About the Movie
When a prominent drug dealer is murdered, Sergeant Acosta (Joey Marquez) and Federal agent Francis (Piolo Pascual) lead the investigation, but the trail goes immediately cold. What they discover is a conspiracy of massive scale: the killers (Joel Torre and Gerald Anderson) are inmates, temporarily released from jail as assassins before returning to incarceration.Prison. The last place a cop would look. A perfect cover-up. Caught in a web of deceit and corruption, Acosta and Francis are on a collision course with the government officials who will do anything to silence them – and no one is safe.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Even at its most incomprehensible, the propulsive thriller "On the Job" is never less than arresting.
Fresh: Despite the relative flatness of [the] characters - their relationships to one another are more archetypal than particular - the film is as heartbreaking as it is heart-stopping.
Fresh: Combining street-level crime with political corruption, On the Job owes as much to Scorsese as it does to Philippine current events.
Fresh: "On the Job" is a sturdy and sophisticated crime drama from the Philippines that takes a pretty gruesome situation and enriches its presentation with lots of human detail.
1st Pinoy movie I can actually seat watch and enjoy. Story is great. The cast well done. Need more pinoy movies like this.
