The Last Ones in the Philipines.
27 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A quite decent war movie that portrays the twilight of the Spanish Empire, which after 400 comes to an end with defeats in Cuba, Puerto Rico, Philipines, Guam, Palau, Marianas at the hands of this new emerging power called United States of America.

Shot on a decent budget given the circumstances of the time(Postwar Spain, international economic blockade...), brings us once again the contrast between the barefoot Spanish soldier, who goes far beyond his duty and politicians in the mother land who abandon him to his own luck as is a constant in recent Spanish History.

At the end of the movie the concept of honorable defeat is highlighted, showing as they depart from their quarters, how the rebels allow the Spaniards to keep their Flag and arms.

The cast includes some domestic and internationally renown names like Fernando Rey(French connection, Don Quixote...), Manolo Morán, Tony Leblanc, etc...

I recommend this film for its uniqueness in showing a time long ago forgotten; a rare piece of Spanish-Asian History.
