The “from the director of Independence Day” banner convinced me to see 10,000 bc. I was neither dismayed nor overwhelmed with the flick. I was charmed by Evolet’s beauty.
10,000 bc was the odyssey of D’leh’s pursue to get Evolet back. His lady-love was kidnapped by harsh warlords and this notorious gang was heading towards the end of the world. Embarking on into unknown lands with only three companions, D’leh ended up forming an army to save not only Evolet but a whole civilization.
Along D’leh’s journey came a number of obstacles purposely arranged to shape the leader in him. In the age of prophesies and gods, his group survived the threatening stature of prehistoric predators and mighty mammoths. He had befriended a spear-tooth animal advancing him to gain many tribes’ respect. He had easily defeated a tyrannical human leader. And together with his new formed battalion, he saved the slaves forced to build great pyramids that almost reach the sky.
Again, the movie neither saddened nor delighted me. Solely Evolet’s exquisiteness enthralled my being.
