It is such a bold and inspiring picture, I thought it was pretty amazing. Of course, there is no way to know how accurate the whole thing is but I thought it was very believable.

Movie Reviews (251-300) (50 movies items)

" Fantasy movie with a historic flavor about primitive people hunting for the secret behind the flame. It may not be historic correct, but it is a unique visual movie.
