QUICK TAKE:
Drama/Action: A Mayan villager tries to make his way back to his pregnant wife and child while avoiding the warriors who kidnapped him and devastated their village.
PLOT:
Times seem good for 16th century Mayan villager Jaguar Paw (RUDY YOUNGBLOOD). When not hunting with his father Flint Sky (MORRIS BIRDYELLOWHEAD) and other villagers, including Blunted (JONATHAN BREWER) who's often the butt of others' practical jokes, he spends time with his pregnant wife, Seven (DALIA HERNANDEZ), and their young son Turtles Run (CARLOS EMILIO BAEZ).

Things change, however, when Holcane Warriors led by Zero Wolf (RAOUL TRUJILLO) invade their village, enslaving the adults they don't kill while leaving the children to fend for themselves. During the attack, Jaguar Paw manages to lower his wife and boy down into a deep hole for their protection, but is captured before being able to get them back out. Having nearly killed Snake Ink (RODOLFO PALACIOS) during the battle, he must then watch as the volatile warrior slaughters his father before everyone is marched off.

They eventually arrive in a large city where the captured are forced into slave labor or used as human sacrifices by the high priests. After some harrowing moments, Jaguar Paw manages to escape. He then tries to make his way back to his decimated village, all while contending with Zero Wolf, Snake Ink and other warriors who are hot on his trail.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens might be, but it's doubtful beyond that.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R

    HOW OTHERS RATED THIS MOVIE


    Curious if this title is entertaining, any good, and/or has any artistic merit?
    Then read OUR TAKE of this film.


    (Note: The "Our Take" review of this title examines the film's artistic merits and does not take into account any of the possibly objectionable material listed below).


    OUR WORD TO PARENTS:
    The following is a brief summary of the content found in this R-rated, action-filled drama. Brief profanity includes one subtitled use of the "f" word, while tribal Mayans are seen in loincloths and other standard attire (showing bare butts and the occasional, bare breasts). There's also some sexually related material (the result of a practical joke suggests a wife was performing oral sex on her husband who's seen fully nude with his hands over his crotch).

    Violence consists of people being killed by various means in battles, other fighting, animal attacks, and human sacrifices. Much of that has extremely bloody and/or gory results (including various decapitations), and those scenes and various moments of peril could be rather intense and suspenseful for viewers. The perpetrators of such violence and enslavement obviously have bad attitudes.

    Tense family material includes family members watching loved ones be murdered and worrying about those who've survived. Finally, some behavior may be enticing for some kids to imitate.

    If you're still concerned about the film and its appropriateness for yourself or anyone else in your home who may be interested in seeing it, we suggest that you take a closer look at our detailed listings for more specific information regarding the film's content.

    For those prone to visually induced motion sickness, a great deal of handheld camerawork (some if it very bouncy) occurs in the film.



