Abstract：Mayan civilization seems to be a shining and mysterious pearl in human history. It leaves people with endless mysteries as a flash in the pan. Mayan created many miracles in the world, but its civilization declined quickly, even vanished from the earth in a short time, which due to the limitations of itself and the outside factors. Apocalypto demonstrates the scenes of the late Mayan civilizations through the eyes of Jaguar Paw, the main character in the movie. It also reveals the inevitable declination of Mayan Empire from the perspectives of religion, war, human sacrifice, ecology, plague and colonial activities.
