrider. I can only conclude that everyone involved during the couple of days it took to put this s--t together were drunk.

As for Michael Gross, well, oh how the mighty have fallen. As for everyone else, may they fall off the face of the earth. The jokers who were advertised as "an elite military team" were scary. In spite of the pseudo-intellectual ranting they were thoroughly unconvincing as their characters and as actors.

Well, maybe, it was played for laughs, but it was neither humorous or even mildly interesting. Being a sadist I sat through the whole thing with the feeling that it had to get better.

It got worse. CRAP with a capital K. If you spot this in the Wal-Mart bin take it out and, as a public service, stomp on the damn thing so no one else will be taken in.

One hundred million zeroes for "100 Million BC."
