Early (Positive) "Apocalypto" Reactions!

by | September 25, 2006 | Comments

Hello from Texas, Tomato-readers! Just because I’m down here covering the Fantastic Fest in Austin, that won’t stop me from delivering the RT News! And get this: Mel Gibson showed up last night to show us what "Apocalypto" looks like!

Here’s a snippet of my own reactions, as published at Cinematical.com: "I dug the flick. Quite a bit, actually. The movie takes a little getting used to — we open with a group of hunters chasing, catching and disassembling a wild tapir — but once we get into the heart of the story, Apocalypto turns into one of the more intriguing action/adventure epics of the past few years: A peaceful forest village is attacked and brutally ransacked by a more "civilized" group of Mayan warriors, and there is much horrific violence before the village’s strongest men are captured as slaves."

Click here for more. And then check out a whole bunch of other reactions here, here, and here.

"Apocalypto" (the finished version) hits theaters in early December.
