He rents a room in Trina’s house, and gets a job from Sophia. He becomes drawn to both women, each providing him with something that he needs.

Reviews:

3.5       Mario Bautista (Showbiz Portal)

“It’s Solenn who runs away with the movie simply because she has the more attention getting and demanding role ala-Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction.” (Read full review)

3.0       Mark Angelo Ching (PEP)

Seduction showcases a good story and good direction. The talent, however, does not quite back these up.” (Read full review)

3.0       CBCP CINEMA

“Maganda ang mga teknikal na aspeto ng pelikula. Mahusay ang mga kuha ng camera lalo na sa mga eksena na nagpapakita ng mga tanawin at tradisyon katulad ng kasalan sa probinsya.” (Read full review)

2.5       Philbert Dy (Click the City)

Seduction stumbles on more basic things, with a clunky script and haphazard editing creating a haze of confusion that never really lets up.” (Read full review)

2.5       Rito Asilo (Philippine Daily Inquirer)

“The noirish dramatic thriller is a patchwork of titillating scenes that eschew logic for style, leaving its audience craving for greater coherence and believability.” (Read full review)

2.5       Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

“With a story that doesn’t really convey a sense of exigency, it feels like the narrative has taken the sideline from the scenographic ruse.” (Read full review)

2.5       Ria Limjap (Spot.ph)

“While the story Seduction will not really get your engines going—the predictability is almost funny—it is visually a big fluffy treat.” (Read full review)

2.0       Zig Marasigan (Kristn)

Seduction ends up being nothing more than a tease with little to show for under its short, cheap skirt.” (Read full review)

2.0       Nicol Latayan (Tit for Tat)

“It seemed as if it was a battle of “Who can act the worst?” among the three lead stars.” (Read full review)
