  • "Der Polizeidetektiv Jerry Black (Jack Nickolson) erwartet nicht mehr viel vom Leben. Er ist alt, mürrisch und steht kurz vor der Pensionierung. Die Kollegen wollen ihn schon in die Ferien nach Mexico abschieben, als im Schnee die Leiche eines achtjährigen Mädchens gefunden wird. Für die Polizei ist der Fall schnell geklärt, zumal ein Penner (Benicio Del Toro) festgenommen und zu einem Geständnis genötigt wird. Doch Jerry glaubt das der Mörder noch immer frei herumläuft. Als er persönlich die Eltern über den Tod ihrer Tochter informiert, verspricht er gleichsam der verzweifelten Mutter, den wahren Täter zu finden. (Quelle: Umschlag)."

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."@en
  • "Eigentlich wird er pensioniert, und er könnte jetzt sein Leben geniessen, der Hobby-Angler und Detektiv Jerry Black (Jack Nicholson). Seine Mitarbeiter bereiten ihm eine rauschende Party, schenken ihm ein Flugticket zu den besten Fischgründen Mexikos. Doch an eben dem Tag wird im verschneiten Wald die achtjährige Ginny Larson mit aufgeschlitzter Kehle gefunden. Alles deutet auf einen Mord. In den amerikanischen Mittelwesten verlegte Verfilmung von Friedrich Dürrenmatts Krimi. - Konzentriert und packend inszeniert und gespielt. - Kommentar: Was Sean Penns Version von Dürrenmatts Roman nicht hoch genug angerechnet werden kann, ist, dass er das gegen alle Konventionen des Krimis widersprechende Ende übernommen hat: der Mörder wird trotz raffinierter kriminalistischer Anstrengungen nicht gefasst, sondern stirbt, auf dem Weg zu seinem nächsten Mordopfer, "zufällig" bei einem Autounfall. Denn man darf nicht vergessen, dass Dürrenmatt den Roman "Das Versprechen" nicht zuletzt aus Unzufriedenheit mit der Verfilmung seines Drehbuchs "Es geschah am helllichten Tag" geschrieben hat, ein Film, der aus kommerziellen Gründen ein herkömmliches Finale hat. (Ewald Schreiber, 2008-07-04). (Quelle: www.artfilm.ch, 28.5.2009)."
