On the night he retires as a Reno detective, Jerry Black pledges to the mother of a murdered girl that he will find the killer. Jerry doesn't believe the police arrested the right man; he discovers that this is the third incident in the area in the recent past with victims young, blonde, pretty, and small for their age. So he buys an old gas station in the mountains near the crimes in order to search for a tall man who drives a black station wagon, gives toy porcupines as gifts, and calls himself the wizard, all clues from a drawing by the dead girl. Jerry's solitary life gives way to friendship with a woman and her small, blonde daughter. Has Jerry neglected something that may prove fatal?Written by
Although the film is set in Reno, Nevada, none of the other places named in the film (such as Becker and Monash Counties) exist in Nevada. See more »
When Jerry is driving through the fences in the field, the window trim is damaged and the side mirror is turned inwards. However in the last scene but one, the car loses all its battle damage and the mirror is again straight. Not only that, but the big "cowcatcher" also disappears and the sunroof which previously was closed, is now open. As Jerry comes to a halt at the church, everything is as it should be. See more »
All the comments I read are equally, love it or hate it. I'll settle the dispute.
The Pledge is a....... good movie.
I see how people can dislike it, it is a kind of long movie, and you have to be patient with it. The ending is kind of frustrating to those seeking all the answers, but anyone with a fairly open mind will like it instantly.
The movie was good, I liked it, my mom and my little sister even liked it.
Sean Penn made sure not to try to win over a crown using the generic appeal, sex, gore, et cetera. He was very classy with this movie, good job on his part.
Acting was good throughout the movie, Jack Nicholson did a good job, I especially liked Benicio Del Toro's part, even though it was not too long.
I don't know, pretty much, it's a good movie, nothing out of the ball park. But it is worth the watch.
