Reviews:

3.5          Zig Marasigan (Kristn)

Ad Ignorantiam is an unmistakably small film with a premise that is as frightening as it is plausible.” (Read full review)

3.5          Rito Asilo (Philippine Daily Inquirer)

“Boosted by the believable performances of Kristoffer King, Ina Feleo and Kimmy Maclang, Ad Ignorantiam boldly examines the country’s justice system as it presents contrasting versions of the ‘truth.'” (Read full review)

3.0          Skilty Labastilla (Young Critics Circle)

“In documenting an innocent working man’s mistrial, this is a poor man’s Give Up Tomorrow.” (Read capsule review)

2.5          Oggs Cruz (Twitch)

2.5          Philbert Dy (Click the City)
