Storyline

ONE OF THE WORST FILIPINO FILM OF 2018!
8 October 2018 | by reybenipayoSee all my reviews

Kusina Kings is a waste of talent for both lead, Zanjoe Marudo and Empoy Marquez considering both of them are talented. The film feels like an hour long painful sitcom filled with unfunny and cornys jokes. It also has any awful scenes that sometimes hard to watch. I'm disappointed about this film because the concept has a potential to be great. It ended up plain bad and trying hard spoofing some Filipino movies and TV shows or sometimes referencing them.

Overall, this film is a total failure for all the cast. A perfect example of Filipino trashy mainstream movie.
