Turning on the commentary with Annaud, I marveled at the beautiful shots, his always interesting - and sometimes very funny - anecdotes retaining my attention throughout. He goes the Gibson route (okay, if anything, it's the other way around) of refraining from letting the tribes speak English. A smart choice, I think. While not for anybody with the slightest ADD tendencies, it's an impressive piece of work, attaining remarkable verisimilitude through the first-rate cast and wonderful locations.

It's terribly hard to make a film about cave men and make it enjoyable, but this film does that pretty well. Probably the biggest accomplishment is that it does capture how important "fire" is. When fire is made you can really sense the amazement and wonder at the sight. It does drag however and honestly I don't see how it couldn't at some parts. Still it's got humor, adventure and it did an amazing job of allowing the viewer comprehend character interaction without an understood language.

What I learned from this movie: It took humanity 2,000,000 years and a naked Rae Dawn Chong to learn the civilized way to copulate...and a mere two decades of Internet porn and Snoop Dogg to bring us back to rutting like sabertoothed wallabies.

It does drag at some parts, but as someone who's interested in human life in ancient times, it's pretty interesting. A lot more can certainly be done with this time period to make a great film or two. Nice use of visuals to tell a story without dialogue.

Pretty awesome considering that chick from Commando is naked the entire film and there is no dialogue.
