IMDb rating: 8.7/100
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 100%
The Emmy and Annie-winning mega-brain behind Samurai Jack and Star Wars: Clone Wars, writer-director-producer Genndy Tartakovsky brings Adult Swim fans this brutal visual feast, with zero dialogue and some raw emotion.
A caveman at the dawn of evolution. A dinosaur on the brink of extinction. Bonded by tragedy, this unlikely friendship is their only hope in a violent, primordial world, where the first and only imperative is survival.
Primal has an 8.7/10 score on IMDb and a 100% critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes, where the critics’ consensus is, “Epic in every sense, Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal is a stunning feat of visual storytelling.”
“Epic yet intimate, Primal is awash in eye-popping imagery,” says Hollywood Reporter. “Primal is vicious stuff. It’s a rarely pausing saga of bone-breaking, head-severing, tooth-extracting, face-smashing brutality… Tartakovsky has long been a distinctive force in TV animation and this is another winner, a spare storytelling experiment that plays like nothing else in the current landscape.”
