Colin Farrell, Edward Norton, Noah Emmerich, and Jon Voight all deliver
great performances. There are many intense scenes throughout the movie,
and Norton and Farrell match them with their own intensity. Voight is
believable and realistic as the patriarch of the family of cops and the
chief, trying to keep his family in order as he thinks it should be.
Despite the inspired performances of the main characters, however, Pride and Glory falls short due to awkward pacing, pointlessly convoluted side-stories revealed in equally pointless scenes, and a general lack of focus. Pride and Glory tries to tell two or three stories at once, but fails to really punctuate any one of them, leading to a fairly emotionless climax and no discernible, unifying theme. The result is a forgettable movie and a hint of buyer's remorse; if you're a big enough fan of Ed Norton or Colin Farrell and want to see either of them put on a great performance, catch the matinée, or even still, wait a few months and rent it.
