Movie Reviews

New York Post - 9/10 by Lou Lumenick Not a film for all tastes, but it's a considerable artistic achievement.
Portland Oregonian - 9/10 by Kim Morgan One of the most aggressively ambiguous pictures of the year. There is a certain power to that.
Boston Globe - 9/10 by Jay Carr In its dark, relentless, devastatingly ironic way, The Pledge is an exhilarating movie, partly because it isn't afraid to be genuinely challenging.
Charlotte Observer - 9/10 by Lawrence Toppman Why on earth didn't Warner Bros. release this movie in time for Oscar consideration? Sure, it's bleak, depressing, sometimes painful to watch. But it would have been one of the best pictures of the year, and Nicholson (who hasn't done work of this caliber since "The Crossing Guard") might have been on the podium again.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert Penn and Nicholson take risks with the material and elevate the movie to another, unanticipated, haunting level.
New York Daily News - 8/10 by Jack Mathews Jack Nicholson in a performance that ranks among his best, yet leaves you feeling unfulfilled as never before.
Chicago Tribune - 8/10 by Michael Wilmington A rare thriller - and a rare American film - that centers on both dramatic and moral issues, crises of conscience. And thanks to a superb central performance by Nicholson as detective Black, it's a film that compels, thrills and ends up coming very close to tragedy.
Mr. Showbiz - 8/10 by Larry Terenzi Works best as a mood piece — the mood, however, is grim.
New York Magazine (Vulture) - 8/10 by Peter Rainer If Penn really lets these actors sing, his watchful camera also knows how to respect their silences.
Baltimore Sun - 8/10 by Chris Kaltenbach Nicholson is terrific here, in a role that demands he act, rather than just be Jack.
The New York Times - 8/10 by Stephen Holden Not a pleasant film, but it is deeply, scarily rewarding.
Christian Science Monitor - 8/10 by David Sterritt The acting is excellent and Penn reconfirms his remarkable talent for muted, understated filmmaking that focuses on character and dialogue rather than spectacle and sensationalism.
