One More Try - Movie Review

*photo not mine*



One More Try is Star Cinema’s solely produced film in this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival. The genre is heavy romance / drama.

One More Try is starred Angel Locsin, Angelica Panganiban, Dingdong Dantes, and Zanjoe Marudo.  Ruel S. Bayani, who directed this emotion packed film, was also the director of last year's box office hit, No Other Woman.

The story was about the lives of two couples who love each other deeply, a mother who will do everything for her dying child, a husband/father who is longing to be with his son and who dreams about having his child, a wife who will fight for her husband and a lover who will wait for his love. 


ADMIT ONE ---  I watched this movie with my High School friends.. :)


Their married life was merely perfect for Edward and Jacq (Dingdong Dantes and Angelica Panganiban) until Grace (Angel Locsin) came into the scene. Grace was Edward's ex-girlfriend. Grace needed the help of Edward to save their dying child - Botchok. The kid needs a bone marrow transplant to cure his serious illness. They did everything they could (in vitro, searching for possible donors, even his father (Edward) tissue-typing match) but they failed which led them to the last option possible. Grace and Edward needed to have another child in order to save the life of Botchok. You can never imagine how Jacq and Tristan (Zanjoe Marudo) will react on this situation. Akward, indeed. There are twists in the story which made it up a happy ending. But for me, the ending was so unrealistic. See, for what happened, they just forgave each other and even gathered together for a celebration, which I think its really impossible in reality.


One More Try is okay. It’s half a good movie.

There are things to like about it for sure: good performances, maybe good writing, some ideas about love & parenthood.

I just wish that it had been brave enough to explore darker possibilities, and had the guts to try and be realistic, try and say something true.
