    I have the strange urge to play Colonization now. Or Gold of the Americas.

    It's a good chase film, just don't go expecting any in depth cultural analysis and you'll enjoy it.

    I saw this movie months ago, when it was still in the theaters.

    ...I still wish I'd miss it. I found the scenario silly enough to compare with the story-telling of a 5 y/o. I would fall asleep if I was watching it alone.

    bet all of you watched it with english sub titles didnt you....
    its different enough to be interesting, I watch two or three movies a day after work, and it does not compare with anything out there....
    well I have found that almost everyone I asked enjoyed the movie, sorry you all had to pay for it in the Theater and were disappointed.
    Different strokes....
    for different folks....

    Anyone here seen the movie "Apocalypto"???

    Weird man,and I mean weird.But dont waste youre $$$$ seeing it.Wait til you can see it fer free!My wife & I were down to the coast last week for a little R&R & I rented the thing on the hotel movie thingy....$11.00,blown to hell!I think I got through 30 minutes of it.If U wanna see a war movie.Go see the BEST war movie EVER made..."Patton"I could see that movie one time a week and NEVER get sick of seeing it.That man had so much wisdom.If we{the U.S. & the Brits-SCREW the French.} had listened to him,we would have kicked the Russians ass while we still had a standing army in Europe!DO NOT be foolish and think the Russian Bear has been de-fanged.Read the Revelation....pay close attention to the cities of Gog and Magog.

    Its not a bad movie....
    too many damn critics out there crapping on good movies because they arent in any particuler genre or popular...
    renting it might be an option.
    I bought it and i wasnt disappointed.

    *merged threads*

    I plan on seeing it at some point,probably add it to my rental list as a low priority or something like that. I've read lots of good, and an amount of bad, so I'll reserve judgement :)

    Well I've seen this movie twice and still can't figure out how Mel Gibson blamed the Jews for the fall of the Azteks. I'm sure it's in there somewhere perhaps a 3rd viewing will help :D

    Watched it last night and it was quite the epic movie. After watching the 'making of' in the bonus section, I appreciated the movie even more. All those extras and EACH costume was hand made!?! All that makeup was unique as well!?> Whew.. that's a lot of work. No special effects.. the city was really built. Not as violent as I imagined it to be with all the hub bub when it was first out.

    Reminded me a little of the movie Black Robe. That was pretty rough too.
