Ang Panday is a 2017 Filipino action-fantasy film directed by Coco Martin, who also stars in the lead role. The movie is a reboot of the original 1980 film of the same name, which starred Fernando Poe Jr. as the iconic armored hero. The story follows Flavio III (Coco Martin), a simple blacksmith who lives in a small village with his grandfather (played by Jaime Fabregas). Flavio III learns that his family's ancestral sword, which is said to have the power to defeat evil, has been stolen by the evil Lizardo (Jake Cuenca) and his army of monsters. Lizardo is set on ruling the world and wants to accomplish his goal at any cost.

Flavio III is then entrusted with the task of becoming the new Panday, a legendary warrior who dons an armor that gives him superhuman strength and the ability to fly. With the help of his friends, the village's children, and a newfound ally named Samuel (played by Awra Briguela), Flavio III embarks on a perilous journey to retrieve the sword and restore peace to the world.

As the story unfolds, Flavio III faces many challenges and obstacles along the way, including battles with Lizardo's henchmen and his own personal doubts about his abilities. He must also come to terms with the responsibility that comes with being the Panday and decide whether he is willing to sacrifice everything to save the world.

The movie is filled with action-packed fight scenes, impressive visual effects, and a healthy dose of humor. The cast, particularly Coco Martin, shines in their roles and brings depth and emotion to their characters. The child actors, led by Awra Briguela, also give noteworthy performances and add a touch of levity to the proceedings.

In addition to its entertainment value, Ang Panday also tackles themes such as heroism, family, and redemption. The movie shows how even the most ordinary person can rise up to become a hero if given the opportunity and the courage to do so. It also emphasizes the importance of family and the sacrifices that one must make to protect their loved ones.

Overall, Ang Panday is an enjoyable and compelling movie that appeals to both fans of action-fantasy and those looking for a heartwarming story about the power of courage and family. It stands out as a modern adaptation of a beloved Filipino classic and cements Coco Martin's status as one of the country's best actors and directors.
