I’m not a big fan of caveman movies and this one, even though it was made by Hammer, didn’t do much to win me over.

Frankly, I wouldn’t have watched this if it wasn’t part of a Hammer box set that I bought. It’s the last film in that box set of twenty and I guess that Hammer saved the worst for last. Although, there are some people that like caveman shit for some reason.

Like all other caveman flicks, this is slow, boring, cookie cutter and seemingly pointless, by the end.

There are different cavemen tribes, they initially party together, some shit pops off, they fight, there’s a hot cave chick and one of the cavemen fighting for her falls off a cliff and the other one wins her, I guess.

Sorry, I mentally check out with these movies. I do initially try to pay attention and hope that there will be something in it that grabs me and shows me that there are worthwhile works in this genre but I’m always left braindead and wondering why the movie was even made, other than you can make shit like this for free if you have a camera, a few animal pelts and sticks.

Rating: 4/10
