ROADTRIP

RoadTrip (2024)

Directed by: Andoy Ranay


4 bestfriends go on a roadtrip.


Kung ano man ang meron silang apat offcam ay natural nilang nailalabas oncam. Masarap silang panuorin sa big screen dahil alam mong totoo ang mga nakikita mo. Hindi ka makakaramdam ng peke sa samahang ito.


Gelli de Belen gave a Best Actress performance. Janice de Belen had the most difficult role here and she was convincing. Carmina Villaroel is the ray of sunshine in this friendship full of storm. Candy Pangilinan is good both in comedy and in drama.


Ana Abad Santos deserves more screentime. John Lapus had a brief yet sweet memorable appearance. JC Tiuseco’s charm was effectively used to the scenes.


Pagdating sa kanilang mga usapan, may mas igaganda pa sana ito. Magkakaiba sila ng personalidad at ng mga trabaho, ngunit walang palitan ng iba’t ibang mga pananaw. Sa tuwing merong problema, hindi nagkakaroon ng diskusyon. Mabilis itong natatapos at napuputol.


There are some sensitive issues in the movie that weren’t tackled and handled well. A few characters were only seen and talked about for a short time—even if they were crucial to the story.


The flashback scene about the girls is irrelevant. It can be removed without affecting the whole movie. There are some noticeable editing mistakes. The flow could’ve been a lot better to achieve a maximum roadtrip experience.


May plottwist na kaagad sa simula ng kwento. Ngunit kahit alam mo na kung ano ang mangyayari, nakakaantig pa rin ang huling mga sandali. Angkop ang paggamit nila sa kantang “I Can” ni Donna Cruz.


Maganda ang mga tanawin na kanilang napuntahan.

Pero mas nangibabaw pa rin ang ganda ng kanilang samahan.


Maingay silang lahat. Magulo silang lahat. Puro bangayan, sigawan, tawanan, at iyakan. Naipakita nila kung paano talaga magturingan ang magkakaibigan.


Sa nangyaring roadtrip,

ang parating nasa front seat

ay ang kanilang friendship.


Panahon na muli para kwentong kaibigan naman

ang umarangkada sa mga sinehan.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars.

Naguluhan din ako sa kung sino sila sa magkakaibigan. Haha! Pero I guess it was intended to be like that. It's part of the movie- to make us wonder who's who. I agree they could have created more of those scenes na pnapakita na yung twist. But the kilabot effect was there. Gosh! I so love Janice!

Rated 3 out of 5 stars.

I super agree with the review. Could've been better if other scenes were cut to highlight yung ibang scenarios na need ng more exposure. Yes, there are clips na hindi naremove ng video editor nalinis sana. Some of the scripts/scenes that are irrelevant medyo paulit-ulit din yung thought, bumagal yung pacing so kinda boring or syaang if nalagyan ng ibang eksena na mas relevant sa story..could've been replaced with better scripting yung ibang batuhan ng linya. Love the twist though..and the actors are good so far. Medyo na lost lang ako sa character ni Ana Abad Santos if ano ulit character nya dun..hehe... led me here while searching for it.hehe.

Parang sa una gusto nila isipin ng mga manonood na yung character ni ana abad santos ang namatay hindi si janice sa description kasi 4 sila na nag roadtrip pero habang umuusad ang istorya mapapansin na agad yung twist kasi never nagkaroon ng physical contact si janice doon sa tatlo eh saka malungkot ang aura ng character niya
