Echorsis was fun and hilarious movie which stressed the entertainment value and its message of love, forgiveness, and acceptance. Kudos to Alex and Kean! They really performed excellent on this movie. They confidently portrayed the role of a gay character. Their acting is smooth with the right moves and emotions. I really enjoyed the part where hunky shirtless men entered Kean’s room. His facial expression on this scene is superb. On the other hand, for sure lots of lesbian gays, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) will enjoy the scene where Alex became like a beauty queen and portrayed different character of local celebrities on their respective movies.
Like his other movies, Lapus always bring smile to all moviegoers. His acting is very natural. As one of the lead characters, Lapus showed every scene should be intense. Echorsis became more entertaining because of him.
I’m also impressed on the performance of Lapus’ best friends- Bekimon, Nico Antonio, Francine Garcia. Like Lapus, their acting is light and natural. Their characters showed the good behavioral of a true friend. You need to tell the truth to your friend even if it might hurt/harm him.
