Film Review: Year One (2009)

An adventure, comedy staring Jack Black and Michael Cera. Initially living with their primitive tribe in the woods, events thrust them into ancient civilisation where they enjoy and suffer the delights and injustices that come with it.

It’s not very good. While I did laugh at times, mainly due to the performances of Black, Cera and the other fine comedy actors involved, it’s not a well written or executed film. It’s fine for some escapism that doesn’t require much thought. It’s like the simpleton brother of Apocalypto, which is a fine film. Although this film doesn’t have the same epic scale in the sets, costumes, etc. It’s all rather cheesy.

Rating: ★★½☆☆
