Personal Comments:

This review is again quite outdated, since I saw this is in the cinemas a little bit after Christmas while my stay in Portugal. I had enormous expectations from this movie. Mel Gibson had made a huge movie out of “The Passion of Christ” and I had high expectations. It is indeed a huge movie which you should not lose the opportunity to see. Although there are no known actors, he really made it. The movie is so real, it makes you chill at moments… sometimes you really think you go back in time.
For those who had the opportunity to visit Chichen Itza, it is huge to see those structures on the movie and remember how they were in reality.

I had the luck to be there with a couple of friends in 2004.

Don’t miss Mexico if you have the chance to go there… and don’t fall off Chichen Itza… it’d not be a good experience!
