The Pledge back to product details

philip k dick?
written by rarcher August 21, 2003 - 10:10 AM PDT
i liked this film
has this sort of "you'll never know the truth" thing going
almost like if philip k had written a non-scifi mystery

i know del torro has gotten a lot of praise for his little part
well, maybe that's coming from people who've never hung out with real indians cuz i found him completely unconvincing

Jack Nicholson as Jack Nicholson.

For a movie that has so much going for it, "The Pledge" fails to live up to expectations ultimately leading to an completely unsatisfactory ending. The first and main fault to take note of is that this movie seems to be two storylines: that of an obsessed cop tracking a serial killer and then a retiree buying a broken down gas station and developing an unlikely family relationship. When the film comes full circle and goes back to becoming a cop movie, the movie falls flat on it's back with a totally lame ending where nothing at all climactic happens. Incredibly, much of it's glorious cast appear on-screen much too briefly with Del Torro virtually unrecognizable yet astounding in a brief yet pivotal role. As always, Jack Nicholson plays Jack Nicholson whether he be a retired cop, hotel caretaker, comic book villian or arrogant astronaut.
