Pride and Glory

There’s been an influx of police movies during the last few years and Pride and Glory is just another attempt at Hollywood to showcase the grim and gritty underworld. Order versus Chaos, Police versus Criminals… however nothing is ever black and white and Pride and Glory once again showcases this.

Set in New York, Pride and Glory is directed by Gavin O’Connor and features a star studded cast that includes Edward Norton, Colin Farrell and Jon Voight who truly transcend into their characters, especially the chameleon like Norton.

The story revolves around the murder of four police men during a drug bust that unfortunately doesn’t sit too well with the Chief of Manhattan Detectives, Francis Tierney, Snr (Voight). Francis convinces his son (Norton) to lead an investigation into their deaths, however as he becomes deeper involved in the mystery, he discovers that this is not an open and closed case, especially as his older brother Francis (Noah Emmerich) and his brother in-law Jimmy (Colin Farrell) know more than they should.

Although the story is engaging and time will pass without any issues, this is where the title of the movie comes into play, Pride and Glory that although is an above average movie, it suffers from the “been there, done that philosophy”. Norton is caught between two worlds in this crime thriller that is well acted, cast and set, however something just seems to be missing in order to move this story onto the next level. Ultimately, Pride and Glory is an enjoyable movie that as many before it, will eventually become forgotten in the annals of movie history.
