Thoughts on 10, 000 BC

Thoughts10,000 BC is an action adventure movie that will show one man looking to lead his tribe in a quest to save their own, only for them to discover he has the ability to bring others together against a common enemy. This is the typical rise up against a bigger threat, where each chapter will see a new lesson to make our hero a stronger leader. The fact this is set in the prehistoric era, gives us glimpse into the creature of this world, with them not being as big of a factor in everything going on, which would have made this a lot more entertaining to watch. This is an entertaining enough action adventure, but it does seem to lack a full connection to make it reach the promised potential.

Final Thoughts 10,000 BC is an easy to watch action adventure.
