Wow.......Hats off to Mel Gibson & his Crew!!!! (Contains Spoiler)
I just came from the theater watching this film. I thought it was very good. There are lot of confusions going around Apocalypto thread. Firstly, the whole movie is about the main character and him getting together with his wife. The movie is based on Mayan culture, however, it is just the essence of the movie. Some people also complain about too much chasing going on in the film and needs to be cut short. I did not think at all. It was very good and the camera did not shake too much and there were breath taking scene's. The movie is long however it did not bored me at all. The beginning of the movie was excellent where it starts of chasing a pig. Another thing I liked is when the village gets captured, Mel Gibson did not focus too much on rape scenes. Usually the directors go too much into those scenes and make it vulgar or think portraying it makes the movie more strong. This was excellent and the amount of violence you see in the movie is great as well.
When you compare the violence, it is nothing. Yea there is blood, but it is nothing compare to Saving Private Ryan. There is no movie I saw that comes close to SPR. If you seen SPR or any other movie you think has more bloods and guts, you won't close your eyes at all. It all depends on your age wise and the amount of bloody movies you have watched in your life. As far as the sadness goes, I think Passion of The Crist had more tear jerking. This movie is a great adventure like movie where its about the main character and how he getting back to the family.
I would recommend everyone to go watch it. Its a great film. It is in Mayan language and you watch it through subtitle. It will not bore you and the subtitle goes slow with words. The action scenes are very good and I like the fact Mel Gibson did not use very much CGI affects, sort of like Matrix or Crouching Tiger and made it look very original. I wanted the movie to go little bit more, but like I said, its all about the main character getting back to his family. So make yourself free today and get your big butt to the theater and watch it with a big giant soda of Pepsi. Oh, somehow the freaking theater screen looked small. I wonder if its available on IMAX type screen. I might watch this again if I find out some other theater screen is bigger than what I saw. Other than that, I am definitely and anxiously waiting for the DVD to release with special edition versions.
The Passion of the Christ (2004)
Wow! What An Experience
Just watched the long waited "movie of the year" should I say? Well the performance were really great. This is the best Jesus movie ever told. It really does shows the sufferings of Jesus Christ. One might think, how in the world would he be still alive after taking all those beatings? When I went to the theater, almost everyone was weeping, some were quietly, some you can actually hear. I even shed down some tears, which I have done in very few movies. This movie dont tell the whole Jesus story, it focuses on what the title says "The Passion Of Jesus Christ", the last stage of his dying. I was amazed I did not had to read a whole lot of subtitles to understand what they were saying. Matterafact, their language sentence are more longer than English. The subtitle goes very slow, mixes well with their language. It gives you enough time to read and understand what they are saying. The movie is indeed bloody in its catogary. Do not compare this with any war movie or any action type movie, cause this is only one man who has been bloodied here and its his suffering story. You might want to give it a try even if you are not religious. I did not find it any racist
or hate towards anyone, just felt sad what he had to go through. Give it a try guys you will see what I am talking about. I think I am ready for a second show :)
LOC: Kargil (2003)
True Story, Bad Direction
If you have seen very less films, this might be a big one for you. If you have seen lot of films, this is a joke. The acting of real heroes is portrayed very badly. Not to mention, there are songs, there are lot of flashbacks, and most importantly, the fighting scenes are stupidily performed. New characters, good direction, would have done a better job, but since it contains all the bollywood heros/heroines, you can predict whats going to happen next. You do not feel sad when something happens, the emotions they protray is terrible, mainly because we have seen this actor in 1000 other hindi movies. It suppose to be a realistic movie, but it fails to show. There are times you wondering, you have thousands of army vehical filled with soldiers moving and the pakistanis are bombing at them and none of their bomb hits them. Are the pakis really bad at aiming or the director made them look stupid? There were only a few characters acting that was very good, but as far it is concerned with plot, action, it is poorly directed. This movie could have been short if they took out songs, flashbacks, stick to the point.
