“Si Agimat, Si Enteng at Si Ako”
Directed by Tony Y. Reyes; stars Vic Sotto, Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., Judy Ann Santos, Gwen Zamora, Sam Pinto, John Lapus, Ryzza Mae Dizon, Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola
FROM the initial installment (“Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote”), the friendship of Enteng Kabisote (Sotto) and Agimat (Revilla) continues. Agimat starts his own family with Samara who, like him, is a warrior from the kingdom Amuleto. He tries to learn from the relationship of the human Enteng and his fairy wife Faye (Zamora). The action begins when they meet Princess Angelina Kalinisan Orteza (Santos) or AKO, an active environment protector from the kingdom of Diwatara. With the two heroes, she battles aliens out to destroy the world. The film, a sequel to the Sotto-Revilla tandem in 2010 that broke all MMFF box-office records, is also expected to top ticket sales this festival year.
