I hesitated first because I hated Matti's Tik-tik, but this, this is a very well crafted film...

On the ending though... I would have preferred if Daniel (Gerald) is the one who whacked Tatang (Torre) instead, killing his very own mentor... makes sense really, since Tatang is now expendable to Gen. Pacheco's group. It should have ended in full circle making Daniel as the new Hitman...

that's the beauty of the movie.. the unexpected turn of events.. that's what i initially thought would happen, but that unexpected ending really made the movie..

My long-overdue review of OTJ (On The Job)
http://mozzathemoviezz.wordpress.com/2013/09/14/review-otj-on-the-job/

You may want to edit your review. Shaina Magdayao played the role of the senator's daughter, not Empress Schuck, and is Piolo Pascual's wife in the film, not his lover.

I wonder if body doubles were utilized for the jerjer scenes.

Canadian critic nominates ‘Breaking Bad’ actor to star in ‘On The Job’ Hollywood remake
InterAksyon.com · Wednesday, October 2, 2013 · 3:02 pm

Bryan Cranston as Walter White in 'Breaking Bad' and Joel Torre as Tatang in 'On The Job'.

A planned Hollywood remake of “On The Job” was announced as early as April even before it wowed critics during its world premiere at the Directors Fortnight section of the 66th Cannes International Film Festival.

The current North American theatrical release of “On The Job” has only fanned the flames for the Hollywood version. On Tuesday, one Canadian critic, Chris Bumbray of Joblo.com, nominated “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston to play Tatang, the lead role of the veteran hitman essayed so brilliantly by Joel Torre.

“This would be a great role for someone like Bryan Cranston in an American redux — which apparently is already on the books,” wrote Bumbray, who found both Torre and co-star Gerald Anderson “terrific” in their roles as prison inmates who get day passes to carry out assassinations for a crime syndicate run by military men and politicians in cahoots with prison officials.

Cranston won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series three consecutive times for his role as Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher turned drug manufacturer and kingpin, in the acclaimed series “Breaking Bad”.

XYZ Films, a Los-Angeles based production company, has obtained the “On The Job” story rights and assigned the project to Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur.

Anderson, who plays the other lead role of assassin-in-training, dropped the names of Hollywood heavyweights Tom Cruise and Mark Wahlberg (star of two Kormakur movies, “Contraband” and “2 Guns”) as potential lead actors in an interview with local media in June.

Can anyone confirm if The Road or Graceland are indeed out there in BD formats?

BTW, I checked Bluray.com and although there is a listing for The Road, there is no review present. For Graceland, there was a full review, but could this be considered a "Filipino" bluray? sure, the director has Filipino blood but the producers are foreigners...

I don't have it myself, but there is an Amazon listing for The Road Blu-ray:

http://www.amazon.com/The-Road-Blu-ray-TJ-Trinidad/dp/B009AFXUEY/ref=tmm_blu_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1386461526&sr=1-4

A quick google also found this announcement for the home video release:

http://one.neilrara.com/2012/06/20/the-road-movie-to-be-released-on-dvd-this-july/

I have the Blu-ray of Graceland. I guess this film can be considered a "middle-of-the-road" thing. It's in Filipino, has a Filipino-American director, a Filipino cast, a mixed crew & features a locally set story. Not sure, but I guess it's formally credited as a USA-Philippines co-production?

Very good with quality production values. I think it's probably the best mainstream Filipino film this year.

I agree with you.  Sa wakas, Nagkaroon din ng tayo ng isang maayos na palabas at maayos na director.

I bought the local DVD.

Transfer is pristine.

It has the director's commentary and 17 minutes of deleted scenes. No making-of and no trailer. I'm wondering if this will be the same version of the film released on DVD/Blu-ray in the States, since the commentary is clearly meant for international audiences (explanation on Nino Muhlach being a famous child star, etc.)

By the way, the deleted scenes are weird to access. You access them by going to "Director's Commentary" on the menu.

The article is inaccurate. I have both The Road and Graceland on Bluray, both bought from Amazon.

Speaking of that, who would you cast in a Hollywood remake?

Just thought if this now. Note that I'm picking actors to not just make a good film but to also make money. :D


I would go Mel Gibson or Denzel for the Tatang (Joel Torre) role and Joseph Gordon-Levitt for the Gerald Anderson role. Piolo would be played by James Franco. The warden would be Tim Robbins. Sarge Joey Marquez would be played by John Turturro. Piolo's father in law would be Alec Baldwin.

Angel Aquino would be played by Julianne Moore while Shaina's role should go to Lindsay Lohan or Anne Hathaway. Tatang's daughter should be played by Ellen Page (Juno). Vivian Velez (the handler, Thelma) should be played by Kim Basinger.

I'd probably set this movie in Boston or Philly.
