Reviews:

2.0          Philbert Dy (Click the City)

Tum: My Pledge of Love is inspiration without restraint, passion speaking without the benefit of experience. While the film may have its heart in the right place, it isn’t quite enough to produce a worthy product.” (Read full review)

2.0          Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

“The canvas is really perfect for Padilla’s narrative: it is a chopsuey of romance, drama, musical, action and whimsical fantasy. Unfortunately, Padilla’s technical know-how doesn’t quite approximate his unmitigated ambition.” (Read full review)

1.5          Mario Bautista (Showbiz Portal)

“The actual movie is a test of patience dahil patalon-talon ang narrative flow, with some jarring transitions from one scene to another that borders on the incomprehensible.” (Read full review)

1.5          Ria Limjap (Spot.ph)

“Robin Padilla shamelessly uses the conventions of a bodice-ripper romance novel, borrows a few tricks from Bollywood (song and dance numbers using VST classics like Ipagpatawad Mo and Awitin Mo at Isasayaw ko), takes a few elements from the martial arts genre, and throws in lot of Pinoy-style melodrama.” (Read full review)

1.5          Earl Villanueva (PEP)
“In the end, Tum: My Pledge of Love just does not cut it as a cinematic masterpiece. Although it tackles serious issues like religious and cultural clashes, the story-telling is too loose and lacking in depth. The movie’s several conflicts (there are so many of them) are easily resolved superficially.” (Read full review)

1.0         Reymundo Salao (Bukisa)

Tum: My Pledge of Love is its own monster, pure high grade garbage; to the point that its pureness can become appealing to those with twisted perverse tastes in film quality, those who find a degree of amusing appreciation for the stinkiest of B-movies.” (Read full review)
