Harry exclaims, 'Sweet Father of Life - TUROK: SON OF STONE - Animated DVD is unbelievably fantastic!!!'

Hey folks - Harry here... Ya know... I really can't believe this. On Friday - I got sent 32 DVDs from all different companies to review. It was an unbelievable wave of materials that I was expected to get through - in addition to the regular pile of 6-9 dvds that arrive every day. But one title jumped out at me... TUROK: SON OF STONE.



I was never a fan of the Valiant Comics reboot. I read the first 5 or so issues of it, but didn't get into it. I'm an old DELL comic TUROK reader. My father read them to me - I loved the idea of an Indian Dinosaur Fighter. It was just way cooler than just the typical prehistoric man... But when I flipped the box over - and I looked at the animation frames on the back... It looked like lame Saturday Morning Animation. But dammit - I wanted to believe in this. They were basing it on the older comics - they got Adam Beach to be the voice of Turok. That's perfect. So tonight - when I came home from the WEEKEND OF HORRORS - FANGORIA convention - I put all the screeners I got there into my pile... and I pulled out that Animated TUROK: SON OF STONE feature. I honestly thought... I'll take it out in about 15 minutes. I really did. I put it in - and the WEINSTEIN COMPANY logo came up - and I thought... What the fuck? Why on Earth is this a Weinsten Company animated release - I picked up the DVD box again - saw that it had as one of the directors... Dan Riba, he's the guy behind a whole hell of a lot of the best episodes of the animated SUPERMAN, BATMAN BEYOND, JUSTICE LEAGUE and other episodes. Remember APOKOLIPS... NOW! two parter? Then there was Curt Geda - who directed the BATMAN BEYOND: RETURN OF THE JOKER video feature - and SUPERMAN: THE LAST SON OF KRYPTON. Then there was Frank Squillace - who hadn't really been anyone on my radar. But 2 out of 3 were looking pretty fucking sharp. SO I settled back and watched. It began with Turok as a teenager with his brother flirting with the girl of their desires - and there was this goofy chase and wrestling thing - and they get given the mission that whoever should return her totem that was swept down the river would get her. I'm rolling my eyes... until a hostile band of indians showed up - and suddenly the thing turns bloody fucking violent. I'm talking disemboweling and arms coming off and head wounds and I'm just sort of stunned - because the animation - while nicely designed... was very much Saturday Morning-esque. A few steps away from what I had hoped... but what it lacked in frames per second and effects animation... this thing made up in tone, character work, story and direction. TUROK: SON OF STONE is an adult rendering of the classic 50s character. It is brutal, hardcore and graphic. Now - it skips copulating and juvenile sexual escapades (dammit) - but the story of mutual vengeance, tribal genocide and just the blood-letting and intensity of the violence was jaw-dropping because... man, I can't think of the last time blood flowed this freely in this style animation. It was like Filmation with the balls to grow the fuck up. A lot of Native American vocal talent went into this - and that attention to detail is welcomed here. Yet they're not talking like dumbed down White man parody characters. These characters have souls and histories and their respect intact. The ENTIRE TIME I'M WATCHING THIS - I'm dreaming of a live-action version of this. Perhaps the Weinsteins are testing the grounds with this Animated telling. Maybe they're hoping to see a demonstration of an audience. Maybe, just maybe they'll show this to Robert Rodriguez and get him to make a film version as hard and four times as badass as this. If not Robert - I'd wet dream about Michael Mann... but he's never demonstrated he has the interest in fun stuff like dinosaurs. But gaddamn man... I dare you to watch this and not dream of a spectacularly large scale version of this. I can't wait to show this to ol Father Geek tomorrow. And then next weekend... to my nephew. This is the sort of thing every good boy should see. Indians versus Dinosaurs... with their blood mingling in an unknown river of violence in a forgotten valley never seen or found by modern man! This is where Turok hunts, this cartoon has the spirit which Turok fought with. I'm so jazzed. Way to go - Everyone Responsible!!!

    Not Bad. Not Bad At All

    by lovecraftian

    I actually remember the old Valiant days. A few of my buddies managed a couple of shops in the early nineties-- Sears: Sports, Cards and Comics, and All American Comics. (Bit of Trivia: Out of that little click was spawned the Lunatic Wrestling Federation, and out of THAT came WWE Superstar, CM Punk--- CM for Chick Magnet... Haven't seen him in years, but not a bad chap as I recall.)Anywho, I remember that was thing. Image had the artists. Valiant had the writers, and former Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics, Jim Shooter. I didn't catch too much of it myself. (I was always confused as to what to read in the "variant-cover-for- the-latest-super-villain-turned- anti-hero" days.) But my pals always doted on Valiant. They glowed at the adventures of Archer and Armstrong, Turok, and, of course, Doctor Mirage. Eventually, I did get a chance to look in on some the work they did, and I don't remember being displeased. I'll certainly have to check it out. Am I... Am I required to say First? I don't know the etiquette.

    by micturatingbenjamin

    Fucking New Frontiers....The new WB cartoon. Holy shit, Hal Jordan is the frookin MAN in that one. It's awesome from top to bottom: Angel plays Hal Jordan and Agent Dale Cooper plays Superman, and XENA! plays Wonder Woman. Add to this the same feeling of this should be a real live action flick, and the best damned depiction of Martian Manhunter in the world, that gets my money.

