Alex Remington: Apocalypto: Mel Gibson's Insane Triumph, a Triumphant ...
When it comes to Mel Gibson, it's hard to separate the man from his work. When most people think of him now, they think of two things: his anti-Semitic ravings one night, and The Passion of the Christ .

At least there were a few truisms in this article:
"When it comes to Mel Gibson, it's hard to separate the man from his work. When most people think of him now, they think of two things: his anti-Semitic ravings one night, and The Passion of the Christ (both of which South Park memorialized in the award-winning "The Passion of the Jew")...
It's hard to understand how $40 million ever got greenlighted to make this movie -- for Heaven's sake, it's shot entirely in the Yucatec Maya dialect -- and if The Passion hadn't grossed half a billion dollars, this movie would never have happened...
the movie weathered a fair amount of criticism on grounds of historical inaccuracy and political incorrectness..."
"director applying his love of violence...."
Like the author said, it's hard to separate the man from his work.

I DONT SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST. WE CANT DO FOR THAT JEWS ALWAYS THINK OF THEMSELVES EVEN WHEN ITS NOT ABOUT THEM.
THEY ARE JEALOUS OR WHAT?
HIS LOVE OF VIOLENCE? DUDE ITS HIS LOVE OF HISTORICAL ACCURACY WE ARE TLAING ABOUT HERE.
IT WAS LARGELY OVERDRIVED BY THE CRITIC NOT BY MEL GIBSON AND WERE YOU WAKEUPING EARLIER YOU WIL KNOW THAT SEVERAL CRITIC AGRESSING THAT MOVIE FOR ITS ALEGATED VIOLENT SCENES HAD NOT SEE THE MOVIE
AT ALL, AND FROM YOUR COMMENT I CAN SEE YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE..
GLADIATOR IS 100 TIMES MORE BLOODY AND VIOLENT THAN APOCALYPTO.
THE MOVIE ABOUT JEANNE OF ARC FROM JEAN LUC BESSON, IS 1000 TIMES MORE VIOLENT THAN APOCALYPTO, AND WE CAN KEEP ON LIKE THAT.
AS FOR MEL FINANCING HIS OWN WORK OF ART, THATS WHAT REAL ARTIST AND GENIUS DO, AND MEL GIBSON IS THE ALONE ONE ALIVE OTDAY IN THE CINEMA BUSINESS.
BUT I CAN SEE THAT THE GUY WHO WROTE THAT WAS VERY VERY JEALOUS THAT MEL GIBSON DARE (OH NO!) MAKE THOSE MOVIES AND IN WORSE (OH NO) WAS SUCCESSFULL IN IT AND HAD SEEN RIGHT WHICH ALOS CARACTERISE A TRUE ARTIST.
YOU SAW WRONG, TOO BAD FOR YOU BUT WE DOTN CARE AS YOU ARE INSIGNIFICANT, WHILE MEL GIBSON IS A MAJOR ACTOR IN MOVIE AS WELL AS IN HISTORY: HE HAPPEN TO MAKE BOTH HAPPEN.
AS REGARD TO THE ACCUSATIONS OF ANTISEMITISME NO PROVE HAS EVER BEEN FOUND WHO COULD SHOW IT FOR A FACT. ALL YOU HAVE IS A FAKE EXTRACT FROM A DUI REPORT PUBLISHED BY AN ANONYMOUS TABLOID IN DESPERATE NEED TO SAVE ITS BUSINESS.
THAT REPORT WAS PROVEN FAULSE, BUT YOU RETARDS DIDNT FOLLOW.
I SEE NO REASON TO SEPARATE THE MAN FROM HIS WORK, AS THE MAN IS PERFECT AND SO IS HIS WORK!
WHATS YOUR PROBLEM WITH THE GUY EXACTLY?
DONT TELL ME ITS ANTISEMITSM I HEARD YOU DONT KISS JEWS.
AND DONT PRETEND ITS VIOLENCE, YOU JUST PRETENDED TO HAVE WATCHED THAT TMOVIE. IF YOU PAID FOR IT, THEN YOU MUST ENJOY SEING THAT KIND.
THE MOVIE APOCALYPTO CONTAINED ZERO HISTORICAL INACURRACY, AND ITS ALWAYS FUNNY TO SEE A JOURNALIST TRYING ITSELF AT ACTING LIKE A WISE GUY FILL WITH ALL KIND OF SPECIAL INSIDER KNOWLEDGE, THAT HE MUST FEEL TOO HIGH TO SHARE WITH US, SINCE HE DONT GIVE ONE SINGLE EXPL OF THE IDIOTIES HE ACCUSED MEL GIBSON OF, WHEN THEY ARE IN FACT NOTHING MORE THAN PARROTS, WHO READ ELSE WHERE THAT THERE WAS HISTORICAL INACURACIES BUT DIDNT BOTHER FOUNDING OUT WHAT, AND VERIFY IF IT WAS TRUE..
MEL GIBSON MADE THAT MOVIE WITH 3 PROFESSORS IN ARCHEOLOGY AND HISTORY, FROM DIFFERENT UNIVERSITIES, SPECIALISED IN THAT PERIOD OF THE MAYAN EMPIRE, WHO WHERE WITH HIM WHILE HE WROTE THE ENTIRE SCRIPT, AND ONE OF THEM WAS WITH HIM ON THE SET, AND WAS HIRED TO CONTROL THE HISTORICAL PARTS DURING ALL THE TIME OF THE SHOTING OF THE MOVIE!
MEL GIBSON HAD ALSO ON THE SET A WOMAN PROFESSOR SPECIALISED IN THE CULTURE AND ART OF THE MAYAN AND AZTEC DURING THAT PERIOD OF TIME.
SO THOSE WHO COMPLAIN CAN SEND IT TO THE UNIVERSITIES CONCERNED, AND HAVE A PERSONAL MEETING WITH THOSE VARIOUS NOTORIOUS PROFESSORS IN THEIR FIELDS OF EXPERTISE, TO TEACH THEM HOW MUCH MORE THEY KNOW THAN THEY DOES, AND POINT AT THEM WHERE THEY WERE WRONG.
OR BEING PROVEN WRONG...
AS FOR POLITICAL INCORRECTNESS, FOR THE FIRST, F THAT, AND SECOND WHO GIVES A SH-IT? THIRD, WHAT THE HELL DOES THIS RETARD MEAN BY THAT?
AND 4TH WE GOT OBAMA AS PRESIDENT WITH BUSH'S OLD ARMY OF PINGUINS, ALSO CALL ADVISERS, BEHIND IT, SO HOW MUCH MORE POLITICALY INCORRECT IS THIS HUH? AND SAD, BUT TRUE, ITS NOT EVEN A (GOOD) MOVIE!:( SNIFF!ITS REALITY IN AMERICA TODAY!
THIS ARTICLE AND JOURNALIST ARE LIKE A BALLOON, IT SHOW OFF A LOT BUT DONT NEED MUCH TO SEEZLE AWAY LIKE AN ABORTED FART!
GEEZ! AND IT STINCKS TOO! YUCK!

Ooh, a quote of Mel's when a professor challenged Mel's version of history. Poor Mel resorted to expletives 'cause he couldn't bring himself to simply say, "That's true."

hmm since what you just said will be part of history , and that you just made that one up, then I will say that your expl refer to your own life and experience. You dumped.
I can see that the rest was far too challenging and deep for you to can answer it.
You stinck too. Did you wash, this year?
