When the end comes, not everyone is ready to go
Set in the Mayan civilization, when a man's idyllic presence is brutally disrupted by a violent invading force, he is taken on a perilous journey to a world ruled by fear and oppression where a harrowing end awaits him. Through a twist of fate and spurred by the power of his love for his woman and his family he will make a desperate break to return home and to ultimately save his way of life.
How this is not considered one of the finest action movies of the decade is beyond me. It is brutal, hard-hitting, exhilarating and contains a world so fully realized that I have to smile. The costumes, the mayan decorations, the jungle, the temples, everything is perfect. Equally colorful and real, the film juggles emotions and violent action wonderfully. It's a powerful movie that never lets up or looks back. One of my all-time favorites. I wish people could look beyond whoever Gibson is as a private person and see him for the brilliant master director he can be. Also, I hope his viking film will see the light of day sometime. It would be epic.
Mel Gibson is a sick man. We can all agree. But I usually don't like to judge people's work through the prism of their personal life. It sounds like a romantic idea but Apocalypto is the perfect example of why this is important. Out of the insanity from Mel Gibson, it's hard to deny the talent and creativity of the work on this film. I think it's an underrated masterpiece of the highest order. From the conception, to the casting, to the pace, to the set design, to the historical accuracy, it's a amazing.
This movie is worth watching just for the 10 minutes you get in the city. It's all real sets, it's all real people, and it's all…
A truly remarkable work of action cinema from a director who really knows how mix together a thrilling cinematic cocktail (2 parts adrenalin to 1 part mysticism, with a turbo-charged shot of viscera for extra kick).
It's essentially a chase movie and it's near-relentless. It looks great, with some rough-and-ready use of handheld and body-mounted cameras. It flows well, with economic character set-up before it all kicks off. It ratchets up the tension and offers some wonderful set piece action scenes at regular intervals.
It's not particularly knowing or an attempt to take action in a new direction but what it is is absolutely solid. However, it is a bold move to keep the original language (for what it's worth)…
I haven't watched this since the weekend it was released into theatres, and time has definitely lead me to appreciate the film way more than I did when I initially saw it. Forgiving the fact that the film at times has some terrible cg, and some less than desirable digital cinematography, I would say that this film is a visual treat. The jaguar scene is absolutely mind blowing, and the sense of excitement in the film is on another level. It is pretty mind boggling that this, a graphically R rated film, featuring an ancient language and subtitles, could make 120 million at the box office. I honestly have a hard time even seeing a film like this being made in the current cinematic world.
This movie is fucking awesome! I'm the biggest, most self-centered dickhead that ever walked the surface of the Earth for giving this masterpiece a 4/5 a few years ago. I should eat a tapir's balls sack for my imbecility. Justice has been done!
Apocalypto is a thrilling, visceral film that manages to overcome many action movie tropes. The Mayan world is fully realized in this film, mostly due to the excellent set design, costumes, and makeup. The lush jungles feels real. Apocalyptpo also manages to find a great balance between emotion and intense action, making the thrilling sequences even more hard-hitting. Mel Gibson proves himself yet again as a great director, of a great film.
I appreciated the film on a spectacle level - it was captivating to watch. I saw the ending coming but I still liked how it played out. I totally didn't trust the gaze, however, and felt a lot of baggage as a viewer as a result.
After The Jesus Chainsaw Massacre poor crazy Mel thinks we want to see abunch of action cliches running around the jungle. Go back to Malibu Mel.
Another movie that I had watched a little bit of nearer when it was first released, and wrote it off after twenty or so minutes as something that I would hate. I went into it expecting an epic adventure, and instead got a scene that seemed like it was ripped out of an Adam Sandler movie involving a chilli and a penis. After that I turned it off, proclaiming it was just another silly movie from Mel Gibson.
If only I had stuck around a little longer, then I would have gotten the grand adventure I had wanted. I returned to it after hearing some praise about it being one of the greatest action movies of recent years, and I'm…
Mel Gibsons fjärde spelfilm som regissör är förlagd till 1500-talets Mayarike, under conquistatodernas kolonisering av Amerika. Äventyret utspelar sig under ett intensivt dygn, då den mesoamerikanske mannen Jaguar Paw och hans stam blir attackerade av krigare som använder mänskligt blot för att blidka sina solgudar. Väntat våldsamt, snyggt och mycket spännande.
I Like 2006's Apocalypto, I Like It Because My Mom Kelli Krajci Saw This Movie On IFC One Time.
You know everything people say about Gibson's Passion of the Christ? Well in my book, apply it to this film instead.
It's all bullshit. It's painfully long and boring, terribly edited, the humor is terrible, it takes so fucking long to get going, Gibson's direction in this is surprisingly terrible, acting is dull and it is disgustingly violent.
And I know that makes me sound like a pussy but hear me out: I have no issue with violence in film, when done right. The violence in films like "Drive", "127 Hours" or "The Departed" I can handle cause it's done well, it has a purpose on the story, it fits it. This? This is pointless. And if you're going to…
I dont know what I think of this one, its epic, has relatively impressive SFX, the "bad guys" are scary as hell, but I really dont know why it just feels so... Confused and disjointed..
I have no idea why this movie was even made, I like it, but it just feels like 10.000 BC mixed with Passion of the Christ - dull dialogue, "cool" moments that really have no point other than to develop our feelings for certain characters - which is ok - BUT THIS GOES ON FOR ABOUT THE ENTIRE MOVIE! The way it reminds me of Passion of The Christ is the abnormaly long scenes of violence, for example the village massacre at the start of…
The mother of all Epic's! Non stop action and thrills that will leave you gasping for air! Stunning visuals!
Riveting drama that grabs you by the jugular and won't let go! A visceral masterpiece!
Well paced and interesting to look at but good god Mel Gibson is a sadistic mother fucker. You can almost see the screen being nudged forward by his erection when people’s heads and limbs are being hacked off or when the hero goes rolling around in a mass grave. Also, to create a sinister tribal feeling he had some dude go “Pahhhhh…." and "Duhrrrrrrr…" on the score over and over and it’s really annoying and stupid.
