Best action film from last year

I believe this was the best action film of 2006, and it deserved a lot more attention than it got.

It has more bloody deaths than the overrated Oscar-winner, 'The Departed'. It has more frantic fast-paced action then that horrendous crapfest that was 'Crank'. The cinematography was on par with the Oscar-winner 'Pan's Labyrinth. The costume design should've won an Oscar rather than... read more

Mel Gibson.... Action!

I must agree with Midnight's review, as well as Prelude76's.

This film is excellent, despite all those violent scenes. I've stomached quite a few violent films, but this one particularly affected me more. I can handle violence but gross, no. (Apocalypto is *not* gross.)

It IS unfortunate that the movie is subtitled, but then again, so was Mel Gibson's the Passion of t... read more

I was a bit surprised with this film. Not in the sense that I thought it would be horrible and found out it was stunning instead. No. I was surprised because I thought it would be far more violent. I'd heard from several places/people that it was a very violent film. I didn't find it that violent. In saying that, if you aren't used to violence I wouldn't recommend watching it while eating, it's ju... read more

“Apocalypto is a brilliant movie, the story the acting which is more about the action than words, and scenery breathtaking. Rudy Youngblood who plays Jaguar Paw the character at the center of the story, did a brilliant job. I really loved the story, which is about the so called fall of the mayans through the eyes and story of Jaguar. Jaguar's tribe is killed and most of the people taken as slaves, and are taken to a massive mayan empire. Jaguar has left his pregnant wife and child behind in a well, and all he wants his to save them. Who cares if this is not historicaly right, who cares that Mel Gibson directed it. This movie is very good, and one worth watching it is a really beautiful brutal story.” read more

Apocalypto

“The movie was well filmed, on a great location, with fantastic backdrops, and is Mel Gibson accurate on all accounts? No, but directors and cinematographers must make changes and put in their montages what they see as a visual story.

A small tribe being abducted to be sacrificed did indeed happen in the time of the film 1517 & 1518 the Post Classical Maya period. Even though it was the Aztecs who were the strongest in the time portrayed by the film, "they 'the Mayas' were close allies of the Aztecs, they shared ideas and religion; and there were trade routes throughout Mesoamerica.' (Adams,1998)

Were there all kinds of sacrifices going on? Yes, the Mesoamericans were going through all kinds of bad prophecies, such as the hundred year drought and there had been very litt” read more

Crazy Urban Legends (8 movies items)

"In Mel Gibson's 2006 intense action movie Apocalyto, it is said that this one frame appears in one of it's infamous scenes where our protagonist finds himself surrounded by a bloody pile of bodies whilst being chased by some Mayan guards. Is it true? Yes it is. Mel Gibson loves jokes like these but this wasn't very well received given the films extremely intensifying atmosphere. The frame is that of a fictional character named Waldo from Where's Waldo? Seems like we found him..."

300 From The First Decade Of The New Millennium (300 movies items)

" 25 years earlier, Mel Gibson starred in one of my favorite chase movies ever as the Road Warrior. Two & half decades later, he's in the driver's seat of another chase film, but this time as the director instead of the star & instead of a post-apocalyptic future of the Outback, it's set in the pre-Colombian era of the Mayan civilation. And almost as exciting & suspenseful as it was to watch a bad-ass Mad Max speeding a gas-semi tanker down a dusty road with a gang of S&M Rock 'N' Rolla disciple"
