  1. the_mentaculus's rating of the film The Promise

    Full of power-play posturing, overblown narratives, bombastic set pieces and truly nauseating CGI that would have lent itself better to one of Chow's moleitaus. But can I dismiss it? Not entirely. Its operatic form seems to latch itself onto some repressed recess in the mind where dreams become deja vu. So the ending is brave in its own way.

  2. Sơn Nguyễn's rating of the film The Promise

    A beautiful fairy tale made by a masterful director. Cinematography is wonderful. Though, Jang Dong Gun is a little dull and the movie is overlong.

  3. VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film The Promise

    Despues de las extraordinarias Adios a mi concubina y El emperador y el asesino, Kaige Chen sigue los pasos de Ang Lee, Zhang Yimou y Wong Kar Wai y le entra a la moda del "Wu-xia". Desafortunadamente, su aportaciòn al cine epico de chingadazos representa la peor cagada de toda su carrera. Mamona y aburrida hasta la chingada, los muy escasos aciertos visuales no consiguen salvar de la hoguera a la presente joyita.
