    An outstanding work. Mel Gibson's masterpiece. Not for those with anxiety over violent displays, however. Aggression-phobics will find it distasteful. Explores the essence of human personality without the overlay of artificial, culturally-imposed, refinement. If you realistically accept aggression as an immutable aspect of nature you will be able to appreciate this film as a masterwork. See BMW15AE's user's review.
