Story


An action/adventure film set 600 years ago, prior to the 16th-century Spanish conquest of Mexico and Central America. The epic tale of the end of Mayan civilization. The title is a Greek term which means "an unveiling" or "new beginning."

From Academy Award® winning filmmaker Mel Gibson ("The Passion of The Christ," "Braveheart"), comes "Apocalypto": a heart stopping mythic action-adventure set against the turbulent end times of the once great Mayan civilization. When his idyllic existence is brutally disrupted by a violent invading force, a man 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 by the power of his love for his woman and his family he will make a desperate break to return home and to ultimately save his way of life.
