Movie Review :

It was so unfortunate that I started my Cinemalaya experience this year with Joel Lamangan's Hustisya. It was so painful to watch. Ugh!!

The movie reeked as much as the gutters that were shown onscreen. I just couldn't find one redeeming value in it.

It was the typical socio-political commentary you expected from Lamangan that didn't really say anything new.

Even the usually brilliant Nora Aunor got dragged down by all the awfulness. More than her off performance, it was sad to see her struggle.

Her voice was so scratchy and she was having difficulty saying her lines. I refuse to accept that she's way past her prime.
