The Mayan kingdom is at the height of its opulence and power but the foundations of the empire are beginning to crumble. The leaders believe they must build more temples and sacrifice more people or their crops and citizens will die. Jaguar Paw (Rudy Youngblood), a peaceful hunter in a remote tribe, is captured along with his entire village in a raid. He is scheduled for a ritual sacrifice until he makes a daring escape and tries to make it back to his pregnant wife and son.

    I don't know if there is a better example of dedication in filmmaking out there than there is in Apocalypto. Brilliant, if overrated.

    Gibson's Mayan chase thriller may not fit everyone's tastes, but for those willing to lurk into the jungle, great thrills and action await.

    'Apocalypto' (2006) is a realistic and deep glimpse into ancient Mayan civilization. Without a doubt, it's shot at its best and goes to show you that big-headed Mel Gibson does have directing skills up his sleeves.

    Rent this -- don't buy it. That way you'll feel less digusted with yourself for seeing a Mel Gibson film. Otherwise, it's excellent.
