The problem isn't a lack of substance, and certainly not a dearth of talent, but a shortage of fun.

The movie wouldn't be imaginable without its commanding star. Nicholson is in virtually every scene underplaying to great effect
Penn is a true talent, but there's just enough languid pretension to The Pledge to make you wonder if he's ultimately more interested in parading his promise as a director than in fulfilling it.
Penn and Nicholson take risks with the material and elevate the movie to another, unanticipated, haunting level.
