RESUREKSYON (2015) Review
Directed by Alfonso Torre III
With the rising numbers of TV series and movies featuring zombies, vampires and other monsters, it’s no surprise that we’re getting another one from our own country. Resureksyon was fine but it lack thrills, tension and a solid story to back up its most interesting storyline; the relationship of the sisters. The film has a big potential but it stumbles as it uses more time trying to create action sequences between the vampires and the humans.
Jasmine Curtis-Smith and Paulo Avelino continues to prove their acting capabilities while Isabelle Daza is lucky enough to land a role of being a vampire. It’s really sad that what could’ve been a good and maybe a start of a franchise turns out to be a so-so film that doesn’t try to be better. It’s core story, hasn’t been dug enough for it to have an impact in the end. It could have been a better storyline as its focus in the end was their relationship to each other.
Our rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
