Anino (The Shadow) is the hero of the poor sugar-cane workers who are abused by their evil boss Victor Valdez. But Anino's legendary reign comes to an end when Valdez kills his wife, steals his baby son and leaves Anino for dead. 18 years later, a young girl (Celina) returns to the mansion of Valdez seeking vengeance for the death of her Father. She bungles the murder of Valdez and instead runs into an old beggar, who turns out to be Anino. Anino offers to teach Celina everything he knows and the two of them team up to destroy Valdez and his evil empire.Written by
Long before the female action trend in Philippine cinema, there was a film called, Anino. It's a rated R superhero movie. An unofficial modern remake and riff off of The Mask of Zorror.
Anino is about Celine (previously credited as Sandra Gomez; known today as January Isaac Bodlovic) who wants to avenge the death of her parent in the hands of Victor Valdez (John Regala). Along the way he will meet a stranger (Roi Vinzon) from the past will help to full fill her revenge plan.
The film may have many problems like it's cinematography and direction but it will all be forgiven. After all this film is just silly the whole time. Some of the action scenes are surprisingly good. There are scenes that are unintentionally laughable but as a whole it's just ok. John Regala is brilliant as a villain. He save this film because whenever he's on screen, there's a lot of fun going on.
Overall, Anino may fall on a so-bad-its-good but it's the reason why I like this film. This is a film I want to recommend to my friends just for a good movie time with them.
