The Digest

Narrartor Omar Shariff tells the story of D'Leh (Steven Strait) and Evolet (Camilla Belle) who are prophesized to save their people from the "four-legged demons" who travel from tribe to tribe and enslave whomever they catch.

Evolet is and brought to the encampment and it is envisioned that whomever she loves will be the savior of the people. This person will become a great warrior. So when she begins to fall in love with D’Leh it is a surprise because he is considered to be a coward who is the son of a coward. A notion that D’Leh rejects and the true warrior of the tribe, Tic-Tic, knows to not be true as well.

Before long the demons do show up and take Evolet over the mountains and through the desert to the kingdom of “The Almighty” where is D’Leh going to find the strength to take on the demon horde? Out numbered 100 to 1?

The Dish

Good God this movie was so bad it hurt my feelings. I love cheesy movies that are filled with mind numbing entertainment So if I start having trouble with it, you know there is a problem. My first issue was after watching the trailer. Sistah girl majored in History so I knew something was odd. There was about many thousands of years between the Pyramids and 10,000 BC. But you didn’t need to be a history major. Some stuff just didn’t make common sense

Writer/Director Emmerich expects us to forgive too much. I would have been more inclined to accept the story had the stayed true to the time era. I can deal with cavemen, saber tooth tigers, 15 foot tall ostriches, and wooly mammoths. I could deal with a land that time forgot. I can not deal with the afore mentioned taking place in Ancient Egypt. I can’t deal with the Caucasian warrior single handedly saving all the tribes of Africa and the blue eyed woman saving a race of people because she has blue eyes and there fore must be magical. That’s all I need. One more movie showing Africans as incapable of getting out of their predicament. It’s like one of those dumbass movies from the 40s or 50s that were filled with stereotypes. It’s 2008 why are we seeing this mess again? I’m personally offended that Emmerich would reinforce these stereotypes again.

Aside from that, it was just poorly acted. And who names a grown man Tic-tic?

The Directive

I can’t recommend this. I’m dumber for having seen it. Save yourself.
