Khalil, Jason + more are present at the special screening of 'Riding in Tandem'

Practically newbies in action films, Khalil Ramos and Jason Abalos accepted the challenge of creating one, headstrong. 

What they did to the movie "Riding in Tandem" is something worthy of an applause, and so yesterday, October 15, the special screening of "Riding in Tandem" was held. And it was a moment that truly showcased what these two actors can offer now, and in the future. 

Direk Toto Natividad is a big part of why Jason said yes to the movie. 

"Si Direk Toto, legend na 'yan sa action. Oo [ito ang first full-length action film ko]. Ang character ko dito, nabubuhay siya para sa pamilya, so ginagawa niya lahat at naging 'riding in tandem' siya para sa pamilya niya," Jason said in a press interview at the special screening. 

As for Khalil, he mentioned in a separate interview last Saturday, October 14, that he enjoys doing action scenes. He has already experienced action in a few scenes in the hit Primetime Bida serye "La Luna Sangre". But with "Riding in Tandem," he got to do a full-on, full-length action masterpiece.

"When it was first offered sa akin, siyempre ang first impression [ko], 'uy action, exciting agad.' Exciting kasi mga eksena niyo, bakbakan, and I enjoy doing that, I enjoy doing action. So, I was really excited, hindi naman ako nag-dalawang-isip, I said yes," he related. 

The night of the screening was also graced by other cast members, supporters, and moviegoers.

Also with Khalil and Jason in the film are Mara Lopez, Sue Prado, Nina Dolino, Joem Bascon, and Victor Neri, among others.

"Riding in Tandem" is a film that deals with a current societal issue of the country. It goes deep into the minds of criminals, and the factors that drive them to either take revenge or forgive. 

"Riding in Tandem" is showing in select SM cinemas until October 19. This action film is part of Cine Lokal's selections for October.
