MOVIE REVIEW: PATAY NA SI HESUS (Victor Villanueva, 2016)


It was refreshing to watch a full-length Bisaya film where the punchlines were not people being or speaking Bisaya. Plus points for having a character working as a call center agent who was actually proud of her work.

Overall, it felt rough around the edges with a lot of jokes clearly missing the mark (e.g. the entire Angelina Kanapi sub-plot). But when it didn’t really try hard for cheap laughs, it was a winner (e.g. the entire ‘what is a puke’ discussion).

Also, Chaisters 5evs! ❤️
