When a prominent drug dealer is murdered, Sergeant Acosta and agent Francis discover a massive conspiracy: the killers are inmates, temporarily released from jail as assassins. Caught in web of deceit, Acosta and Francis are on a collision course with corrupt and dangerous government officials.

Our take

Taking to the streets of Manila for a cynical tale of ambitious hitmen and no-good cops, this fierce Philippine thriller from Erik Matti transcends its B-movie credentials. Opening with a kinetic daylight assassination, On the Job soon transforms into a panoramic portrait of urban corruption.
