Critic Reviews for Heneral Luna

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (2)

  • Anchored by a charismatic central performance by John Arcilla ("Metro Manila") and peppered with exciting action sequences, the pic has the all-around energy to overcome the odd moment of bumpy storytelling and prosaic dialogue.

  • From an American perspective, "Heneral Luna" may not be much of a film, but it's a fascinating artifact.

  • "Heneral Luna" would never be mistaken for more serious-minded art-house material, but there are certainly less lively ways to be taught a history lesson.

  • Tarog works around modest resources to create a sense of sweep and dimension. As with Luna himself, the film might go too far at times, but there's much to admire.

    November 5, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Really, when a film works this hard to rouse you, there's no shame in just giving in.

    October 29, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Heneral Luna is a sturdy, stirring if perhaps sometimes simplistic historical epic about bravery and treachery in a country at war.

    A no-holds-barred tour de force from one of the best Filipino filmmakers in the preset day, Jerrold Tarog. I better see this at the Oscars, and if ever chosen as among the top five nominees for Best Foreign Language film, it's going to be Philippines' first.
