This review is from: Apocalypto [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
In my opinion the actual film is worth 5 star's on a normal DVD but the Blu-Ray experience make's this a must see movie.
Apocalypto is directed by Mel Gibson and is set in South America and explore's the mysterious culture of the Mayan. The scenery is simply stunning and the Amazon almost come's to life in your living room, this film really make's the most of the Blu-Ray technology.
The film is based on a young man named Jaguar Paw who's small, tight knit village is captured and destroyed. The men are to be made sacrifice for the Sun God and the women to be made slave's. JP's determination to get back to his wife and child lead him to a heart racing escape and chase back to his homeland's.
Even if you don't like reading subtitles during a film I would still recommend this movie, it's that good.
I take my hat off to Mel Gibson who is turning out to be a very able director.
