Informative and touching movie
Great movie !
With all these well known Actors, you would have thought that they would have done research on the calamitiea of the War of 1890 to 1920 not just focuses on the Atmenian losses but lives of other citizens of the Ottomans at the time. After 100 years, are people realizing that it was a Genocide. What a one sided movie this was. Were the "Dashnag" , Armenian army formed to be terrorist completely innocent in this Civilian War. Genocide denotes an intent to eliminate a race, and this was not the case of the Ottaman Empire in that era.....
This is a beautifully directed and acted film about the Turkish Genocide against the Armenians! I encourage everyone to see The Promise--in honor of those of us who grew up with grandparents and great grandparents who survived horrific cruelty, and who witnessed their homes being burned, their villages being invaded, and their families slaughtered. This film honors my ancestors and all Armenians, and it brings to light the greatest denial of Genocide committed by the Ottoman Empire.
Outstanding documentary chronicles the making of Bruce Springsteen's seminal Darkness on the Edge of Town album.
It is an excellent movie,depicting how cruel the Ottoman Turks were at that time.It is so shameful that they have denied over a hundred years about the Armenian Genocide.I guess the Turkish government never taught them in school about the real facts about the massacres.
Denying the past we destroy the future.
A sobering take on the Armenian Genocide, a crime against humanity still being denied 102 years after its execution by its perpetrators. Very touching.
Touchy and informative.
A great movie with a great story.
A truly excellent film in the same league as the great epics of the past, like Ben Hur, Dr Zhivago and the like. A love story set in the middle of the historically accurate Turkish Genocide carried out against the Armenian population. This must be a contender for an Oscar or BAFTA. Great story, great acting, great everything.
Very well presented the whole truth, this happened to every single Armenian family, forced to leave their city and country to Dehr Zor Desert in 1914-1915.
It is an amazing movie that brings out a century old hidden truth to 21st century audience. this is the most effective way to learn from past mistreats toward reconciliation. We all belong to this world and together we will take care of this wonderful world!
Excellent movie. Director Terry George masterfully incorporated complicated and thorny historical facts with a love story. This movie follows the fine tradition of David Lean and other movie directors filmmaking. The Promise should be nominated for an Oscar.
If you are disgusted from what is happening in Syria and Iraq, please see this movie. Great movie to watch and learn from. This love story has a sad background, which depicts the twentieth century's first Genocide. Go and see, you will change, or maybe learn something.
A must see for everyone...
A must see for everyone. Just to see what kind barberic atrocities people can do
Such a great and touching movie.
What a movie ! Learned a lot about the armenian genocide.
Really recommend it
A must see movie! Thank you Kirk Kerkorian and the entire production team too!
It was an important film which depicted the Armenian Genocide. An important part of history that needs to be told in order to prevent future genocides. Christian Bale was amazing along with the rest of the cast. Great Movie! Must see!
This movie tells the story about a tragic event that happened a hundred years ago. The story needs to be told and we need to understand that if it happened once it can certainly happen again. Much like the Holocaust - never forget.
Unbelievable story and great production. Amazing cast and awesome presentation of Armenian Genocide. Did not show blood and torture but the story tells you the atrocities of that era! I saw it twice. Going to see it again with friends.
Superb! The film is interesting and full of action and suspense. It is very well prepared and directed. The historic scenes, locations and costumes for real events which happened more than 100 years is amazing! There were about 2.1 million Armenians living in the Ottoman empire in 1914, and about 387,800 by 1922, according to The University of Minnesota’s Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Where are they now? A must see.
It's a powerful movie based on true events, it is entertaining, tragic with historical facts and educational at the same time... A must see movie!
Powerful and historically important film while at the same time a beautiful but sad love story. Watch it for the brilliant storytelling, great acting. Great cinematography.
Daughter of Survivor, of the Genocide perpetrated by Turkey and continuously denied by Turkey. I honor the memory of Kirk Kirkorian for funding, and thank all involved in the production. The movie has mitigated violence compared to eye witness accounts and experiences. Death in Historic Armenia, deportations, river colored red with innocent blood and do much more absent from the movie. Excellent acting and production.
Excellent movie ! Everybody should see ...
This was an amazing movie that portrayed the Armenian genocide. We will never forget or forgive what the Turks did to us. Everyone must see this movie, including all Armenians and non-Armenians
A film that presents the deeper meaning of the Armenian Genocide
Don't miss it! Best movie I've ever seen with a deep message!
OMG !!!! I loved it !!! A must see!!! Tells all the truth about the Armenian Genocide, despite the denial machine going against the movie! Kudos to Terry George and the wonderful cast!
Amazing movie about The Armenian Genocide! Loved the fact that real historical characters were also included ! A must see to get a sense of the enormity of this inconvenient & forgotten Genocide!
