In an age rocked by drugs and a culture in danger of folding to bad influences, rival high school
basketball players clash on and off the basketball court because of different lifestyles/values. A tragic
event transforms their rivalry into a bond as they discover the meaning of friendship (Kaibigan), faith
and the redemption that follows.
I love how this movie is conservative and inspiring, yet super fun, with an exciting and action packed story. I find it very realistic, a life story that is relatable to all. I also love how the movie is in English - just like how Mulan and Aladdin (Both set in foreign countries) are in English - which makes the movie feel very Hollywood and international. It is easy to understand, with a great message :)
The movie is too conservative for me. Also, I find it extremely unrealistic. Every one speaks good English with accent! The setting is a public school in the Philippines. How can everyone be so that good. I’m not saying public school student can’t speak English. It’s just awkward that everyone speaks English even during lunch breaks and so on.
