Miracle in Cell No. 7 - A Great Filipino Adaptation on the 2013 Korean Movie
25 December 2019 | by ajacayen-47694See all my reviews

Miracle in Cell No. 7, starring big actors including Aga Muhlach, Bela Padilla and child star Xia Vigor and one of the movies part of the Metro Manila Film Festival, is an amazing and absolute must-watch for everyone, with the cast and storytelling being one of the greatest elements being used in the film.

The casting is spot on, with Aga Muhlach as Lito, the father of Yesha (Xia Vigor) is probably one of his best performances yet as someone who has disabilities. Xia Vigor does well in being the energetic and optimistic child makes a great chemistry with Aga Muhlach. The friendly inmates including Joel Torre, Mon Confiado, JC Santos,Jojit Lorenzo and Soliman Cruz suit an amazing bond with one another, a symbolism of newfound friendship with Aga and Xia's characters. John Arcilla on the other hand, as always, keeps his veteran acting at his best.

The story unfolded very well just like in the 2013 Korean film. However, being set in the Philippine context makes the film even more interesting. To see how death penalty is reflected in the film by the cast makes this very symbolical, for me, that death penalty is truly unfair for those who are innocent and have done nothing wrong at all.

Nuel C. Naval's take on the 2013 Korean film is absolute genius and will definitely make you feel emotional a lot.
