I enjoyed the movie, so it qualifies as a mammoth guilty pleasure

strictly a popcorn flick version of Joseph Campell's hero's journey that looks great even as it plays fast and very loose with geography, biology, and anything else that gets in its way

Roland Emmerich's prehistoric odyssey 10,000 BC is his silliest, most preposterous blockbuster to date. But it's lots of fun, too.

Take the kids along; unless you want them to grow up to be palaeontologists.

The mammoths aren't all that is wild and woolly in this innocent, old-fashioned, amusingly self-important, entertainingly mad, rip-snorting throwback to vintage Saturday matinee fare.

Too dumb to take seriously, but just silly enough to be sort of fun.

Outrageous and outlandish, Emmerich's 10,000 BC is easy to mock, but it is so cheerfully shameless and terminally silly that you have to admire its effrontery and accept its creator... as a certified crackpot visionary.

CGI effects are letter perfect believable. The opening mastodon hunt/stampede is as good as effects seen in the recent 'King Kong,' greatly enhancing the film.

The little-prehistoric-epic-that-could actually delivers an entertaining couple of hours.

Digital imagery imagines a striking prehistoric world for these back-to-basics heroes, villains and raging beasts.

Sometimes you have a hankering for a slab of 10,000-year-old cheese. Here it is, on a cracker.

A lousier adventure movie you won't find this year: 10,000 B.C. belongs, if not back in the stone age, then at least back in the mid '90s, where this sort of mindless, effects-driven drivel is best left.

All [Emmerich] cares about is not being boring. On that level, he succeeds.

One of the biggest problems with the film is the casting.

Some backgrounds look as though Roland Emmerich and crew broke into a museum after hours and filmed in dioramas. Rather than a disaster film, this was just plain disaster - a departure from Emmerich's usually effective milieu and his most moronic movie.

Violent, poorly conceived prehistoric action.

Heavy on moronic mysticism and light on imagination, excitement, and shot-to-shot coherence

10,000 BC takes film making back to the stone age...
