PEP REVIEW: Ang Panday marks visual effects breakthrough


As Flavio and Lizardo, Bong Revilla Jr. (left) and Phillip Salvador (right) are mortal enemies of each other in the Metro Manila Fest entry Ang Panday.




This action-fantasy film is one of the seven entries competing in the 35th Metro Manila Film Festival. The new version of Ang Panday is co-produced by GMA Films and Imus Productions and is directed by Mac Alejandre.

Ang Panday will be screened in cinemas starting Christmas Day, December 25, 2009.



The story of Panday has been retold for many times since the fictional comics character was created in 1979 by Carlo J. Caparas.


From print, the character debuted on the big screen via a string of "Panday" movies, the most popular of which featured late Fernando Poe Jr., who starred in four Panday films.


In 1993, Bong Revilla Jr. starred as a descendant of Flavio in Ang Dugo ng Panday. In the 2009 version, he now takes the role of Flavio himself.
