"Subdued but powerful." - FRED HAWSON (ABS-CBN News)
"A somber sequel that is a spectacular indictment of idolatry. Incredible cinematography and production design...as well as a powerful musical score. It's a slow burn through the first half, but it's never boring and always beautiful." - MIGUEL ESCOBAR (ESQUIRE.PH)
“Entertainingly ejects specific nuggets of history from the confines of typical deference, subverting them and converting them into bittersweet accounts of a nation that right from the start has begun to drug itself with etching whatever glory out of the hollow achievements of hollow heroes." - OGGS CRUZ (RAPPLER)
"A somber tale of introspection with furtive yet fierce intensity marshaled by Tarog’s trademark craftsmanship." - ARMANDO DELA CRUZ (UNREEL.PH)
