    I'm happy that this movie was shoot here in the philippines, this is a great chance for other countries to notice what our country can offer. Definitely a good exposure for tourism.

    Having hollywood big movie is great but i was traumatized last feb. 4, 2012 when i went to manila from quezon city. it took me 3 hours to reach my destination which is usually a 30 min ride. the traffic enforcers have indeed not prepared. they said they made preparations? i doubt, they just watched the shooting...

    anonymous, it is actually good and bad. in times like this you need to be at least updated on news and events then react accordingly. i guess you dont know the shooting is there so you were not able to make adjust :(
