Not that bad.
6 March 2019 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

I don't think I watched alot of movies from the Philippines, it's not a country I would immediately associate with good movies but actually this one wasn't bad. Okay the plot has some flaws and issues but overal the story is entertaining. Maybe a bit slow and not fully developed but there is a level of suspense on what actually happened. The acting was better than I thought it would be, not that I understand Filipino (even though there are alot of Spanish and English words in that language), but they looked genuine and believable. Nice cinematography, okay actors, and an entertaining story that could have had a better development.
