Jackson's convincing portrayal of an untethered psyche scrambling for purchase on the slippery slope of sanity and Lemmons's arresting cinematic vision, in which we see the world through the eyes of a man continually descending into ...madness, is enough.

What saves the movie from mediocrity is its visual style.

The plot lines that follow are so convoluted and ludicrous that one just gives up piecing it all together.

Watching the film, it's easy to imagine how a novel might make the unlikely plot machinations less ludicrous.

Dramatically speaking, The Caveman's Valentine is a dead end.

Loaded down with laughable caricatures and a plot as confused as its protagonist.

There is pleasure in giving oneself up to the gusty swirls of the film's imagery, and especially to the handsome grandeur of its star.

A work whose visual assurance is undercut by a script that's sometimes as ludicrous as it is ambitious.

The Caveman has lapses of logic, but fewer than you will find in George Dawes Green's improbable script.

Hovers somewhere in that never-never land of movies that try to do too much and don't quite live up to any of their ambitions.

Jackson is so frighteningly effective, and affecting, as Romulus that you're sucked in.

Highly uneven, too often defying credibility, especially in its reliance on coincidence, and too often it slips way over the top.

It's remarkable the way Jackson begins with the kind of character we'd avert our eyes from, and makes him fascinating and even likable.
