The Pledge (2008/Western/RHI/Genius DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Telefilm: D



Another bad, processed Western, the Luke Perry/C. Thomas Howell/RHI TV movie The Pledge (2008, NOT to be confused with the great Jack Nicholson film) is a poor excuse for a Revenge Western, the actors are stuck with bad material, Perry is never convincing in the short 79 minutes we do get and this is a total waste.  Every new Western needs to reinvent the genre and this mess does not know where to being.  Skip it!


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is soft and never looks good, with lame compositions and limited money on the screen.  The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix lacks any kind of soundfield, stretching the original, meager soundmaster (which was likely not multi-channel) to thinness.  There are no extras.
