Audience Reviews for The Promise

There is a lot of honesty and truth in what it wants to say, especially in the way it avoids making Marion a one-dimensional villain, but the result is a passable yet sappy love story with good performances but inevitably weakened by its corny dialogue.

Young couple in love, his mother objects. They suffer a horrendous car accident during which her face is destroyed, his mother pays her off with reconstructive surgery. She emerges looking...remarkably similar? He doesn't notice when they met. Uh right. Gooey nonsense at least has nice San Francisco locations and decent actors working with a silly script.
