rizal as god
2 November 2003 | by pope_innocentyearsSee all my reviews

'rizal sa dapitan is only one of several rizal movies which portrayed the philippine national hero as a messianic figure who came to earth to save all filipinos.

as we all know, two influential books and a martyrdom does not make a god and the movie 'rizal sa dapitan' portrayed the national hero as someone all-knowing and all-powerful. albert martinez does a very bland rizal, and amanda page gave a very forgettable performance. the only redeeming factor of this movie was the performance of candy pangilinan who portrayed a thoughtful and loving sister who looked after his little brother.

rizal sa dapitan is entirely created out of the director and scriptwriter's imagination, with a real 'what if' premise. after two hours of viewing, audiences will yawn and bob their sleepy heads once in a while, and afterwards they will ask themselves: "so what?" for a true entertaining and historical experience on the life of the world's most popular filipino, watch marilou abaya's 'jose rizal' instead.
