The film's original title was 'Prehistoric'. It was changed to capitalize on the film 10,000 BC (2008). See more »


The very title of this film is wrong. The "100 Million BC" isn't actually mentioned in the movie but instead they say they go something like between 60 and 80 million years back in time. See more »

User Reviews

I felt embarrassed for the Actors and Animators while watching this movie.
24 September 2011 | by woodhousebuttlerSee all my reviews

The Animations/special effects were very bad, I would say just lazy more so than an issue of budget. Very low quality and unfinished effects. There is even one Green scene shot where your view is behind the cast and they are looking at a Dinosaur running from right to left. You can see the editors did not even match up where the actors are looking to the creature added in that they are supposed to be looking at, Thats Just lazy.

As for the acting, Have you ever been to a show and seen someone try to perform but do very badly and you feel embarrassed just watching it? That is how I felt during most of the character scenes during this movie, bad acting, the actors come off awkward trying to pull off the scenes.

Often the actor is supposed to be happy or excited but they do not pull it off, Its like when someone does a fake smile and it is obvious it is a fake smile because the rest of the face does not match the emotion that the mouth is making? This is true in this film for most emotions from most of the actors, They either do not pull it off or over do it.

The bad acting and lazy CGI work keep pulling you out of the story, You can not get into the movie because you keep thinking wow that looks so fake, or wow, that was bad acting.
