Fair – Pride and Glory (2008) 130 min. Police drama about corruption is a-typical with nothing new here. You’ve seen this film a hundred times; the only difference is the characters change. I found that the film, which was a little too long, tried to throw everything at you including one of the cop’s wives dying of cancer (a way of identifying itself among all other cop corruption films). There is one horrific scene involving Colin Farrell, a shakedown, and a baby. Though I admire Edward Norton as an actor, I didn’t find him overly convincing in this role. There’s a disclaimer at the end of the film enforcing the fact that this film is only fiction; well, if films continue to be made about police corruption, one has to ask themselves, “is there some truth in all this?” I hope not.
