Since we are there already, might as well choose something else to watch. We went through the screening times... haha.. you guessed it. We actually selected the movie to watch based on the most convenient screening time, and not the show it self. There was Spiderwick Chronicles (but tickets were all sold out except for the 11:55pm show, an it was only 9:10pm..sigh..), Ah Long Pte Ltd (9:20pm but it is in Hokkien....mmm), Horton Hears a Who (9:20pm), Minotaur (9:20am but the ticketing guy told us that his friends saw it and definitely do not recommend it...SIGH!)...so, never mind, the people in the queue is already throwing dagger stares at us...decided to take a chance on 10,000BC.
It turned out pretty interesting, at least for me. The critics (extract from Wikipedia) were reportedly to have given this movie terrible reviews. Rotten Tomatoes has reported that 9% of critics gave the film positive reviews, based on 83 reviews. Metacritic reported the film had an average score of 37 out of 100, based on 25 reviews .
Main lead -Steven Strait as D'Leh, a mammoth hunter.
Main Lead - Camilla Belle as Evolet, D'Leh's love and the survivor of a different tribe that was killed by the "four legged demons". While kidnapped, her hand was whipped, forming a scar in the shape of the "hunter"
The photos were obtained from The Internet Movie Database site.
At least the scenery shots must have been its saving grace ... the barren land, the thick snow caps, the lush tropical forest and the never ending desert. Actually, not bad lah.. I would have given it a 7 1/2 out of 10.

In a remote mountain tribe, the young hunter, D'Leh (Steven Strait), has found his heart's passion -- the beautiful Evolet (Camilla Belle). When a band of mysterious warlords raid his village and kidnap Evolet, D'Leh is forced to lead a small group of hunters to pursue the warlords to the end of the world to save her. Driven by destiny, the unlikely band of warriors must battle saber-tooth tigers and prehistoric predators and, at their heroic journey's end, they uncover a Lost Civilization. Their ultimate fate lies in an empire beyond imagination, where great pyramids reach into the skies. Here they will take their stand against a powerful god who has brutally enslaved their people.
