My reaction:

the first time i saw the movie in our university library. i was filled with horror to see all the blood, i mean its bloody as hell! but it was good, no regrets at all, the director (Gibson) really put to end all stereotyping when he showed in his film the reality of life, the blood, body liquids and all real anatomy! i should say, another great film. a must see blockbuster, for the bloodthirsty there!.
The movie has a nice plot and story. so touching and brutal, whatever words i describe it. Jaguar paw, the protagonists, is so good, he's athletic build really made the film extraordinary., ive never seen anything like it.
