A Sweeping Odyssey






Talk about your average "Hero To Die For" in the primitive sense. Try this one on for size... Steven Strait as D'Leh in 10,000 BC

A mythical age of prophesies and gods, when spirits rule the land and mighty mammoths shake the earth.

In a remote mountain tribe, the young hunter D’Leh (Steven Strait) has found his heart’s passion – the beautiful Evolet (Camilla Belle). But when a band of mysterious warlords raid his village and kidnap Evolet, D’Leh leads a small group of hunters to pursue the warlords to the end of the world to save her. As they venture into unknown lands for the first time, the group discovers there are civilizations beyond their own and that humankind’s reach is far greater than they ever knew. At each encounter, other tribes attacked by the slave raiders turn D’Leh’s once-small band into an army.

Driven by destiny, the unlikely warriors must battle prehistoric predators while braving the harshest elements. At their heroic journey’s end, they uncover a lost civilization and learn their ultimate fate lies in an empire beyond imagination, where great pyramids reach into the skies.

Here they will take their stand against a tyrannical god who has brutally enslaved their own. And it is here that D’Leh finally comes to understand that he has been called to save not only Evolet but all of civilization.


Warner Bros. Pictures 10,000 BC is in theatres now and rated PG-13 for sequences of intense action and violence.

I say this one is worth checking out.

Good movie-- full of action a guy can like. I enjoyed it even if some critics didn't.

Wow, you've been busy. I was so glad to see your short story and the terrific post you made about 10,000. Perhaps your muse is with you more than you realize...