    ALCOHOL OR DRUG USE
  • None.
  • BLOOD/GORE
  • The tribesmen chase a tapir through the jungle until it meets its bloody demise at a spring-loaded trap that impales the animal with several wooden stakes. They then cut it open, with one man giving others various organs (that we see in graphic detail). When he gets to Blunted, the man informs him of the delicacies of the "balls" and thus Blunted bites into one that's been handed to him, but starts to gag. That causes the others to break into laughter as it turns out it was a practical joke of sorts.
  • Jaguar Paw has a nightmare where he sees a stranger from before, standing in front of him with a wild look in his eyes and doing some heavy breathing. He holds one of his own bloody body organs (we also see a large and bloody incision in the top of his belly) and screams at Jaguar Paw to run.
  • Some villagers attacked or killed by the warriors are bloody, while Snake Ink goes over to Flint Sky and slits his throat (with a great deal of blood pouring out) just to spite Jaguar Paw. Snake Ink then strikes Jaguar Paw in the face, resulting in it being a bit bloody while some blood is also in his mouth.
  • Various captured tribesmen are bloody, with one having a large and bloody puncture hole in his side.
  • We see many dead and bloody villagers after the warrior attack on their village.
  • Turtles Run has a bloody leg wound.
  • Seeing his adult son's swollen eye, Zero Wolf cuts his face to relieve the pressure, with very bloody results.
  • Seven puts large ants, beetles or something similar on her son's leg wound, presumably to close the wound (seen in graphic close-up).
  • We see a girl with lesions on her skin.
  • One slave spits up some blood.
  • We briefly see a dead animal along the slaves' path.
  • We see a man covered in blood (presumably that of others).
  • We see paintings of bloodletting, including severed heads and such.
  • From a distance, we see a severed head bouncing down the steps of a pyramid. We then see many severed heads on the end up upright poles, followed by the view of another head bouncing down the steps, and then that of a basket of severed heads. Another head comes down the steps, and Zero Wolf slices his own palm as part of the ceremony (blood drips down from that).
  • We then see a more close-up view of the sacrificial ceremony where a slave's heart is cut out as he's held belly up on an altar. His head is then cut off and goes down the steps, followed by his headless body tumbling down the same (all seen in graphic detail). Another slave's heart is cut out, and his head is cut off.
  • A spear goes through a fleeing slave (in graphic detail), while another spear hits another man in the back of the head and comes out of his mouth (with bloody results), and an arrow hits Jaguar Paw. He manages to break off the arrow and then stabs a warrior in the neck with the arrowhead, with very bloody results.
  • Jaguar Paw runs through a cornfield to try to elude Zero Wolf and other warriors, only to stumble into an immense mud flat completely covered by muddy, headless bodies. He crawls across and through them to continue his escape.
  • Jaguar Paw has some blood on his hand and side from his wound, and a drop of that hits a leaf and then falls down onto Snake Ink's shoulder from above.
  • A jaguar viciously attacks a man (biting his face, etc.) until other warriors rush up and repeatedly spear the cat until it's dead (and bloody, just like its victim and his incredibly torn up face).
  • A large, poisonous snake suddenly lashes out and gets one warrior in the neck. The others know he's doomed, with one telling him he should kill himself before the poison takes effect. The wounded man then uses a dagger to slice deeply into his own forearm, with lots of blood coming out.
  • Realizing he has no option, Jaguar Paw races toward and then leaps off a very tall waterfall, landing in the water far below, but he's okay. When Zero Wolf's warriors are reluctant to purse him, Zero Wolf stabs one in the chest, killing him (with bloody results). Zero Wolf and the rest then jump, with one hitting his head on a rock underwater, presumably killing him (with bloody results in the water).
  • Jaguar Paw and a warrior race toward a club on the ground. Jaguar Paw manages to grab it, but the warrior swings his club, just grazing Jaguar Paw's head (leaving a bloody scrape). Jaguar Paw then hits that warrior on the head with his club, leaving a gaping wound from which we see blood spurting out.
  • A heavy rain starts to fall, resulting in the deep hole in which Seven is stuck with her young son to fill rapidly with water. She then goes into labor and ends up delivering her baby while standing on a rock in that floodwater (we see the baby squirt out along with some bloody fluids).
