Pride and Glory

Tonight, Jas and I watched Pride and Glory with Edward Norton and Colin Farrell. Wow, it was a really interesting movie and throughout the movie, I wasn't sure how they were going to end it. I have mixed feelings about this movie due to how the story played out, at some points it was a bit confusing. But I did really enjoy watching Edward Norton and Colin Farrell on screen, I think both are very talented actors and are amazing at what they do. In the end, I am not sure if I agree with the way the movie ended and I am not sure if I would recommend you to watch it in the theatre, maybe wait for it to come out on dvd.

Movie Details:
Four New York City cops are dead, killed in an ambush that has the entire police department on alert and on edge. With a cop killer on the loose and so much riding on the case, Chief of Manhattan Detectives Francis Tierney, Sr. asks his son, Detective Ray Tierney, to lead the investigation. Reluctantly Ray takes over the case knowing the cops who were lost had served under his brother, Francis Tierney, Jr., and alongside his brother-in-law, Jimmy Egan. On the surface, it looked like a routine drug bust gone terribly, tragically wrong. But as Ray delves deeper into the case, he realizes someone had to have tipped off the drug dealers that the cops were coming. Someone on the inside. Worse, the evidence starts to point in an unthinkable direction: to his own brother and brother-in-law. As the questions mount, the case forces the family to choose between their loyalties to one another and their loyalties to the department.
