Movie Review by Atty. Ferdinand S. Topacio

BLOCK Z (2020, ABS-CBN Films)

Starring: Julia Barretto, Joshua Garcia, Maris Racal, McCoy De Leon, Ian Veneracion, Myrtle Sarrosa, Yves Flores

Written by: Mixkaela Villalon

Directed by: Mikhail Red

BLOCK ZZZZZ…

Everything with Block Z was mostly done right: gorgeous cast, excellent acting, engaging cinematography, snappy editing, tight pacing, competent direction. To be sure, the writing was spotty, but not that much. So why did all these ingredients result in a sum much lesser than its parts?

This movie’s misfortune is that it dwells on a subject that has been worked to death in cinema: zombies. Just recently, the South Korean made Train To Busan (2016) made waves both here and abroad, and quickly became the gold standard for Asian zombie movie. Then there were several seasons of the acclaimed HBO series The Walking Dead. Not to be forgotten is Brad Pitt’s 2013 World War Z, the title of which Block Z is an unabashed rip-off. In the face of all those, plus dozens of others during the last decade, what novelty could Block Z provide?

The plot is easy to follow. Julia Barretto plays Princess Joy, or PJ, a senior medical student emotionally estranged from her father Mario (Ian Veneracion), a band member, whom she blames for not being present when her mother suffers a fatal stroke. The movie begins with PJ being brought by Mario to medical school. There, we are introduced to the rest of the main cast: Erika (Maris Racal), her best friend; Lucas (Joshua Garcia), a school jock and PJ’s persistent suitor; Myles (McCoy de Leon) who has a secret love for Erika; Gelo (Yves Flores), the well-to-do school council president; Vanessa (Myrtle Sarrosa), Gelo’s socmed-savvy vice-president; and Bebeth (Dimples Romana), the university’s conscientious security guard.

The action then shifts to the university hospital, where the PJ, Lucas, Erika and Myles are residents. An unknown woman (Ina Raymundo) is rushed in with an animal bite, while her small child pleads for help. The four try to stabilize her condition, but she flatlines nonetheless. Brought to the morgue, the corpse springs back to life, biting a male nurse. From then on, the contagion spreads throughout the campus. Locked in by a military-enforced quarantine, the friends – with the help of the feisty Bebeth and Mario (who coincidentally brings a victim he had bumped with his car to the same hospital) – use all their skills to try to survive the night and  make it in time to a rescue set for five o’clock the next morning.

As I have said, the young cast acquit themselves very well. Julia Barretto delivers as usual, and looks achingly pretty when she, later in the film, transforms into a Lara Croft-type zombie exterminator. Maris is a delight to watch, extremely photogenic and with acting abilities beyond her age. Joshua and McCoy are charming as the besotted young men going to great lengths to protect the objects of their affection. Special mention must be made of Myrtle Sarrosa, who made the most of a supporting role playing a student leader who disregards her own safety to help the many. Only Yves, as Gelo, a self-absorbed elitist concerned only with saving his own skin in the face of the impending annihilation of thousands, failed to make a mark in the acting department. 

Unfortunately, the movie had nothing new to offer as far as the zombie genre is concerned. All it could do for the audience was to take every trope and attempt to combine them in a new way. The attempt, however, fails in the main, due to the highly predictable script. Plot twists could be seen coming two or three scenes away. Even the placement of the jump scares could be foreseen a few seconds before they finally appear, thus robbing them of their power to scare. The social commentaries that the director shoehorned into the plot line also didn’t help the plot development, succeeding only in muddling what was supposed to be a lean and simple story arc. 

There were also noticeable plot holes. For instance, the movie finished without the origin of the viral epidemic having been sufficiently explained. Neither was the sudden disappearance of the military, who had done a horrifically efficient job earlier in the movie of mowing down every person that moved, zombie or not. And the viewer was largely kept wondering by what reason some were immune to the (for lack of a better term) zombie virus. But on the whole, had the screenwriting been imbued with more zing and freshness, these flaws could have been overlooked.

The result is a movie that suffered in comparison to the others in its class: it was not new enough, or suspenseful enough, or gory enough, to distinguish itself, so much so that halfway through, most of those in the audience were turned into zombies: catatonic, bleary-eyed and sleepy. A bad case of Block Zzzzzz….

    5. @9:38 Yes Train to Busan is overrated but not Parasite. A simple minded person would just watch what they see and won't delve with its layers of complexity.

      Delete
    6. 1:31 ang ganda nga ng train to busan. Hindi dahil korean siya pero kakaibang perspective at nasa train na may chance makapunta sa safety gamit ang train. Ang problema sa ibang zombie shows/ movies is na explore na ng the walking dead yan. Na bore na tayo sa concept. Yun ang kakaiba sa train to busan. Romcom will never die kasi its love lahat nakakrelate. Ang zombies ay trend lang parang yung vampire naumay din tayo.

    8. Entertaining lang ang train to busan pero ang dami din flaws sa takbo ng story. Alam mo na kung sino yon mamatay-mga character na tanga,hindi marunong magsarado ng pinto, yon matitigas ulo at mga napapahiwalay sa groupo."I am a hero",slow-paced sa una pero nandoon pa din yon element of creativity na kahit weird.

    7. 3:57, sa pagkakaalam ko,pareho lang ang presyo ng ticket ng pinoy movies at hollywood movies eh. So may karapatang magdemand ang mga moviegoers ng maayos at kalidad na palabas. Kung hindi pala nila kaya na gumawa ng high quality movies,eh hindi sana hindi nalang nila pinilit diba..

  9. fan ako ng most of the cast but ill be honest sa story department medyo fail ang movie... that is something that can be improved without adding $$$ to the budget kaya hindi sha excuse... naintindihan ko na sinulat ang movie as a trilogy kaso parang mashadong tinipid ang information eh. hindi naman kasi tayo sanay sa pinoy movies na may sequel.

    pero maganda naman ung movie. for its budget at gawang pinoy maganda talaga sha. hindi perpekto pero sana mabigyan pa rin ng chance magkaron ng part 2. kasi mas malaking scale na kung matutuloy at may mga ipapasok na bagong characters... masarap rin manood ng pinoy movie na hindi tungkol sa love hehe

    6. 4:32 flop siya. Sa first week may report na 28 million ang kinita at hindi na yan masayadong tataas. Pang bato ng star cinema ito at grabe din ang promo umiikot pa sa mga school campus. Disappointing ang gross at direk mik pa naman. Sira talaga ang bida nito kaya hindi kumita. Kung considered flop nga sa atin yung hindi umaabot sa 100 million ito pa kaya na hindi pa sa kalahati noon ang kinita. Iba ang expectations kapag star cinema movie kasi marunong mag hype.
