Starring (JErry) Jack Nicholson. A retiring police chief pledges to catch the killer of a young child... it was a good movie, I was just kind of disappointed about the ending- the main characters didn't get what they deserved. spoilers ahead: The killer who did heinous crimes, brutally killing and raping little girls; and the cop who tried his best to catch the real killer was pushed to insanity. It was just so sad.. I kind of hate Aaron Eckhart's character- if he didn't put the words in the mouth of the suspect, they could have pursued the real killer and Jerry could have had a family..

Serial killers can really destroy alot of people and enjoy doing it. I don't think I saw this. Jack is a very good actor. I haven't seen him in anything in years now. Drove the cops nuts huh? He must have really got into it personally. They aren't really supposed to for just this reason.

Well, i think it was because he made a promise to the mother of one of the murdered girls. It was insane really, the mother asked if he would promise, on his salvation or soul to find the killer. That's what made him crazy.

Oh, i also heard there was a book... I loved Jack's acting here too-he portrayed it pretty well. I just hated the ending, I really hate tragedies, Jerry didn't deserve what he got, he just wanted to find the real killer.

I admire Jack Nicholson, he usually plays his part well. I have not seen this mvie though- I have only read reviews about it. And it seems there are two sides about the ending, some believe Jerry was right while a few others don't. What do you think?
