Just like the mega bouts of its subject, the latest bio-pic of Pambansang Kamao Manny Pacquiao, Kid Kulafu, is now available on pay-per-view.
Lauded by critics for outstanding performances by Alessandra De Rossi, Cesar Montano, and young breakthrough star Buboy Villar, Kid Kulafu definitely stands at the top of the films about the fighting pride of the Philippines.
Having graced theaters around the world just before Pacquiao’s match with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May, the movie astounded viewers with compelling portrayals by its stars, superb cinematography, and gut-wrenching screenplay.
Set in Pacquiao’s youth, the Paul Soriano masterpiece shows the very early days of the world famous athlete’s journey to boxing fame and glory. The film is unique among existing bio-pics due because of its focus on Pacquiao’s first boxing persona “Kid Kulafu.” Named after the bottles of wine he used to collect for his uncle Sardo, it served as his moniker for the fights before he rose to stardom. In this film, long-time fans will learn of Pacquiao’s harsh past, and how his relationship with his mother, family, and friends molded the champion we know and love today.
The movie is now available on Sky Pay-Per-View through July 14.
