Apocalypto 2006 10 out of 10
Brilliant ---Brutally Violentand Powerful.Iwas really surprised by how much I liked this film.I thought it was the best film in 2006.--- and it probably should have won the Oscar if Mel Gibson –the films director hadn't gone all drunken nazi-style during the summer.The film used many elements from many other films –and was typical of several previous Gibson flicks –like The Patriot and Braveheart. ----So although it wasn't completely original ---it happened to burrow the right elements of the films it burrowed from.The story was great—the cinematography was beautiful---and it was a wild ride.Epic –Gibson should continue to tell war stories from all of history.It had exactly the type of bloodyaction that inspires my current projectof the Pineappleman's stories
