Movie Review: Dukot

Image courtesy of www.twitter.com

Main Cast:  Enrique Gil, Christopher de Leon, Shaina Magdayao
Director: Paul Soriano
MTRCB Rating: R-13
Produced by: Star Cinema and TEN17P

With the spate of crimes in the Philippines where every neighborhood fears about unsafe streets, drug addicts, kidnappings  and burglaries,  director Paul Soriano takes a cue and conveys what goes on in the hearts of both the criminal and his victim. He steps in to thematic territory that is not often covered with such gross detail. Thankfully, the indie movie takes a balance, not capitalizing on the plight of the poor.

Enrique Gil’s ‘Dukot’ is a first of its kind for the young actor, an action-suspense thriller film that was based on real-life events, notably on the grief and suffering of a kidnap victim Carlo (Enrique) and his middle-class family – lawyer father, Charlie Sandoval (Ricky Davao), sister Cathy (Shaina) and mother Cecille (Bing Pimentel).

Film revolves around Carlo’s kidnapping when the criminal group (headed by Ping and Alex Medina) barges into his sister Cathy’s yoga studio and taking him  along with their loot. The commotion and chaos are real and calculating.

The scenes that followed after reveal the unimaginable ordeal of the victim’s family, details in real life of which are often kept away from the public eye. The gang’s every move is calculated and bold as they brazenly talk with the family for ransom. 

True to his previous statement, director Paul loves working with the likes of his idol, multi-awarded indie film director Lav Diaz (Hele sa  Hiwaga Hapis) to get a piece of their genius, which has obviously rubbed off on him on this film. The precise execution of each scene, the details, acting – no one actor did not shine.  

Carlo’s torment, as he languishes for days alone in that locked, filthy room is quite poignant  -  hungry, dirty, almost on the brink of losing his mind – while he peeps in that one single hole watching his captors celebrate a family member’s birthday with lavish food.

Shaina is competent as Cathy, a daughter trying to balance between guilt and a brave front for brother Carlo and her parents who feel that a time bomb ticking in their heads trying to raise the huge ransom money. Charlie is very effective, pictured as a model father who also succumbs to corruption in the workplace and justifies it.

Christopher de Leon wins aplomb for this film as the criminal gang’s accomplice,  probably a first where he is not a rich, strict and jet setting executive. As manong Johnny, he looks unkempt, unshaven, quiet – a father who is also worried sick of his own son’s predicament.

Enrique will best be remembered for this film – a far cry from his past movies. He has character to carry out Carlo’s role with such depth and maturity.

 ‘Dukot’ gives a stark contrast between two fathers – Charlie and manong Johnny. Towards the movie’s end, manong Johnny’s emotion is perfectly captured as he gives out a big sigh of relief to finally meet his son, while Charlie awaits with bated breath for his Carlo. All good fathers are alike, regardless of circumstances and social status.

Despite some minor lapses, Dukot is certainly worth watching. Pacing is fast, don’t blink your eyes. Worth mentioning, too, is the movie’s musical score and sound that give it that needed oomph.   

Dukot also stars Ricky Davao, Ping Medina, Bing Pimentel, Alex Medina, Bang Garcia, Dino Pastrano, now showing in cinemas.

    4. Tell that to the family who actually had to go through this experience in real life.
      Filipinos are always quick to downplay ang mga gawa ng kapwa. Di na lang maging proud! Paul Soriano did a great job with this film as he always does! Appreciate nman ang mga local films te, wag puro mema.

    10. It's based on a true story that happened years ago, 2:39pm. Altho' they put a twist on the real story..the kidnapped victim was the son of a prominent family in the south (hacienderos), goes to school in manila (the owned a house in mla.), the family paid the ransom but the kidnappers killed the young man...it was big news in the city where the victim came from..a sad and terrifying time for the family...the name carlo in the movie is actually his brother's name.

    11. True to life story, shallow? How deep do you want it? Like a love story kind of depth?

    12. Just because it's based on a true story doesn't automatically mean it's going to be a very nice movie.

    13. 12:11 Tama ka naman. But in this case, most people who REALLY watched the movie sabi maganda. And most critics say the same thing.

      Delete
    14. 12:11 define "nice movie" kasi I don't see Dukot as a "nice movie" more on gritty, eye opening, socially relevant movie, kailangan mo pa bang ma kidnap para malamn mong hindi shallow yung emotional trauma na pinag daanan nung real life victims?

    3. I'm not a fan pinanood ko lang to out of curiosity and Enrique was awesome in the film, I personally love the scene where he was just looking around and heavily breathing then Boyet shows up in the door, that's what convinces me that this guy is an actor.

    4. If you mean difficult to watch b/c he was battered and bruised, then yes, I agree. But he was soooo good. For a young actor, he still has so much more to offer.

    7. I can't think of any other young actor to portray Carlo. I thought Enrique Gil was the perfect choice unless you can think of someone better but please let us know and explain why. Paul Soriano's careful casting paid off because everyone did their job and more.
      Literally everyone in this film was phenomenal!

