Director Gavin O'Connor collaborates with Narc director/screenwriter Joe Carnahan on this family-focused police drama concerning an honest homicide detective (Edward Norton) assigned to investigate the precinct run by his potentially crooked older brother (Noah Emmerich). As the investigation begins to reveal some troubling facts about the precinct, it gradually becomes apparent that the policeman who is also the older brother's best friend (Colin Farrell) may be the man orchestrating many of the suspected crimes. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What it lacks in subtlety and intelligence it makes up in violence, brutishness, and hackneyed story lines. These are qualities best enjoyed at home."
‑ Jonathan F. Richards,
"Pride and Glory is full of interesting little grace notes, and the cast is excellent, yet it grows more and more frustrating. It has everything going for it except a story that doesn't send the audience out miles ahead of the plot developments."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but it can make for some awfully dull films. The line between inspiration and imitation is fine crossed repeatedly. Pride and Glory isn't the worst offender, just the latest."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"This predictable police corruption story with an A-list cast explores themes of family and honesty as two cop brothers uncover the dirt on their brother-in-law's violent activity, while senior cop Dad tries to keep things under control."
‑ Simon Weaving, Screenwize
"The actors in Pride and Glory do their best with this cliched material, but the film is so grim, ugly and miserable that it's difficult to sympathise with even the most positive characters."
‑ David Stratton, The Australian
"Bloody, violent and increasingly derivative, 'Pride and Glory' betrays its initial promise as a small-scale, 'Godfather'-esque social tapestry with crude plotting, variable acting and an all-too-guessable storyline and conclusion."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"Pride's only saving grace is Edward Norton, whose mere presence raises the level of a film several notches. But it's unclear why he lately has chosen such worn-out material."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"No button remains unpushed, no shred of scenery remains unshredded and no F-bomb remains unuttered."
‑ Matt Soergel, Florida Times-Union
"Uma pena que o filme jamais consiga escapar realmente do lugar comum, implodindo de vez em seu terrível terceiro ato."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"I thought this film was a mess."
‑ Julie Rigg, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
"It's yet another movie about familial strife in the New York City Police Department. If you think you've seen it all before, you have."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"There's nothing really wrong with Pride and Glory, apart from an excessive degree of brutality, but there's nothing terribly revelatory about it either."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Pride and Glory doesn't add anything to the generic crooked-cop procedural that we haven't seen with more verve in better movies."
‑ Sonny Bunch, Washington Times
"Hard to watch, hard to listen to and hard to follow."
‑ Jim Schembri, The Age (Australia)
"As a drama, Pride and Glory is too glum, and worse, it doesn't convince."
‑ Jarrod Walker, FILMINK (Australia)
