At the stone age, there are rivalries within a tribe regarding the succession of the tribe leader. Vood intends to become the new leader and he is so determined to archieve his goal, he does not even flinch from committing murder. His brother Ela on the other hand is the more reasonable candidate and intends to make sure that Vood will burn for the crimes he committed. During a vulcano eruption, he finds some kind of metal that is harder than anything known so far. Being prepped with that, he gets his tribe back, exiles Ela and enslaves the tribes nearby one by one. Meanwhile, Ela is being accommodated by a pacifistic tribe. When Vood and his goons show, the "disagreement" will be settled for good.

Ironmaster is a quite entertaining stone age flick and it especially lives on George Eastman's presence. The perfectly styled actors in fur make it an interesting trash flick.

In the UK, the movie was released on Blu-ray by 88 Films. As documented on the bbfc website, cuts were required. At the beginning of the movie, when the cave men are hunting a boar, a few scenes that cointain animal cruelty have been removed. Interestingly enough, a little later on in the movie, when Bood attacks Ela and the other villagers, there are 22 missing seconds of Isa being taken hostage while the men are running straight to the battle field. Since the movie had been previously released by Code Red in the US, it is possible that 88 Films used the very same master that had been used for the Code Red release and said master simply lacks those scenes. In addition to that, the UK Blu-ray contains alternate footage of the vulcano eruption. One possible explanation is that those scenes had already been replaced by the US distributor - for whatever reason.
