This would be my first post about a Filipino film. Frankly, I don’t get attracted to the numerous Filipino films because of the acting. The actors actually portray their roles but maybe because of the director’s urging, their acting gets out of hand. In Filipino terms, OA: overacting.

Only thing is, I’ve already read the plot synopsis of Hellboy II on Wikipedia. Talk about spoilers.
