WARNING: Contains spoilers on the movie's main story. Read at your own risk.
Leo Martinez, Enchong Dee, and Eugene Domingo, along with Empress and Jake Cuenca make up the Star-Cinema film with the hint of indie movie: TUHOG. The local term for “impalement,” Tuhog primarily revolves around the lives of three individuals who have been impaled by a tube after being involved in a bus accident. The story takes on the concept of death and having to face it without fear.
The three victims can be interpreted as the three stages of life of an individual: the survival as an elderly person is depicted by Leo Martinez in his role as Tonio, who, at the later stages of his life, has decided to follow his dreams, despite the repeated warnings of his fanily. The struggle as an adult as seen in the life of Fiesta Dacanay, played by Eugene Domingo, a bus conductor who later gets involved with Renato Timbangkaya, a bus driver played by Jake Cuenca. Finally, we have the crazy days as a youth, with Caloy played by Enchong Dee and his girlfriend Angel who is brought to life by Empress Schuck. Each individual character comes into a web of chance meetings and circumstances and have met in one way or another and eventually meeting up at the bus that led to the accident. With a peek at each of these lives, we can see the problems these individuals have to face everyday. Some of these obstacles in life may be seen by others as simple, but for some it is a big deal.
With a dash of laughter surrounded by drama, Tuhog delivers a great storytelling about life, its hardships, and accepting what's beyond our short life here on Earth.
The feel of being an indie film is there, which is a plus factor in the decision of the rating of this movie. One of the downside is the lack of additional explanation at the end of the movie, especially as to what happened to the characters in Fiesta Dacanay's story after the events at the hospital. Overall, it's a good watch, an inspiring movie, makes us laugh but at the same time leaves a mark about how we should live our lives.

"Nasa YouTube na me," yan ang sabi ni ate na nasa video. Ang mga video na ito, kung saan bida si ateng Elevator Girl na may kakaibang "twist" na ginagawa upang hindi naman mainip ang mga taong sumasakay sa elevator, ay kumakalat ngayon sa mga social media sites tulad ng Facebook. Superb customer service with a hint of fun, yun. Mukhang maaasahan din si ate para pagtanungan kung ano ang mga shop na makikita sa bawat floor, at syempre hindi nawawala ang kanyang ngiti. Dedicated naman talaga si ate sa kanyang trabaho, kaya saludo kami sa 'yo, ate!
