Stellar First Trailer For Erik Matti's Hitman Thriller ON THE JOB
That early reel was - and still is, you can see it here - an absolutely phenomenal piece of work, one that promised to launch Matti to a degree of interntional recognition that he had never had until that point. We compared it to the work of Johnnie To, ourselves, and I still think that comparison stands.
But promising or not, this is simply not the sort of film that gets made in the Philippines and it has been a long road from conception to execution, if you'll pardon the pun. But the picture is in the can now and making its way through post production and the first trailer has just arrived. And, hot damn, that early promise has been fully realized. Check it out below.
