22 November 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I watched the actual events unfold in the news on TV. For those four days, I was glued to that TV. Although this movie was not totally factual, I enjoyed watching it and felt the emotion and energy of the story. The first time I watched it, I was tearing near the end. But that soon stopped when I noticed that the actors portraying the Filipinos in the street were NOT Filipino! What a disappointment. To viewers who can't tell the difference in appearance between a Filipino and another Asian, it's not so bad. But for a Filipino who happens to be taken by the emotion and tension of the scene in the movie, it was such a disappointment. Overall, the movie was good. It adequately portrayed the message of the whole People Power Revolution and what it was able to accomplish...
