From director Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow) comes a sweeping odyssey into a mythical age of prophesies and gods, when spirits rule the land and mighty mammoths shake the earth--10,000 BC. In a remote mountain tribe, the young hunter D'Leh (Steven Strait--The Covenant) has found his heart's passion, the beautiful Evolet (Camilla Belle--When a Stranger Calls). But when mysterious warlords kidnap Evolet, D'Leh leads a small group of hunters to the end of the world to save her -- battling prehistoric predators, braving the harshest elements and learning their ultimate fate lies in an empire beyond imagination, where great pyramids reach into the skies. Here they will take their stand against a tyrannical god. And it is here that D'Leh finally comes to understand that he has been called to save not only Evolet but all of civilization.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: With attention strictly paid to style instead of substance, or historical accuracy, 10,000 B.C. is a visually impressive but narratively flimsy epic.
Time Out Chicago
All [Emmerich] cares about is not being boring. On that level, he succeeds.

Common Sense Says
Violent, poorly conceived prehistoric action.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this special effects-heavy action-adventure features lots of violent scenes that pit prehistoric tribesmen against large fierce animals and each other (sometimes in massive armies). Action scenes include hunts, chases, and fights; weapons include mallets, spears, nets, and huge knives (sometimes used to bloody effect). Several key characters are killed. There's also some minor cleavage and some questionable stereotyping.
