According to Michael Klossner, author of Prehistoric Humans in Film and Television, Ironmaster received "few and very bad notices."[3] Klossner responded that the film is "simple, only modestly ambitious and has its share of flaws. However, it's hard not to like a film which shows intelligent, articulate prehistoric people making discovers, facing moral issues and showing capacity for great evil and finally for good."[4] Hal Erickson (AllMovie) stated that "Seldom there has then been a more predictable 98 minutes' worth of Sword and Sorcery, but that doesn't mean it isn't enjoyable."[5]
