    Everyone is racist.
    I'll be checking the movie out regardless.

    The film puts you right in the action.....it immerses you in the tribal history of that time, and helps you to understand how civilizations that grow strong and proud can still destroy themselves from within, it was very well done. Mel Gibson may have some personal problems that he needs to work on , but they have not stopped him from putting in good work. I don't know Mel personally so i cant pass judgment as to whether he is a racist or not. I judge a person i don't know , by the work that he/she brings forth, and Mel's last 3 films are all blockbusters and a monumental display of what film making is all about!

    There is more to the movie then looks, ever heard of substance? or that old quote, "don't judge a book by its cover".

    lol you gotta be kidding me right? Just because he said something about jews that he didn't even really mean, you won't see the movie? Whatever floats your boat I guess.


    Anyway, for sure I'll be seeing Apocalypto, looks tight as hell.

    Helllooo... I know everyone is racist... but considering he blatantly shows it publicly is what is wrong. Not that he is. I'm sure plenty of whites don't have black friends and vice versa, but they don't go out calling people out on it.

    I mean this is the same reason people dislike Tom Cruise. He preaches Scientology to everyone, hello... I don't wanna join your church.

    To say you aren't offended basically publicly implies you yourselves might agree with Mel Gibson, which, is a bit scary considering I'm a minority myself. You can say the film and his opinions are two different things that have nothing to do with each other, but then again, would you watch a movie made by Hitler? Borat is a different on the case that he is Jewish, and he is making fun of antisemitic remarks from the likes of the Gibsons... hence comedy. But it's only my opinion.

    So I'm sorry if I offended anyone with my possibly ignorant comment. It was more out of emotion rather than logic.

    Awesome. That adds to the movie so much. I hate seeing movies based on another culture in english, or worse, dubbed english. If you see Shaolin Soccer or Kung Fu Hustle, bother are amazing movies in Chinese but if you watch them dubbed, they are so much worse. Maybe its just me but if youre going to goto that much trouble to make the movie in the first place might as well add in the correct language.

    What happened to America: Land of the free and home of the brave? You're making it sound like America: Land of no free-speech and home of little babies.

    I don't care who acts in a movie, in my opinion if the movie is good, it's good. I don't care who the cast is.

    Crono I don't know about Sweden, but in America free speech stops when you start to alienate any minority groups. I don't know if you can understand that, aren't all you guys white over there anyway? :p (sorry I had to...)

    I saw this movie. I'm sorry, but it was complete ****e, and if you liked it, well I'm sorry but you have aweful tastes in movies.

    Have you ever said something you later regret saying, sober or drunk? If you say no, your a liar, because we all have. if you say yes then your a hypocrite.
