One Million Years B.C. back to product details

Visual presence of Raquel Welch makes up for a lot

Starts off a bit slow and C-movie-ish. If you can get beyond the incongruous dinosaurs, the rather well fed cavemen, and the studio quality cave lighting, the movie per se seems to be making a Lord-of-the-Flies/Godzilla type statement about mankind in the nuclear age. And even if they had made this movie in a parallel universe, without Ms. Welch, it might be worth watching on a slow day.

But in this universe it was made with Ms. Welch, and her stunning visual presence in a loincloth bikini makes up for a lot of shortcomings. It is a shame that they had to make this DVD from a copy of the movie, not the (lost) master, but it is still worth an evening.

I rated this an 8, not a 9, due to the technical artefacts of the film copy itself.
