Breaking The Maya Code

The complex and beautiful hieroglyphic script of the ancient Maya was until recently one of the last great undeciphered writing systems. Based on the best-selling book by Michael Coe, called by the New York Times “one of the great stories of 20th century scientific discovery”, Breaking the Maya Code traces the epic quest to unlock the secrets of the script across 200 years, nine countries and three continents.

Ava says:  “Breaking The Maya Code is a very interesting movie to watch.  This was a movie about breaking the code of an unknown language.  The Maya code is ancient writing from the Americas . You may think it’s just pictures but it’s more than that, its something people have been trying to figure out ever since they uncovered it. I think that it is a very good movie at any time and the whole family can enjoy it. My favorite part was when I heard that a twelve year old boy discovered a lot of information that helped to crack the code.  I loved the movie and it was a great experience. I don’t think it could have been better. I would give it a 4.5 stars.”

Jack says :  “I think that the movie was very good. I liked it because of the way the movie makes you feel that we are going to discover so much more about this ancient civilization. I also learned a thing or two on how extraordinary this civilization really was. I give it 4 stars.”

Payton Says: ” Breaking the Maya code was an intriguing film experience. It explained the concepts of culture, religious ritual, dynasties and, of course, oral and written language. The scenery at the Mayan archaeological site of Palenque was stunning. I was also fond of the architects drawings of the royal temples. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in mystery and archeology. I would rate this film 5 stars.”
