    Oh, how the hot and powerful have turned cold and weak -- at least that's the assessment of Mel Gibson by FilmThreat online. The site has named Gibson No. 1 among the "least-powerful, least-inspiring, least-intriguing people in all of Tinseltown."

    "I need to see the blood!" shouts Mel Gibson. "Your character is going to die soon!" He picks up a bullhorn: "Attention! We are all dying here! We are all dying!" The Oscar-winning director is standing in a rock quarry near Veracruz, Mexico, shooting a hellish scene for Apocalypto, his action epic about the ancient Maya. Hundreds of local extras--many of whom have never seen a movie, let alone acted in one--are pounding fake limestone to build a temple used for human sacrifices.
