Pride and Glory: Suffering from a bad case of those NYPD blues, Pride and Glory stars Colin Ferrell as a dirty cop and Edward Norton as a police investigator who must choose between family and honor. Jon Voight gets off some nice line readings as a police chief of the Old School, but Ferrell doesn't seem to know the difference between emotion and emoting, and Norton (like the movie) doesn't show us anything new.

RocknRolla: In director Guy Ritchie's latest, a sequel in spirit to his earlier London-gangster comedies, the convoluted plot involves brutish mobsters, a femme fatale accountant, a stolen painting and a criminal savant with a taste for the films of Merchant/Ivory. The classic Ritchie tropes are present (the herky-jerky editing, the cartoon violence), and it's best to enjoy this for what it is, a fast-paced amoral joyride that's more interested in the absurdities of violent criminality than the complications of real life.

- Josh Rosenblatt
