Turning the church into a military fort, the unrelenting heat and malaria starts to sweep across the men. After the Captain's death by a disease called beriberi, Cerezo steps in as the new leader of the squad, faced with a constant power struggle with Jimeno, a soldier from the previous squad annihilated by the rebels. Becoming more and more paranoid and obsessive with the victory and the glory of the Spanish Empire, the rebels close to Cerezo explain that Spain has already sold the Philippine Islands to the USA, ceding all the colonies from the Spanish Empire, and that the war ...

not all stories are worth telling
1 May 2017 | by tsimshotsuiSee all my reviews

Despite the high production quality (and the budget that comes with that), the satisfactory cinematography and selection of actors, the film's existence is still the most baffling thing about it. It's ultimately in bad form to praise and give the perpetrators of oppression this heroic treatment. Yes, they are flawed, yes, the film shows the bad and foolish choices, but the actual making of the film and spending all the time and effort on it is the bigger statement here.
