Product Description

Crime thriller starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino as a pair of long-time New York City police detectives assigned to investigate the vigilante murder of a notorious pimp, a case which appears to have links to a murder they worked on many years before. Is it possible that a serial killer is on the loose, and that their original investigation put the wrong man behind bars? John Leguizamo and Donnie Wahlberg co-star.

2.0 out of 5 stars Righteous Kill 16 Mar 2010
This has all the makings of a good film. Pacino and De Niro in the lead roles and some pretty decent actors in the supporting roles. Unfortunately the story itself is nothing even remotely new. I'd read some reviews before watching it and they all hinted that it was obvious who the killer was within the first 5 minutes. And it is. I picked out my candidate and then basically spent the next 90 minutes waiting to see it confirmed. Sadly it was. The story is largely implausible and cliched. On the plus side all of the actors do a pretty good job with what they're given. In fact if it wasn't for the standard of the acting this really wouldn't be worth wasting more than 10 minutes on.
However, if you're looking for a murder mystery and Murder She Wrote isn't on TV, then this could make for passable entertainment for 90 minutes or so.

2.0 out of 5 stars Righteously mediocre 2 May 2010
This film is a bit of a turkey, if I'm honest. How De Niro and Pacino signed up for it I don't know, but the writing, characterisation, direction, and - above all - editing are fairly dismal. I'm not sure how much you can blame the two screen legends (both apparently running on auto-pilot throughout) for their unispiring performances, but the whole thing seemed rushed and sketchy. Director Jon Avnet commits the very basic error of telling, rather than showing, the story through lots of flashbacks. Given that the movie only weighs in at a brisk 101 minutes, it would have been vastly improved by letting the story unfold at a more natural pace, and giving it room to breathe. As it is, Righteous Kill achieves the level of no more than a stock thriller, with an incredibly obvious climax (you'll probably work out who the bad guy is within 20 minutes). A real wasted opportunity.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Sun Sets On Two Great Careers 2 Mar 2009
I felt quite sad watching this movie. It felt like the end of an era. The end of the careers of two of the best actors ever to grace our screens.

Robert De Niro plays the fittest, angriest, horniest, pension-age cop in the world. Pacino is his partner and together they are trying to catch a vigilante killer (Sounds familiar? It is and hack director Jon Avnet, responsible for Pacino's last turkey "88 Minutes," is unable to do anything with it).

There is a brief cameo from 50 Cent. Carla Gugino has the thankless task of being De Niro's love interest when he's almost old enough to be her grandfather. John Leguizamo, Benny Blanco in Pacino's "Carlito's Way", reunites with him here.

De Niro doesn't really stray too far from the persona he's created over the last three decades. Pacino, actually too old to be a cop in real life, looks haggard, bored and seems to have no energy whatsoever. He's like a spent force, not the whooping, eye-rolling guy he was in "Heat." Even stranger is the Photoshop facelift they've given both actors on the DVD cover, Pacino looks like a 12-year old boy!

"Righteous Kill" was a huge disappointment to me. I knew it wouldn't come near "Heat," but I hadn't expected a TV-movie-level effort like this one was. I will probably buy it just to complete my collection of De Niro/Pacino movies. Otherwise, buy one of their early classics like "Dog Day Afternoon," "Raging Bull," "The Godfather Trilogy," or "Heat."

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
It's a mark of just how much Al Pacino and, particularly, Robert De Niro's reputations have plummeted over the past couple of decades that news that they were teaming up for cop thriller Righteous Kill was met with disdainful assumptions it was just a lazy cashgrab that led to predictably indifferent box-office. While it's hard to see what could have appealed to the stars other than a payday, it's still one of their better recent efforts even if it does feel like a cable TV movie that never would have made it into production let alone to a theatrical release without the star power. It's a fairly predictable tale of two cops hunting a serial killer of assorted lowlives who may be one of their own, hampered by some sporadically clumsy editing trying to make it seem less sedate and a bit more down with the kids (even if half the cops, including Brian Dennehy's chief of detectives, are past mandatory retirement age) that simply breaks up the rhythm and by a couple of framing devices that use sessions with a police shrink and a video confession in a particularly obvious bit of misdirection. It's thin meat but the stars keep it watchable, De Niro unexceptional but certainly better than most of his phoned in performances of the same era and Pacino surprisingly excellent, playing down and keeping it real but still bringing some life to proceedings every time he's onscreen. A pointless timefiller, but better than the admittedly low expectations surrounding it.

Extras are limited to a couple of featurettes and an audio commentary by director Jon Avnet.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT ACTING TALENT NOT SO GOOD SCRIPT 9 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Righteous kill is a bit cliched and the script certainly could be better but with Deniro & Pacino you get great acting talent and a movie that's not as good as Ronin or heat but still well worth a watch.I got a used copy of this from zoverstocks for just 1.26 & was definately a good buy.8/10

2.0 out of 5 stars Not just me, then. 31 Dec 2012
I say this because I wondered if I was missing something - an American Cop film (one of my favourite genres) starring two of the greatest screen actors who've ever lived (Pacino and De Niro), in their only pairing since "Heat" - what could possibly go wrong?...
Well, all sorts of things. The main problem for me was a sense of emptiness - the film resembled a beautifully-wrapped and beribboned box which, once opened, proves to contain nothing. All right, the film had a reasonable plot (serial killer is knocking off bad guys and might be a cop - echoes of the vastly superior 1983 Michael Douglas film "Star Chamber"), good production values and a cracking cast (as well as Bob and Al you get Brian Dennehy - what more could you ask?). Yet it just echoed like an empty aircraft hangar.
Part of the problem is that De Niro and Pacino both seemed to be phoning in their roles - I got the feeling that both of them were bored witless by what they were doing, and were perhaps indulging in a private competition to see who could sleepwalk through it the most. Then there were the usual auxiliary elements to the main story, first seen in "Hill Street Blues" and now mostly tiresome cliches that we've all seen before - the cops who spend vast amounts of time knocking lumps off each other instead of getting on with their jobs, the slightly kinky relationship between De Niro and a female colleague, the world-weary police chief (Dennehy) trying to keep them all onside and doing their jobs before the killer strikes again, ya di ya di yada...

All in all, an almost tragic waste of everyone's time, effort and money. If you want to spend time rattling around in a big, empty, echoing box, go to the airship sheds at Cardington - don't waste your time on this.
