Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story
(2011)

Nice!
Manila kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story is written by Lopez Nepomuceno and directed by Tikoy aguiluz, It is an action movie which starred Jorge Estregan (Asiong), Carla Abellana (Angela), Philip Salvador (Policeman), Baron Geisler (Boy Toothpick), among others. Asiong Salonga is the husband of Angela. Even though he is too young to think of it, Asiong wants to rule Manila. But there is the group of Totoy Golem, who is the antagonist. The group of Totoy Golem got angry with Asiong because he stopped the illegal activities of the group. The group of Totoy Golem is known for illegal gambling and drugs. The group was paralyzed. One of the members of Totoy Golem's group was killed by Totoy Golem himself when he learned that the member was spreading the rumor that the group was afraid of Asiong.

The setting of the story is in Tondo, Manila. The dialogue of the casts is so frightening. The audience think that the dialogue is only use in street-sides. The special effects of the movie is awesome. Actually, the movie was only a remake of the movie ''Asiong Salonga'' that happened in 1961. Some of the cast was very good in acting but the other cast was needs improvement for his/her acting.

5/10
