Re-absurdity of the classic Filipino comedy films
19 January 2016 | by cyber_gecko_cdrSee all my reviews

Emman, a policeman, needs his former best friend, Erika, to be an asset to a mission.

Craziness is all I have to say. I laughed as much as I expected. I liked the way they're breaking the fourth wall, you know if you watch classic Filipino films like Rene Requiestas introducing the director in the middle of the movie. The chemistry between Coco Martin and Vice Ganda is absolutely effective. The fighting scenes in this movie are better than some other serious Action Drama films. It gives justice to the action genre through the production design and choreography.

It was satisfying to watch it with laughs but there are some obviously unsettling moods. The supporting love story, JaDine, is out of place.

Another problem was the movie trying not to be awkward on drama scenes. It made the audience not care about that character.

A new flavor for a Wenn Deramas movie. I must say this is a worth watching two-hour comedy film.
