Mel Gibson has been previewing a ‘work in progress’ version of his epic Mayan adventure film Apocalypto, which will be distributed by Disney. Attendees at sci-fi conventions and film festivals were treated to a screening and word from at least one person who saw it is good.
once the characters were delineated and the action started rolling, I
was stuck knee-deep in the movie, entirely fascinated by where it was
taking me. It’s a unique, challenging, visually beautiful and
harrowingly violent piece of filmmaking — and I definitely look
forward to seeing the movie again, once it’s been polished in
post-production and trimmed down just a bit.
Sounds good. There is a more spoiler filled review at Cinema Strikes Back.
