Pride and Glory

This is a film that looks great on paper. Cop movie, featuring some great actors (Voight, Norton and Farrell). Unfortunately, it's a dull, seen-it-all-before, corrupt cop movie that just doesn't cut it. Recent television series such as The Wire have truly upped the ante when it comes to cop-based entertainment, and Pride and Glory should have paid some attention to their success.

The climax is gawkish and clich├ęd and leaves you wondering what the hell they were thinking. Combine this with "gritty" cinematography (in other words, dark and/or grainy) and the product is a film that I damn near fell asleep in.
