Anyone seen this yet?
The ultimate anti-chick flick.
Unsurpassed violence, and brilliantly done.
The guy knows how to make a movie.
A great escape from our increasingly pussified culture.
The film is obviously a thinly disguised critique of the Bush administration's idiot foray into Iraq and its subsequent 'a**- kicking' by the Al Zarqawi led insurgents.
As in the film EVERYONE told them how dangerous it was going to be but the Ship of Folls kept bobbing like a cork onward into the depths of HELL
Brilliant film by Mel Gibson!
Gibson unblushingly intends "Apocalypto" as a clarion call warning modern man to watch his step or risk following the Mayas into decline and near-extinction. To this end he opens the story with a famous quote from historian Will Durant about the fall of Rome: "A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within." .......http://www.bluecorncomics.com/2006/12/mels-message-christians-saved-indians.html
Finally saw it.
Terrific action movie. Very well done. Cinematography is outstanding.
I liked everything about it except the very end...just too many coincidences.
I did not see the connection others have drawn between this movie and the Iraq war, but Gibson definitely has something to say about societies rotting from within.
4 out of 5.
