What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Lindsey Bahr Focus on romance detracts from genocide.
Anika Marais 'n Belofte wat groot skuld maak.
Jim Judy The film feels like it’s doing nothing more than going through the motions, and it never engages the viewer as much as it should and probably could have. It ends up feeling a few hours longer than the 130-some minute runtime, and while it earns a few points for attempting to bring the Armenian genocide to light, I doubt many people will see it or that it will come anywhere close to earning back its production budget.
Tomatometer The Promise wastes an outstanding cast and powerful real-life story on a love triangle that frustratingly fails to engage.
