A good story with tons of personal conflict among the characters. No real cliffhangers but the ending is in doubt right til the end.

A decent enough cop drama, but it's not the kind that will stick with you for very long after watching it.

I liked the grittiness of the action and the storyline was interesting. The ending seemed rushed and somewhat contrived, so everything after the convenience store heist is unsatisfying considering what came before.

As long as you don't mind a constant barrage of F-bombs and a fair amount of violence, this one is worth renting. If that sort of thing bothers you, though, I doubt that this would be on your radar anyway.

"Pride and Glory" is nothing more than a second-rate answer to the much-better movie "The Departed." Not only there were bad acting, but plenty of crying. I have nothing against crying, buy when someone breaks down ever 10-15 minutes, then we got a problem with the movie. Ed Norton is a cop who's trying to determind who killed four cops on duty, and in the process, come across a pair of bad cops. Another problem with the movie; too many characters in the movie. One character, the wife of a cop whose battling cancer, has kept the movie down. another problem is the performance of Jon Voight. He comes in makes a speech about being a cop and he goes. He just comes and goes. In one scene where a cop theatens a baby with a hot iron, that's where I give up on the movie.
