The Promise aka The Crimson Armour is a remake of the ancient wuxia tale (written in about 880AD) The Slave Kunlun. This movie by Chen Kaige is somewhat different that his others in that there's extensive use of computer imagery - one might even say that there's too much use of computer generated images in this film. Ok, there is too much use of them. The only exception, in my opinion, are the few scenes at the beginning of the story where the young QuinCheng first meets the goddess Manshen (gorgeous scenes which set up the rest of the story). The film, while a bit disjointed is otherwise quite charming.

This movie is beatiful.

The Promise a été mon coup de foudre. Le film est riche en couleur et les scènes s'enchaïnent merveilleusement. L'histoire est d'un rafinement et d'une légèreté à couper le soufle. Les costumes sont somptueux.

2.0 out of 5 stars Broken Promise March 2 2007
By Doctor Jenks - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film was a complete disappointment. I have been a fan of Chinese films for years ( both mainland and Hong Kong) and there are certain things that I've come to expect: 1. An original concept or original approach to a popular concept, 2. Atleast an attempt at moving performances ( You ever notice how,even in cheesy exploitatative Hong Kong pictures, the actors seem to be taking there performances and the material very seriously?) and 3. Tight, clever, and well executed action sequences. In this film you get none of those things. The concept is weak, the acting is tired (with the exception of Hiroyuki Sanada as The General), and the fight scenes are sloppy (they kind of flop around at each other like in a Jean Claude Van-Damme movie). To be fair, I believe that the version of the film I saw was the American cut which is missing 19 minutes of footage from the original, and from what I could tell from the "deleted scenes" section of the disk, this may account for why the characters' motivation makes no sense. The only redeeming parts of the film are a few really beautiful FX/scenic shots, but these shots are static. The best shots in an action film are static shots... Promise...Broken....

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Film for Fans of Asian Cinema and Anime Aug. 25 2008
By Gene Bates - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The Promise is an exquisite film full of lush colors and unique characters all wrapped up in a great fantasy setting. There is some initial silliness during the time the main character is introduced; however, it is disposed of rather quickly and the remainder of the film is a wonder to behold. If you enjoy Asian films or anime (Japanese Animation) you will enjoy the characters in this film and the unique world they inhabit. If you enjoyed Hero or House of Flying Daggers and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon you'll like this.
