Prior to being this year’s Star Awards big winner, “In the Name of Love” has received good reviews from some renowned film critics.
“The Olivia Lamasan-helmed drama is quite heavy and tackles mature themes such as dirty politics and drug trafficking, but it’s well-crafted and I saw that there was an effort to go to a level most local releases do not tread,” goes Regnard Raquedan’s post in his movie blog.
