Liked the older brother with sick wife. Corrupt cops in family. Realistic, good performances

Hammy, melodramatic and formulaic to a fault, Pride and Glory is a shade of better corrupt cop movies. The cast has talent no doubt, but only Colin Farrell gets to shine while everyone else seems to be on auto pilot. Jon Voight's only motivation is to say "cops protect cops" and nothing more, while the villains are all one dimensional. The movie even ends in a tight little bow and is not very satisfying.

Pride and Glory is a movie that has a strong cast, but not a strong story or a dialogue to compete with the cast.

Ray Tierney (Edward Norton) comes from a family of cops, and was the best of the lot until an accident in the line of duty cut his career short. One night, after multiple officers are shot and killed, it becomes clear that there is a large corruption ring at work within the NYPD, and the brass turn to Ray to find out the truth, a truth that could lead him right back home. Edward Norton is truly a chameleon in that he can play absolutely any role and be believable. It doesn't matter if he's some computer geek or a tough as nails cop, he always does a great job and no matter what he's in, the film is always going to have an air of credibility for it. The rest of the cast, as well as the story are also pretty good, but this film isn't without it's problems. As with other films that have complex stories and large casts, the story moves so quickly and characters are introduced so fast, that it's difficult to keep track of what's going on and nearly impossible to remember who is who. The story is great and the main characters are well written, but there is so much going on, that it is very easy to get lost in all the side stories. The bottom line is that Pride and Glory would be better suited as a TV series than a movie, but then you wouldn't have the big named cast, and it probably wouldn't last four episodes. The actions scenes are great, the main characters are intense, and the story was terrific if not a bit more complicated than it needed to be.

Meh, looks like they were going for a Departed style epic. But it ended up being very slow and VERY long. Everyone was good in it though

Have no idea why this movie has poor review, I mean the acting isn't amazing, and the use of corrupt cops is overused to say the least, but this is still great movie. The story is good, the script is too. Everything is simply well done, with a good pace, tense and thrilling often, and exciting action. The gore is common and bloody, with a very real look. I don't really have much to say about it but besides the use of corrupt cops (which is unavoidable) and average acting, this is a well done exciting movie that keeps us guessing. Second best cop movie I've seen, after End of Watch.

A gritty well acted well detailed powerful and gripping police drama. That has a good cast but does have many a clichà (C)d line when it comes to Colin Farrell's script.
½ January 2, 2015
Gritty and dark but lacks character development to help us feel, relate and create attachment. Didn't care what happened.

This is a cop crime movie much like "We own the night" and other similar ones. I liked this flick a bit more tho. A good story about police corruption taking place in New York. Acting was good and Edward Norton takes care of that part like he always do. Colin Farrell did a great role aswell along with Jon Voight. A highly recommended movie if you like these kind of flicks.

You can't beat a good 'Family of Cops' New York drama. This one has every cliche under the sun, the Dad is the forceful boss, one brother can't be trusted, brothers fight, there is a formal funeral in the rain, one brother lives on a boat etc etc. It's better than most of the cheesy films that have come before in the genre but unfortunately that fact doesn't do it any favours because as entertaining as it is, we've seen it all before. Elizabeth Bennet shaved her head though, so respect given.

The acting is good. But Pride and Glory doesn't do anything different with it's genre.

good crooked cop movie
½ August 11, 2014
Tedious, paced like a snail and worst of all, stuck in between gears, 'Pride and Glory' wastes the talent on hand with its story retread. Bits & pieces are somewhat watchable (very small bits mind you) but the story on the whole is to unfocused to matter. The familial connection between officers and the actual families are hammered in the audiences face through the usual scenes, but fail to latch on. Not recommended, due to its formidable forgettableness but in the visual and the narrative.

There is zero pride and absolutely zero glory in this film.

A all-star cast with many twists and turns where you have no clue what's going to happen! Edward Norton and Colin Farrells brotherly love truly shine in this film
