Review: 10,000 Hours (MMFF 2013)

Another MMFF film review here. :) And another action movie. Sorry guys, I actually have BOYfriend now and apparently, the rumors are true, boys really prefers action films. Hahahahaha!

But in all honesty, I love the fact that I was able to catch the much sensible films first. Of course, the beauty of MMFF movies are the variety of films they offer. They got comedy for the kids and the entire family, some horror usually, action films and those award-winning films that would bring out the film critic in you.

10000 Hours is one of those film. They won, like 15 awards last MMFF Awards Night and I must say that this film really deserved it. It has that Hollywood Film vibe in it. And being an avid movie goer, of both local and foreign films, I could honestly say that this one is top-notch.

The story-line is superb. Sabi sa inyo mala-Hollywood film. Tipong Bourne Identity levels. Parang ganun. It really does have a strong storyline that was wonderfully executed. Galing ni Bb. Joyce Bernal. And I heard this film has an all-women off-screen team. They truly deserve those awards.

Nice cinematography as well. Hindi mukhang tinipid. Hindi mukhang cheap. Clear shots, nice camera angles, pulidong pulido. Even the running scenes, though parang they made it a bit shaky (para mukhang tumatakbo din yung camera) doesn’t make me dizzy. Yung ibang movies kasi ganun diba? Parang, OMG! Sana nag-tripod nalang kayo!!! Hahahaha…

Now let’s talk about the actors – Robin Padilla truly deserves the Best Actor trophy. Galing! Ang layo sa “Bad Boy” Robin na kinasanayan ko. That Robin antics na laging ginagaya ng jowa ko (sa kasamaang palad). He was able to portray a role so far from his forte. Imagine? Senador na may angas. Grabe lang! And not to mention, ang gwapo-gwapo nya padin!!!! Ansaveh ni Daniel Padilla teh?! Parang di tumatanda. Di ko kinaya.

The other actors are also great. Of course, Michael De Mesa, Mylene Dizon and Pen Medina did a fantastic job. Eh kaya lang given na yun sa kanila. Magagaling talaga silang aktor eh. Expected na. But I loved Carla Humphries here. May talent si ate! At ang red lipstick na bongga, bagay na bagay. I must also commend Ketchup’s funny antics. Well, expected na din naman yun sa kanya. Sana lang mas binigyan sya ng mas madaming eksena. Para medyo nakakatawa. Kaya lang I guess too much of Ketchup would kinda ruin the “vibe” of 10000 Hours na medyo seryoso at parang laging may oras na hinahabol.

But nasayangan ako sa role ni Bella Padilla. I guess somebody else (maybe a bit older?) would be perfect for the role. Medyo kulang pa sa bigas si Bella. Konting hasa pa siguro. Sayang coz she got one of the main roles. Pero okay na din, kasi jowa nya ang producer so I guess kelangan talaga andun sya. Hihihihi… #chismis

This film truly deserves your time and effort. Sayang naman if you won’t watch it. Specially now that the Pork Barrel Scam is kinda nakakalimutan na naman ng mga Pilipino. Hey guys!! Wag natin kalimutan. Mag-tweet, mag-status sa Facebook. Paramdam sa gobyerno na hindi tayo nakakalimot.

Go ahead and watch it. Great film.
