An engaging prehistoric yarn that happily never degenerates into a club and lion skin spinoff of Star Wars and resolutely refuses to bludgeon the viewer with facile or gratuitous effects.

Quest for Fire boldly states its claims to dance along the abyss of the ridiculous.

These characters and their quest began to grow on me, and by the time the movie was over I cared very much about how their lives would turn out.

''Quest for Fire'' is more than just a hugely enterprising science lesson, although it certainly is that. It's also a touching, funny and suspenseful drama about prehumans.
