Compelling but not convincing
6 July 2005 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

I have seen this mini series thrice. I must say it's much more fictional than factual. Although Ruben Rustia was awesome for his role as President Ferdinand Marcos (he received a Best Actor award), none of the other actors/actresses were convincing, including Gary Busey. Maybe Anti-Marcos people would disagree otherwise, but I'll give this mini series a 2/10 score. Sri Lankans substituted for Filipinos? There's one obvious goof in this movie. When Air Force General Sotelo landed his helicopters at Camp Crame, you can notice in the background the moving traffic along E. Delos Santos Avenue (EDSA). During this so-called EDSA Revolution, the only vehicles on EDSA are some military and news vehicles.
