Just watched this flick in the home-theater and really enjoyed it.. It was definitely more of a popcorn adventure flick than I expected it to be but it still was visually über-grand and the story was gripping from start to end. Can't recall seeing any other movies about the Mayan civilization - definitely not on this scale anyway.. Some scenes were completely horrific.. Which is a good thing! I guess Mel has been doing other things aside from driving drunk and jew-bashing lately.. Cue The Gloat with some kinda negative response..
