      Audience Member Love is worth fighting for. True to its movie tagline, this is a wonderful and nice period and romance movie which also explicitly promotes Baler and Aurora province as a place to visit with the use of scenic sights as a background. This theme also qualifies it as a good travel movie. This is a period romance movie about ill-fated love with historical background about The Siege of Baler. If you're into a historical movie with a twist of conflict and romance, then this film is for you. Actually, I was driven to watch this movie when I visited Baler. It made me curious about it and the awards it earned at the 2008 Metro Manila Film Festival in which it took home a lot of honors including the Best Picture award. Though, Baler is not a perfect movie, one of which is the unnecessary subplot of a second love team within the story, it was overall well-written, true to the life performances of the actors and has a good story to tell about Philippine history. It was after watching it, I realized that it deserve the awards it won at the 2008 MMFF. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This one's a bit affecting my intestine...

Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member A dragging historical movie with an awkward love story thrown in the middle of the chaos. Jericho is the only saving grace. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A fantastic movie that I saw when I visited Manila in Christmas 2008. Love, war, tragedy,comedy, birth,death it is all there!
