Default 'Pride and Glory' - High-Def Digest

Aaron Peck has reviewed 'Pride and Glory.' He says the movie is flat and predictable, which might have been a result of its seemingly cursed production. This Blu-ray's video and audio are both pretty mediocre. The best thing about this one seems to be the one hour behind the scenes documentary that shows the problems encountered, as well as how demanding Edward Norton was during the making of this "pet project." (Editor's Note - I have to point something out. When was the last time Edward Norton was involved in a movie that wasn't a.) Riddled with problems, and b.) Seen as one of his pet projects? It's starting to remind me of Kevin Costner and the way his control freak tendencies can sabotage so many of his projects. Keep thinking of that saying about troublesome relationships: The only constant in all of them is *you.* Annnnnnnnyway...) You can skip this one, but don't skip the review!

I have to agree with the review. I had rented this when it first came out and was left unmoved.

I saw this in theatres and thought it was alright. I found it for $11 at a used video store and decided to pick it up.

I wish the reviewer would have been a little bit more specific in the audio portion of the review when he mentions how bad the directionality is, such as pointing out certain scenes.

Sorry about that ruckus. To answer your question, most scenes are pretty bad. Especially when there is someone off-screen talking. It just seems all muddled together. Hope that helps.

I really liked it, and I defiantely think it's worth seeing and owning for the right price (I'm waiting for a Columbia House BOGO with free shipping, not paying full price for a movie that I've already seen).

I enjoyed it but the ending was lame.

I hated most of the movie but thought the last 30 minutes were pretty fantastic.

Considering the talent involved it was a very run-of-the-mill cop drama for the most part.

I agree. Overall it was good. Better than the review said.
