Saw Apocalypto last Thursday. Decent movie, but definitely does not live up to the hype. I guess this is because this is probably the first time a mainstream commercial movie has gory, gruesome scenes. But then, if I want to watch blood, gore, and human mutilation, I'd rather watch Cannibal Apocalypse - it's much more more entertaining. I got the feeling there was so much more that could be done for the movie, but wasn't. Mel Gibson seems to like scenes where organs are ripped out of live humans, and this is quite evident here.

Decent acting, almost realistic props and locales make it a watchable film, but don't go in with high expectations. And definitely don't take your girlfriend for this movie.
