Academy Award® nominated Apocalypto brings to life, a world from the ancient past, never before seen on the modern screen. Shot on location in Catemaco - in one of the last remaining tracts of rainforest left in Mexico and with a cast of indigenous peoples from the Americas, Apocalypto is a beautifully vivid, detailed depiction of a long lost world.
As a civilization comes to an end an epic journey home will begin. When his idyllic existence is brutally disrupted by a violent invading force, Jaguar Paw (Ruby Youngblood) is taken on a perilous journey to a world ruled by fear and oppression where a harrowing end awaits him. Through a twist of fate and spurred on by the power of his love for his pregnant woman and son he will make a desperate break for freedom to return home and to ultimately save his way of life.
Set against the turbulent end times of a once great Mayan civilization, Apocalypto is a spectacularly delivered action thriller, with a gripping pace throughout that will leave you breathless. As Mel Gibson's fourth feature as director, Apocalypto is truly remarkable.
