Well, how do you like that? America hates The Great Raid, but there are some good comments about Filipino actor Cesar Montano! He played Jose Rizal decently, and this is his first shot at a Hollywood career.
"About the only actor who leaves an impression here is Cesar Montano, playing the head of a band of Filipino guerrillas. With his slouch hat and swagger, he displays a cocksure, easy arrogance that gives the film some sorely needed star power."
- Chris Barsanti, FilmCritic.com
"The Filipinos are led by Capt. Juan Pajota (Cesar Montano), a forcible local actor who steps into the Hollywood cast and adds to its authenticity and sense of mission."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Congrats, Mr Sunshine Cruz!
