We don’t always come across a Filipino movie that is entertaining, moving and relevant at the same time.
Heneral Luna is one of the movies that will leave a big stamp on our film industry. This is a movie that we would like our grand kids to see in the future. The Director and the entire crew did a great job in making this film as realistic, accurate, period correct and entertaining as possible. It has a very serious topic and tone but you will not find yourself dozing off due to boredom. We will no longer go into details because other reviews already did that and we don’t want to spoil it for the once who has not seen the film yet.
We were the first ones to see Heneral Luna on the big screen. Along with a few senior citizens, you can really count the number of people inside the movie house. The little voices inside our heads are saying “Oh, our country still have 16 patriots and 14 of them are Seniors”. Cool. We all enjoyed the masterpiece and gave it a standing ovation as it ends. We just felt sad that the population who needs to see this epic film is more interested in infidelity movies.
When the news came out that movie houses are taking out Heneral Luna from their cinemas, a lot of people got upset because we firmly believe that this Biopic really deserves a chance to be seen by many. Good thing that good reviews started pouring in and discussions were started all over social media. Finally, Heneral Luna is getting the attention.
Now. Heneral Luna is on its 4th week, and we can still hear a lot of people wanting to see it. This masterpiece has now reached its goal of earning Php200M to seal the deal for a sequel. So expect another movie that is worth our time and money.
One last thing. STOP BUYING BOOTLEG COPIES OF HENERAL LUNA YOU CHEAPSKATES!!!
