Reviews:

3.0          Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

Dyagwar isn’t your high-art flick. Its film-making skill sometimes feels trite and indistinctive. But it grows on you. And though it rests on fast resolutions, the way main stream movies do, it’s hard to deny its entertainment value.” (Read full review)

3.0          Mark Angelo Ching (Pisara.me)

“It’s just like eating the bubbles on top of a fizzy drink–it’s fun to eat, but you don’t get full.” (Read full review)

2.0          Manuel Pangaruy (Taga-ilog Special)

“Parang days in the life of a sekyu. At some point, na-achieve n’yang mag-inject ng boredom to simulate the work of a security guard pero unintentionally yata. Gusto ko ‘yung monotony pero hindi interesting ‘yung mga bits and pieces ng kwento ng mga tenant tapos parang sitcom ang atake. Though mahusay si Eric Fructuoso, parang miscast s’ya. Mahusay at seryoso sa character n’ya ‘yung Boom Labrusca.”

1.5          Philbert Dy (Click the City)

Dyagwar lacks purpose and drive, and thus comes off as random and confused.” (Read full review)
