What I like about the Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga story, how they executed their production setting. It looked like they did not come short to their budget. The black and white cinematography looked fine also and it did not sacrifice the other elements in each scenes. I appreciate also the scenes wherein, they put it on slow motion and it made the scenes to be more highlighted.
What I did not like about the movie was the action scenes itself. Almost every action scene there would be guns being fired. Personally, I don’t like hearing gunshots so somewhat I got a little paranoid while watching the movie on those parts (forgive me for being subjective here).
Also, some scenes which included Asiong kissing his wife looked misplaced and would have been better if it was just a smack on the lips, nothing more. Another thing, E.R. Ejercito lacked more in acting and projecting how Asiong really is.
