Oh yes I have watched it three time if you can imagine. I find this movie so interesting and addictive. I like the way Mel Gibson presented the development of humans. Remember the ship that was shown at the end? It was really brilliant.
Yes, its a bit violent but our history is violent so its unavoidable I guess. But the story is great and the movie is well made. Loved it.
If someone has not watched this movie I recommend that you see this movie once.
I watches this movie years ago, and I loved it. Even though some of the parts were gore, like the panther chase part.
It was a really good movie, though, with the storyline and portrayal of life at that time.
Despite his personal life, I think Mel Gibson is a great actor and a great director as well.
My husband brought this movie out when I was pregnant with my first child, and VERY emotional. I only got about 10 minutes in before I had an emotional breakdown, bawled my eyes out in my bedroom for about an hour and wouldn't come back to finish the watching the movie. I can't bring myself to attempt to watch it again, even without the pregnancy hormones.
I'm not one to usually shy away from violence (Romper Stomper was pretty violent and I liked that movie), but that movie was over the top in my opinion. Apparently it was well done though, as it got the message it was aiming for across.
I tried to watch it few times on HBO but couldn't continue mostly. But once did finish it and I must admit it that I liked it. Liked the part when the wooden spear thing went through the bad guy's chest in the end.....
All this talk makes me want to re-watch this movie. Probably within the week.
