Trivia

The Philippine flag, which appears at the background in the scenes with Luna at his office, becomes more and more stained as the movie progresses. At the end of the movie, the dirty flag, gets burned (through CGI effects) See more »

Goofs

When General Luna and his men enter a church to pray briefly after hearing news of the American attack on Santa Mesa, several statues of the Virgin Mary can be seen near a window in the background. One of them is Our Lady of Fátima; the Fátima Apparitions occurred in 1917, almost two decades after the film's time period. See more »

Crazy Credits

In a post-credits sequence, General Gregorio del Pilar (Paulo Avelino) is told there are not enough men left. He tells his aide to choose 60--the number of men he had with him when he tried to defend Aguinaldo's retreat from American soldiers at the Battle of Tirad Pass. The scene hints that Del Pilar will be the focus of the next film in a rumoured historical film trilogy by director Jerrold Tarog. See more »

Watching this was worth every penny spent!!!
15 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

I don't usually patronize historical movies/dramas as they could be biased depending on how the directors/writers/producers would like to portray the "heroes" in it, but HENERAL LUNA is different!

Hen. Antonio Luna wasn't portrayed as a mere hero without imperfections, but instead a human being who wasn't afraid to gain naysayers for the sake of Inang Bayan's "real" independence. You will admire him, hate him, disagree with him, sympathize with him...surely, these emotions are not enough to describe I how felt while watching the movie. John Arcilla, without a doubt gave life to Hen. Luna's character (all actors/actresses in the movie, actually).

Kudos to the director, Mr. Jerrold Tarog and everyone who made this masterpiece possible.

Watching this was worth every penny spent!!!
