Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 09/20/2007
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Brilliant film. Brilliant director....Cronenberg brings us face to face with the horror of self."
USA Today - 09/14/2007
3 stars out of 4 -- "EASTERN PROMISES has a compelling story and strong performances....Provocative and engrossing, with an intriguing twist near the conclusion."
New York Times - 09/14/2007
"Mr. Cronenberg insists on getting under your skin. The result is a movie whose images and implications are likely to stay in your head for a long time."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/01/2007
"[I]ntriguing....EASTERN PROMISES unpeels like an onion of corruption, with double crosses and deceptions, and ordinary do-gooders in way over their heads. Cronenberg's craftsmanship is seductive." -- Grade: B
Uncut - 11/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]ynotic and queasy, it delivers the director's trademark traumas in abundance."
Uncut - 11/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] distinctive new spin on the London crime yarn: a bleak, unsettling thriller that's nightmare made flesh."
Empire - 11/01/2007
3 stars out of 5 -- "[Cronenberg] revels in the detail, fascinated by conflicted nostalgia for the old country and the tattoos that ensure a Russian gangster's past is permanently etched into his body..."
Sight and Sound - 11/01/2007
"The continuity between EASTERN PROMISES and Cronenberg's early works is maintained through two themes: violence and the body. The violence in EASTERN PROMISES is at times breathtakingly brutal..."
Ultimate DVD - 12/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "The excellent Mortensen is utterly mesmeric....A darkly unforgettable crime thriller..."
Los Angeles Times - 09/14/2007
"Expertly realized and gummetal slick, EASTERN PROMISES whirs along with perfect efficiency..."
Rolling Stone - 12/27/2007
Ranked #4 in Rolling Stone's "10 Best Movies Of 2007" -- "[A] brutally mesmeric tale of the Russian mob in London."
Wall Street Journal - 05/07/2010
"David Cronenberg's harsh but powerful film conjures up a violent world of bottomless evil, yet holds out, through Anna and Ms. Watts's lovely performance, the possibility of doing good."
