Editors Note
Note The son of a New York City police officer, Gavin O'Connor serves as director and co-screenwriter of this tale of family, loyalty, and corruption. The NYPD runs in the Tierney family's blood. Francis Tierney Sr. (Jon Voight) is the Chief of Detectives, his son Ray (Edward Norton) is a detective, and his son Francis (Noah Emmerich) is in charge of the precinct where his son-in-law, Jimmy Egan (Colin Farrell), serves. When four officers who work in Francis's house die in a drug bust, Ray, a former wunderkind who has been lying low working on missing persons cases for the past few years, is appointed to investigate. But as he starts to put the pieces together, Ray realizes that all signs indicate there are some dirty police in the city, and worse yet, he may actually be related to some of them. Faced with the toughest decision of his life, Ray has to choose between his loyalty to his family and to the department, and decide what is right.^A stellar cast supports this film, with strong performances from the four lead players and from the supporting actors who portray both criminals and police officers. Voight is the quintessential Irish-American father and cop who has risen through the ranks; he will do whatever it takes to protect his family. Norton and Emmerich play off each other well as brothers who have taken slightly different paths while dealing with their own personal heartaches. Farrell, meanwhile, convincingly plays Jimmy as a loving family man whose choices have led him to the brink of desperation. Lake Bell co-stars as Jimmy's wife and sister to Francis and Ray.
Entertainment Weekly "[A] tightly acted and emotionally bruising corrupt-cop family drama that feels like the kind of serious, slow-burn NYPD movie nobody -- not even Lumet -- makes anymore....Edward Norton is in top form..." -- Grade: B 10/31/2008 p.45
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "As GLORY's hard center, Norton pitches an angry, frayed performance brimming with outrage and strikes sparks with an on-form Farrell, who seizes his character with gusto." 12/01/2008 p.52
Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "PRIDE AND GLORY sizzles with a subversive subtext that questions blind loyalty to institutions, from the White House to Wall Street....Edward Norton is customarily excellent..." 11/30/2008 p.136
Premiere "Employing some bold cinematographic choices, including a documentary-style POV that follows some of walking-talking action from behind, O'Connor mixes up the action and keeps the film buoyant." 10/24/2008
Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "It's an eminently serviceable thriller, then, one that sketches a convincing portrait of brotherhood among New York's Finest amid moments of effective high drama..." 12/01/2008 p.82

Review The generic cop movie has become such a tedious bore that when something like The Departed comes along, it injects energy into a genre that, over time, has lost momentum to a dried-up wellspring of creativity. Even as recently as the '80s, when Dirty Harry was still patrolling his beat and the Miami Vice detectives were taking down bad guys every Friday night, the cop story could provide the adrenaline-and-testosterone cocktail that has since been ceded to other action/thriller sub-genres. Cop movies have recently fallen into a formulaic rut, with all the expected plot points lined up like dominos waiting to be knocked over. Pride and Glory, from director Gavin O'Connor, tries, at least to a degree, to escape that vortex. It wants to be different; yet, in the end, the elements that separate this police corruption film from those with similar themes and subjects are those that derail the climax and send this freight train careening out of control...For well over 90 minutes, the writing is as solid as the acting. The narrative generates sufficient tension to make us forget how familiar many of the beats are and the intelligent way in which the investigation is handled makes us wonder why more police thrillers couldn't be like this. The disappointment engendered by the ending is hard to express. There are at least three major problems. Without being specific, I can say that one has to do with an incident at a convenience store, another relates to a fist-fight, and a third employs a coincidence of staggering magnitude. The final 15 minutes are so awful that it's difficult to believe that the bulk of the film is actually decent. Some movies can survive a bad climax well enough to receive a recommendation. Pride and Glory is not among their number.

Review Police thrillers these days aspire to replicate the CSI formula on the big screen. Not Pride and Glory. It wants to be this generation's Serpico...Director Gavin O'Connor certainly understands the difference between the two. Though Glory lays out a complex yet solvable mystery, it's far more interested in loyalty and the familial bonds that exist among lifetime police officers. It also wears its adoration for the badge--and those who wear it--on its sleeve...O'Connor co-wrote the film with Joe Carnahan, the screenwriter of the similarly gritty Narc and the bullet-ridden Smokin' Aces. These men possess such intimate knowledge of "The Job" that I'd be willing to bet either or both have police officers in their immediate family...O'Connor, for his part, makes a number of intelligent decisions. He doesn't hurry his action, giving his absorbing characters room to breathe. He shoots a sullied version of New York that's organic and real, not the polished Hollywood version we too often get on screen. Credit cinematographer Declan Quinn for diving into slummy tenements and low-lit police precincts, as well as modest suburban homes which officers could afford on an NYPD salary. O'Connor makes one false step near the picture's end, and for that brief moment, Pride doesn't feel right...Because of its subject matter--noble cops investigating crooked brethren--O'Connor's Pride reminded me of The Departed, though I preferred this to Martin Scorsese's Oscar-winner. Pride isn't flashy or tricky. It doesn't fall back on incessant double-crosses and last-second betrayals to confuse its audience. When a script is as good as Carnahan's and O'Connor's, it doesn't have to.

Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly Edward Norton is in top form...Colin Farrell, also terrific...
Jeffrey Lyons, NBC-TV Intense, superbly acted and riveting.
Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter The stark drama harkens back to Sidney Lumet classics like "Serpico" and "Prince of the City"...
Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun ...overflows with a combustible blend of street sensitivity and testosterone.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone Its value is unquestionable as drama and moral provocation.
