Pride and Glory was the intense crime drama that Righteous Kill was aiming to be. It weaved an interesting plot about a family of cops and the corruption involved in their division. The leader of the corruption being married to a sister of the family. It had everything a movie like this needs. Great acting, intense tension building scenes, and rugged dialogue. The only problem was that there are a lot of movies that have almost the same plot, and while this movie did do a pretty good job with it, past movies have done much better with the idea of corruption in the police force.
The acting was fantastic in this movie. I wouldn’t expect anything else from an actor like Edward Norton. He’s one of my favorite actors and he does justice in this type of role. Colin Farrell surprised me for once, he played a perfect dirty cop who was even more dangerous than the criminals he was supposed to be fighting. Jon Voight was good as always. It was a good movie and if you like this type of movie, go see it, but if you haven’t seen The Departed or L.A. Confidential, I would check those out first.
