Storyline

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.

This Should Have Been The Breakout Filipino Action Film that put it on the Map !!!
29 October 2018 | by Crazy_BruceSee all my reviews

This could have been the Film that put the Filipino Movie Industry on the Map the way Ong Bak did for Thailand and The Raid did for Indonesia but NOOOO!!! It still had all the formulaic cliches that has always plagued Pinoy Action Films !!!! But there are some epic action set pieces that highlight military style efficient close quarters fighting with guns and hand held weapons !! However , some of the fighting was not good or even excellent !!! Some techniques came off cringy and not well executed !!! But Anne Curtis and Brandon Vera ( you might as well have substituted Dave Bautista since he is half Filipino) gave some logical and well executed fighting techniques however when 90 pound Filipina girls can take down a Hulking Brandon Vera by leaping on him then all logic goes out the door !!! The Villain, Biggie Chen was Soooo Cheesy and pathetic as a villain !!! Better Luck Next Time !!!
