This is great move. So savage, so brutal and that is exactly what it needs to be. And who can do it better than that crazy Mel Gibson. I would love to see more historical films from him.

A disgusting perspective.

The main character of the story - Jaguar Paw - is so dumb that he becomes unlikable. During the raid of his village, he not only gives away the fact that the person next to him is his father, but gives away his wife and sons hiding position as well. He basically gave up his whole family within the span of five minutes of the movie.

I was very irritated with the was Mayans were depicted in this film.
Mel Gibson and Farhad Safinia themselves stated they wanted to revolutionize the adventure genre, making a foot chase seem like a car chase.
That's the problem. Gibson and Safinia wanted to make a movie with thrills and adventure, not one depicting a fascinating ancient culture. That's why there is so much violence in this film in the first place. They were only looking to channel their a...

Apocalypto review

Clearly one of the most realistic and violent films created that is not for everybody. Jaguar Paw (Rudy Youngblood) with his father Flint Sky (Morris Birdyellowhead) and friends discover another tribe being vanquished. Zero Wolf (Raoul Trujillo) led the raiders in abducting the village of Jaguar Paw. This picture was engaging from start to finish. Cinematography and locations were breathtaking. Action sequences were authentic and brutal. Make-up, costumes and screenplay were incredibly creative. Amazing sequences were the usage of the "poison frog darts" with a leaf, symbolism of Jaguar Paw to a jaguar, and Seven's (Dalia Hernández) ways of surviving. Special features were insightful. One of the best lines from the movie: - "We are a people of destiny. Destined to be the masters ...

"Apocalypto" by Yojimbo

A Mayan tribe is raided and captured by a rival civilisation but young hunter Jaguar Paw escapes in an effort to reach his pregnant wife, still perilously concealed at their village. Anyone expecting (as I was) Dances With Lemurs is in for a big shock; Mel Gibson's name being attached to the project evokes certain preconceptions, but this gritty historical drama shatters them all. For a start, in a brave move, the entire film is subtitled which no doubt wrecked a lot of its box office appeal to the hicks but adds an awful lot to its authenticity. I'm no anthropolgist but to me this film had an intense realism to it I've rarely seen; at no time was it conspicuous that I was just watching actors acting. It all seemed brutally, bloodily real and Gibson certainly didn't shy away from the bloo...
