Robert H (ru) wrote: METRO MANILA is as much a heartbreaking drama of trying to make it in the big city as it is a crime thriller, probably even more so. Sean Ellis, who directed, wrote, produced and did the cinematography has crafted an excellent story that, while a little too familiar in some respects, is still powerfully acted and beautifully shot. In fact, the visual authenticity is what gripped me the most. Having been to the Philippines a couple of times, I felt like these were locations that I had seen before (even though I hadn't been to the ones specifically used for the film). There are dozens of shots capturing all of the various aspects of life in Manila, from the squalor of the slums to the bright lights of the Metro area. Everything is shown, and nothing is held back. The cinematographic choices also lend a degree of realism to the drama of the story. As far as acting is concerned, everyone did a good job as far as I could tell, although some line readings did seem to be a little off. In particular, the actors who played Oscar Ramirez and Douglas Ong stood out. The story the film tells is quite a familiar one, though, although the execution and setting is what make it seem fresh. Basically, Oscar moves his family from the rice terraces of Banaue to Manila, in hopes that they will be able to make a better living. Oscar gets a job as an armored car driver, while his wife Mai takes a job at a hostess bar (similar to juice bars in South Korea). While there, both are confronted with the harsh realities of city life and are forced to make difficult choices for themselves. Seeing some of the things that they, Mai in particular, have to go through was painful to watch at times, but it helped in making these people easy to sympathize with. Generally, the story doesn't take too many surprising turns, but the way in which it ends was definitely emotionally satisfying. As far as the action is concerned, while the film seems to be billed as a crime thriller, this isn't entirely accurate. Yes, crime is a part of the overall narrative, but at its heart the film is a family drama. This might disappoint people going in hoping for a shoot-em-up, but this film is more thought-provoking than it is riveting in an action-film sense. Overall, I thought that the film was well-made, well-acted, well-shot, etc., even if the story wasn't the most original. Fans of foreign and Filipino cinema should definitely check this out, and I would also recommend it to anyone willing to give it a chance.

This movie blows big ones, I shut it off after a confused first 7 minutes counting the previews...This movie is all over the place, the filming is that of a 17 year old that smoked large amounts of Pot before filming, I love horrors, this horror is a coaster that will sit in a Circuit City's 2.99 bin for years to come.... this will be one of "those movies" that you tell your friend to put back and look for something else as he looks through your dvd collection. I walked out, I couldn't even give it a solid 1.07 with tax worth of viewing. I feel cheated, and feel as if I wasted life...

I'll happily sit and watch GUNS OF THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN with George Kennedy and James Whitmore 50 times over..... just so I can watch JOE DON BAKER steal the whole damn movie!GUNS OF THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN takes that old cliche'd approach of banding a bunch of unsavory, rebellious characters... (each a "specialist" in his chosen field) to pull off a "mission impossible" against incredible odds.But G.O.T.M.S. makes it's characters so rich and real through intelligent writing and character development that the film becomes imminently watchable. You will be upset if your favourite "7" dies...Not one of the classics, but a true guilty pleasure!A great western!
