Bad cop did bad things with other bad cops. Good cop comes in and gets tangled while trying to clean up the bad cop's mess. Pride and Glory.

I can’t really go on and on about this film because there’s nothing new or improved in this tired story idea that would allow it to stand out. If the naughty words were removed it could be a poorly made TV movie on FX.

Edward Norton is one of the only reasons to bother with this film. There are a couple of good ‘thrills’ but they are not worthy of making it a big screen investment. Every time a scene would come it would be a cliche after cliche. Wait for it to come out on Netflix because it will not entertain enough to think that it was worth the admission price. Pride and Glory was long and drawn out and above all It was just bleh.
