On the Job (2013)


This movie is beautiful despite the fact that it depicts the dirtier aspects of our country - geographically, politically, socially speaking. Seriously, this movie is a must-see for everybody. Everything is well put together, the music is exciting, the editing and cinematography is professionally done, the story is tight, the camera-work is engaging a work of art, a labor of love. It's that good, the opening scene captures your attention, and the ending leaves you satisfied or wanting more. It's perfect. 

They movie has good acting, good story and good speed. It's never boring and is made well. There is lots of action and it's done very well. The actors are well cast and their acting is good too. There is a story and we get to see the life in Manila. The shooting is realistic and so are the action scenes. This movie is way better than that and lot's of Hollywood action movies. If you like action movies this is for you and it will keep you on edge right through.

In the Philippines, the abundant crime and poverty suffered on the streets is blamed on the corrupt politicians and police force.
Mario and Daniel are two prisoners who are regularly released from prison to perform hits for their boss Thelma. The film opens with the duo murdering a man named Tiu.
Daniel is young and reckless, sending some of his money home, spending the rest on goods he can trade for privileges in the prison. Mario, due to get out soon, uses his money to support his wife (who really wants nothing to do with him). He's also paying for his daughter's law school tuition, as she is unaware that he is in prison and thinks he is away working. After the hit, they are sent back.
Since the two have worked together for so long, Daniel has come to see Mario as a father figure. Mario views Daniel as a son, teaching him to make hits.
