      Apocalypto is one of the best jungle chase movies I have ever seen. It has humor, suspense, and non-stop action. It is one of my favorite movies. I have seen it at least ten times.

      The movie starts with a group of natives hunting a taper. A taper is bigger than a big pig. The group of hunters cross paths with a group of villagers on the run from some danger but they won’t say what they are running from.

      The danger was a group of slavers hunting them to take back to

      the mayan pyramids to be sacrificed. The hunters return to their village. The slavers attack the village of the hunters in the early morning and the battle begins.

      The slavers are experienced and capture a lot of the villagers quite easily. During the battle, the hero, Jaguar Paw hides his wife and son in a dry well by lowering them with a rope. He is seen and has to drop them into the dry well.

      Then he fights with the attacker and kills him. Then he tries to help the others but becomes ...

      • captured. Very cruel and sadistic treatment of the captured slaves.

        Very interesting and realistic portrayal of the mayan culture and civilization. The slavers get paid for capturing the sacrificial group and take them to be sacrificed. When Jaguar Paw is next to be disemboweled and beheaded he says he can’t go because he has to get back and save his family.

        He is led to the sacrificial stone and just before he is to be disemboweled there is an eclipse. The mayans decide that there has been enough sacrifice so they lead the

        captives away pretending to offer release but planning to kill them. They let them go two at a time but when they ran a ways they would shoot them down with one weapon or another.

        Jaguar Paw gets wounded but kills the leader of the slavers’s son in the escape. Then the chase is on. It is really an amazing jungle chase.

        Highly recommended. They start with a group of 8 or 10 hunters chasing and they drop one at a time when Jaguar Paw starts fighting back. Well worth watching several times.

        Final twist at the end.
