Apocalypto (2006)

Mel Gibson’s follow up to ‘The Passion of the Christ’ is a far better film and, as far as chase movies go, I think criminally under-rated. At 139 minutes it should start to drag but, like its main character, it simply keeps driving forward and, despite what you think about Gibson the man, he certainly knows how to shoot a pretty picture. Though strictly speaking not an ‘end of the world’ movie, I don’t think there can be any doubt that in the films final moments our heros world, as he knows it at least, has ended.
