A Quick Review of “Quest for Fire”

In Quest for Fire, a group of Paleolithic humanoids travel across dangerous country in search of fire. Along the way they meet up with a sabre-toothed tiger, woolly mammoths, cannibals and a more technologically advanced species (homo sapiens). The story is compelling and entertaining — and probably the most accurate depiction of early humans on film. Watching Quest for Fire is like jumping into a time machine. It’s fascinating.

The YouTube clip contains the worst music of any trailer I’ve seen. Fortunately, none of it is used the movie.
