Turok: Son of Stone (2008)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Turok: Son of Stone (2008) This animated feature adapts the Dell/Gold Key comic book character to a modern audience and does it extremely well.

As a young warrior Turok is cast out of his tribe after he almost kills his own brother during a battle with a warring tribe. Sixteen years later his nephew, Andar, finds him and asks for his help in defending the tribe, which is under attack by that same enemy tribe, lead by evil tyrant Chichak. Turok refuses at first, but ends up in the fight towards the end, though most of his people are slaughtered. The survivors are Andar and his mother. The trio flee into a cavern and emerge out into a prehistoric land inhabited by cavemen and dinosaurs. Chichak followes them there and is determined to slay them. He manages to become leader of a tribe of cannibalistic neanderthals after killing their leader.

Turok and his group encounter monstrous sea creatures living in the lakes and rivers, a dangerous Carnatosaurus. And then they come across the most unexpected thing of all—a tribe of Native Americans living in this lost land, a tribe who is descended from Turok's very own people. Turok, once a loner, now has to protect his people against Chichak and his warmongering cavemen.

The animation is good and the movie is surprisingly violent and bloody, definitely intended for those older Turok fans. In fact, I think this movie is the best adaptation of the comic that's possible. TUROK: SON OF STONE is a treat.
