As promised I watched Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo which leads by one of my favorite actors Robin Padilla.
The movie is very informative and the students of the new generation are very lucky to understand the history this exciting way.
I was saddened by the fact that we know little about Andres Bonifacio who contributed a lot with the freedom we are enjoying today. He is one of the heroes who first stand and fight after 300 years of Spanish invasion. Without his courage, we might be still a prisoner in our own land.
The title of the movie is a little controversial because we all know that the first President is Emilio Aguinaldo so how come that this movie entitled as such?
I have a little hint why this is the title of the movie because Bonifacio is the founder of the KKK (Kataas-taasan, Kagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan) and therefore called Supremo.
It was said that the KKK is the first government established in the Philippines and since Bonifacio was known as the leader of the group, hence he should be acknowledged as the first President.
The movie also shows the sacrifices of the hero and the injustice made to him not only by the Spanish but through the hands of his fellow Filipino men.
The story line justifies the title, I only wish that they gave highlight to some fighting scenes because Andres Bonifacio is not only a leader but a fighter and a warrior. His bravery is where he was known.
The actors gave justice to the characters and they play their roles very well. It is a must watch for everyone.
My gratitude goes to Andres Bonifacio. It takes a lot of courage to make a stand even if you think you don’t have a chance to succeed.
Happy to watch 🙂
