10,000 B.C Brings In 35,700,000 A.D


Ok ok i know the pun sucks... [sic] but put it this way the movie looks great, and i must admit...i wanted to see it this weekend but i had previous arrangements. below are some of the meta scores, from what i see it got largely panned (getting a 35 out of a possible 100) but i want to see it anyway looks entertaining Billy may not agree....

Emmerich has no time for poetry or magic, even when the director and his digital wizards (here doing wildly variable work) are trying to dazzle. He’s a taskmaster and a field marshall, not a visionary. But I enjoyed 10,000 B.C. more and more, and more than just about anything Emmerich’s done before.

The Hollywood Reporter Kirk Honeycutt, 70/100
As one might expect, there are campy moments and far too much reliance on God-like interventions in the affairs of early man. Less expected is that 10,000 BC works just fine as an action Western with handsome actors in striking costumes and a few CG predators, which are giddy fun.

New York Post Lou Lumenick, 25/100
I was kind of rough on "Apocalypto," which in retrospect seems like a minor classic compared to 10,000 BC.

Slate Dana Stevens, 20/100
In terms of character development, wit, and simple curiosity, it's dumber than a Neanderthal.