  • A hunting trap impales a warrior with various stakes that go through his body, with very bloody results.
  • DISRESPECTFUL/BAD ATTITUDE
  • Blunted's mother-in-law has a bad attitude toward him, screeching about him being an oaf and calling him useless for being unable to impregnate his wife.
  • Some may view the practical jokes played on Blunted as being in bad taste.
  • The attacking warriors who kill villagers, take slaves, and leave the children behind obviously have extreme bad attitudes, as do those who perform human sacrifices. Among them, Snake Ink enjoys tormenting his prisoners.
  • A slave auction is held in a city.
  • A miscellaneous man steals some fruit in the city.
  • FRIGHTENING SCENES
  • Scenes listed under "Violence" and "Blood/Gore" may be unsettling, suspenseful, or scary, especially to younger viewers and/or those with low tolerance levels for such material.
  • The tribesmen all stare into the jungle and we then see what's grabbed their attention, another tribe slowly making its way through their land. They state that theirs was ravaged and continue on their trek.
  • Jaguar Paw has a nightmare where he sees a stranger from before, standing in front of him with a wild look in his eyes and doing some heavy breathing. He holds one of his own bloody body organs (we also see a large and bloody incision in the top of his belly) and screams at Jaguar Paw to run.
  • Zero Wolf's army approaches the jungle village with spears and torches. They then attack and bedlam ensues. During this, one runs headfirst into a pole and is thrown out of a hut, another yanks a villager out via a noose around the neck (he's then knocked out), and the huts are set ablaze. There's hand-to-hand combat (with brutal hitting), while another is hit by a rock and a knife is used to kill others. As this occurs, Jaguar Paw tries to lower his pregnant wife and their young son down into a deep, rocky hole via a vine and must hurry as a warrior quickly approaches (he eventually has to let go and the wife and child land hard down below). He then battles that man at the edge of the hole (over which he's thrown), including hitting but then catching the man before he falls down into the hole. More fighting continues through the village, and we see one infant grabbed and held upside down by the feet, while another slightly older child is thrown against a tree. We then see Jaguar Paw save his father's life and battle Snake Ink who he tackles hard to the ground. He then nearly drives a dagger into him as the two struggle over it before Zero Wolf gets Jaguar Paw around the neck and pulls him away. Ordered by Zero Wolf not to kill Jaguar Paw, Snake Ink then goes over to Flint Sky and slits his throat (with a great deal of blood pouring out) just to spite Jaguar Paw. Snake Ink then strikes Jaguar Paw in the face, resulting in it being a bit bloody while some blood is also in his mouth.
  • Seven and her young boy try to hide at the bottom of a deep and rocky hole as a warrior looks down inside it. He then throws a large rock that nearly hits them, and then leaves, but the two are trapped inside the hole with no way out.
  • We see the bound and wounded tribespeople tied to poles and marched off, leaving the frightened young children behind. The latter follow at a distance, but a strong moving river (through which the slaves are moved) is too much and they're truly left behind this time.
  • Zero Wolf wears various animal skulls and jaws that might be unsettling to some kids.
  • The slaves are forced to walk through a fast moving river while tethered to a pole. Later, while walking on a path along a precipice, a wounded man slips off the side and dangles, causing the pole to shift and Jaguar Paw to dangle by the neck as the others try to retain their footing and pull them back up. Snake Ink watches this in amusement, and when they finally get the pole and those attached to it back on solid ground, he frees the injured man only to then shove him over the side. He falls a long way, crashes into a tree and then hits the ground hard.
  • As the new slaves march along while tethered to a pole above them, a huge tree comes crashing to the ground and nearly hits them.
  • We see a girl with lesions on her skin as she stands by what's presumably her dead parent. The warriors are told to stay away as she has "the sickness," and one keeps poking her away as she repeatedly approaches him. She then gives them a chilling warning about what's to come of them.
  • From a distance, we see a severed head bouncing down the steps of a pyramid. We then see many severed heads on the end up upright poles, followed by the view of another head bouncing down the steps, and then that of a basket of severed heads. Another head comes down the steps, and Zero Wolf slices his own palm as part of the ceremony (blood drips down from that).
