Above average film on a tough subject
20 August 2003 | by JynneSee all my reviews

"A Promise Kept" deals with the subject of vigilantism (and another subject which you'll have to see for yourself). However, unlike most movies the scenes are well handled and tastefully done, and some scenes have very little (if any) dialogue - I found that to be refreshing because most American films tend to have the characters explain EVERY SINGLE emotion or thought, and some scenes just don't need words.

The fight scenes looked a bit choppy to me - perhaps they were edited too much (being a student of the martial arts I admit I'm a little biased in that area). I recommend that people check it out and decide for themselves.
