Amal: What did your elders teach you about the disease?
Dorel: That god created it as punishment for man's sins. The old world was full of greed and men created machines that got out of control and they meddled with nature, and only god could stop them.
Amal: Men were trying to perfect their own design. They found a way to bring extinct animals back to life, like the mammoth and the sloth that you hunt. The science also brought us the disease. It wasn't long before the whole world was infected.

User Reviews

Better than expected TV action adventure fantasy.
2 August 2018 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

The film has impressive visuals for a TV movie, and I enjoyed the subtle use of music during some scenes as opposed to the overbearing music Hollywood blockbusters love so much. It made me focus more on what was actually happening. The casting was also relatively good. (I must be honest, though, I did find Sean Bean's character, Amal, a bit unexplored).

The film does borrow heavily from 'The Time Machine' with regards to plot (to a certain extent) and make-up, and especially the way some of the beasts move. Some of the explanations on their knowledge of the past will have you raise an eyebrow, but lets just overlook that and enjoy this fantasy action adventure for its intended purpose: to entertain. And entertain it certainly does. The film features some great sets and locations, and the cinematography was very good, as well.

There's plenty of action and adventure here, and there were even some very effective, unexpected scares! Although I might not watch it again in a hurry, it was well worth the watch.
