She's Dating The Gangster Movie Review

Lifestyle Blogger and Tatt Awards Nominee Mj De Leon wrote a review of Star Cinema's #ShesDatingTheGangster which stars Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta. 

In his review, Mj said "the shots in "She's Dating The Gangster" should be Star Cinema's most delicious! Everything was pretty. The overexposed Mayon Volcano still stole gasps from me and that road trip from Manila to Legazpi City was so picturesque that you'd love to jump on the next ride to Bicol. I give you caution for what could be an overload of beautiful images but as if the first 90 minutes were not enough, the finale scene of Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta is nothing short of jaw-dropping. "

He also mentioned the exhibited growth shown by Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla as actors. The undeniable chemistry radiated further, this time without the need for pick up and other cheesy lines. It was just them being faithful to their characters.  

I have to agree with Mj when he said that Daniel Padilla wasn't monotone. When we are used to hearing him speak and sing with a barely opened mouth (remember "Ne-se-ye Ne Eng Le-het"?), it's refreshing to see him here pouring unrestrained emotions. I know his bad boy charms are swooning young girls over but I think they would agree that he is more adorable when he opens up, filling the big screen with his already expressive gaze and more sincere uttering of dialogues. The swag that we don't see on anyone among the young actors today is still there, but Daniel used these fascinating gestures on where they matter in the movie. Let's just not talk about the wig. For the purpose of story adherence, that's forgiven.

Kathryn Bernardo was bubbly and colorful with every screen appearance endearing according to Mj's review. "Well, it would be too much if we expect from her in such a light, teeny-bopper material. Big props to her styling team for giving her those several costume changes (more than 30, but I lost count) which traversed through fun and hip, retro and contemporary and of course, story relevance. She was perfectly dressed throughout. "
