Apocalypto no go

Based on what I've heard and read about the new Mel Gibson movie, Apocalypto, there's no way I'll see it. I can't stand watching arrows shot into people's bodies, hands hacked off by hatchets, heads being cut off, and hearts pulled out of chests. One reviewer calls it "unquestionably the most reprehensible, brain-dead and offensive movie I've seen all year." Another: "unpleasant, pointless, gruesome, and exploitative."

I'm ultra-sensitive to ultra-violence in movies, and it sounds like this one sets the bar at a new level. Sorry, Mel, it's a no-go for me.

It was really good. If you don't see it, then...I'll tell you to see it again.
