Movie Review#2: "Sundo"

Author: admin // Category:
Sundo is another Filipino suspense-thriller film from director Topel Lee under GMA Films. The movie stars Robin Padilla, Katrina Halili, Rhian Ramos, Hero Angeles, Mark Bautista and Sunshine Dizon. It was released in the Philippines last March 18, 2009. In Sundo, a retired military operative who goes into seclusion discovers that he has the uncanny ability of seeing ghosts around people who will soon encounter sudden, disastrous deaths. Worried of his brother, Romano’s blind sister Isabel (Rhian Ramos) persuades him to return to Manila with the help of Louella (Sunshine Dizon), Romano’s childhood friend who harbours affection for him.
An aspiring actress, Kristina (Katrina Halili), a widow, Lumen (Glydel Mercado), and his son, Eric (Hero Angeles) hitch a ride with Romano, Isabel and Louella along with Louella’s driver, Baste (Mark Bautista). On their way back to the city, the group manages to avoid a fatal accident on the road and their respective “sundo” by a twist of fate. Unaware that their sudden brush with death would cause them the most ruthless battle they will ever come to face. In Romano’s hands lie the fates of his companions as he tries to uncover the mystery behind his premonitions. At the end of the story, everyone was kicked off with their Sundo as all of them died hilariously
The movie made me scarred specially with the twist ending but an error with the story-flow made me laughed when Robin Padilla had an action scenes and violent “military-gun” stunts, thus, making it an ordinary action film that he has produced over the past years. For a rating of PG-13 , this film definitely is not suitable for minors. But inspite of that, I still salute the director and scriptwriter for opening my mind that each and everyone of us has an end and has a “Sundo”. Overall rate from 1-10 is “7”.
