From Baz Luhrmann’s filmography (hey, I got his autograph roughly six years ago in Singapore), this film is less kick-ass and, err, disappointing in some aspects. First impression: passé. From story to scope then to execution of scenes that deem too escapist, I thought I was transported back to good old Hollywood days, or locally, Lito Lapid era. That’s when a hero is hyper heroic and the two leads, a characterization that can overshadow a Sharon – FPJ (or Binoe or Cesar or Rudy) tandem. Visually, it’s outstanding, of course. There are signature Luhrmann cameraworks here and there. Not to mention that almost all the scenes are well blocked.
Friends who might appreciate it: those who are disappointed with “Love Me Again (Land Down Under)”.
BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA
SM Lucena, Cinema 1, February 1, 1:30pm
Guess, I’m a wrong audience. There’s one movie line that caught my attention though. It’s when the male chihuahua said something like “We’re Mexican, not Mexican’t!”. I find Drew Barrymore a little “miscast” as the voice of the sosy chihuahua. I’m thinking of Paris Hilton-like celebrity or any teen actress from “Gossip Girl”.
