Apocalypto

Ok, first of all, this film is great. It'll grab you and hold on for two hours and never let you go. It's bloody and violent. Very bloody and violent. The only thing I'm confused about is how this Mel Gibson produced movie was promoted as this high tone special insight into the Mayan culture. Baloney. We learn nothing about the Mayans, and the movie is the equivalent of Rambo Without Firearms. Except it's better than Rambo (actually named First Blood.)
