Abridged Book Description

As with both Braveheart (1995) and The Passion of the Christ (2004), Apocalypto engages its audience with a combination of out-and-out melodrama and bone-crunching and bloody violence... Gibson handles the spectacle of the whole thing with confidence. The jungle is presented, through some beautiful cinematography, as a lush and believable paradise, and the villagers who inhabit it are wholly sympathetic.
