Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a horrible movie."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"One part Joseph Campbell hero quest, one part multi-culti morality tale, one part live-action Flintstones cartoon, 10,000 B.C. is finally every part just plain nuts."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"A lousier adventure movie you won't find this year: 10,000 B.C. belongs, if not back in the stone age, then at least back in the mid '90s, where this sort of mindless, effects-driven drivel is best left."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"Some backgrounds look as though Roland Emmerich and crew broke into a museum after hours and filmed in dioramas. Rather than a disaster film, this was just plain disaster - a departure from Emmerich's usually effective milieu and his most moronic movie."
‑ Nick Rogers, Suite101.com
"10,000 BC takes film making back to the stone age..."
‑ Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel, 3BlackChicks Review
"Like the lumbering mammoths, it is plodding and dull."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"This much-delayed film cries out for consideration for Worst CGI, Most Annoying Narrator, Lamest Dialogue and Dumbest Action Hero."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"All [Emmerich] cares about is not being boring. On that level, he succeeds."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Time Out Chicago
"Violent, poorly conceived prehistoric action."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, Common Sense Media
"Brace yourself for a mammoth disappointment."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"Neither grand enough to be impressive nor antic enough to be charming, the movie settles for bland and frantic, climaxing in a showdown among decadent pyramid builders."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Even a cameo by Pauly Shore in Encino Man would liven up this bombastic bore."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"One of the biggest problems with the film is the casting."
‑ Chris Bumbray, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"Heavy on moronic mysticism and light on imagination, excitement, and shot-to-shot coherence"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"People expecting a fun action movie will be severely disappointed. If you get drunk with some buddies and go to make fun of it, you might like it more. But that doesn't make it a good movie"
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
