I loved this film.. If you read any reviews, they usually bash it.. But I dont think they are really appreciating where this film is coming from.. One of the most common complaints about it is the brutal violence depicted.. For me, the violence is needed to show how things were done by these people, and it really givesa sense of urgency to the action.. Its hard to understand a characters fear when the bad guys arent really that bad.. Also the scenery is absolutely stunning, and to get the most out of it, you need the Blu-Ray version to show off all of the beautiful colours and details found within the landscapes.. Audio on the Blu-Ray version is also excellent. If your into action flicks, dont mind subtitles (the whole film is in Mayan, which for me is excellent as I find you lose immersion when a foreign character starts speaking with a perfect American accent), and also dont mind a bit of brutal violence, then get this film. For me, its one of my favourites.
I watched this movie as it was loaned to me (on normal DVD). I watched it with my 75 year old mum and we both really loved it. So fast moving and full of action. Also very interesting. Like the other reviewer I agree with all they have said. It's truely a great movie and the subtitles won't put anyone off – I think you could watch the film with none and still follow the story. I've just ordered the Blu Ray copy for a friend and eagerly await its arrival. High recommend watching. If I'd seen it in the shops I probally wouldn't have even considered buying it as it looks like a ‘Guy’ movie, but it really is amazing!!!!
