  • I love this movie not just because it's very entertaining, action-filled and suspenseful, but also because it's so informative (it gives us so much insight into the Mayan's way of life)

      Apocalypto is truly one of the most unique films I’ve ever seen. Really very interesting.

      The dialogues are delivered in Yucatec (ancient language during the Mayan civilization) and the actors are all unknown which makes the movie as real as real can be.

      Arguably Mel Gibson’s best film, Apocalypto takes place during the downfall of the Mayan civilization.

      It’s the story


      of Jaguar Paw (Rudy Youngblood), a villager leading a peaceful life in the forest whose life suddenly changes when his village is attacked.

      He hides his pregnant wife and son but is captured and taken as prisoner with the rest of the other villagers.

      They are then taken to a place so different from what they are accustomed to with people ...


      • wearing fancy jewelries and clothes and living in opulence.

        As offering to their gods, the invaders kill their prisoners by chopping off their heads.

        Jaguar has to escape so that he could return to his family, which he eventually does (although he nearly died doing so).

        I love this movie not just because it’s very entertaining, action-filled and suspenseful, but also

        because it’s so informative (it gives us so much insight into the Mayan’s way of life).

        Mel Gibson’s direction is superb and all the actors gave strong performances.

        Although it’s very violent and gory, people should still watch it (but not with a full stomach).

        Apocalypto proves that Mel Gibson is indeed one of Hollywood’s most talented directors.

        Watch Apocalypto to see for yourselves.
