Driss and Manuel are two childhood friends who end up taking opposite paths: Manuel chose to embrace the thug life, while Driss becomes a cop. When Manuel's biggest deal goes terribly wrong, the two men meet again and come to realize they both need each other to survive in their worlds.
Set against the backdrop of the Philippines Government's crackdown on illegal drugs, a SWAT-led police force launches an operation to arrest Abel, one of the biggest drug lords in Manila. Police Officer Espino and Elijah, a small-time pusher turned informant, provide the intelligence for the operation, which quickly escalates into a violent and heavily-armed confrontation in the slums between the SWAT and Abel's gang. Before the investigators arrive at the crime scene, Espino and Elijah walk off with Abel's backpack full of money and methamphetamine. This gesture of survival for one and corruption for the other will soon set off a dangerous series of events, both of them risking their reputations, families and lives in the process.
Filipinos can make really good awesome movies. BUT NOT THIS ONE.
THIS movie is just very bad in every way. The story takes you nowhere, cinematography is mediocre and amateurish.
But worst is the acting. Indeed acting (if you can call that acting) is atrocious to say the least.
Plus, characters are all evil, including the wives. The wife of Elijah (the small time drug pusher) uses one year-old baby to smuggle the little bag of meth, which she an Elijah hid their little daughter's diaper.
Even the pigeons are used as mules in this horrible twisted tale, where betrayal in every corner.
The scenario is negative, gloomy and pessimistic from frame one and don't expect a shed of light to come thru the empty hopeless darkness.
In addition, there is no message of positivism and hope, and there are no heroes in the story. In fact, at the end it is revealed that even the chief of a the pilipino police (PNP) is a corrupt officer who gets a box of money at his home's swimming pool.
It was the police chief who likely ordered the killing of Moises.
Lots of killing? Not indeed. It's all bad, cheap drama. The only shooting took place in one first and only operation from where everything derives.
Not surprisingly I was the only one person in the cinema for the show at 4:30 today Wednesday (Jan 16) at SM City Cebu.
In conclusion, watching this movie was a perfect waste of time and a waste of money. I should have watched the movie "Glass" with Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson or "Replicas" with Keanu Reeves.
