Critique Paper on
Heneral Luna Movie
Introduction
Heneral Luna is one of the Philippines' finest historical films. Everything Heneral Luna and
his crew had previously obtained is contained in this document. Since the film is based on our own
history, I found it tremendously compelling and eye-opening. As a millennial, I had no idea how
hard our Filipino heroes struggled to save our country. Heneral Luna fought until the end, despite
the lack of support from other Commanding officers and high-ranking government officials. The
Filipinos can defeat the Americans even in the absence of supplies, equipment, cooperation, or
leadership. This is only one illustration of the film's other themes: courage. Additionally, Heneral
Luna demonstrates his rage towards cowards and traitors on his side and his love for the land he
cherishes. Because of the film's visuals and emotions, it is clear that it is worth viewing. An action-
packed narrative with exciting sequences brings us back to the Philippines-American War.
Thesis Statement
The producer was able to describe not just the life of General Antonio Luna but also that of
Filipinos as a whole. While leading his rebels against the Americans, General Luna was hailed for
his clever but insightful ideas. As a result of his military prowess, many of the businesspeople that
supported the Philippines in procuring the required materials for the war were skeptical of his
abilities. They loathed him for treating them as traitors because they prioritized their companies
and families over the revolution, and they started negotiating with the American so that they'd not
be involved in the revolution. He considers it as a betrayal over their own country since they
intended to be ruled by foreigners and looked to be betraying their own country. Since it gives us
the ability to be fearless and work together, many Filipinos, especially the younger generation, are
attracted to it.
Brief Summary
For the youth, it has an educational value since it informs us about History of the Philippines and
heroics in the past. The battle between Luna and his troops and the Americans is, in my opinion, a
function of artistic expression. Similar to a trench fight, in which two enemies wait in their

enclosures before coming out to attack one another and, so is this situation. Because the setting
and the picture are so similar, I refer to the sight as the "Battle of Philippines" portrait or work of
art from that period. In addition, the final scene serves an artistic function because it retells the
"Spolarium," in which the traitors who murdered Luna and his companion are seen bragging to the
wall, and at that exact moment, it truly brings back the appearance of Alter - ego in the movie, as
well as a historical purpose because the percentage of The respondents are familiar with the
"Spolarium," and it provides them with information about it. In addition to the content, the film's
style appealed to me because the majority of the scenes feature various types of art. There are
many different ways to characterize arts that convey something within them. A fighting scene is
depicted, and the passion is conveyed by the actions of the performers. The video displays various
historical things, such as antiques, that serve as symbols of the arts. Throughout the film, there are
occasions where something is incomprehensible or impossible to explain. An individual who
actually likes everything that incorporates actions and feelings makes the decision about art in the
film.

A beautiful video because it depicts how tough it is to fight for the freedom that we want for
our nation and fellow people. In addition to demonstrating that we fight for our other aims (money,
independence, and power), it also indicates that waging a legitimate war against our fellow
Filipinos is possible and justified. This movie reveals that there are a number of holes in our
collective memory. It makes me question why the assassinations of General Luna and Andres
Bonifacio were depicted in the film, and who was responsible for the murders in the first place.
Before the film's conclusion, Joven, Felipe Buencamino, and President Emilio Aguinaldo all
testified to Gen. Luna's death, which was shown in the film. When deciding how to seize control
of the Republic of the Philippines, President Emilio Aguinaldo perceives authority in a variety of
ways, both positively and negatively. The locations in the film are eerily similar to those of our
beautiful home country, the Philippines. Philippines used to live differently back when people had
to grow their own food, and we work differently now since there are no large buildings, pollution,
or traffic problems to contend with. Additionally, Joven Hernandez represents the people who
stood by and witnessed the fight between Filipinos and Americans, General Luna's passion to see
us free, as well as how the Philippines ended up in the possession of the United States of America.

The longing for freedom in our country was shared by him as well, and he sought to combat for it
by expressing the truth and using his pen like a weapon.
Summary of the key points of movie and analysis
We began to wonder how and why our governance and society were corrupted into our own
hands when we were first born in this modern age, and he represents us because of our intrinsic
curiosity. In his generation, people are always willing to protect and support the country they grew
up in. A new generation of political savvy. The dawn of a new era will be heralded by the
emergence of a new generation. In the beginning of a new age in which the corruption of our
administration may finally be confronted. Joven Hernando is the only character in the "Heneral
Luna" film that I am able to get connected and curious about. Every word Luna says to him may
help the future generation push themselves to their boundaries and illustrate that every era has a
new president who can rise up and display their leadership, thus I feel Joven Hernando symbolizes
the next generation. Just like in the film "Heneral Luna," Joven Hernando may persuade Filipino
audiences that the bravery of Luna is real and deserving of preserving due to various his part as
Hernando. Since Joven Hernando is a future Filipino, Heneral Luna is always concerned about his
safety and wants to make sure that his words and combat determination will inspire the next
generation of Filipinos to follow in his footsteps. Add a lot to that.
Closing Sentences
My favorite line from the movie "Heneral Luna" was "Our adversary is ourselves." Fearing
and unclear what to do in the face of Luna's brutality, the Filipinos came up with a plan to fight
the same race, or "lahi," which is Filipino. Unless we can overcome our fear and traitorousness,
we will be unable to defend ourselves or win the battle. Because of our hostility and want to protect
our nation, the Philippines, we must display these qualities if we are to win war. In the end, it's a
great movie for everyone who loves the Philippines and is open-minded about it. Rewatching this
famous historical film would be a great way for me to understand more about it.
