Worst of all, no one even gets eaten by the disappointingly tame saber-toothed tiger.

In fact, while sitting through this banal attempt at a big-scale epic, I could not help but go through a checklist in my mind of all the movies "10,000 B.C." borrows from.

Where's Raquel Welch in that fur bikini?

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.

10,000 B.C. isn't only brain-dead, it's completely dead. It's inert and without a heartbeat.

If you are ten years old fan of video games with a short attention span and no knowledge of history, you will love this movie. The further you stray from these core qualifications, the less you will love it.

A lovely-to-look-at but ultimately forgettable adventure flick that feels like a cross between Land of the Pharaohs and the greatest hits of Joseph Campbell.

While there are moments, '10,000 B.C.' never makes you jump. On the plus side, the movie isn't as lumbering as those digital elephantine beasts.

I can't figure out exactly when the film 10,000 B.C. is set, but it's definitely ancient times. Like before they had cars, guns or tabloid blogs. And definitely before they had cohesive plots or dialogue that made sense.

Brace yourself for a mammoth disappointment.

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

In an age where ... audiences reward blood-and-thunder films ... at the box office, greenlighting 10,000 B.C. must have seemed logical. I can imagine someone pitching the film ...by saying "It's like 300 .... plus 9,700!"

The mammoths are cool. The squealing killer ostriches, perhaps inspired by ancient phorusrhacid fossils, are idiotic but... okay, they're idiotic.

An atrocious waste of a perfectly good CGI budget ... at least the Geico commercials make an effort to get the historical accuracy right

It's a horrible movie.

10,000 B.C. is a movie of woolly mammoths and fuzzy thinking.

10,000 B.C. takes a prehistoric approach to storytelling.

Roland Emmerich is partial to cutting-edge special effects and stone-age storytelling, meaning that 10,000 B.C., a dim-witted CG extravaganza set in prehistoric times, is something like his ideal project.

It's just a wrong movie altogether, an elaborately nonsensical stew of crazy costumes, bizarre accessories, and funny voices.

Visually, historically and creatively, this film dishonors the year 10,000 B.C.
