Fulfilling Movie from Philippines
12 January 2014 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

On the job is one of those unique movie I've seen from Philippines, I consider this a masterpiece. It's imaging the true scene happening right now in the country.

After watching this, I already know how cruel is the underground activities in the country, on the job really did a great job in revealing the true nature of underground crime in the country.

It is very fulfilling because of the fact that you can learn from this movie, whether to help or not to help is the main reason I find this movie on the job fulfilling.

I also like the mixed drama, romance of course and the twist at the end, sometimes the same scene happened in real life and also the action is not quite substandard, they did a good job in making it to the higher level, at first I did not expect that this movie is from Philippines. Later on, I manage to give a WOW on this one, great job on the job.
