 Saw it. It went to No. 1 at $14 million. Good reviews generally.
I thought it was a brilliant but brutal masterpiece. My brother thought it was a ham fisted bloodfest.

Heard one reviewer say he thought it could have used an NC-17 rating due to the violence and that some people were walking out of the theater.  He still thought it was a good movie but could have been done as effectivlely without all the gore.

And I wished for guidance, and I wished for peace
I could see the lightning; somewhere in the east
And I wished for affection, and I wished for calm
As I lay there - Nervous in the light of dawn

  ^ I know, Mel Gibson meets Oliver Stone ( who often uses shock and violence to "wake the masses up"). Don't watch it if you have a weak stomach.

I would like to see it but hope it is better than Passion of the Christ or whatever it was called...

Every movie Gibson directs is filled with gore and blood letting. Must have something to do with that kooky religious sect he belongs to. I find him tedious.

I've ignored Mel Gibson ever since he started sounding like Fred Phelps, which was years ago.

- Here's a six minute chase sequence of the movie I found On YouTube ( it's been flagged for " mature viewers only " so only people with a YouTube account can access it ) :

*  Does anyone associate the Mayan prophecy of the "Turning Of the Ages" in 2011, or is it 2012, with what this film was trying to get across ?
