The Trigonal, the movie is set in the picturesque landscapes of Negros Island, with its gritty, dystopian underground fighting arena and a drug lord’s exotic island fortress. Watching the movie will make you ask whether this is a real story of incidents.
The movie starts with a heartwarming romantic story that gets you teary-eyed, but then quickly moves to tragic, chilling act of violence that leaves you disturbed, and finally leads you to a path of vengeance and the fight for justice that will keep you chilling till the end.
The line up in this movie is no joke. It is truly without a doubt, badass. “being on the set of The Trigonal is like being at a martial convention,” Soberano recalls You’ve got guys practicing arnis on one side, another working on JuJitsu, choke holds at another side, and the few full contact sparring matches in the ring.”
