A comical clay-mation animation of Cave Man from asteroid clash and the invention of football, bleeding into Romans, Vikings, and other mish-mash of historic timelines. A “dumb and dumber” of the Stone Age fighting the Bronze Age for the prehistoric jungle. Machines and Mastadons, to bunny hunts, the Neanderthals figure out Soccer. Its a quest to save their homeland from the Bronze empire.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5. Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions at Tinseltown using Movie Pass. ~

Comes the world when global warming has created such a grand crisis that all nations had to join forces to fight natural catastrophes. Building a space station with thousands of satellites used to control the weather, the nicknamed “Dutch Boy” system is just about to be passed off to the United Nations from the USA.

Its left up to the creator to figure out what’s going on. Emblazoned within a family relationship and struggle, the binds of blood saves the day, but not before hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, deep freezes and heat waves devastate the planet.
