I thought the History books said that the Mayans were an advanced civilization as opposed to a bunch of brutal bloodthirsty savages. No? This movie sure does try quite hard to shock and excite you but I don't think it works out on that front. However, visually, the movie is a real feast for the eyes. Mel Gibson is a hell of a filmmaker in that regard. It's really too bad that Mel Gibson got so much bad press for his personal life and remarksbecause he's quite gifted behind a camera lens. This movie really needed to be seen on the big screen to be fully appreciated. It just doesn't translate well to your home television. It really succeeds in making you feel that you are there.
