Last night, Brad and I went to the movies. First we were going to see Night At The Museum, but we noticed the poster for Apocalypto and instantly changed our minds. And I am very glad we did. Going into it, I didn’t know exactly what to expect. But, as most Mel Gibson movies go… you’re always a bit surprised. If anyone has any extra cash, go and see this move. You won’t regret it.
Set in the Mayan civilization, when a man’s idyllic presence is brutally disrupted by a violent invading force, he is taken on a perilous journey to a world ruled by fear and oppression where a harrowing end awaits him. Through a twist of fate and spurred by the power of his love for his woman and his family he will make a desperate break to return home and to ultimately save his way of life.
“A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within.” -W. Durant
