^ 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.

ordered bluray of this at amazon.. recently bought the local dvd also but hesitant at first because of the price..(600p). from what i see, the local dvd version has director's commentary and 19 deleted scenes with optional commentary while the international bluray release has 'the making of' featurette and deleted scenes, not sure if it has the director's commentary.. and also not sure if they have the same deleted scenes included..

^ Based on the Blu-ray.com review, there is no director's commentary on the BD release. The following are the listed BD extras:

    Making Of (480i; 6:37) is a pretty rote EPK with interviews and clips from the film.
    Deleted Scenes (480i; 37:52)
    Trailer (1080p; 2:07)

watching it the 2nd time, the first dinner scene of joel torre and angel aquino and his daughter and introduction of her bf, all their gestures made a lot of sense :)

I watched this yesterday and liked it... Hindi ako normally nanonood ng Pinoy film, but dahil sa usapan dito na curious ako...

The movie was really nice.. sana laging ganito ang mga pelikulang pinoy. Kaya naman palang gumawa ng matinong pelikula ng Pinoy eh... bat ayaw gayanin ng iba?

Watched this over the weekend. Thumbs up for the production. I really liked the musical scores but they could have improved it by balancing the upbeat ones with the dark scores for the dark scenes. Parang na-overpower nung upbeat scores yung buong movie.

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.

Eh kay Diana (Gerald's GF) sinong bagay mag portray???  >:D

Mas okay siguro kung detroit. kaso, i'm wondering if the gun--for-hire scheme can really be tagged into U.S. politics?? Kasi dito sa Philippine context, we can really relate since this is one of Philippine politic's well-known secret. Dunno if they can sell it on an American context though..

I have the Pinoy released DVD which is loaded with features and the picture quality is excellent.  I've also ordered the Bluray from Amazon.  It's just taking time to get here because I live outside the US.  I know that the US released version is a shorter cut, which is fine by me because I think that it needs the trimming.  It's weird that the audio commentary is not included in the US release since as far as I can remember in the local release, the commentary was done in English.  I'll verify that when it arrives.

I agree with some comments here re gerald anderson not being bagay sa role, masyado busog ang itsura nya for a preso na hitman. Also sa sobrang dami ng PI minsan paranf off na hindi na realistic. But overall this is a good movie for a pinoy film.

Thanks. Looking forward to your verification. The way Matti did the commentary also made it seem it would be for and international release of the film - he was explaining that Nino Muhlach was a former child star, etc.

Also, can someone with both versions comment on the difference in running time? How many minutes were excised?

On the DVD the uncut sex scenes of Piolo/Shaina and Gerald/whatsherface are there. As well as the cameo with Rosanna Roces and the subplot of Joey Marquez's character's son.

I have no info on the Bluray edition.

just watched my copy of OTJ bd from amazon. haven't watched the international cut yet in its entirety but the HD was superb, just the deleted scenes and the making of which was just a short behind the scenes and interviews with the cast. the BD includes new and extended deleted scenes not found in the dvd. the dvd however includes the director's commentary on each deleted scene, the bd just plays the deleted scenes continuously without any commentary. i especially liked the extended tatang teaching daniel scenes showing how daniel evolved to become ready for the killing.

i guess you would have to double dip the bd and the local dvd to get all the special features. sayang lng sana nainclude un director's commentary on the movie and deleted scenes sa bd.

the international version runs 116min and the local version 120min. as discussed the international version does not include Acosta's son angle and the piolo shaina sex scene and the last scene where rayver cruz get's piolo's iphone in the evidence room. these were not included in the deleted scenes of the bd as well..

i watched the bluray

first of all, its AMAZING to see a pinoy movie in full 1080p high definition. why did it take this long!?!!?!?!?!?

pinoy directors/film makers need to stress using bluray if they want to show the world how they meant to see the film.

The movie itself was great. it had a bit of a twist at the end I didnt see coming. pretty good thriller. thought the story was strong.

also being on bluray the sound is nice too! if you nave a PROPERLY setup surround sound system, meaning 5.1 or more. 3 speakers up front, surround in the back, etc.  the sound team should also get credit. they used the entire sound space nicely. with rains and gunshots going across the back speakers when it should.. and no pinoys. just cause you have speakers everywhere, if they are all playing at the same time with the same thing, ,that doesnt mean you have surround sound. it means you have speakers everywhere playing the same sound. its different.

I was very satisfied on this movie all together, but really a step and hoping to see more pinoy movies in HD bluray

I couldn't find Metro Manila anywhere in the US.  OTJ was available both in WalMart and Best Buy in Orlando but, strangely, not in NYC.

OT:  The Region B UK release for Metro Manila will be out on March 10, 2014, but I don't think a Region A US BD release has been announced yet.

Finally got my OTJ Bluray

Running time:
1:55:19

Audio:
Filipino 5.1 DTS HDMA
Filipino 2.0 Stereo

Subtitles:
English
Off

Features:
Making off
Deleted scenes
Trailer

Just seen the international cut in this BD.  I like it better than the local cut: more focused, lean and efficient.  The ending is different and there's no subplot with Joey characters' family.  in the local cut there was a sex scene that was an inter-cut between 2 couples.  In the international but, it's only a sex scene for one couple.  I think there are also some minor scenes that's been cut or deleted. But, I think I also noticed some added small scenes that's not in the local cut.  I've seen the local cut a while back so I can't remember for sure.

Finally saw what they're raving about last 2013. I hardly see anything local since the time of FPJ reruns on tv from my high school days. I just saw the international cut probably based on the comments/posts in this thread. Too bad, I didn't see Shaina's scene and just Dawn's little thingies.

It's good in general except there was miscast in some roles like the lead Gerald, Papa P., Angel, Rayver. Probably they had some compromise with the ABS CBN managers to use their awful talents and make this film going through Star Cinema banner. Joey Marquez was quite good as this obnoxious cop but I can see little emotions in his face unlike Gerald and Angel who doesn't know how to act or sometimes overacts. The best was showing his dirty finger in the end chase hehe.

Joel Torre carried this movie and it's not a surprise since he is a character actor. Michael de Mesa was also good and quite better than Leo Martinez. The soundtrack was also good since they used local bands.

There's one scene that caught me, there's this prisoner with the same actual shots as Gerald did in prison and it turned out he was just a replacement. Probably it led the audience his death or some sorts. Astig.

They could have used some unknown cast who can really act and not these tisoys/mestizas who doesn't belong in the slums of Manila. Found it to be unrealistic if they want to stick to an indie vibe. An Evoque-driving NBI agent? Come on. Leila de Lima would be envious of him.
what?! are you talkin' to me!!!
