Apocalypto Reviews

Apocalypto isn't simply an effective movie, but an immensely powerful one: a benchmark and a foresight seemingly all rolled into one.

Damn if the movie, through Mel's sheer determination, doesn't almost turn from a fight-n-flight gore fest into a moving meditation on a civilisation in the throes of decline. Almost.

Ignore Apocalypto's symbolic hubbub and instead view it for Gibson's perverse sense of entertainment. His passionate spectacle of human destruction and doom packs a terrific visceral punch.

Matt's Movie Reviews

Shot with digital camera on location in Mexico, Mel Gibson has created a visually stunning action/adventure epic that although has divided many with its historical accuracy, has spared no expense in bringing life to a world before European colonization.

All in all Apocalypto is probably Gibson's best film to date, because it's almost free of any of Hollywood's tainting.

The middle of the film, though, finds Gibson at his sadistic best, depicting monumental savagery with a surreal cinematic glee that puts the Apocalypse in Apocalypto.

If you can get past Mr. Gibson's public persona, Apocalypto is a good, solid action movie.

Apocalypto demonstrates two things: that Mel Gibson is a hell of a filmmaker and that his imaginative world borders on the Neanderthal.

Any Gibson-haters hoping to see the heart ripped out of his success may well find themselves disappointed by Apocalypto's relative merits.

Apocalypto is a strange but largely entertaining mix of action, bloodletting, chin-rubbing and arthouse trimmings.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

If any other director had made the spellbinding, visceral Mayan epic 'Apocalypto,' the film would be championed and unquestionably be discussed in Oscar worthy terms.

It's escapism - the world would be a lot safer if good and evil were so clearly defined - and it's something that Mel Gibson proves (once again) that he does very, very well in Apocalypto.

Mel Gibson propone una discutible aproximación a la civilización maya que es, ante todo, un intenso relato de acción y heroísmo.

To cut to the chase, there should be an NC-17 rating to describe the over-the- top violence in Apocalypto. But the strong of stomach will find an edge-of-your-seat, heart-pounding, technically amazing movie.

No matter what your interest is in the film -- entertainment or information -- Apocalypto delivers the goods, and then some.

Gostemos ou não de Mel Gibson, sua competência como diretor é inegável, assim como sua coragem em assumir projetos pouco convencionais.

Let me say at the start that, never having been a great Mel Gibson admirer, though liking a number of his movies, I think Apolcalypto is a remarkable achievement.

Whether (Mel Gibson's) films are in English, Latin, Aramaic or Yucatec, the real language is that of masculinity personified in the face of emotionless evil.
