This review is from: Apocalypto [DVD] (2006) (DVD)
There are many words to describe this offering from Mr.Gibson...Phenomenal, Immaculate, Sensational, Unbelieveable(which it was in places, literally), Gripping, Pulsating but ultimately relieving. The drama is nearly at break neck speed, sort of an Enemy of the State situation whereby there is no hiding place from your pursuers.
The graphic scenes are relevant but not for the squeamish and from the start the film indulges it's gore-fest theme. I for one am not a blood and guts addict but it added to the impending fate of those selected, albeit de-selected.
I'm normally critical of inconsistencies and as with every film a stretch of the imagination is required but so engrossing was the entire affair that miniscule or contrived sequences were set aside....
A remarkable and powerful delight.....Magnificent!
