Movie enthusiasts have raved about the movie "Heneral Luna" - a movie based on the true events accounted during the Philippine-American war. Campaigns were made to keep this movie in cinemas because moviegoers gave good feedback about the movie. They tried to encourage people to watch it because they couldn't let a good movie be put to waste, especially a movie this good and informative. So I had to watch the movie for myself and see whether it's true.
So two of my friends and I went to the cinema. Expecting that the movie crowd was interested in the movie itself and not just to join the bandwagon, I was quite pissed off upon learning that some of them are not actually in it for the movie. Like wtf people? And some couldn't contain their emotions to themselves - giving side comments every. single. scene. Ugh.
Now back to the movie. This is my first movie review so please cut me some slack :)
I don't know much about making movies and all but I know what a good movie is. Heneral Luna was a Filipino movie every Filipino should be proud of. The movie was fantastic. The plot and screenplay was great. Although there were some casts which I don't think were appropriate for the role, but still, over-all it was definitely a must-see movie for all generations.
Movies like these are the ones which people must be interested about. It's history, people. Look, when I was a high school student, I didn't give a damn about all these stuffs because let's face it, high school was mostly just living in the moment. But as I grew older and probably more mature, my perspectives widen and I just can't help but see everything in a different light. History books tell you one thing but this movie will make you question everything you have learn.
Ha ha ha. I don't know if any of you got what I mean by all that.
Bottomline is Heneral Luna was a great movie and all of you should watch it.