    Turok 2: Seeds of Evil was a badass game

    by Han Cholo

    Had some awesome kills and was a great 1st person shooter for the n64. Too bad I never beat it but it was one of the best 1st person shooters I played. Sadly, the others weren't up to par but the new Turok game looks like it could be dope.

  • Jan. 21, 2008, 1:49 a.m. CST

    Yeah Turok 2 was awesome.

    by GibsonUSA

    Too bad the other ones were mediocre. I had Turok 2 for console and PC and it was incredible...so much so that I bought Turok 1...and ended up playing that one only once. Then after that they all sucked. Turok 2 is almost like Resident Evil 2, a part 2 that completely stands out (even though other RE's were great too).

    Turok...is kinda like Rambo with Dinosausrs. Cool!!!

    by JDanielP

    I've long thought that the Turok material could be great fun on the BIG SCREEN, in the right hands, with the right effects technology and a large enough budget. For the part of Turok,...there should be a search for a true Indian-American. I mean, this is sorta like looking for the right actor to play Superman, you know? ...And how cool would it be if they found someone that was as dedicated as Sly Stallone, back in the day of those Rambo sequels? Rambo, in his physical prime,...in an environment of dinosaurs as cool as any in "JURASSIC PARK" and Jackson's "KING KONG" with be...oh, man, that would be so awesome, in the right hands. I'm over 40 and this still sounds like it could be one of the coolest things in the right hands, as a huge summer blockbuster. The video games have been fun. But a movie?! Now...THAT...I would be extremely excited about. Especially if all the right elements came together to make it as great as it could be. And sprinkle in some Indiana Jones, while you're at it.

    and have a huge following in Asia. No white people please. Even more, imagine mixing Adam Beach (Canadian Native) and the Ong Bak crowd (Tony Jaa, Jeeja). And definitely, tap into the huge amount of Native American artists waiting to break into the film industry. Don't know what it's like in the U.S., but here in Canada they're the *best* when it comes to naturalistic fine arts.

    I don't know Harry. I get sucked into these animated snore fests every time. Avengers, Superman, Iron Man, Dungeons and Dragons etc. They always end up being terrible. I'm not even looking forward to Justice League: The New Frontier. I hate to be bitter, how many dissapointments can one take in a row? I'll try Turok, which wasn't even on my radar screen, but considering I got bored watching the 60 second youtube trailer I'm not holding out much hope. It's hard to believe out of the Valiant properties it was Turok and not Magnus Robot Fighter that became a hot property.

    On The Subject Of New Animated DTV...

    by Prague23

    I've heard no mention of the 'cool news' regarding the first (that I'm aware of) video adaptation of a Dragonlance novel - 'Dragons of Autumn Twilight' which was released last Tuesday(? I think). <p> If you want my review...<p> 'D.O.A.T.' suffers in a lot of ways and is in no way relatively good. A huge problem is pacing. Another is the poor combined use of 3D and 2D animation (2D heroes fighting much more impressive looking 3D bad guys?! - WTF?!) It also left out tons of stuff (although not entire characters a la LOTR) and every other conversation was about Tanis' half-bred heritage or someone's lack of faith in some god. Everything from the novel was glossed over or fast-forwarded through. The end battle doesn't even adhere to the rules of common sense because, I swear to god, at the point when there's an entire army of draconians closing in, due to exposition, this army disappears until the audience is told enough info to fill in the gaps the film neglects to show us through action, then 'unpauses' the army's assault to continue the battle.<p> Not even Kiefer Sutherland voicing Raistlin (the foundation of my desire to watch it) was able to save this adaption from ultimately disappointing in almost every possible way. <p> It's redeeming value is, like with Turok, perhaps this is some kind of testing ground for possibly a life-action production of some sort. <p> Or, if this series continues (so far only the 1st of the Dragon's Trilogy has been released, I have no idea if the other 2 are in the works or not), hopefully someone will realize that 'THE LEGEND OF (Motherf-ing) HUMA' is the best f-ing story in the entire Dragonlance universe and that needs to be on deck for whatever adaptation, DTV or cinematic, the TSR folks are planning next.

    by BetaSword

    Well, i actually played all Turok games on N64 and GC, and I'm wondering, if i might get me a Copy of the Actual PC-Title. Well, as it goes for this animated Turok, it seems, that it's quite good and Turok-typically bloody. BTW: The German Located PC-Versions of 1&2 were ugly censored(Aiden replaced with a Robot in the Multiplayer-Game), rendering them less interesting than the unlocalized N64-Versions(if I blast a Grenade on a Raptor, I expect dismemberment) As far as it goes for me, I'm pro this Film.

