Trivia

Manager Wenn V. Deramas pulled out his talent, DJ Durano, from the production for alleged unfair treatment. Deramas said Deejay was hired as supporting actor, but he was only used as extra. Wenn said they accepted the Baler project despite the minimal talent fee, believing that Deejay would have a good role. Also for 10 straight days, Deejay's call time was 7 a.m., yet the actor had to wait for 10 hours for his take, the manager/director claimed. Wenn said he had to sacrifice the filming of Ang tanging ina n'yong lahat (2008) due to Deejay's absence for the filming of Baler. See more »

Magnificent
4 October 2012 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

I can relate the movie Baler to my favorite movie, 'Pearl Harbor.' Why? Because both movies revolve in the story of war and is related to romance.

I cannot say that this movie was better than Pearl Harbor, of course, because 'Pearl Harbor' was made in Hollywood and effects were worked on very hard, while 'Baler' was made in the Philippines. However, 'Baler,' as I see it, could be something that the Philippine Film Producers can be proud of and is world-class. It is not just good nor very good. It was excellent.

Beginning from the plot, the film really did impressed me; and the production like filming locations, acting, and effects were explicit and is undeniably amazing. Also, considering that actors were from the Philippines, the pronunciation of Spanish words were very good that you may not be able to notice that they just memorized their scripts.

For the action-packed parts, I need not to elaborate anymore, because if you watch the movie, you will find it yourself. The drama part which was raised by the forbidden love of a Mestizo soldier (Jericho Rosales) and a Filipina lass (Anne Curtis) was also good.

8 out of 10 for Baler!