    8. Oh i see mas gusto mo yung straight up, in your face sigawan acting? With couple of curses here and there

      Boyet De Leon and Enrique Gil are the MVP's for me in this movie Shaina is 2nd then Ricky Davao and lastly Medina bros

All praises si Ricky and even si Direk Paul sa acting ni Enrique. I believe kasi nanunuod ako ng Dolce Amore at galing na galing ako kay Enrique sa pag perform ng iba iban transformations ng character niya sa DA, he is a versatile and brilliant actor, guapo pa sa TV screen.

  7. Oh God! You call that medocre? Speechless acting with all the eyes you could feel his pain, agony & survival for life. I can't agree with you. It was one of a kind performance as an actor. Eye acting is a blessing. Never thought in school. Gil is one of the few actors who possess such expressive eyes. Splendid I should say of his take on that role.

    4. It can still be a hit, but indies are not meant to be blockbuster movies. Know the difference first. It's not your typical story or romcom that dominates theaters nowadays. Usually they are produced by smaller production companies compared to bigger ones. That and they're usually on a smaller scale when it comes to budget. So not a lot of promo, but more word of mouth and things like social media. It doesn't mean that it's less quality though. If anything the acting is very inferior to typical movies out there. That's where you see an actor's talent shine.

    7. At anon 10:01 hindi naman kita ang pinaguusapan dito at hindi din para kumita ang purpose ng film. Hindi lahat ng bagay kelangan icompare. Heller kung thriller na ito vs romcom malamang mas madami dun sa romcom kasi yun for commercial consumption ang purpose nun kumita, hindi sa laki ng kinita namemeasure ang success.

    9. I stalked accounts about diyan sa deliver na yan. So binash ni irish si quen?

      Delete
    10. Quen delivered. That's her compliment. But for the fans, backhand compliment daw kasi yung reviews nya sa other actors ang bongga. Kay quen delivered lang. Ayun nagtampo. Bias daw, kung iba daw ang gumanap baka hindi lang delivered ang masasabi. Hahaha.

  37. Iyong I ang bashers dito, halata ang pagka-inggit Kay Quen dahil siya ang choice ni direk Paul. Imbes na nang bash, sabihan ninyo ang mga idols ninyo na mag workshop para next time, sila rin mapansin ang acting.

  38. I'm a certified Kapuso pero kung papipiliin ako ng love team from Kapamilya, I would choose Lizquen, not only because they are prettiest love team there, pero because they're acting (both guy and girl) are better than the other love teams. sa ibang lt kasi ng kapamilya, minsan umaangat yung girl, minsan yung guy, looks-wise naman lagging angat ang guys. pero sa lizquen match na match, acting and looks

  39. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT THE EARNINGS WOULD BE? IT'S AN INDIE MOVIE, NAGKATAON LNG NA MAINSTREAM ACTOR ANG BIDA. KYA NGA SABI NILA KYA DAW INDIE KASI "INDIE KUMIKITA" ANG MGA INDEPENDENT FILMS E. IT'S A GREAT MOVIE, GOOD QUALITY PATI STORY MAGANDA, GREAT ACTING, PERO GANUN TLG ANG NANGYAYARI SA MGA INDIE FILMS. MISKI NAAMN SA HOLLYWOOD. MILYONES KITA NG MGA AVENGERS, TWILIGHT SERIES, PERO BIBIHRA NAKAPNOOD NG THE ROOM OR DANISH GIRL NA PARA SAKEN HAVE WAY BETTER STORYLINES.

  41. Indie films nga pero may 100 theaters. Sila lang yung Indie film na ganyan. Mukhang maganda yung movie. I don't get it bat isinabay to sa movies ng kabila kung gusto ng SC na tangkilikin to ng manunuod. Kawawa si Paul and all the artist. Pinaghirapan nila tapos walang movie goers.

  48. I watched the movie and left disappointed. It's full of movie cliches and the acting of the lead actor, Enrique Gil, left so much to be desired. The pacing was forced and overall it felt very predictable. I really had high hopes for the movie but I was really let down after watching it. It's not even as good as foreign suspense B movies. Just my honest opinion.

    1. Movie cliches like what? Coz wala akong napanood na force conflict, cheesy toilet humors pakilig at kung ano ano pang cliches na meron sa isang typical pinoy movie in fact unang scene pa lang dark na! Your honest opinion or this is you trying to bring down this movie just to feel better about yourself?

  49. buti pa tong FP justifiable ang review sa acting niya. merong isang na naturingang 'writer' pa man din ng isang matinong newspaper, di makapagpost ng maayus ayos na criticism. pano kasi tard ng ibang loveteam. takot matabunan ang peborits. hahahaha. gawa na lang siya ng part two ng binibentang book nila bes tutal mukhang dun mo naman nalalabas ang pagiging professional writer mo. hahaha

  51. Anon 4:14 opinion mo nga Na may mas deserving Sa role But YOUR OPINION IS NOT THE ONE THAT MATTERED ... Swerte NG fans Ni Enrique kase Sa opinion Ni Direk Paul Si Enrique Ang deserving Sa role Kaya nag wait pa Sya NG 2 years para ma SWAK Sa schedule Ni Enrique Ang shooting NG movie Na to.
