Product Overview

A new epic fantasy set in China's mythical past, The Promise is a visually stunning tale of passion that unfolds against a backdrop of war as a beautiful and mysterious princess becomes the object of affection for three very different men - a powerful Duke, a brave general and a lowly slave. As passions spark and egos clash, lives will be ruined and lovers spurned and no one will ever be the same.

Review If only The Promise played out on screen as well as it sounds on the written page...The story has the potential to be an epic melodrama filled with doomed love and great acts of heroism. Unfortunately, the product delivered to American theaters by Warner Independent lacks passion and coherence. It is jarringly disjointed, especially during the first half. Things eventually get on track, but we're not invested enough in the characters or their plight for the predictable conclusion to have much meaning.

Review The Promise is pretty much a mess of a movie; the acting is overwrought, the plot is too tangled to play like anything but a plot, and although I know you can create terrific special effects at home in the basement on your computer, the CGI work in this movie looks like it was done with a dial-up connection.
