I must really be a self hating Jew to keep seeing Mel Gibson movies. Last time Sir Mel was being discussed in these parts was my 2004 list where I described Passion of the Christ as one of the worst movies I'd ever seen. I wrote, "Mel Gibson is a hack. Wow, this was a piece of shit. I thought I was watching Beastmaster or something along those lines. The epic music, the super slo-mo, the fog, everything was awful. The whole thing screamed out "epic" and obviously this is the epic to end all epics, but let the source material speak for itself without hitting the viewer over the head."
So I'm not quite sure why I wanted to see this one. I didn't like The Patriot either. But I liked this one. It is a fun action movie with a fun twist of an ending. There were elements of the really stupid heart ripping out scenes from Indiana Jones but I got over that when I marveled at how awesome it was to see head after head roll down the stairs into the screaming crowd.
This movie has got all any self-respecting Mel fan could want. It's got the homoeroticism, the extreme violence, the sadism. What else is there in life besides Jew-baiting in Mel's eyes?
Maybe one of these days I'll get around to seeing Braveheart.
