My husband and I both sat riveted to the screen, for the 130 minutes of raw action, that this film delivered. In fact, we were still discussing it the next day. Our conclusion is, that after seeing almost every 'good cop, bad cop' film available, this ranks among our top five. I'm really surprised at the 1 and 2 star reviews.

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.

I agree with the other review in that the story line is nothing out of the ordinary. Typical New York good cop, bad cop storyline. This is why I didn't give it four stars but I have to give a lot of credit to the actors especially Collin Farrell. He is brilliant in this movie. I have to say, he nailed his performance to the tee. So the story goes: A family of cops, the dad (Jon Voight (Francis Sr.), his two sons (Edward Norton (Ray),Noah Emmerich (Francis Jr.) and their brother in law (Collin Farrell (Jimmy). They were all after this drug dealer who killed four other cops. Ray was thrown in this wild goose chase only to find out that Jimmy was somehow involved. So Jimmy somehow framed Ray (can't spoil the movie too much), they were in this battle of Ray's words against Jimmy. The ending could've been better but overall, it is a pretty good movie. Worth watching on DVD.

I purchased this DVD before ever watching it (something I have vowed I will never do again), and I was right to doubt my choice. Since Edward Norton is my absolute favorite actor, I assumed this movie had to be good. Even if the storyline was just okay, his acting prowess can almost always make a mediocre movie much better. Sadly, such was not the case with Pride and Glory. I didn't feel bad for the guys who lost their brother. The movie just had no depth, no feeling. Plus I fell asleep watching it the first time. I decided to give it a second shot. I found myself so distracted by everything around me that I couldn't even pay attention to the screen! That's how boring it is! Save your money and check out his better flicks (all the solid classics plus The Painted Veil, The Illusionist, even Red Dragon was better than this garbage).

Excellent movie with an excellent transfer to match. The picture is a tad bit soft with a small amount of grain, but still looks excellent. I wish New Line was still doing there own thing so this movie would have featured a 7.1 track, but the True HD audio was just fine, and any more would probably have been over kill anyway. I really didn't notice a lot of surround effects, but the dialog was perfect. I reccomend it, and if I can find it for cheap down the line I definately wouldn't mind adding it to my collection.

Because of the poor reviews this movie received from critics, I wasn't expecting much, but I rented it anyway because I'm a big Edward Norton fan, and the previews looked interesting. While the corrupt cop premise is nothing new, the film is surprisingly well-made and engaging, with strong performances by Edward Norton, Colin Farrell, Noah Emmerich, and Jon Voight. My only two problems with the film are the over-the-top violence (I know there are bad cops, but are they *that* sadistic?) and the lazy ending, which is a deus ex machina of sorts. Rather than have the good guys take down the bad guys, they're ultimately brought down by a series of contrived circumstances. Even a cliche stand-off would have been better than that.

Bottom line: Despite a lack of originality and a couple other flaws, this is a well-acted cop drama.

I did really like this movie. I waited a long time for this movie to hit the theaters and come to dvd. This movie has been delayed so many times the last couple of years. The actors and the director had some issues. It's really just another good cop/bad cop new york movie, but the acting makes it a must watch. Come on, you got two of the best actors in it, Colin Farrel and Ed Norton, I recommend Pride and Glory!
