The film was still a fun one that will make you laugh and have you leaving the theater feeling like you just stole something valuable and got away with it.
The acting is good, and the firecracker script has some excellent ideas.
Great movie. Not sure what people expected but I found it highly entertaining.
Pride & Glory is a gritty police melodrama that grabs the audience, shakes them till the point of concussion and wrings the life out of them with it's nonstop intensity and performances that could raise buildings to the ground. Think I'm exaggerating or overselling? Give it a go, it's fucking nuts. NYC cop dramas are a common occurrence out there, and have been for a long while, but something about this one just rings eerily true, rattles your cage and lets both the violence and corruption seep into the marrow of one's viewing experience. After a drug deal erupts into multiple murder, a family of cops is thrown in an uproar. Haggard straight arrow Edward Norton is on point of investigation by boozy patriarch Jon Voight, and ends up finding out way more than he bargained for not only in regards to the NYPD, but about his fellow cop brother (Colin Farrell) too. Their third brother (underrated Noah Emmerich) is too busy taking care of his sick wife (Jennifer Ehle) to notice the corruption, or maybe does and looks the other way. Every faction adds to the pressure cooker of an atmosphere, rooted in the familial relationships that can't withstand dangerous secrets. They should call the guy Colin Feral, because he's a right beast as a guy whose moral compass is so out of whack he doesn't know who he is anymore. The actor is fervently complex in his work, and makes the guy way more human than other performers would, but he's still terrifying, whether threatening a newborn baby with a hot iron or full on brawling with Norton in a fracas of a man to man bar-fight. Voight is one of those characters who is so corrupt he doesn't even notice it anymore, which is a dangerous avenue to arrive at when you're in such a position of power. The supporting cast is pockmarked with fiery work from terrific actors including super underrated Carmen Ejogo, Wayne Duvall, John Ortiz, Lake Bell and two arresting turns from reliable firebrands Frank Grillo and Shea Wigham. Built around a script by Joe Carnahan, who feeds off of authentic dialogue and realistic shaping of events, this is one that pulls you right into it's suffocating world of beleaguered sentinels of law enforcement whose eyes have become dim to that thin blue line separating order and madness. Brilliant, heavy stuff.
Outstanding cop thriller movie full of suspense, grittiness, action, drama and gut punch delivered excellently by a stellar cast who makes it seem so real that you accept it as it unfolds. Cop movies that are done right come across raw and ready which is the case here. We are also introduced to the dark side of being a cop, a very thin line divides the good from the bad and that line hammers away trying to get you to cross it. Some cops handle it better than others and some make the mistake and come back but there are those that lose the way back and this movie covers the subject quite well. The power that police possess is formidable. It just doesn't start or end with them but reaches out into the court systems and literally can affect your life for the good or the bad depending on how you respond and of course how they respond to you. We learn what all men learn during this brief earthly journey and that is there is no place to hide from ones own conscience and it has been tried over the centuries. It remains impossible to do unless one repents (changes) and begins anew. The movie covers that well too. A dirty cop is shown no mercy by anyone starting with the public, then to good cops and finally the courts so going bad is not good and never works out. The problem is with anything forbidden, it becomes thrilling, exciting and like a drug and after a while what you got into gets into you and owns you. The movie covers this too. Good movie to snack with and you will need something to keep your fingers busy or you will chew nails at a couple points. Better to chew popcorn or sunflower seeds. Include a tasty drink. Well done to all on this movie. BTW...the ending is submitted and makes for good discussion should you choose too
Four NYPD cops are down in a drug bust gone wrong. Ray Tierney (Edward Norton) heads the investigation. It's what his father ex-cop brass Francis Sr (Jon Voight) wants. The four are his brother Francis Jr (Noah Emmerich)'s men. As Ray digs, he finds corruption in the department that has entangled his family. Jimmy Egan (Colin Farrell) is his brother-in-law who leads a group of corrupted cops.It's a gritty crime drama with lots of top notch acting talents. The acting is good, but there is nothing here that is new or surprising. Writer/director Gavin O'Connor has infused this movie with a grimy messy style. The tone is dark. The story is a little bit confused with a few too many characters' POV and is also somewhat formulaic. It's a movie that has been done better elsewhere.
A good gritty movie full of scenes of violence and corrupt cops who get what they deserve. All in all it is a good movie if you are a fan of corruption, gore and good guys winning over evil ass hole type guys who are so stero-typed in this movie, you know it has to be good!A family of policemen spanning all generations find out that one of their brothers is involved in corrupt policing, killing people, stealing drugs and killing peoples families. It all goes well and he gets away with it at first, until one of the other corrupt police officers kills himself after snitching. The two brothers argue and While one tries to frame the other, bad things happen. Not an original plot, but the movie does have an original refreshing take on things, although I would have liked the babies face to have been melted with the iron, rather than pulling away at the last moment.The film is good and watchable until the end where it seems to have four endings one after the other which confuses you as to what the actual outcome of the story was. Other than that, a great film with some awesome scenes of violence and a storyline that keeps you guessing.
