“The Platform” Movie Review – The Praying Lensman

Advertisements

The Platform or “El Hoyo” (meaning the hole) is a Spanish fiction thriller movie released on September 6, 2019. The cast includes Iván Massagué as Goreng, Zorion Eguileor as Trimagasi, Antonia San Juan as Imoguiri, Emilio Buale Coka as Baharat, and a Filipina (in blood) Alexandra Masangkay as Miharu. There is a lot of lessons to learn from this movie but please consider these markers below. I wont let my kids watch this movie until they reach the age of reason.

As a Christian father, I somehow feel obliged to share my own thoughts on some of the movies I watched. This is a review on a Christian perspective and not a review on its effects, plots, casts, etc. So here are some markers in areas I think are important and could be useful for those who are deciding to watch this movie.

My own review only
  • Cannibalism. Prisoners are forced to eat human flesh for survival
  • Violence. Prisoners take their own lives or kill other prisoners
  • Gluttony/Greed of food. Prisoners in the upper floors are not thinking of other prisoners in the lower floors who depends on the upper floors leftovers
  • Nudity/Sex. Masturbation, sex, naked people (about 2 mins)
  • Blasphemy. Addressing Goreng (the main character) as “Messiah”, using the passages in John 6 to convince him to embrace cannibalism.

Let us serve Christ and the Church in all circumstances!

Things to remind your kids:

Divination and Magic◼◼◼◼◼
Homosexuality◼◻◻◻◻
Co-habitation◼◻◻◻◻
My own review only
  • Divination and Magic. Contacting the dead and the use of magic in real life is an insult to God.
  • Homosexuality. A lady police officer mentions about a daughter of her girlfriend. In fact, Poland completely deleted her scene.
  • Co-habitation. The two brothers live with their mom and her boyfriend, their step dad.

Let us serve Christ and the Church in all circumstances!
