Before retiring for the day and going to work tomorrow, my family and I managed to watch RPG Metanoia finally. We did watch it after a long conversation and discussion on whether to choose Gulliver's Travel over it but in the end we walk out of the cinema fulfilled and convinced that RPG Metanoia should have received the Best Picture Award and the Best in Special Effects in the recently concluded Metro Manila Film Festival 2010.

Surely, someone will have second thoughts of watching this movie or a Pinoy animated film but I guarantee you 100% that after you watch this movie you will be very satisfied and a changed man.

Here are my ratings for RPG Metanoia:
  • STORY: 10
The story is very original.  It was not a remake and it was not even based on a foreign movie.  RPG Metanoia did not put online gaming and MMORPG in a bad light but instead placed its importance in parallel with being part of the society and not being addicted to games.  It also shows a "real" support system of a family that could prevent game addiction.  RPG Metanoia also brings us back to reconsider playing Filipino street games like Patintero, Piko, Taguan Base, Jolens and many more.  It is the only film among all the entries which is cultural sensitive.

  • CHARACTERS: 10
The characters are very distinct from each other.  They have their own emotions and capabilities.  You will see the reality in the mix of players in online games.
  • COHERENCE: 10
The story is very coherent and puts a strong semblance to what is really happening in online games nowadays.
  • DEPTH: 10
RPG Metanoia explores an animated story in a very different way.  It was way different than previous Filipino animations in the MMFF.  RPG Metanoia explores family bonding which remains together despite the distance of the father and his family.  It also explores the story of greed, selfishness, being a hero in our own way, friendship, forgiveness in more.  Among all the entries it is the only movie which is overflowing with positive messages and values.
  • MUSIC: 10
All the music emulates positive values on heroism, self worth and being of service to others.


  • VISUAL EFFECTS: 9
I was impressed with the visual effects as in super impressed.  I would not give it a 10 though at least not until I watched it in 3D.
  • POPULARITY: 7
The popularity of RPG Metanoia suffers from the fact that most people dismissed it as "for kids only" but the fact however is it is not only for kids.  The usual stereotyping that Pinoy animation is always inferior to Disney or foreign animation also contributed to RPG Metanoia's unpopular image.  If people however will have time to watch it am sure that they will not be disappointed.
  • RECOMMENDATION: 10
  • TOTAL RATING: 9.50
I will leave a challenge to all movie goers and those that have watched other entries in the 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival.  Watch RPG Metanoia and after the movie if there is one person who will say that this is not a good movie and state their reason... and I find it with credence I will stop writing a movie review.

For me RPG Metanoia is the TRUE METRO MANILA FILM FESTIVAL 2010 BEST PICTURE.
