Clichéd Love Story, Rough Prod
16 March 2013 | by Richmond SimSee all my reviews

By reading the plot alone, you can defy that the storyline is not that substantial in anyway. The crisis of the movie wasn't that heavy enough to raise the audience's feelings (well, except for the fact that Filipinos love to watch romantic movies).

On the first part of the movie, you can clearly recognize the very exact scenes repeating. Also, some of the scenes from the beginning were once again repeated before the end. Although they wanted to portray that the characters were reminiscing the past, they could have shown the eye-view prospective since the characters were reminiscing what they saw, not what the audience saw in the screen.

The switching of scenes also was not that good. The cuts are very obvious, as if the producers were too lazy to repeat shooting the lines, so they just trimmed and pasted the two video clips. If that was the case, they could have changed the angle of the camera projection so that the flow would be as smooth as it could be.

Many scenes also were just a copycat of the traditional romantic Filipino films. One is the boy-bumps-girl scene where the things of the girl scatter on the floor and the boy helps him out and they develop. Another example is the girl-wants-boy-but-boy-likes-another girl. Although these formula for movies are still effective for some viewers, the fact remains that viewers are already bored of seeing these kind of scenes over and over again.

The ending also wasn't that clear. They only focused on one element and left behind other developments from the plot. The question "What happened to the other half of the story?" reigned my mind. Also, the computer generated effect of the fireworks in the end was very obvious.

There were several plus points for the movie, though. The heavy lines brought out by Patchot (Kathryn Bernardo) were somehow better than before. On the other hand, the role of Ivan (Daniel Padilla) was able to lift up the romantic theme in the movie through the punch lines.

It is also good that the character of Ivan gives acronym and defines it afterwards, so the audience can relate to.

The injection of some comedic lines also was a good idea to change emotions of the audience every now and then. It is also good to think that they did it not forcibly, for it seems to be very in line with the plot.

Some of the scenes featuring the sky while the two main characters were having romance also was quite good. The cinematography was undeniably leveled up, although it was present only at few scenes.

It could have been improved in many ways. So, I give a score of 4/10.
