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.

You Will Kick Yourself Later if You Don't See This Now!
17 August 2018 | by vanwetteringSee all my reviews

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.
