i saw this on sunday.
mel gibson is one troubled man.
but entertaining nonetheless.
sick. yes. fucked. yes. ridiculous. yes.
a bit unimaginative and ropey at times, but it had some good points.
But it's as mad a box of frogs. And you do fear for Gibson's sanity (assuming that he's not already a screaming whacko).
a bag of cats.
an absolutely awful film it is.
by how much I enjoyed it.
especially when all those heads were cut off and rolled down the Mayan temple.
It was one great big thrill ride. The last 40 minutes were incredibly cheer-inducing, especially the bit where your man clocks that evil henchman around the head with a baseball (or whatever the equivalent of a baseball bat was in Mayan times). Its best quality was how visceral it was, it could work just as well as a silent movie.
Any wrath of God moments?
but have, as yetr, not watched it. I started it one day and though, nah, can't be bothered. Should I persevere?
