I had the pleasure of seeing a sneak preview of Apocalypto last night and it was FANTASTIC. When this hits theatre's next week, be sure to see it! Mel Gibson never seems to dissapoint. He has directed another sure to be classic in my opinion.

Yes, the movie is very authentic. I'm glad Mel decided to use the old mayan language, makes the film that much better. The english subitles are very easy to follow. The second half of the movie you really are able to take in the beautiful visuals and the awesome camera work during the actinon scenes. Their is not a ton of diologue during these scenes, so you don't miss a thing.

  Both trailers I saw for Apocalypto looked really good so I'm looking forward to seeing Gibson's new movie.  I wonder if there will be any backlash from Gibson's comments he made earlier this fall like people boycotting his movie.

  Tucumcari, have you seen The Passion of the Christ and if so, what were your feelings about it?

Can't usually abide Gibson or his films as a director, but this does look quite superb from the trailers I've seen, and will be going to see it when it opens. It really does look like Gibson is showing us something we have never seen before.

The movie was origionally slated for a July release, perhaps it's had some post-production problems, never mind it's creator's own personal problems with the bottle?

Yes, I have seen The Passion of the Christ, and own the movie as well. I thinks it's a fantastic movie. It's just a soild, well crafted piece of cinema. Just watching this movie, and watching the way it was made, you can see right off the bat that Mel Gibson's calling is directing. If you haven't seen it, see it, just to enjoy great filmmaking if anything.

Saw this yesterday. Quite exciting, a non-stop actioner all the way. Costa Rica and other points south look lovely. The re-creation of Mayan culture is both amazing and disturbing. The plot requires a couple of incredible coincidences, but things move along so swiftly it is hard to get annoyed. So glad there were no "names" in the picture, it helps with our willing suspension of disbelief. I can just imagine what Lenny DiC3P0 would have done with a Mayan accent......

I guess the consensus now is that it's an unofficial remake of Cornell Wilde's The Naked Prey (1966).
