I would only watch it as a rental. It is a clean movie...no foul language or sexual content. The made up language was pointless. we get that its supposed to be 20,000 years ago...its ok to have them speak English. Started out ok, but after the main character falls off the cliff it's a lot of the same stuff... walking through the snow. Seemed like a lot of filler. The main point was that the boy was supposed to "come of age". I didn't get the sense that ever happened. Too much of a beta male
First of all, the movie is subtitled with a language that is not real, so they didn't have to really do this . The movie is very engaging and the visuals were very colorful and picturesque. The movie keeps you interested and it goes on like a survival film with man and wolf against the elements. It is sort of predictable but enjoyable to say the least. You will enjoy the way the relationship with the wolf and boy develop and this is the essence of the movie (I think) and the feel good part. There is not much violence, nor profanity or unusual acts of nature, it is just what you expect. Worth looking at with kids or just to pass the time. You've seen it before in other films, not as good as eight below from Disney but still worth a watch.
I give props to this film because most miss the true underlined statement that the story brings. A father loses a child who survives and goes through perilous life changing adventures full of deathly circumstances at every turn and the boy saves a potential killer wolf who together made it possible for both to survive and we're the least likely of companions. Which in turn changed the history of mankind and domesticated animals in which became our greatest allies to this day. Good bless
