They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but it can make for some awfully dull films. The line between inspiration and imitation is fine crossed repeatedly. Pride and Glory isn't the worst offender, just the latest.

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

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

This predictable police corruption story with an A-list cast explores themes of family and honesty as two cop brothers uncover the dirt on their brother-in-law's violent activity, while senior cop Dad tries to keep things under control.

Uma pena que o filme jamais consiga escapar realmente do lugar comum, implodindo de vez em seu terrível terceiro ato.

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

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.

I thought this film was a mess.

As a drama, Pride and Glory is too glum, and worse, it doesn't convince.

Daily Telegraph (Australia)
February 5, 2009
Director and co-writer Gavin O'Connor is the son of a former New York policeman, and displays a strong grasp of the familial and fraternal ties that bind his characters together.

While its kinetic appeal does have a numbing - if temporary effect - on your critical faculties, television has been much more successful in claiming this territory as its own.

January 31, 2009
Relentlessly dour, filled with unsympathetic characters, and made out of cardboard melodrama. It's the last of those sins that is unforgivable. [Blu-ray]

It's predictable, it's also escapist entertainment.

...only skims the surface of its characters and offers nothing new in the way of corrupt law enforcement.

Elevated by superb performances, led by Edward Norton and a very chilling Colin Farrell.

What's especially lamentable is that this movie strands yet another exemplary turn by Edward Norton, who once again is superior to the material surrounding him.

Top Critic
November 10, 2008
What it lacks in subtlety and intelligence it makes up in violence, brutishness, and hackneyed story lines. These are qualities best enjoyed at home.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Empire Magazine
November 7, 2008
A well-acted and tightly structured piece that would be more impactful if there weren't a feeling that we've seen it before.
