‘On the Job’ action
thriller forum today
A forum on the action thriller movie “On The Job” will be held by ABS-CBN Bacolod today at the 2nd floor of Robinsons Place Bacolod and is open to the public, a press release from the station said.
It will feature the movie’s director, Erik Matti, and multi-awarded Negrense actor Joel Torre, who will discuss the film that has received high praises from international publications, like The Hollywood Reporter that called it a “caustically cynical action thriller that soars in action”, and Variety, that raved about its gritty and steadily engrossing pace, the press release also said.
The film also stars Piolo Pascual and Gerald Anderson, and tells of the intersecting lives of four men on opposites sides of the law – a pair of hit men out to do another job and a couple of policemen hell-bent on their trail.
The activity is in line with the 25th year anniversary of ABS-CBN Bacolod, and comes fresh from its success at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, the press release added.*
