Pride and Glory (2008)

Written By Awir Aditya on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 | 8:27 PM


Genre: Crime/Action/Drama

Starring: Collin Farrell, Edward Norton, Jon Voight, Noah Emmerich

There have been many cop corruption movies in the past. It's a good story, but it all depends on how one executes it. A father, 2 brothers and a son-in-law, have their life dedicated to the police force. A police shootout leaves 4 of their men dead. They belong all belong to Officer Francis Tierney Jr. (Emmerich) precinct. Police top brass Francis Tierney Sr. (Voight) makes his son Raymond (Norton) investigate the killings. Jimmy (Farrell) is a corrupt cop who takes money from a drug dealer Angel Tezo. Things got messy when Tezo killed his men and ran away. Ray is in for a surprise when he starts realising Jimmy's dirty dealings and falls into a moral dilemma if he should testify against his own brother or lose his own job. The movie reflects upon a situation that often all of us come across. Should we live up to the reputation of our work, that feeds the entire family and brings us pride, or should we save the skin of our closed one and save the humiliation that we would suffer? More excitement and thrills would have brought the movie to a different level altogether which boasts of a good star cast and a fabulous performance.

Rating: 7.3/10
