Finally, the movie that I’ve been waiting for is just 2 nights of sleep away from it’s showing. This years entry for Metro Manila Film Festival has a very promising one and I’ve been waiting for Tagalog action movies since action films had been absent in the Philippine

Movies for some time and now it is coming back for good, I just do hope so.


This coming Christmas day, movie houses will be jump packed, there would be long lines and expect that Enteng Kabisote Movie will top the chart because of movie Collaboration with Ai Ai’s Ina Mo Movie titled “Enteng ng Ina Mo”, together with other trilogy movies like Panday, Shake, Rattle and Roll, etc.


There is only one movie that I wanted to see  in movies houses this year and that is George Estregan Jr.’s Manila Kingpin “The Asiong Salonga Story” a newer approach on the true to life story of a known gangster of Tondo. Tondo is known for being one of the poorest and most underdeveloped districts of the country.


Many of the city’s slums are found in this area. Where all types of crooks, gangsters are found and still true today but unlike before where guns and ammunition are all over the place. Going back, see the poster below for casts and characters:


Full Theatrical Trailer



Setting: Tondo.


Day: The Ancient Gangland. Year 1950.


Gangwars were in. Violence was the name of the game. Gangsters carried Thompson’s and grease guns in a Bayong. Police Characters were just too tough resulting in bloody encounters. All notorious hoodlums dreamt to be the King.

But one smart and slippery hoodlum rose to power and reigned as King. He was the youngest and toughest Public Enemy No. 1 (Criminal) the Tondo Underworld ever bred. He was feared, respected and loved. A legendary Robin Hood in his time Tondo will never forget.
His gang called him Hitler.


Tondo remembers him by another name….


He robbed the rich to give to the poor. He lived and died by the gun. He lived fast and died young. This is his bloody career and salvage true-to-life story.


Jeorge Estregan and Carla Abellana
