Movie Review: Deadma Walking

A Palanca-winning comedy about gay best friends for life John (Joross Gamboa) and Mark (Edgar Allan Guzman) whose friendship is put to the test when one of them has a terminal illness and asks the other to help him stage his fake death, wake, and funeral as his dying wish. The result is a laughfest of "deadly" proportions.

Deadma Walking is a big-hearted, crowd-pleaser laugh out loud film that just happens to be so competently made. With its fast paced and cleverly written hilarious screenplay, Deadma Walking will surely make you laugh at the edge of your seat. I totally enjoyed the whole film and got affected with its heartwarming ending. Joross Gamboa and Edgar Allan Guzman nailed it as subtle and flamboyant gay respectively. Their great acting, especially by Edgar Allan, who has most of the funny scenes,
makes it enjoyable and very entertaining to follow their characters through their ups and downs while Joross made his mark in his own quiet way which you can feel his sincerity.

The musical numbers are so engaging and deliciously done to follow the flow of the story. Its fast paced editing, snappy transition and abundance of style production design are added elements to make this film worth watching. Make sure to watch this film for its appealing story and entertaining acting from  the two good underrated actors Joross Gamboa and Edgar Allan Guzman. Deadma Walking is a solid and inspiring film about friendship that will make you laugh and cry at the same time.

My Verdict:  4.5/5
