Emmerich Hits Out At Gibson
Director ROLAND EMMERICH has hit out at actor-turned-director MEL GIBSON's movie APOCALYPTO, labelling it one dimensional. Emmerich and Gibson worked together on The Patriot eight years ago (00) - but the longtime filmmaker has been less than flattering about the star's attempts at directing since. The 52-year-old has just finished working on mythical odyssey 10,000 BC and critics have been quick to compare his movie to Gibson's Mayan bloodbath. However, the director insists his film is much better. He says, "I liked Apocalypto. But all that I saw was jungle and some pyramids. I was hoping to see the decline of a civilisation and that story was not really told. You get that with this movie."
