2.5         Mariae Francesca Ramos (Business World)

“Poor storytelling of a messy plot weighs down the movie’s potential to create a lasting impression.” (Read full review)

2.0         Zig Marasigan (Rappler)

“While there’s an obvious passion for music and dance, there’s also an obvious lack of passion for proper filmmaking and storytelling. What starts out as a charming love story quickly spirals into a melodrama fit for an afternoon soap opera.” (Read full review)

1.0         Philbert Dy (Click the City)

Kaleidoscope World mires itself in overwrought dramatic elements that have nothing to do with the music or hip-hop culture as a whole. It stretches everything out to an unbearable length, the film growing more cringeworthy with every passing second.” (Read full review)

1.0         Nicol Latayan (Tit for Tat)

“The discography of Francis Magalona is the only bright spot in this otherwise mess of a film, but I feel more sorry because it seems that it was rushed just to make it in the festival.” (Read full review)


One thought on “Kaleidoscope World

  1. Hope you guys can just see it for yourselves and judge for yourselves. Don’t let a handful of people tell you what to think. I enjoyed every minute of the film when I watched it last Jan3 in Festival Mall Alabang. Since no one is defending them, I will because I could say I got my money’s worth in this film compared to the other festival films I’ve watched. I’ve been searching online for statements from the producers but looks like they are quiet. Maybe they prefer peace knowing how chaotic the media world is. I don’t know what their reason is but I think those who enjoyed Kaleidoscope World like me should stand up and share the wonderful experience. Do not let people dictate your preferences. I like dance and I like FrancisM music and this film truly inspired my being a TRUE Filipino once more!
