Default 'Eastern Promises' -- High-Def Digest review

Kenneth's review of 'Eastern Promises' is up. He's a fan of the film itself, and says this HD DVD release is a nice match, boasting a reference-quality video transfer and a TrueHD track that makes the most of what it's given.

Ooh, wow, excellent. I should be receiving this today from Amazon (along with Kingdom), so this should be sweet. The 5 star video rating is very nice...

I disagree with "worth a look" because this movie really SHOULD be seen, even by some with weaker stomachs. If people avoided movies because there's some violence in it, think of how few people would have seen Godfather upon release. Same with pretty much any Scorsese mob movie.

I think Eastern Promises is one of the best films of 2007.

hello all, watched this movie last night and yes pq was amazing and yes the movie itself was really good. Definitley alot better than history of violence. i think this movie should have been recommended. and watching a mafia movie not running 3 hours was very enjoyable...lol. Past month i've watched goodfellas, casino, and donnie brasco...all 2.5 to 3 hours long each. Overall, just watch easter promises, you wont regret it.

seen the sd version the other day and was blown away by the movie. I really enjoyed it. It reminded me of a Scorsese flick. I won't give anything away, but this movie has one hell of a twist to it.

I got my copy (along with Pan's Labyrinth) yesterday. I'm gonna watch it tonight!

And reviews' recommendations should be an amalgamation of all the HD attributes. If Citizen Kane had a less than stellar HD transfer, I would STILL recommend it based on the magnificence of the film.

HD DVD is on a roll!
