Iceman (1984)

The serious version of earlier fare such as Trog (1970), about bringing a living representative from the caveman era into the modern world. In this case, the found frozen prehistoric man (John Lone) is from 40,000 years ago. He is, of course, presumed dead and an autopsy is prepared, but - against all odds - it's found that he might be revived.  This is done.  This all takes place at a base in the Arctic. Timothy Hutton stars as the anthropologist faced with the task of making some sort of connection with the man-out-of-time.
It's a foregone conclusion that the caveman, nicknamed "Charlie," will never fit in the modern world. It raises the question of why it became possible to revive him - was there some hidden purpose to it all? The ending is ambiguous and perhaps inelegant, as if all concerned were unsure of how to end it. Hutton is kind of pedestrian in this. Other members of the Arctic research team are played by Lindsay Crouse, Josef Sommer, David Straithairn and, in one his earliest roles, Danny Glover. BoG's Score: 6.5 out of 10
