Apocalypto (2006) Blu-ray: A masterwork from Mel Gibson

Samuel Goldwyn Films is re-issuing director Mel Gibson’s brilliant cinematic achievement, Apocalypto (2006) on Blu-ray. Stars Rudy Youngblood.

The Mayan kingdom is at the height of its opulence and power but the foundations of the empire are beginning to crumble. The leaders believe they must build more temples and sacrifice more people or their crops and citizens will die. Jaguar Paw (Rudy Youngblood), a peaceful hunter in a remote tribe, is captured along with his entire village in a raid. He is scheduled for a ritual sacrifice until he makes a daring escape and tries to make it back to his pregnant wife and son.

Pathologically brilliant. It is bizarre, stomach-turningly violent and frequently inspired.

The combination of story, action, excellent costume and makeup and solid performances by the hitherto unknown cast makes for a film that will have broad appeal.
