Reviews:

5.0         Renelson Morelos (Reel Thoughts)

“In (Loreños’) 2nd film, he was likewise able to make… a trio of young actors shine in clearly offbeat roles, the kind that is so vividly shithead that it just rings true. And these 3 devil-may-care youths he situates in a neo-noir microcosmos of nocturnal pleasures, shady transactions and risky games of chance.” (Read full review)

3.5         Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“There are huge jumps in this narrative that are never really explained to any satisfying degree. But the film gains much from its frankness about what young male friendships can be like, particularly among the middle-class Chinese.” (Read full review)

3.0         Mario Bautista (Showbiz Portal)

“This might serve as a cautionary story for similar impulsive young people who act without thinking of the possible consequences of their reckless acts, but other than that, it offers little else.” (Read full review)

2.5         Manuel Pangaruy (Tagailog Special Presents)

“Bihirang bihira ang ganitong ritmo at sensibility sa local film scene. Nakapag-introduce din ito ng mundo ng mga bookie kahit na hindi extensive ang pagtalakay. Medyo one note (lang) sa akin ang pagkakadilig sa mga karakter. May punla pero hindi ito ganap na napayabong lalo na’t partly ay character study ang pelikula.” (Read full review)
