Transmutators is a 2023 Filipino science fiction action film set in a time when mutants and behemoth alien warriors have come to a rule. A rebel group of survivors must embrace mega fighting machines to take on intergalactic invaders threatening humanity. Originally titled Resiklo (“Recycle”) it’s been edited down from 110 minutes to 90 minutes, dubbed into English, retitled and given a US release.

Directed by Mark A. Reyes (Mystified). Produced by Andrea M. Bautista [as Andrea B. Ynares]

The Imus Productions movie stars Ryan Bondoc, Will M. Herrera, Richard Campos, Yvette Marie Tagura and De Veyra Joanna.

“Given the fact the film has been cut by twenty minutes and given the kind of dubbing that will make anyone a fan of subtitles, I can’t speculate on the original’s plotting. But the version on display here is pure cheese and that’s what saved it for me. From scenes where the weather changes from shot to shot to an alien ship being brought down by flying gas cylinders, it’s full of WTF moments that kept me watching.” 2.5 out of 5, Voices from the Balcony
