Yes, this theme has been overused, but it was the acting that made this production stand apart. It was superb! You can't help but become enmeshed with this Irish family of cops, spanning generations, who find themselves with colliding ethics. Their intense love and respect for one another is palpable and quite sad. Even when doing 'the right thing,' when confronting someone you love---particularly family, the feelings of betrayal are overwhelming and this was so well drawn out with these amazing characters.
Edward Norton's portrayal of the NYPD Detective (Ray) attempting to redeem himself for misuse of power previously, is gritty and intense. But, he's a damaged man; his behavior could be unpredictable. You can't wait to see him facing unimaginable choices on his road to redemption. One of his best roles, to date, IMHO.
Colin Farrell (Jimmy) did not disappoint as the very, very, bad boy, brother-in- law. He does bad, SOOOO well!
Police Commander, Noah Emmerich (Francis Jr.), tugs at your heart, as the older brother of Norton. He is facing the loss of his wife to cancer, while having to confront issues within himself of turning a blind eye to some of the behaviors of 'his boys,' allowing things to spiral out of control. How far have his professional ethics been tested?
John Voigt (Francis Sr.), the Patriarch of the family and a strong defender for maintaining the honor of the force, at all costs, was wonderful.Read more ›
Bottom line: Despite a lack of originality and a couple other flaws, this is a well-acted cop drama.
Richard Yee, author of Deliveries: A Collection
Edward Norton, Jon Voight, Colin Farrell, and Noah Emmerich are sensational. What an ensemble! Norton plays a detective investigating the deaths of four cops gunned down in what he learns is a setup, as he uncovers disturbing evidence of widespread graft and corruption on the part of his brother-in-law (Farrell), while his brother, the precinct captain (Emmerich), has been conveniently looking the other way. The family patriarch (Voight) is more interested in his family protecting one another than getting to the truth. Meanwhile, other subplots add to the texture of the story, including a cancer-stricken wife (Jennifer Ehle), and a distraught cop (John Ortiz is exceptional) who breaks the story to the media in a most disturbing manner.
Accordingly, PRIDE AND GLORY examines this litany of complex issues at a frantic pace via marvelous acting. The fate of Farrell's character is jolting, and for me, caught me completely off-guard. But sudden twists and unexpected developments are inherent in a very good tale, which PRIDE AND GLORY most certainly is.
