Mel Gibson United States, 2006

J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Apocalypto

Mr. Gibson had some unbearable escapades which did not help to hold-up his image. To Gibson haters: if you are honest to yourself, you must admit that you love this movie; but you deny it. After several times of watch, I always feel the same: shocked & fascinated. This is about the end of all days caused by man; no matter if by Mayas or Spaniards or conquistadores. It is about greed & misuse of power. Masterpiece.
