Righteous Kill (2008)



Reviews and Comments

The reteaming of Al Pacino and Robert De Niro (whose only other film together to date was the masterpiece Heat) should have been a monumental event, or at the very least disposably entertaining. What it is is one of the worst films that either star has ever done. It delivers only the virtuoso acting you'd expect from the pairing, but the simple, stupid, predictable story is not even functional, let alone satisfying. What did anyone involved with the project see in the script?
