To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. I have noticed that Sean Penn never got much credit for his directing career but, even though he might not be a great master, I always found his work really intriguing.

When Critics and Audiences Disagree (252 movies items)

"Critics: 78% Audiences: 59% Critics Consensus: Though its subject matter is grim and may make viewers queasy, The Pledge features an excellent, subtle performance by Jack Nicholson."
