Editorial Reviews

Over 3000 years ago the Maya emerged from the mists of history and created a  civilization which lasted six times as long as the Roman Empire. Between 750 and 900 A.D. these people abandoned their cities, apparently without reason.  The disappearance of the Maya is as mysterious as their rapid rise from nowhere.  Yet the veil surrounding these people is gradually being lifted. A small group of scientists is currently decoding, character by character, the missives of  this jungle people. The research scientists are constantly discovering ever more amazing and fascinating facts about a culture which we normally only associate with inhospitable temple pyramids and cruel blood sacrifices.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but disjointed April 1, 2014
Verified Purchase
This film was interesting but much of the dialogue did not focus on Tikal per se even though some of the filming was done at Tikal. It was more about the Maya in general. And the film was very disjointed with scenes of modern villagers - without a context - between scenes of Maya buildings. One out of context scene had a photographer photographing images on a pot - without a sufficient explanation that would have made it more meaningful and perhaps in context - his process allowed him to create a single picture of all the images around the round pot but that was not even mentioned. It is a quality movie with interesting information, but it is like whoever put it together did not know what they were doing. By way of contrast, the History Channel's Palenque: Metropolis of the Maya is an excellent documentary about a specific Maya site.
