APOCALYPTO
2006, Buena Vista Pictures Distribution, 139 min, USA, Dir: Mel Gibson

The decline is near for the Mayan civilization. Jaguar Paw (Rudy Youngblood) lives a peaceful existence in the jungle, which is brutally interrupted when barbaric Mayans pillage his village and he is captured for sacrifice with many of his fellow tribesmen. Determined to take back his ancestors’ way of life, he makes a harrowing and bloody escape in director Mel Gibson's kinetic, gore-filled spectacle. Taking cues from THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME and THE NAKED PREY, among other "survival of the fittest" chase films, Gibson crafts a truly apocalyptic action masterpiece. In Yukatek (Mayan) with English subtitles.
