A is for…………Apocalypto. Mel Gibson’s stunning film about the attempted enslavement of a Mayan tribesman and his subsequent escape didn’t receive the recognition it deserved. Don’t let the subtitles put you off, the language used actually adds to the authentic atmosphere created. It was my favourite film of 2007 and has earned a place amongst my all time greats. Check it out as soon as you can, you won’t regret it.
This was a great film. I enjoyed it very much, especially Gibson's attention to cultural detail.ReplyDelete
It blew me away Melissa, I left the cinema in awe of it.ReplyDelete
Never seen it, I should check it out :)ReplyDelete

Hi Ricky. I've never seen this movie. Thanks for the info.ReplyDelete
ps: Thanks for the follow, too.
My one stop shop to find out what some good movies are doing out there and what people think! The film Devil just caught my eye to the sidebar and I must see what you think! I've heard interesting reviews!ReplyDelete

agree with you here, Ricky. Despite his obvious flaws Mr Gibson knows how to make an exciting movie.ReplyDelete
I've never even heard of this movie . . . I guess I should go check it out! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the comments guys. Those of you that haven't seen or heard of Apocalypto please let me know what you think if you do get round to seeing it.ReplyDelete
Michael, I'm glad you agree. Last years Golden Globe awards was hilarious when Ricky Gervais walked out with a beer in his hand and said "What? I like a drink as much as the next man....unless the next man happens to be Mel Gibson" and on walked a rather uneasy Mel Gibson.
Did anyone else think the very end was yet another example of Mad Mel's pro-Christian propaganda? Or am I the only one?ReplyDelete
I didn't read that into it Skin, I just saw it as a fantastic film.ReplyDelete
