Reviews:

3.5         Oggs Cruz (Rappler)

“Sicat effectively captures a society crumbling not from natural or man-made disasters but from persisting norms and religion. The film’s landscape is bleak, one where reminders of an unforgotten desolation tower over empty fields and derelict forests.” (Read full review)

3.5         Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“The film just has so much story to tell. But through it all, the ambition sells the emotion, the epic scale of the imagery able to provide some sort of cathartic release.” (Read full review)

2.5         Manuel Pangaruy (Tagailog Special Presents)

1.0         Mario Bautista (Showbiz Portal)

“The cumbersomeness of the whole on-screen proceedings makes us steadily lose our interest and our patience simply because we just don’t care what would happen to any of the characters.” (Read full review)
