Critic Reviews of "General Luna"
VarietyNovember 30, 2015
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.
Detroit NewsNovember 06, 2015
From an American perspective, "Heneral Luna" may not be much of a film, but it's a fascinating artifact.
Los Angeles TimesNovember 06, 2015
"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.
Seattle TimesNovember 05, 2015
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.
New York TimesOctober 29, 2015
Really, when a film works this hard to rouse you, there's no shame in just giving in.
Hollywood ReporterOctober 27, 2015
Heneral Luna is a sturdy, stirring if perhaps sometimes simplistic historical epic about bravery and treachery in a country at war.
Village VoiceOctober 27, 2015
A hagiographic, testosterone-driven war film heavy on macho posturing, gunfire and explosions, bodies falling, and a stoic hero at the center of it all.
