10000 BC is poor man’s Apocalypto

I just saw 10000 BC and was glad to see that it wasn’t as bad as I heard. But I couldn’t help but think the movie is just like Apocalypto… but a more sanitized, and less passionate version of it. There was even an unintentional homage to 300 (the movie), with the final spear throwing. hmm… talk about hollywood originality! :)

Still that doesn’t mean that 10000 BC has nothing. I liked the anochronistic slave-pyramid scenes… and also the movie kept making me want to see “how” things would pan out, even though I knew exactly what would eventually happen!

So a decent pop-movie I guess. Worth a simplistic watch! :)

    I completely disagree. This is not worth a watch.

    Apocalypto was so much better than 10,000 B.C. that with the former in existence, taking the time to watch the latter would be an utter waste of time.

    The acting was… I won’t even go there.
    The accents were.. insulting?
    The CG was… mediocre.
    The premise/plot was a complete sack of anal refuse compared to Apoc.

    It’s likely this movie was made as a quick ditch effort to minimalize Mel Gibson’s amazing thriller.

    Apocalypto has a cult following now. While 10,000 B.C.’s gross-estimates probably intentionally fail to factor in losses due to people asking for their money back. I asked for mine. And I got it. The ticker seller gave me quite a knowing glance as he handed it to me as well.
