Trailer Reviews:

Heneral Luna is based on the life of one of the Philippine military commander spearheading the Philippine struggle for nationhood during the Philippine American War at the end of 19th Century, General Antonio Luna (John Arcilla), a educated scientist turned into a soldier who is started out advocating political reforms rather than outright revolution. The film begins in 1989, when the U.S.military have already defeated Spanish colonialists and the debates the issue about the American presence  in the Philippines of President Emilio Aguinaldo (Mon Confiado) together with his Prime Minister Apolinario Mabini (Epi Quizon) and his cabinet members. While Luna is shown living and working alongside  his soldiers and talks his talk  of the need to put  country before  family and everything else, Aguinaldo operates behind a neat desk , an indecisive man  under the  sway of his backers, his cronies and even his mother. As Luna tries to lead his countrymen against colonial masters new and old, he defies double-dealing detractors, rages against the dying light and lurches towards the grisly end to fulfil the promise of the Philippine Revolution.
