Bought this for a little cheaper and still haven't seen it. Over a year now? It's in the unopened pile which is a little too big for my liking. Heat.

tis a good film.

From memory, I'd agree.

Great movie

Great movie.

I know Mel Gibson is a nutcase, but this is a brilliant film. Heat from me.

Brilliant film, and the Blu-Ray transfer is amazing.

Good film, better than I expected. Blu-ray transfer is supposed to be nice too.

good mooovie

I blame the Jews for this low low price

Apackofcrapto IMO.

Great film - perfect double bill is to watch this then follow up with Terrence Mallick's The New World.

Great Film, Gibson is really a talented director, it's just a shame he did the big Hollywood no-no in his drunken rants. He's been blacklisted whilst a convicted paedophile on the run gets standing ovations... Hollywood's priorities are seriously messed up.

But yeah just ignore that rubbish and enjoy the film for being one of the best chase films in a long long time.

I agree with abigsmurf.

In Hollywood (or the media in general) drugging and sodomizing a minor is forgivable, as are most types of bigotry; but any allegations of anti Jewish sentiment (whether true or not), is the instant kiss of death. Mel Gibson also made a drunken rants about 'n*ggers', but compare the prominence in the media about that compared to his comments about Jews.

Personally, I don't believe he is a real racist. I mean how many liberal white people can honestly say they have never made a bigoted comment in their lives? I agree with Whoopi Goldberg (who apparently knows him very well) who said he is a 'bonehead', not a racist.

He is definitely a talented director, though I found 'The Passion of the Christ' quite bizarre how he passed off some gay S&M / snuff movie as a promotion of Christianity.

Or The Emerald Forest
(Not heard of The New World, will investigate).

Tree of Life is the Colin Farrel film that came out a few years back that was completely misunderstood by critics. It's essentially a re-telling of the Pocahontas story and of the first colonisers of America. It literally picks up where Apocalypto ends (which in my mind is one of the best endings in history). Tonally completely different to Gibson's film, as is expected from Mallick, but hauntingly beautiful.

Now I'll follow your recommendation and look up Emerald Forest

Or The Emerald Forest 8)(Not heard of The New World, will investigate).

It's really good. Stars Charlie Boorman as a kid and his Dad is director

Probably too intelligent for your liking.... not enough explosions perhaps? (_;)

Heat, for an excellent film...

stunning film .... not for the squeamish or those that can`t read, but a simple story told really well.

Ordered from playtrade - there is a seller there for £4.99 + free delivery ( new and sealed) if you want to save a few more pennies.

Second half was much better, either that or I was in a different mood when I decided to finish watching it.

Mel Gibson may well be an ******** in his pribvate life but he really does know how to put together an excellent film, and this is one of his best, stunning scenery & brilliant acting, totally believable.
Well worth it at this price.
Treat yourself, you'll not be sorry.

Loved it and one of the best on blu ray
