"is the ultimate eye-candy with its extravagant CGI, vast sets, detailed costumes, and sweeping cinematography"
Although the storyline is predictable, it is presented in a way that you will be contented about how the story came together. 10,000 B.C. is the ultimate eye-candy with its extravagant CGI, vast sets, detailed costumes, and sweeping cinematography. The acting is average, but watchable. The script is basic but it works because you wouldn't expect our prehistoric ancestors to break out in eloquent or snappy dialogue.
You should watch this film not as an Oscars judge but a filmgoer who wants to escape from the disillusionments of life. When you watch it, don't think too hard, just 'listen' to the story and marvel at the cinematography. Yes, it is just like a fairy tale. And like a child, be innocent, be fascinated, and then you can say that you've been truly entertained. 10,000 B.C. is pure exhilarating entertainment, and does what a film should - lets you escape back to a world lost in time!
