Four cops down: two dead, two likely. An NYPD drug bust has gone horribly wrong, and Detective Ray Tierney heads the investigating task force. He already has ties to the case. His brother was commander of the ambushed officers. His brother-in-low, a fellow officer, often partnered with them. The more Ray uncovers, the more those family ties are tested. And the more the fraternal order starts to fray.
Norton has a habit of doing big budget movies whilst preferring to push his talents in independent releases. Sadly Pride & Glory falls into the first category, as Edwards almost sleepwalks through this film with little effort required. A passable performance by Colin Farrell fails to bring any sparkle or relevance to the film, which is a bland American cop tale. Average and by the numbers, this is an insignificant tale that you’ll have seen before, and unfortunately will again in the future.

- Pride and Glory review by CP Customer
A great movie. Full of action ands ome look away scenes especially the iron and the baby scene. I found myself rooting for the good guys and booing the bad guys just like at a pantomine. Whilst the ending is brutal it is justified and probably the best solution.
A really enjoyable movie and I can even accept the bad language which is part of teh cahracters and not just for effect.
