The lead actor fails to portray his role convincingly. In some dramatic scenes, he seems unable to give the proper facial expression needed. He seems to be smiling in most of them. Proper emotion is lacking in most of his dialogues. The film is touted as a "thriller" but unfortunately, it isn't. It's the first Filipino film I've seen in a long, long while.
Xian showed that he can portray any role from this movie onward. He is exceptionally talented.
