Finally saw the Star Cinema-released DVD of On The Job. It's easily the slickest Pinoy action movie that I've ever seen. It felt overrated though (or maybe I just had too much expectations). There's something off with the narrative's flow - it's is a bit disjointed & I didn't really connect with the characters, although Joel Torre is a standout. I also pre-ordered the international version on Buray. I heard that it's a different cut; I'm hoping that it's a better edited version.

It is a really good film, just watched it awhile ago,
but I can't help but feel na parang napakaDARK ng dating sa akin ng movie,
parang sobrang dilim ng plot, it good though...

I just dont feel fine hearing those PI's uttered in good scenes. Pwede namang wala ang mga yun.  >:(

There could be a better actor than Joey Marquez. Papiyok-piyok pa siya. His voice is not nice for a serious movie like the OJT.  :(

I think there is a good reason kung bakit si Joey Marquez ang napili, may scene doon si Joey with his son na effective naman, muntik nga ako ma-iyak  :'(

Kung may Hollywood remake, siguro si Jim Carrey ang pipiliin ko na gumanap sa role ni "Tsong" Joey.

I agree with this. There was an interesting article in Esquire when the film came out - Marquez stepped in for Richard Gomez, who dropped out to run for office in Ormoc. Not sure he would've done a better job, but he probably wouldn't have come across as a comic relief.

They also said Gerald Anderson role was initially offered to John Lloyd Cruz, who couldn't fit it into his schedule. It also implies that Piolo Pascual was pushed out of the project for a while, and Derek Ramsay was attached to the film (I'm guessing in Pascual's role).

It certainly would have made for a very different film.

The only non-negotiable in the casting was Joel Torre.  8)

i don't remember where i read this, but the international cut of OJT does not include scenes with JOey Marquez's son storyline in the movie. the lovemaking scene of piolo and shaina was also not shown in the international cut..

For me, this was an ok movie. A+ for Matti's effort in directing. At least, this movie is a nice refresher for Philippine cinema. Si Gerald Anderson, parang hindi bagay sa ganitong role. Parang sa mukha niya is mabait siya, not a scary killing dude. Kahit may bigo-bigote pa. Tsaka parang ang awkward nung love-making scene. This will be remade by Hollywood, right? Sana ma-polish pa ng husto.  ^-^

I think the casting of Gerald Anderson was great and was surprised with his acting skill. His portrayal of the character was very good. IMO, it was the conversion of him being a naive / "young"  crime guy in the world and into him gradually becoming like "Tatang". Hence, he was being trained to be a stone cold assassin. He portrayed his too mabait / naive character when he was told to kill somebody on his own silently and to look them in the eye (tama ba?).

i agree. personally i do not like Gerald Anderson. but his role here was perfect for him..

Gerald is ok except his voice; it doesn't fit his look.  Joey is surprisingly effective.  The veteran supporting actors are all great.  Piolo I think is the weakest link. He faded in the background.

hindi bagay yung role kay gerald imo. masyado syang tisoy at magandang lalaki para sa role. tingin ko may ibang artista pa na babagayan nung role na yun.

overall maganda naman yung movie. refreshing.

at napakaganda talaga ni Angel Aquino! damn! hindi kumukupas!

It has been a while when I came across a Filipino movie that I completely watch from first to end. The last Filipino movie I watched on DVD was Insiang.

I like the dark tone of the movie however it wasn't dark enough. I think they have scratched the surface of making an impact not only in the movie industry but soceity as well.

Characters were likeable but there wass room for more development. They tried this when Acosta (Marquez) was trying to be the father to his son.  Daniel being the good son to his family, etc. I think to many characters trying to be depicted in short vignettes in an already long 2 hour movie.

Gerald was out of place, I like his demeanor and swagger and all but hearing him curse was I think unnatural for him. Hindi malutong yung PIs or Tis. It was close to being "Budoy" like, no pun intended.

What I really like was the soundtrack/score. It certainly fits the scene and it was not distracting.

Overall, its something different from my perspective. I haven't watched that too many of Filipino films in the last decade and I think its time to watch more.

^ The sex scene between Piolo Pascual and Shaina Magdayao is said to be cut from the international version released on Blu-ray. Maybe it's just included in the "deleted scenes" feature.
