Movie Review: Saturday Night Chills

Aimless and bored with their everyday lives, three Chinoy friends spend their weekend nights together hanging out in brothels and bars. One night, the guys bump into their former class loser. Later on, the guys find out that he is a reputable “Banka” (bookie) in the illegal sports gambling scheme (Odds) in the Philippines. With their eagerness to be released from their average lives,they enter the world of “Odds”. Soon enough, the guys are already earning big money, but all good things are meant to come to an end when an unexpected incident will test their friendship and will permanently change their lives. 

It’s so refreshing to take to see these 3 mainstream actors doing this edgy and extreme movie about the bad side of youth nowadays. The film is a series of events of 3 friends doing illicit activities like clubbing, drinking, stealing, drugs and prostitution. Then one day they involve in the gambling activity and the consequences of their life start there.

Makaka relate yung mga single guys na happy go lucky sa movie na ito. If you want to see the naughty side of Joseph Marco, Rayver Cruz and Mateo Guidecelli , watch this film. You will see them throwing foul and bad words.  If you gauge the acting of the 3 pinakalumutang si Rayver na nakapagbigay ng maayos at natural na pagganap. Next si Joseph na medyo ok ok lang there are some of the scenes na medyo awkward at hindi natural yung dating sa kanya. Then for Mateo the only problem wih him is the diction and throwing of words dahil nabubulol siya sa pagtatagalog at sa punto niya na bisaya pero yung weakness na iyon ang nagdagdag ng saya sa audience at sa character niya dahil kahit yung mga seryoso na eksena e natatawa sa kanya ang audience dahil on the way he speaks but he’s good in the film.

Actually there are some of the scenes for the 3 na parang di natural yung dating and awkward lalo na doon sa pagpapakita ng naughty side or yung pagkakaexecute lang siguro lalo na doon sa first part ng film.  Mas natural pa and effective ang acting ni David Chua sa pagpapakita ng angas ,yabang at attitude sa pelikula na medyo kinulang yung tatlo. David is good here in the film. Hindi rin ganun kabuo yung story parang ang dating lang nung film is just a series of events. Simple lang ang plot ng film and if your fan of Mateo, Rayver and Joseph you will definitely enjoy this film.

My Verdict:  2.5/5
