Watched 4 MMFF entries and RPG is the only movie that is worth every Peso!
I've been postponing my plan to watch this and finally when my curiosity is about to go berserk, I head for the most convenient cinema. And boy was I amazed! I even watched it twice! Never mind that I have work tomorrow morning. And twice I heard the audience clap at the end of the movie! Now there are a lot of exclamation points here. :)
The story evolves around a young kid, Nico, spending his summer vacation playing MMORPG with his neighbourhood friends. He sucked at outdoor activities that he ultimately learned to love through their new friend, May. When a virus that was affecting the gamers was discovered in Metanoia, their MMORPG of choice, the group decided to investigate and to solve the issue.
The best part of this movie is not only the graphics but the script itself. It creates a relation to the common society here in Philippines and it conveys our natural reaction to certain scenarios. The friends' bond is very well portrayed and the characters are well thought of. Of course there are cheesy parts, make no mistake, but the puns are well executed and even the soundtracks are note worthy! But take note of the graphics - the shape of Nico's CPU, the disinfectant alcohol's container, the cupboard, the tricycle, and others; it bleeds creativity. A part made me laugh when they ate ice cream; they placed it in a mug not in a bowl. This is so likely. Haha! I am thinking of buying its DVD as soon as it comes out; and if I did, this will be the only Filipino film in my collection, not to mention animated.
