Pride and Glory
Ray Tierney was a very promising cop who was rising in the ranks of the NYPD until something happened and he got shot and ended up with a desk job. Ever since he’s had trouble going back onto the street but when one night a couple of men from his brother’s department get killed, his dad, Francis Sr, who’s one of the big shots at the department, asks him to take the lead on the investigation.
Ray decides to follow his dad’s advise but once he starts digging, the trail he follows leads him to things he wished he’d never found…
Sound and Vision:
The image quality is decent with plenty of detail and good contrast. We didn’t spot any compression errors nor grain. Exactly something you would expect from a recent release.
The soundtrack does its job nicely but isn’t anything special.
Pride and Glory tells the story of a family of cops where things go terribly wrong when one of them starts investigating the murders on a couple of men that are reporting to his brother.
Edward Norton does a fine job as usual but Colin Farrell disappoints a bit and towards the end things tend to become a little over-the-top and hard to believe. Still, as an average cop movie Pride and Glory is still enjoyable and those that like this type of movies will certainly want to check it out. It’s not a fantastic film but better than some of the crap we get to see at the movies these days, even if the ending is a bit of a downer.
