Storyline

It is November 1992 and the US Navy is preparing to surrender its largest overseas facility at Subic Bay, Philippines, after almost a century. For both countries, and for the navy, it is a time of change. With manpower low US Navy SEALS are helping protect the base, including William Hawk, John Stryzack and Paul Bladon headed by Commander Hamilton. Olongapo City, beside the base faces an uncertain future. Lisa Velasquez is part of the local Mayor's team that wants to turn the base into a new city.

Disappointing.
26 October 1999 | by (Manila,Philippines) – See all my reviews

Critics all over the country expressed their dismay over this film, which received huge theatrical release in 1997 but ended up a disappointment, both critical and box-office. The story of three sisters who lived during the afternath of the U.S. Bases' exit in the country in 1991 was, honestly, suited primarily for a TV-movie slot. Poorly-written dialogue, amateurish performances (from the American cast)and a predictable plot didn't gave justice to the film's undermining potential. The director (Thierry Notz) and the American cast are just a product of low-profile U.S. movies and their performances show. A disappointment from ABS-CBN. 5/10
