I never did see The Passion and I don't like Braveheart
but this...peaks my interest...along with Childrenof Men, I'll probably make this film on my December must see list.

Some clips of the movie.

Can't wait to see this. Why I took Latin American History. Plus My Moms side of the Family is from Guatemala, My Dad's Mom was from Guatemala. Plus it's the Mayans!

Why not be your own critic? I wouldn't immediately dismiss it just because others are. You might like it.

Blood Diamond does seem intriguing. Plus, it has Jennifer Connelly.

If it has Gibson's name working behind the scenes I'll be sure to watch it. As far as his anisemitic remarks, I couldn't care less he's not the president and can't affect me even if I were jewish.

Well I got back from the showing. Brilliant. Reminds me of a Terrence Malik Film. You will be suprised that its not as gory as the reviewers say it is.

I highly recommend it, put your differences aside on what you think of Mel. (Forgiveness is a big word) The language they spoke was beautiful also.

It's Violent out of a scale 1-10 I would say a 6. It's not as bad as the reviews put it out to be.
