Trivia

Turok first appeared in Four Color #596, in a one-shot written by Dell cartoonist Gaylord DuBois. It was intended as a continuation of his earlier series Young Elk, with those characters in the lead roles, and it is now uncertain who came up with the names Turok and Andar, which replace the names Young Elk and Small Bow in this first of all the Turok stories.

A decent film, but lacking something...
28 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

I've always liked the character of Turok. My dad grew up reading Turok so when Valiant comics released new Turok comics in the 90's, we followed them. I had read a lot of good reviews about this movie but I have to say that overall it was just OK. There are two sides to this movie. First, we have no-holds bar action and violence. There are severed heads, blood splattering, and Turok delivering good old fashion beat-downs on enemy warriors and dinosaurs alike. Turok's design is good and stays true to his comic origins. His sidekick from the comics, Andar, is there too. And the designs for the Lost Land and the dinosaurs within are all very well done. On the other hand, the animation reminds me of some of the recent Marvel and DC animated projects. And while I think that style is good, it just didn't seem to fit with all the violence. Overall, the voice cast is just OK. No one, not even Turok, seems to stand out. The musical score is great at times- very orchestral and moving. But other times, it's almost synthesized and doesn't fit with the movie. It's an origin story for Turok and covers all the basics while adding new reasons for him to venture into the lost land. I just think this more mature movie would have benefited from more mature animation. But, it is one I recommend anyone give a try because I'm really on the fence about this one.
