Bar Boys (2017)

Directed by: Kip Oebanda

A group of aspiring lawyers and their circumstances in life serve as a strong evidence why this film deserves a positive verdict.

The film started with 4 friends playing a computer game wherein they have to defend each other against countless attacks from enemies.

This intro scene instantly captured the essence of the story by inviting us on a battlefield where winners survive and fighters thrive. Each player has their lifeline, and you anticipate on how they will make it to the finish line.

Paano sila makakarating dun?

Anong sandata ang kailangan nila para magtagumpay?

Malinaw ang direksyon na gustong tahakin ng pelikulang ito.

The storytelling is straightforward. They don’t depend on technicalities alone to make their story come to life. They rely more on experiences.

The scenes are not overflowing with dramatic moments, but it gives the right emotion and a clear message every time.

The lines have no alternate meanings, and they were meant as it is. — which makes it more resounding and empathetic, because they have the purest intentions of sharing a story that everyone must know and understand.

Too many characters are being introduced, but no one was left behind. Lahat sila ay mararamdaman mo. Mula sa magulang, kasintahan, kaibigan, kapatiran hanggang sa kaklaseng hindi makasagot sa tanong ng guro. Lahat sila ay maaalala mo.

Ms. Odette Khan‘s demeanor made a lasting impact. The way she delivered her lines was full of dignity and compassion. Tumatagos ang bawat salita nya, at nananatili sayo. Siya ang professor na dapat mong hangaan.

Marami silang binigay na katotohanan na magandang pakinggan, at katatawanan na masarap balikan. Hindi kailanman naging madamot ang pelikulang ito sa pagbahagi ng kanilang karanasan at kaalaman.

They give entertainment without losing their worth. They give hope and positivity without losing their sense of reality.

The greatest asset this film has to offer is their value for education. They depict knowledge as a beacon of power; you are nothing without it.

In this era of Filipino commercial films where education seems to be a rare focus, Bar Boys is everything.
