Also, for those who are very familiar with the LRT settings, you will see some inconsistencies throughout the entire film. For example, I am studying in front of the milk tea shop where David watched a gun tutorial, it is located in the middle part of Metro Manila, he did the study after he purchased that thing from Recto I guess, then he instantly appeared on some sort of a "V-mall" where the heinous act took place. I get easily confused whenever they skip from one scene to another without even giving prior notice or hint.
The movie was probably made after the gay lover shooting incident about three years ago in a certain mall. The movie didn't really re-enact the incident though. It was just trying to show some resemblance and I feel it's sufficient enough to give us a clue that the movie is really about that gruesome incident.
It also showed how the social media can affect a person's mind. Violent first person shooting games, unregulated online ammunition shops, excessive freedom for posting scandalous pictures over the net. All of these probably triggered the criminal mentality of David which is indeed very depressing.
The characters were portrayed well by the actors and actresses. I give more emphasis to Sandino Martin for excecuting his gay role very well. It's hard to act as a teenage gay if you would ask me. Also, I give high praises to Boots Anson Roa for portraying the role of David's grandmother, although a porcelain skinned and the highly sophisticated looks of Boots Anson Roa isn't really suitable to play as a grandmother living beside an LRT railway.
Nonetheless, I would like to take my hats off for Director Jay Altajeros for a job well done! I will be looking forward to see more of your high quality movies in the future.
