The movie, 10, 000 B.C. is set in, you guessed it, 10, 000 B.C. At this time, sabre toothed tigers, wooly mammoths and a few reptilian birdlike predators still roamed the earth along with prehistoric man.
The story opens with the medicine woman predicting violent changes for the tribe after the last mammoth hunt from horseback riding devil creatures. But there is still hope for the salvation of the tribe in the form of the beautiful, blue-eyed Evolet, and from the man she is destined to belong to, the valiant young hunter/warrior D'Leh. Just as the medicine woman foreshadowed, the tribe is attacked after the first snowfall. Most of the men were chained to become slaves, and the beautiful Evolet was kidnapped.
D'Leh and his companions set out to rescue Evolet and the rest of their tribe from the marauders. They cross the mountains, cross the jungle, find many allies in other tribes, cross the desert with their army, and find Evolet and the rest of the captured prisoners working as slaves on the great pyramids of Egypt. And I won't spoil the ending of the story because D'Leh's rescue idea for taking on the pharoah's army was pretty cool.
This movie is rated PG-13. Although I wouldn't say it's worth buying, it is an action/adventure movie worth renting if you've never seen it before.
