Jose Rizal, Andres Bonifacio, Gregorio del Pilar, and Emilio Aguinaldo are just some of our heroes in the Philippines. We can easily recognize them because we study them in our history class and we can read them in our textbooks. Luckily, these heroes had been made into a film in our convenient and I could say it is very helpful to our learning process in school. Hopefully, all of our heroes will be made into a movie and thankfully we have a movie now entitled “Heneral Luna”. It depicts Antonio Luna’s life, one of our heroes.

Heneral Luna

The film, “Heneral luna”, is directed by Jerrold Tarog and produced by Artikulo Uno Productions. It relays the story of General Antonio Luna as he leads the rebellious Filipinos military during the Philippine-American War. The movie starts with the ill feeling towards the American colonizers and undoubtedly end with the death of Antonio Luna.

Heneral Luna Cast

General Antonio Luna is played by John Arcilla. We can see other characters like Emilio Aguinaldo, Joven Hernando, Apolinario Mabini, Gregorio del Pilar, Paco Roman, Eduardo Rusca, Manuel Bernal, and Jose Bernal. They are played by Mon Confiado, Arron Villaflor, Jeffrey Quizon, Paulo Avelino, Joem Bascon, Archie Alemania, Arthur Acuña, and Alex Vincent Medina respectively. I believe these actors are good artist as well.

Heneral Luna - John Arcilla

This movie shows the good and bad sides of Antonio Luna not like what we use to see in a Filipino hero movie where they always highlight the goodness of an individual. In this show, you will see him get hurt, angry, and curse. Plus, you will find yourself effortly laughing with some of the characters and its dialogue


What amazes me with this film is that it is selected to represent our country in the Academy Award or The Oscar 2016 in the category for Best Foreign Language. Hopefully, they could win. Moreover, the movie is now highest-grossing Filipino historical film of all time. What are you waiting for? It’s never been too late to watch this movie. If you do this, you are supporting them and our industry in Philippine movies.