  • We then see a more close-up view of the sacrificial ceremony where a slave's heart is cut out as he's held belly up on an altar. His head is then cut off and goes down the steps, followed by his headless body tumbling down the same (all seen in graphic detail). Another slave's heart is cut out, and his head is cut off. Jaguar Paw is up next and is put into the same position, but an unexpected eclipse occurs and his life is saved as everyone reacts to that as a sign from their god.
  • Being instructed to dispose of the leftover slaves now that they're no longer needed as part of a ceremonial sacrifice, Zero Wolf, his son, Snake Ink and others take Jaguar Paw and other slaves down to a field. They're told that if they can run to the end and into the distant cornfield, they'll be free. However, they have to avoid the rocks, arrows, and spears fired or thrown their way, as well as Zero Wolf's son waiting at the end of the field. The first two slaves race off, but among the things fired or thrown at them, a rock hits one, while a spear goes through another (in graphic detail), with Zero Wolf's son finishing them off with blows to the heads. Jaguar Paw and another slave are then ordered to run, and both do so in a zigzag fashion trying to avoid the rocks, arrows, and spears coming their way. A spear hits the other man in the back of the head and comes out of his mouth (with bloody results), while an arrow hits Jaguar Paw. He manages to break off the arrow as Zero Wolf's son comes at him, but the other man trips the warrior who proceeds to strike and kill that man. He then comes at Jaguar Paw to kill him, but Jaguar Paw stabs him in the neck with an arrowhead, with very bloody results. Jaguar Paw then takes off as Zero Wolf and others race toward the mortally wounded son.
  • Jaguar Paw runs through a cornfield to try to elude Zero Wolf and other warriors, only to stumble into an immense mud flat completely covered by muddy, headless bodies. He crawls across and through them to continue his escape.
  • Jaguar Paw has some blood on his hand and side from his wound, and a drop of that hits a leaf and then falls down onto Snake Ink's shoulder from above (we worry it may alert the warrior, but it doesn't).
  • Up in a tree, Jaguar Paw encounters an angry black jaguar. We then see a slow-motion shot of him running with the jaguar closing in, and then that of a warrior running on a parallel path to try to catch Jaguar Paw (unaware of the large cat behind him). The warrior then shifts over and ends up between Jaguar Paw and the jaguar, with the latter then viciously attacking the man (biting his face, etc.) until other warriors rush up and repeatedly spear the cat until it's dead (and bloody, just like its victim and his incredibly torn up face).
  • Jaguar Paw continues running through the night, and then sees warriors approaching with torches.
  • Two large primates fight near the top of the hole where Seven and her son are trapped. One then falls into the hole and is motionless at the bottom, with Seven seemingly going to touch it, but she's retrieving a pole or branch that she then uses to hit the animal when it suddenly charges at her.
  • A large, poisonous snake suddenly lashes out and gets one warrior in the neck. The others know he's doomed, with one telling him he should kill himself before the poison takes effect. The wounded man then uses a dagger to slice deeply into his own forearm, with lots of blood coming out.
  • Arrows are fired at Jaguar Paw as he races through the jungle.
  • Realizing he has no option, Jaguar Paw races toward and then leaps off a very tall waterfall, landing in the water far below, but he's okay. When Zero Wolf's warriors are reluctant to purse him, Zero Wolf stabs one in the chest, killing him (with bloody results). Zero Wolf and the rest then jump, with one hitting his head on a rock underwater, presumably killing him (with bloody results in the water).
  • Jaguar Paw ends up in what looks like quicksand and sinks below the surface, barely managing to pull himself up and out at the last minute.
  • After managing to throw a rope up to the top of the deep hole in which she's stuck with her young son, Seven tries to climb out. But it starts to slip as she makes her way up the rocky wall (while she's very pregnant) and eventually gives way, with her falling back to the ground.
  • Jaguar Paw and a warrior race toward a club on the ground. Jaguar Paw manages to grab it, but the warrior swings his club, just grazing Jaguar Paw's head (leaving a bloody scrape). Jaguar Paw then hits that warrior on the head with his club, leaving a gaping wound from which we see blood spurting out. Jaguar Paw then delivers a kill blow to his head.
