Hey all, I just saw this movie on DVD last night and wanted to see what everyone thought about it. I personally give it a B+, but to be honest, the subtitles I had to read instead of simply getting to watch it in English (though the native language was a nice experience) was a little annoying.


Thoughts, anyone?

I haven't seen it but it doesn't look too good in my opinion. What's it about anyway? By what I've heard some tribe dude saves his family in a fight with another tribe or something like that

That about sums it up.. It's OK if you like action movies, but that's about it. I simply happen to like the Aztec/Mayan stuff and saw it at Blockbuster and picked it up.

it is [Expletive Deleted], your rating is too high in my oponion

it wanted to be brutal and violent, but it was a softy from this point.
it tried to show how barbaric that age was. Well, didnt do to good job in that either.

Realism?

no, a guy gets an arrow into his lungs and still can evade 5-6 full healthy warrior, can run from a panther, then after he saves her wife, he meets with the europians. Holy cow that is a story for sure. :P

I don't mean to resurrect topics, but...

*uses some Krath magic he learned from his time in the Order*

I enjoyed Apocalypto, though didn't like the fact that Mel fired a historian because he told him the entire story was wrong. Mel was going for Mayan's fighting Mayan's, and the Historian said the Ritual Sacrifice and Gods thing, actual ritual for the God that is, was more Aztec, and Mel got all angry and upset and just fired the historian.

For action and violence, awesome movie. Plot, decent, but overall an ok movie.
