Mongo see movie. Mongo like movie.

A sub-titled movie based on corruption in the Phillipines. I wonder who cares? A long two hour movie of reading sub titles. Some action, some drama and not a happy ending. Maybe it is about the art?

Matti and Yamamoto aren't reinventing any wheels here, and many of the dialogue scenes operate on a functionally prosaic level. On the Job takes off into a different stratosphere, however, when the emphasis is on visuals and movement. Full Review
A nose-to-the-ground crime thriller that also doubles as a wide-ranging portrait of official corruption in the Philippines, On the Job has little trouble delivering the genre goods. Full Review

The firefights and chase scenes, no matter how much they adhere to genre, seem more real than the people trapped in the corruption. Full Review
The workmanlike precision of On the Job carries through to its action scenes, none of which are shot with any flash or style, but are edited with a propulsive pace and performed by a watchable cast enough to make them engaging. Full Review

The film is as heartbreaking as it is heart-stopping. Full Review
