  • Gibson has made a film of blunt provocation and bruising beauty. show more

  • Yet Apocalypto has to be respected for the sheer audacity of it, for the commitment and ambition behind it, and for its presentation of a complete other world. It is the furthest thing from a cynical or casual piece of work. It's crazy, and it moves. show more

  • The movie is so impressionistic, it obfuscates any sense of history. We expect at least a hint at the causes of the Mayan Empire's demise, but instead we get Mesoamerican Rambo. show more

    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.
