The Breakup Playlist: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Trixie (Sarah Geronimo) is a law student but her passion, and her heart knows that she wants to be a musician. During a music camp, she attended; she catches the attention of a popular rock star named Gino (Piolo Pascual) and invited her to join his band. Trixie was hesitant at first because of her parents but with Gino's pursuance and her love for music; she agreed. With the two, sharing the love for music makes their band into a success, but it wasn't easy to maintain as Gino's ego and insecurities rise up. Will the two find a way to keep their relationship together or will their hearts get tired and suffers the consequences?

The past two Star Cinema released films was quite a disappointment (Just The Way You Are and You're Still The One) but their latest offering brings much depth into their typical rom-com film. The story is quite believable, and the scenes were not forced. The music really helped a lot in maintaining the film's pace and strengthening its core. It is still pretty much the same formula but this time they manage to do it right.

The cast responded and came out strong, especially the two lead stars. Piolo Pascual provided a good performance and had a palpable chemistry with Sarah Geronimo mostly when they start to sing. However, their cheesiness is a bit tiring at times, but still they are a charming pair. Sarah Geronimo always has that magical energy that makes her enjoyable to watch. She is very charismatic and can totally adjust to every partner she worked with.  

Overall, The Breakup Playlist works because of it's simplicity, and it is beefed up with a nice set of music. It just feels a bit rushed at the end in settling their issues, but it avoided to come up with a ridiculous setup in the end.

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 8 out of 10 stars
