The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Honestly, we enjoyed the first film Praybeyt Benjamin in 2011. It earned a lot and once became the highest grossing Filipino movie of all time. Now at the start of the MMFF season this year, we are not surprised to see this unnecessary sequel back for another round. Unfortunately, the film looks drastically annoying, and we simply wished that this film just never existed. 

After saving the country in the first film, Benjamin Santos VIII (Vice Ganda) continues to be a great soldier which made him change his attitude and arrogant. With another terrorist group threatening the country, Benjie needs to earn the trust of his Commanding General's son (Bimby Aquino-Yap) to know where are the exact locations of the bombs planted by the terrorists.
We are not really sure why on the earth, we did see this film first. The trailer isn't funny and yet; a lot of people line-up to see it. The jokes are just simply corny, especially the "Plant VS Zombies" part and the very stupid way on how to detonate a bomb. There are also tons of other unfunny comedic ideas throughout the film that is cliched. But still there are some good jokes that made us laugh especially when Alex Gonzaga is on the screen but that is all for us to enjoy.

Overall, The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin is just a waste of time and money. We still find Vice funny at times, but we rather watch "Petrang Kabayo" again or watch "GGV" instead.
