Rating: 3.5/4 -- These characters and their quest began to grow on me, and by the time the movie was over I cared very much about how their lives would turn out. Full Review

The film is so well crafted and has such a relentless narrative drive that it quickly becomes absorbing.

Rating: 71/100 -- Despite the film's occasional goofy turns, by the end, chances are, you'll be rooting for the Ulam to work out that nifty little stick-rubbing trick for themselves. Full Review

Oct 29, 2003
An engaging prehistoric yarn that happily never degenerates into a club and lion skin spinoff of Star Wars and resolutely refuses to bludgeon the viewer with facile or gratuitous effects. Full Review

Quest for Fire takes us back 80,000 years to probe early human aggression, territoriality, dominance and education. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Not to everyone's taste, certainly, but those of an anthropological bent will appreciate Quest For Fire's admirably detailed portrayal of early man's struggles for survival. Full Review

The film may take a bit of getting used to, but proves to be well worth the effort. Audiences will find themselves not only informed and illuminated by its unique vision, but also enthralled and -- the biggest surprise of all --quite entertained. Full Review

Product Description:

During the Ice Age, the fire used by a clan of cavemen is extinguished during a battle. Subsequently, three members leave in search of new embers to renew their flame. This journey proves to be more event-filled than expected, however; for example, they rescue a young cavewoman from cannibalistic savages and she leads them to her tribe, where the trio learns the secrets of fire -- and love.

Plot Synopsis:

A prehistoric odyssey set at the dawn of mankind, when the first proto-humans let their fire go out and are forced to search for more across an untamed world. Well researched and realistic. Academy Award Nominations: Best Make-Up.
