This fast-paced, 1.5 hour, animated film is fictionalized history meant for Spanish kids. The plot is for the fleet to sail west, past the Americas, get spices from the Moluccas, and sail back to Spain, all while avoiding the Portuguese. The portion that Filipino reviewers (who haven't even seen this movie) complain about lasts for about 5-7 minutes, when the protagonists make a brief stop in Cebu and Mactan islands. Lapu-lapu, the Mactan chief, appears for a few seconds and is a brave, muscular guy, as opposed to the corpulent Humabon, the king of Cebu. The battle of Mactan lasts for about a minute. There is nothing about "colonization" in this film. It is all about survival and discovery in the first circumnavigation of the world. Oh, and by the way, I am also Filipino.
