Pride and Glory Reviews

Josh Bell
Las Vegas Weekly

Constructed almost entirely out of cop-drama clichés.

What we're left with isn't an embarrassment, but isn't anything for this proud cast to glory in, either.

October 22, 2008

Dull, predictable, ugly, filled with bad or lackluster performances, contains objectionable racial material and just generally lacking in anything worthwhile. One of the worst movies of the year.

It follows the well-worn pathways of countless police dramas before it.

It wants to be different; yet, in the end, the elements that separate this police corruption film from those with similar themes and subjects are those that derail the climax and send this freight train careening out of control.

Nell Minow
Beliefnet

Over-used clichés like a slow-motion funeral procession in the snow and over-used dialogue like "You got no idea what it takes to do what we do." Now that's a crime.

Pride and Glory is full of interesting little grace notes, and the cast is excellent, yet it grows more and more frustrating. It has everything going for it except a story that doesn't send the audience out miles ahead of the plot developments.

Sonny Bunch
Washington Times

Pride and Glory doesn't add anything to the generic crooked-cop procedural that we haven't seen with more verve in better movies.

Full Review Source: Washington Times | Original Score: 2.5/4

Matt Soergel
Florida Times-Union

No button remains unpushed, no shred of scenery remains unshredded and no F-bomb remains unuttered.

December 24, 2009

Just as the title itself doesn't give us enough, Pride and Glory needed to plumb deeper in order to rise above the business-as-usual cop family drama.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Granted, the opening scenes are a shaky-cam chaos. Mawkishness and bleating illogic plague the endgame. But I might have forgiven even that had the remainder of the movie not been ruined in the trailer.

Edward Douglas
ComingSoon.net

As hard as it must have been to screw up a Joe Carnahan script, the fact that Gavin O'Connor is no Martin Scorsese or Michael Mann is blatantly obvious from this weak effort.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Pride and Glory, despite a subtle performance from Norton and some vivid action scenes, is just not that special.

Todd Gilchrist
IGN Movies

Pride and Glory is a bleak, boring and hopelessly familiar corrupt cop story that simply does not work despite the determined, top-of-their-game efforts of O'Connor and Norton, not to mention Colin Farrell, Jon Voight and others.

What Would Toto Watch?

If cop movie cliches are a crime against cinema, Pride and Glory should be under arrest.

Pride and Glory would be a pretty cool movie if it were made in 1982.

Nick Schager
Slant Magazine

Pride and Glory's commentary on law enforcement vice and decency is far less immediate and realistic than its gritty aesthetic and tone would have one believe.

Grim, abrasive, and hard to watch, full of swaggering men shouting at each other like high school drama students who have just learned how to be vulgar.

David Stratton
The Australian

The actors in Pride and Glory do their best with this cliched material, but the film is so grim, ugly and miserable that it's difficult to sympathise with even the most positive characters.

Hard to watch, hard to listen to and hard to follow.
