Filipino crime thriller inspired by a real-life scandal in which prison inmates are temporarily released from prison to work as contract killers on behalf of politicians and high ranking military officials.
After surviving the slaughter of her entire squad in a drug raid compromised by dirty cops, anti-narcotics special operative Nina Manigan (Anne Curtis), is eager to go head-to-head with the drug cartels that hold a bloody grip on Manila. But when her new mission in the city's most dangerous slum goes south, the angry civilians turn on her squad. Trapped between a brutal drug gang and hordes of bloodthirsty citizens, their only option is to fight their way out, turning one claustrophobic street at a time into a symphony of apocalyptic violence.
You Will Kick Yourself Later if You Don't See This Now!
I was lucky enough to notice this playing in Times Square this week. If you are a fan of Asian action films - anything from John Woo to the Ong Bok crew, I guarantee you will love this. Some have mentioned the Raid films. I get that, but this is so much more creative, and despite the chaos you will identify with the characters. And the atmosphere is very organic.
The director is a madman. Those one take scenes towards the end are the right way to go out with a bang. What a payoff after the other mayhem/set peices and after the slow boil tension building earlier.
I hope I can find this on disc some day. I want to show this movie to all my friends and Filipino in-laws.
