Reviews (5) of The Pledge

Enjoyable portrayal - The Pledge review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

An intriguing murder mystery that's also effective as a character study.

Penn shows maturity patience and acting knowledge in letting the actors discover those moments, rhythms, and their quirks that make characters believable.

With the purposefully shaky hand of Jack Nicholson giving its power - some developments have a natural predictability, the movie ends up taking us on a journey that is unexpected and shattering.

What a cast! - The Pledge review by JD

Spoiler Alert

Looking at the cast you might expect a real gem. Vanessa Redgrave, Micky Rooney, Jack Nicholson in the lead role. The plot and direction, sadly, let it down. A very ordinary detective drama. Sean Penn is definitely a better actor than director. The stunning cast with great acting keep this from being a 2 star.
