APOCALYPTO -- The Official Movie Website

After seeing Passion of the Christ, I do not trust Mel Gibson with my attention. I think P ot C was an irresponsible movie. I was depressed for a week. I still don't know how I feel about the movie. I just filed it in one of those mental boxes of things you don't really know what to do with.

As if that wasn't enough, he's been saying weird things on TV and looking like a general crackhead. I haven't really kept up so I'm sure I don't know the whole story.

I'm not sure what this movie is really about. What I do know is that it is in a Mayan tongue so I'll have to read subtitles... again. It's probably going to be about the end of the world like a book I read (a looooong time ago) called the Mayan Prophesies???

Looks like the costumes might be cool. Other than that, I'm not sure what the hell this movie is about and why I'd want to see it.

After the disgusting THE WHIPPING OF THE CHRIST, I'm not sure that I really want to watch another movie directed by Mel Gibson. "Not another torture flick", y'know?

So I'll just let some poor critic watch it first, and see if she survives the ordeal...

But seriously, you should be okay. The Mayans didn't whip or crucify each other (how this must have frustrated Mel!)...

Well, the Mayan might have done human sacrifice. (or was that they Aztecs?)
Maybe all of that primal, tribal "savagery" turns him on. Who knows with this guy.

I agree. I'll let some of my other scifi friends check it out. If they say go, I'll go.
