Infuse The Last of the Mohicans with the bloodlust of 300, and you have Apocalypto, Mel Gibson’s thrilling tale of one man’s footrace through savage pre-Columbian Mexico to save his family. The subtitles don’t detract from Gibson’s sharp, visual style, and a fresh-faced cast resurrects the captivating ancient Mayans. EXTRAS Passion of the Christ director Gibson may revel in torturous violence, but he says in a commentary that the human sacrifice scene could’ve been worse. Think handless, footless, and, eww, skinless: ”We’re letting you off light, folks.” B+
