When "BuyBust" finally combusts, it's often simultaneously spectacular and disturbing.
So often bogged down by pseudo-naturalistic long takes and generic cop/robber power dynamics that it makes one wonder what the point of watching such a film is.
Featuring one villain in leopard pants and another in a bathrobe, "BuyBust" is surprisingly funny for a movie that's basically a massacre in progress.
It feels like the film is trying to have it both ways, turning violence into a joyride even as it condemns it.
Goes beyond easy moral binaries to highlight how Duterte's warped worldview has made monsters out of everyone from the police to the peddlers to the ordinary people in between...
A superbly executed action film about drug squad members fighting for their lives in a maze-like Manila slum that resembles nothing less than hell on earth.
A non-stop, adrenaline-soaked bloodbath that hits the ground running and doesn't let up until the exhausting conclusion.
The stars, director, and crew put their best efforts in for our entertainment and in the end they put enough heart and soul in that it ultimately works.
The politics of BuyBust are thorny and contentious, addressing the Filipino War on Drugs with a decided lack of elegance.
Some of the sequences are crazy in construction, but few make good on their promise of showing more than easy blocks and arm-twisting flips.
The 47-year-old director...is certainly quite clever to use the chaos, the unbelievable sequences in the film as a metaphor for his anti-establishment sentiment.
Uneven but brawling and bracing Filipino riff on "The Raid," a drug bust gone epically wrong.