  • A heavy rain starts to fall, resulting in the deep hole in which Seven is stuck with her young son to fill rapidly with water. It progressively gets deeper, with her struggling to keep her and her son's head above water. She then goes into labor and ends up delivering her baby while standing on a rock in that floodwater (we see the baby squirt out, but don't see her genitals).
  • Jaguar Paw is hit in the chest with an arrow, but he breaks off the tip and continues in his quest to elude his pursuers and save his family.
  • A hunting trap impales a warrior with various stakes that go through his body, with very bloody results.
  • GUNS/WEAPONS
  • Knives/Daggers/Spears/Clubs/Poisonous darts: Carried and/or used to threaten, wound, or kill others. See "Violence" for details.
  • IMITATIVE BEHAVIOR
  • Phrases: "He's f*cked," "Balls," "Old hag," "Ball breath," "Damn you" and "Bastard dogs" (in English subtitles).
  • All of the fighting and other stunts may be enticing for some kids to imitate.
  • Various tribesmen convince Blunted it would be a good idea to eat the removed testicles from a freshly hunted tapir (a practical joke).
  • The tribesmen have various skin piercings and tattoo type markings.
  • Jaguar Paw throws a wrapped hornets' nest toward his pursuers, with the angry wasps then stinging the warriors.
  • Jaguar Paw pushes darts into the back of a poisonous frog, and then uses them as blow darts to hit one of his pursuers (the man reacts to the poison).
  • JUMP SCENES
  • As the camera slowly zooms into one spot in the jungle, a tapir suddenly bursts forth. Moments later, a spring-loaded trap suddenly slams into that creature.
  • A large primate suddenly charges at Seven.
  • A spring-loaded trap suddenly slams into a warrior, impaling and killing him.
  • MUSIC (SCARY/TENSE)
  • An extreme amount of ominous and suspenseful music plays in the film.
  • MUSIC (INAPPROPRIATE)
  • None.
  • PROFANITY
  • At least 1 "f" word and 1 damn (in English subtitles).
  • SEX/NUDITY
  • The tribesmen wear standard loincloths that cover their crotches, but expose most of their bare butts. The women wear similar outfits, with some bare breasts seen from time to time in the film.
  • Flint Sky asks Blunted if it (his penis) works, with Blunted saying it does, but that he can't make children with it. Flint Sky then gives him a leaf that he tells Blunted he'll have to apply down there next time, and generously.
  • Blunted's mother-in-law has a bad attitude toward him, screeching about him being an oaf and calling him useless for being unable to impregnate his wife. Other villagers laugh about this as she tells him to get into their hut and get busy with her daughter. We later hear screaming and then see Blunted run out from the hut, fully nude with his hands over his crotch, in obvious pain (from the leaf Flint Sky told him to apply -- above). His wife then runs out, with her mouth burning (suggesting oral sex) and she quickly drinks water. Others laugh at this show.
  • We briefly see a male infant's genitals.
  • SMOKING
  • None.
  • TENSE FAMILY SCENES
  • Jaguar Paw watches as Snake Ink slaughters his father.
  • Blunted, who's bound and unable to help, sees two men after his wife. She hits one in the crotch, but is then subdued and pulled away out of sight.
  • We see the bound and wounded tribespeople tied to poles and marched off, leaving the frightened young children behind. The latter follow at a distance, but a strong moving river (through which the slaves are moved) is too much and they're truly left behind this time.
  • Blunted is worried about the presumed rape of his wife as the hands of warriors.
  • Jaguar Paw constantly worries about his wife and young son and spends much of the film trying to get back to rescue them.
  • We see a girl with lesions on her skin as she stands by what's presumably her dead parent.
  • A warrior witnesses his son be killed.
  • TOPICS TO TALK ABOUT
  • The Mayan empire and what became of it.
  • Seeing that Jaguar Paw has become mesmerized by another, shell-shocked tribe walking through their land, Jaguar Paw warms him that fear is a sickness.
  • Human sacrifices.
  • The old village leader has part of his arm missing (from some past incident).
  • The level of violence in the film.
  • The translation of Mayan into English and whether something like "He's f*cked" would be accurate.
  • VIOLENCE
  • The tribesmen chase a tapir through the jungle until it meets its bloody demise at a spring-loaded trap that impales the animal with several wooden stakes. They then cut it open, with one man giving others various organs (that we see in graphic detail).
