Ikaw, Sino ang Sundo Mo?

Yesterday was a busy for our group for we went to Alabang - Ospital ng Muntinlupa (OsMun) and Research Institute of Tropical Medicine (R.I.T.M) to have our clearance sign up by our respective Clinical Instructors (C.I.s).

Then after that, we went to Burger King (B.K.) Mabuhay Rotonda -Quezon City to meet our C.I. from Metro Lemery Medical Center to get our cases and have our clearance sign up. Well, 6:00pm is our calltime but we waited for almost an hour and a half for our C.I. Hayz!

After the signing of clearance and getting the cases, me, Anna, Carmela, Jesse and F.M. decided to go to Trinoma to watch Sundot according to my friend, Carmela. Of course, I told them that the movie sounds interesting to me. Then I asked them, "Anong movie outfit 'yun?". Then they answered me, "GMA Films!".

Puzzled, of course! 'Coz I never seen any movie plug of that Sundot over GMA 7.

We bought our ticket (Php 150) for the movie Sundot. I told them, "Sounds really exciting!" and they just laugh at me! I just wander why You Changed my Life which is still showing for almost 3 weeks (am I right?) but it costs Php 170. Well, I don't know why was that!

Only 1/3 of the Cinema 1 of Trinoma was filled with people. Hehe! Of course observant ako.

Then the movie starts...


Genre: Horror,Thriller
Director : Topell Lee
Starring: Robin Padilla, Katrina Halili, Rhian Ramos, Sunshine Dizon, Hero Angeles, Mark Bautista, Glydel Mercado, Iza Calzado, Simon Atkins

SYNOPSIS

Romano and his men are ambushed in one military operation. Romano almost gets killed but wakes up after staying in coma for several days. His life will never be the same again. He resigns from the military and goes into seclusion in their Baguio ancestral house after realizing that he now has a supernatural gift.

Romano sees ghosts. But he sees ghost only around people who will soon encounter sudden, tragic deaths. And there is one constant apparition that caps his vision whenever he sees ghosts- that of a really tall and thin woman, horrid and menacing.

Romano’s blind sister, Isabel, seeks help from one of her and Romano’s childhood friends, Louella, now a medical doctor. Louella uses Isabel’s blindness as an excuse to bring Romano out of his seclusion. They travel from Baguio to Manila so Isabel can see a doctor.

An aspiring actress, Kristina, a widow, Lumen, and her son, Eric, travel with them to Manila along with Louella’s driver, Baste. The group avoids a tragic accident on the road but soon, the passengers begin dying, one by one, each through a violent death

Romano eventually figures out that the ghosts Romano sees are ghosts of the dead relatives of people who are about to die tragically. As Romano understands this and uses his gift to save people from their imminent gifts, the tall, thin woman becomes a relentless sight in his encounters.

Soon, Romano learns that the woman is the spirit of tragedy, a malevolent force that is responsible for many tragic deaths. When one is supposed to die from one tragedy and survives, the spirit will haunt the survivor until she eventually succeeds.

Romano, Louella, and Isabel now face the biggest fight of their lives. How to defeat the wrath of the evil spirit and survive the constant threat of death in their lives.

MOVIE REVIEW

Very unexpected talaga na manonood ako ng movie na ito. I thought it was an indie film because of the title "Sundot" but it was just a joke by my friend. The real title is Sundo starring Robin Padilla, Sunshine Dizon, Rhian Ramos, Mark Bautista, and some others.

The movie is very predictable like any of the other asian horror films. It is also very similar to Final Destination movie with some Premonitions alike. I am not terrified a lot pero inaamin ko na nagulat ako sa mga scenes especially 'yung kay Robin.

Well, overall, I am not that satisfied with the movie like my groupmates' reactions. Huh!? I aslways watch kasi asian horror films and know what's original and what's not. This time, eventhough they say that this is the fruit of their creative team, I don't know if I will still believe in them.

Well, review na lang natin mga cast:

Robin Padilla as Romano : The role was perfectly fit to Robin Padilla. He's a very good actor and you'll gonna watch that movie just because of him. Very convincing!

Sunshine Dizon as Louella : Well, this one's great in acting pero nakukulangan pa ako sa binigay niya sa movie na ito. She looks very old in this movie unlike in All About Eve. Ang taba pa niya rito.

Rhian Ramos as Isabel : All I can say is.... She's OA as in Over Acting. Lagi siyang nakatingala - bulag kaya siya. I saw many different actors and actresses portrayed a blind person person pero hindi tulad ng ginawa ni Rhian. Nadala lang siya ng contact lens. Thank God for the person who made it!

Katrina Halili as Kristina : This one's really fit with the character. Kikay na choosy raw sa boyfriend... She's very funny in the movie. I really like her. I also saw her very beatiful and sexy body while doing a bath in a sauna before she died in this move. Naks!

Mark Bautista as Baste : Kasama pala siya rito? Well, he's also a good actor pala!

Hero Angeles as Eric : Monotone siyang magsalita sa lahat ng scenes. Para siyang *utot*. Maybe I just don't like him. He's really cute but I am not satisfied with what he acts on the big screen. He's dull. That's it!

Glydel Mercado as Lumen : Very short yet promising. Hehe :) Ang pangit ng kinamatay niya! She's the first offering to kamatayan.


After the movie, nag-usap-usap kaming magkakagroup about our reaction sa movie. Ang ingay-ingay namin sa sinehan.

"I hate all of you! I thought it was Sundot. Sundo pala! Bwisit!", I joked at them at nagtawanan na ulit kami. Hindi ko alam ang daming nakatingin pala sa amin.

Since, last full show ang pinanood namin, after ng movie ay tiningnan namin isa-isa ang mga kasama naming nanood. I just laugh because the one sitting at the back was Direk Wenn Deramas and he is laughing. I don't know why!? Maybe it's just his reactions to what we have said while watching the movie and after it.

Funny right?!

mukhang maganda yung trailer... kaya lang ilang beses nakong nadisappoint sa mga bagong pelikulang horror. parang pare-pareho ng kwento.

March 21, 2009 at 5:36 PM comment-delete

tingin ko di ko to papanoorin haha

March 21, 2009 at 10:49 PM comment-delete

Huhmn... Kasabay niyong nanood si Wenn Deramas, ang director ng movie? Ayos lang kung narinig nya ang mga reactions niyo, talagang 'yon naman ang sadya nya doon, tiyak.

Ramdam ko ngang hindi original ang kwento, pinagtagpi-tagpi lang galing sa ibang mga nakakatakot na pelikulang banyaga. Gayunpaman, kapag maabutan kong palabas pa ito pag-uwi ko, panonoorin ko pa rin. U

Sundot. Hahaha! o",)

u saw that film?haha expected ko n na hindi siya maganda.thats why I seldom watch tagalog movies at the cinema.if i find something good they say about a particular movie saka ko siya download using a torrent

Nice review. Pero hindi ko pinapanood ang mga horror movie sa big screen, hehe, matindi impact sa'kin..lolz

Basta ang alam ko, if you're studying daw or you have an upcoming exam and should memorize, you might as well, watch comedy movies than horror, it has somethng to do with the memory thing.. There are certain chemicals that will block your great memory and forget such things you just reviewd..Pag comedy kasi, when you laugh it enhances you memorization skill and will retain a lot.. yeah, stuff like that.. ahaha!
