Oh WWE, how thou have fallen.

The WWE, once a company producing classic wrestling matches but now is a joke. when my little brother asked me to watch this with him I was a little hesitant but did it anyway. And boy, I was not let down. This film is cringe worthy from both an adult and kid standpoint. After watching this piece of art, I could see the disappointment and disgust on my brothers face. The story is laughable and the "action" is boring beyond belief. Parents, If your kids want to watch wrestling let them watch one of WWE's tv shows and don't put them through this. But from a teen/adult standpoint it could be fun just to watch it for how bad it is 1/5 stars.

Is It Any Good?

While STONE AGE SMACKDOWN does feature a lot of the quirky Stone Age gadgets and gizmos that were really the best part of the original series, this wrestling-centric reboot mostly falls flat. None of the original characters are very interesting or likable, and the plot is obviously a very thin attempt to cram in as many WWE characters and references as possible. If you have no knowledge of the WWE franchise, you'll have no frame of reference for all the side characters, which makes the flick mostly tedious and boring.

Die-hard wrestling fans may enjoy seeing their favorite personas brought to cartoon life. But fans of The Flintstones will mostly be left cold and are probably better off sticking to the original series.
