Cinematical gives us first impressions of Apocalypto!

Cinematical's Scott Weinberg was able to attend an advance screening of Apocalypto in Texas over the weekend. After the movie was over, Mel Gibson and Rudy Youngblood took the stage to host a "rather illuminating" Q&A session. Remember, this was only an advanced screening of the movie...

"I wouldn't feel comfortable penning a full-bore review of Apocalypto, as the cut we saw was a workprint: It had "temp track" music, unfinished sound effects, incomplete special effects, and a few sequences that were bound for the cutting room floor. But the meat of the movie was still there, so I suppose it's cool to share a few early reactions..." [Read more here - warning: *spoilers*]

Without giving anything away, here's some things that Scott Weinberg had to say about Apocalypto:

"I dug the flick."

"Apocalypto [is] one of the more intriguing action/adventure epics of the past few years..."

"I was stuck knee-deep in the movie, entirely fascinated by where it was taking me."

"It's a unique, challenging, visually beautiful and harrowingly violent piece of filmmaking..."

"... the general reaction afterwards was pretty darn enthusiastic."

"...I overheard comments like "pretty damn awesome" and "a whole lot better than I expected..."

"I've no problem recommending the film when it hits your local multiplex. It's unique, it's epic and it's a pretty exciting thrill ride."

Now that's a very encouraging first review. Even more encouraging is the report that "about one-third of the full house gathered for the film gave him a standing ovation." [source.]
