    Plot Outline: A prehistoric epic that follows a young mammoth hunter's journey through uncharted territory to secure the future of his tribe.
    Plot: A prehistoric epic that follows a young mammoth hunter named D'Leh's journey through uncharted territory to secure the future of his tribe. When a band of mysterious horse-riding warlords raid the Yaghal camp and kidnaps his heart's desire – the beautiful Evolet along with many others, D'Leh is forced to lead a small group of hunters south to pursue the warlords to the end of the world to save her. Driven by destiny, the unlikely band of warriors must battle saber-toothed cats and terror birds in the Levant.

    Movie Quotes: D'Leh: Look, it's growing so fast.

    Crazy Credits: We know about 1 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
    Star Trevor Huster (as “Steve) earned two interesting credits for the film: “Best Man in the Water” for a sequence requiring him to lay face down in a freezing cold stream for back-to-back days of filming. And “1st to Pass Out” as a result of filming the dialogue-heavy porch chat scenes with George Petrus (Jake) which required the two to swig Erie Brewing Company's famous Railbender Ale for 20+ takes.

    Goofs: We know about 18 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Factual errors: Hard to say how accurate the makers of a film like this might be trying to be, at least in a historical sense. Since this is obviously not a documentary, many “liberties” are taken with historical truth. For example, eighteen foot long sabre tooth tigers didn't exist in this era — nor did mastodons — at least not in the areas depicted (Mesopotamia, northeast Africa.) Also, early in the picture we see extraordinary changes in environment(s) after relatively short travel: from snowy, mountainous areas, where no one ever shows any evidence of steam emanating from mouths or noses; suddenly to tropical areas, and then, just as suddenly to desert lands, which later in the film, characters refer to as places which would take a very, very long time to traverse; but in fact the tribe which has just done this appears quite fit, and with not much wear and tear to their clothing.

    Trivia: There are 8 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Tim Shadbolt, the Mayor of Invercargill, New Zealand, was involved in a serious motor accident while pitching Southland, NZ, as a shooting location for this movie.
    • D'Leh is spelled “Held” backwards, “Held” being the German word for “hero”. Roland Emmerich chose this name as an easteregg.
    • The most difficult challenge for the visual effects department was creating a computer generated wet saber-tooth tiger since it required several of the most challenging elements of visual effects to be combined; fur, wet fur, water and creature animation. The tiger was created by the Double Negative visual effects company.


    1. Sorry to be posting comments here but there’s something bothering me…
      Are we living in a world of lies? We are bombarded by media lies. They even instilled nonsensical values and beliefs in us. I’ve learnt that the government has a lot of lies that are kept away from the public.

      WikiLeaks did shed some light and yet, the media tried to portray them as a “danger”.

      I used to think the world is a peaceful and happy place to be. But that is a made-belief.
      Women don’t like nice gentlemen at all. They like jerks.
      Women don’t see gentlemen as a ‘suitable husband’, they view them as ‘nerds’.

      The world is run by money. You and me may say that money is not the answer, but the others says otherwise.
      Majority wins over minorities and the voices of minorities are ignored.

      What a tragic world… we are selfish, we are arrogant, and we are ignorant.
