The review of this Movie prepared by dino

Jack Nicholson makes a promise to the mother of a slain 9 year old girl. Nicholson begins on a downward psychological spiral as he tries to search for the killer. The film is character driven (Director Sean Penn's specialty) but the ending leaves you dissapointed.
