MOVIE REVIEW: BAKWIT BOYS (Jason Paul Laxamana, 2018)



Completely smitten by this charmer. One character pleaded a radio station manager to give a chance to unknown but exceptionally talented artists and it couldn’t have been more apt here. The cast (led by Vance Larena and the wonderful Devon Seron) was a delight to watch.

It may not have been a musical in the strictest sense but the original songs here were really good and served their purpose. Several reaction shots especially the one with a terrific Nanding Josef (as the boys’ grandfather) beaming with pride had me crying in my seat. Good stuff!

Rating: ★★★★☆
