MMFF 2008 Entry – “Desperadas 2″ with Unique Characters and Story
This is short review of the MMFF official movie entry, Desperadas 2 for the Metro Manila Film Festival 2008 awards. Desperadas 2 is actually a sequel to the first movie, Desperadas and stars the same set of character from Ruffa Mae Quinto, Ruffa Gutierrez, Marian Rivera and Iza Calzado. This is a Regal Entertainment feature and directed by the critically acclaimed Joel Lamangan.
There is really very little for me to say about Desperadas but what I can tell you is that this is not just your ordinary movie of four distinct attitude of each of the girls having only one mother but with different fathers each. They get along together and go along with each other and I bet you would want to watch this movie also because of the unique set-up of the theme. This is rare in its likeness that Filipinos have come to grow up with the kind of culture as a woman and as a person. Unique setting of the story and character is the right word for me on this film, Desperadas 2.
