great parody
5 July 2004 | by foutiroirSee all my reviews

Of course, with 250'000$ budget, it's impossible to have the spectacular result of Spider-Man. Yet, this movie is better than the American original. Full of humor (some scenes could have been done by the Monty Pythons!), the movie offers us also an interesting look on poverty and politics in Philippines. The colors (a lot in this movie) remember the Philippines comics, and make the townships look like in soap operas. The 2nd degree - always present - make this movie interesting for both adults and kids. Actors are good in this comedy, doing enough to make us laugh and passing emotions through the screen. Well done! Thanks Matti & Co!
