The Reviews for Goyo: The Boy General (2018) 720p

We all remember that he was a general, but we forgot how he was also just a boy.Reviewed byThingamagingyyVote: 10/10

We all know about the repeats of the themes of how we have too much faith in our heroes - that they're imperfect, and how it questions Filipinos habit of just following orders, but to me, there is more to the story about that.

It's also about youth, and how it was taken away with the war.

Imagine an average man at the age of 23 today, maybe this would even be you or someone you know, and the last thing you can imagine for someone like that is to be a major war hero, but this is what he was like. People grew up too fast, and while people may say - history is repeating itself - it is, but not as much as people say. Most of us are living in peace, not always in happiness or in adequate wealth for basic needs, but yes in peace. And we take that for granted today - not just in the Philippines but around the world.

The Philippine-American war was rough, and that's the least I could put it. It's not just asking whether to question authority - many people by now know how to - but it's more in the lines of - even if we do question authority, what could we possibly do to it? I won't spoil the rest of the movie, but in the beggining - in a scene torturing a traitor for information, the traitor screamed at him. "You're not a soldier, haha. You're a dog!" he says. He leaves the scene emotionless, hiding any emotions he might have beneath the surface.

But really, it seemed to repeat how a lot of people around the world acts like. Maybe the boy general was a dog, but so was the traitor. I'm not saying there was some higher up he was being obedient to too, but it's his faith to believe in his own hatred and anger. The truth is there was no one who is obedient only to himself. We have to have faith in something - at least the faith that the whole world is real and we're not just brains in a reality simulator machine as modern proponents of Descartes might put it, but faith in what we really value. Whether that is religion, science, romance, money, family, country or more, we all dedicate ourselves to some kind of image.

The Philippines is not the only country in the world with infighting among them. We have the differences between Liberal and Republican Americans. The difference between the more famous northern Italy of the Renaissance and the less famous southern Italy wanting to catch up. The difference between the yellow shirts of Thailand who want to stay loyal to the conservative values of the king or the red shirts who are asking for democracy. We see how the Protestant and Catholic Irish have once fought, and so on and so on. But somehow history repeats itself.

In the end, this movie for me asks this question the most. "What is faith?" What is the nature of faith? Should we have faith? Does faith come from believing in something or letting go of the need to believe in something for sure? What's the difference between reasonable faith and blind faith? Are all types of having faith in something equal, and if not, what is worth believing in the most?

In the context of fighting for a country after all, we cannot fight together without our own cultural imagination. We don't know most people in our country and yet we we believe in them. We don't know whether what we're doing will actually work for sure in the world, and yet we believe in them. We don't know whether our values, whether with other values or alone, will bring us lasting happiness but yet we believe in them.

But somehow it is reasonable to have this faith, because even if we don't know this, we know for sure what will happen if we don't believe in them.

We can only have true faith in others if we have faith in ourselves. To not believe in anyone else's ability to change, means that you believe the same in yourself.

So can I ask again. Does history really repeat itself? Even if it does, just how much? What has changed in the Philippines and the world since then? The answer to progress might lie in adapting to that.

Goyo is one of the few films that make me proud to be Filipino-which is ironic as it's a film that reveals our country and our people's imperfect realities.

Filled with lines that hit really hard, it makes us think hard about what we, as Filipino people, are really fighting for. We oftentimes put our "heroes" in such high pedestals-at times to a point where we allow them to dictate our own ideals and we're blinded to what's actually happening around us. Goyo, the film, attempts to save us from this blindnesss. It opens the reality that we cannot solely rely on other people to save us, nor believe that only "heroes" are capable of heroism. It inspires the Filipino to support its leaders, but also to keep in mind that at the end of the day, he exists not to support these leaders alone, but ultimately to support principles and uphold dignity of the country and the Filipinos as a whole.

Compared to its prequel Heneral Luna, Goyo puts more focus on the battle of beliefs and ideals which are, in a deeper sense, have been the root cause of wars of humanity since the beginning and unfortunately until now. The realities that the film has so artfully stripped naked are realities that remain and are still very reflective of the Filipinos' situation today-difference in ideals pitting Filipinos against each other, conflicts of interest and self-serving motivations of the men who shape this nation, and supporters that follow with a blind eye to reality.

The film provokes us to challenge our realities, to ask questions, and to find answers. Like Goyo, we as a country need to be reminded every now and then to look back to who we are, to constantly reevaluate our principles and, to fight for them with sweat and blood.

Shows the other side of "heroism"Reviewed byhfahernandoVote: 8/10

Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral was not a conventional historical movie. More often than not, movies of this kind show "heroes" as exactly that-- fearless, determined, and ready to sacrifice for the greater good. What I liked most about this movie, then, is that it strays from this way of storytelling and tells us that our heroes are still painfully human.

Gregorio del Pilar was heralded as one of the bravest men in Philippine history, but this film makes the statement that, behind all the glory and revere, Goyo is still what the title suggests: isa syang bata. I appreciated how the film highlighted the mischievous parts about him, his lack of foresight in battle, his obsession with love. All of this shows the audience that he was just 23, behind the grandeur of it all, and that maybe he was carrying a burden heavier than he pretended he could handle.
