She's Dating The Gangster: Filipino Movie Review

Well, he’s irritating, loud, and he’s not sweet! He’s weird, he smokes, he drinks, he goes clubbing on a weekday, and he fights and bullies a lot. Take note, A LOT. He is very moody and a bit blunt. Oh yeah, he even threatened to kill me. -- for short, HE IS A GANGSTER.’   
         - Athena Dizon, She's Dating the Gangster

    A story based on two simultaneous generations, about love and timing and how timing could be a bitch. A story about Kenneth Delos Reyes, who hated his father Kenji Delos Reyes, who suddenly gets into an accident and then Kenneth meets Kelay Dizon, who begins telling him the love story of his father and the other woman Athena Dizon.

      She’s Dating The Gangster is a Filipino teen romantic-comedy-drama movie which was released in 2014, based on the best-selling novel with the same name ‘She’s Dating The Gangster’ published on and grew very popular on Wattpad, written by Bianca Bernardino who writes with the pen name SGwannaB. She’s Dating the Gangster is a Pinoy film directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, starring Kathryn Bernardo, who plays young Athena Dizon/ Kelay Dizon and Daniel Padilla, who plays young Kenji Delos Reyes/ Kenneth Delos Reyes.
       This Filipino movie by Cathy Garcia-Molina is produced by Star Cinema and Summit Media, in the Philippines, released on July 16th 2014, earning a box office domestic of PHP 262,692,540 and $333,000 in USA and Canada in only 10 days.
    The film, She’s Dating the Gangster, was a huge success in the Philippines and had various international screenings as well in countries like the United States, Canada, Australia and United Arab Emirates. The film had a lot of positive reviews from various fans and critics and currently holds a 83% rating according to Rotten Tomatoes with an average rating score of 4.3 star out of 5.

        The film seems to be a very entertaining movie and fans who love romantic comedy and drama would absolutely love it. The movie is in Tagalog and English and I personally being a non-Filipino speaker, didn’t have much problem understanding it, thanks to English subtitles. The very idea of having the movie being a narrated story of a father and his love story with the son’s love story in the current generation simultaneously was a great concept which I personally seem to love. As the name of the movie says, She’s Dating the Gangster, is a story of Kenji Delos Keyes who happened to be a gangster when he was young and then how love changed him and his life. Won’t put much focus on the story as things are better in suspense until you watch it.

     Would I recommend anyone to watch this movie? Oh yes. Doesn't matter whether you’re a teenager or an adult, She’s Dating The Gangster is totally an entertaining Filipino movie and I think the movie is totally worth a watch.
