Gibson has made a film of blunt provocation and bruising beauty. show more
By the end I felt sure it was the most obsessively, graphically violent film I'd ever seen, but equally sure that Apocalypto is a visionary work with its own wild integrity. And absolutely, positively convinced that seeing it once is enough for one lifetime. show more
The heart of the matter - and the viscera - is the action, and one man's determination to survive. Apocalypto is primal. show more
brilliant and VERY realistic!
One of the best movies I have ever watched. Funny, sad, exciting, this moviie has it all. Great acting by Rudy and all the cast.
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.
