Enteng Kabisote 10 and the Abangers

November 30, 2016 is now officially Christmas Day! Yeah, I know today is Bonifacio Day according to our Filipino calendars but Christmas Day has come officially early because...ahem...our favorite wisecracking warrior is back as Enteng Kabisote is about to make history while delivering some holiday cheers for the whole family with his blend of humor, drama, action, and everything else. What can I say?

Enteng Kabisote 10 and the Abangers

The tenth film based on the Okay Ka Fairy Ko TV sitcom is historical to Filipinos elsewhere because while the previous installments (not to mention crossovers) became a film festival staple, this new film is, what can I say this nicely, fairly a treason to its heritage because this is the first time this installment never made it to next month's film festival, especially films like Mano Po and others who never made it to the list, but despite its treason to the installment's heritage, this new movie still delivers some jokes, thrills, tears, and family values as before.

Joining comedian and TV presenter Vic Sotto, who reprises his Enteng role, are Oyo Boy Sotto, Aiza Seguerra, Bayani Casimiro Jr., Epi Quizon, Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, Paolo Ballesteros and Ryzza Mae Dizon among others.  Those new and returning cast really delivers a new kind of comedy gold for this new movie. In this movie, Enteng sets down his heroic status to become a family man and a businessman until one day, when the forces of evil strikes, Enteng is ready to come out from his retirement and save the day once again, this time with a little help from a band of...well, you get the idea.

Although being a fantasy movie, this movie has some references to other movies, meaning that the action sequences feels like it copied from somewhere else, even superhero movies from the West. Despite the action being came from somewhere over the border, the humor still packs a lot of tickle to the viewers and thanks to JoWaPao, upon learning from their Kalyeserye antics on TV, their appearances felt like if the Lolas of Kalyeserye are invading the whole movie from start to finish. Still, no one's safe from the corny jokes this movie offered.

Despite having full of references in terms of fight scenes as well as the corny jokes people who don't have a sense of humor wouldn't mind, its still a fun film for the whole family and thanks to its General Patronage rating, even the little kids can get into the Enteng Kabisote action because even with some mediocre action and jokes, there are some life lessons we can all learn in this film, especially family values, which is the core basis of this film every Filipino should know about.

My rating: 3.4 out of 5.