    In Northern America, fossilized dinosaur tracks have been located along with human tracks on the same riverbed stones, lending many to believe that on this continent, mankind was walking upright during the age of the dinosaurs, so Turok isn't exactly hard to accept as a concept.

    by troutpencil

    (and not anime) Seriously dickweeds, you don't qualify as nerds at all. At least not interesting nerds. Real genre-fans (nerds) are interested in anything that features carnage filled battles between ____ and dinosaurs. The fact that Turok is a famous property makes it more interesting. And if the animation is as good as Batman: The Animated Series or the Superman series or the Justice League series, it's going to be fucking great. You people are really awful I mean it. You pretend to be interested in fantasy and action and scifi stuff but you shun it for bullshit reasons. One of the only genuine fantasy movies ever made is Fire and Ice, but it's animated (rotoscoped) so you'd probably never see it and mock it. Continue living in your boring insular world motherfuckers.

    I'm sure there is a whole subset of people here who appreciate the hell out of Bakshi's work. I consider the motion tracking of stuff like Beowulf, and the computerized stuff from A Scanner Darkly the natural successor to rotoscoping, which I wish had produced more coherent films aside from Fire and Ice. "making sense" was never Bakshi's strong point.

    The problem with the animated movie.

    by Uncapie

    Moms will freakout because their little precious will see arms getting chopped off, arrows being fired into the flesh and penetrating deep, skulls being crushed open with tomahawks and such. Lots of blood and gratuitous violence. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the movie and it is faithful to the comic books, but the problem is the film has a limited audience. Either original fans of the comic who are between 45-55 or the resurgence of it back in the eighties, 30-40 will appreciate this. Mainstream audiences won't have a clue who Turok is. But, then if they made it PC and Turok made friends with the Neaderthals and dinosaurs, we'd have fucking "Doctor Dolittle."

    Fire and Ice

    by troutpencil

    Has a very rushed and generic plotline. When you're watching it you know what the general story is about because it's so typical of fantasy, but it sprints through everything without putting any meat on it. Evil glacier empire, young untested hero who has to challenge emperor/sorcerer/villain, hot evil sorceress chick, the aged badass death-dealer dude, etc. We know where it's going but it doesn't do the job of storytelling very well. But still, it's one of the best fantasy movies we have, mainly because the competition is so weak. (My favorites are Excalibur and Conan the Barbarian.) I liked Beowulf for a lot of the same reasons I like Fire and Ice. And I truly dislike that people dismiss Beowulf and Fire and Ice and this Turok movie because they're presented as animation. This is cool stuff we're getting, and you've got to embrace what you can get.

    by smackfu

    It made me feel nauseous after about an hour of playing, it was so retardedly huge and difficult. But it had an incredible atmosphere and sense of isolation to it, hard to describe but it had a personality that few FPS are able to achieve. I hope this comes out on Wii Virtual Console soon...

We all love to be entertained, but cheap animation is insulting. They should have literally cut a corner off of the screen on the Marvel Animated DVDs. I hate when people rip an audience for turning their back on garbage. It's like the new Alien vs Predator bombing. Audiences love Aliens and Predators, but don't insult us. Make a good one and we'll come but don't think you can pass off anything. While I'm in full out rant mode, one more point. Can we stop with the "my franchise is better than your franchise nonsense? Even if I were to concede Star Wars is better than Star Trek (I'm not) Does that mean I can't watch Star Trek? I don't get what you idiots mean with that. OK, rant over.

    Don't forget a cameo from the ever-lovin', "Skeletor" too! I have to go back and watchmy super-duper., Blu-Ray/HD DVD hybrid of, the "Kwiki Koala Show" about the adventures of a slow talking, yet fast moving Koala bear. Those eucalyptus leaves are addicting. Just say "no" kids!

    New Turok Game

    by acorvey25

    I tested the PS3 version. It has almost nothing to do with the comic series and the original N64 game. You play as an Indian space marine who crash lands on a planet filled with dinos. That's right... alien dinosaurs. Sure, knifing raptors is fun and all but you reach overload when you do it 8 hours a day for 4 months.

    Nifty blog entry on Turok

    by kalel21

    I ran across a neat blog entry on the old Turok comics at comicsradio.blogspot.com. You have to jump back to the November entries to find it.
