I won’t deny it. I am a Kapuso. Therefore given this question I should be bias to Zaido. Normally, that would be case but it is hard to be be so when ABS-CBN has done an excellent job in making Lastikman look as authentic as possible.
A day after the Zaido premiere, I switched to watching Lastikman just to get a feel with what competition has to offer. And lo and behold I was amazed! From the costume, the set and the actors, Lastikman delivered quality production. In fact quite the opposite sentiments I had for Zaido.
The alien race looks original enough in idea as far as I’m concerned, can’t remember seeing their costumes from any movie or TV I’ve seen plus they are authentic enough for my taste. They were able to stir my interest in wanting to know how they were able to give the aliens the blood-shot eyes and grey complexion. The type of digital effects was superb too. The alien ‘sets’ was well done in such a way that it didn’t feel too crampy. There was a chase scene there that easily scored them lots of quality points from me too. As for their artists well they didn’t fail to disspoint also. And surely, with a comic like Vhong Navarro as lead-star it’s sure to be all fun for the whole family. I have to admit I am impressed.
Overall I’d say this is truly a tragedy. This is a real bad news for us Kapuso. I wished GMA would hire people with more eye for detail. If they are pirating ABS-CBN stars why not the production staff too. I mean quality of work is also important not just who is doing the lead. Please please do something about the stagnation of creativity in your station. I want to see GMA on top for all time. You are already there so please don’t lose it.
