Every once in a while I like to break out of my comfort zone and watch a film that I wouldn’t normally watch. Sometimes, I am rewarded, like with Winter’s Bone. Other times I am disappointed, such as with this film. Overall the film did do a number of things correctly (the Oscar-nominated 6 year old who played the main role was excellent), but ultimately the film did not hold my interest. Generally speaking, the plot was kind of boring and the back story about the cavemen and ancient animals who walked the earth did not mesh well with the story.
