THROWBACK: People are talking about ‘Abel Villarama: Armado’ again and here’s why

New things pop up every day, but we still go back to the classics. 

Thank God there’s the internet that never lets us forget the things we grew up loving. You know, things like the action film “Abel Villarama: Armado,” which continues to spark interest online.  

It was dubbed as “the biggest action event of the late 90s” and people remember it for the very reasons that made it a classic: its timeless plot and ensemble cast. 

This Val Iglesias-directed masterpiece follows the story of a bodyguard, whose life changed when he got into an illicit affair with his boss’ daughter then framed up by her jealous suitor. 

It stars one of the hottest leading lady of the 90s Ina Raymundo, veteran actor Tirso Cruz III, comedian Bayani Agbayani, Emilio Garcia, Lito Legaspi, Angela Velez, Jorge Estregan, Brando Legaspi, and of course, action icon Ace Vergel with the titular role. 

The buzz about it goes on and has even stolen fourth spot on Star Cinema’s YouTube channel for the first two weeks of April, with netizens recognizing the late actor still as “the original bad boy of Philippine cinema”, while praising the film for featuring some of his best silver screen moments. 

“’Yan ang tunay na bad boy,” said one YouTube subscriber. While another shared, “Malungkot dto sa abroad. Need ko manood ng mga movies ni idol kahit wala siya. I miss you, idol.” 

"Sana lahat ng babae katulad ni Christina (Ina’s character),” confessed one hopeless romantic from Twitter.
