Righteous Kill - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

A tired, average crime thriller which just about manages to stay alive thanks to its two lead actors.

Plot Summary

Two cops who have worked together for 30 years or more and are thick pals, have to find a serial killer who is bumping off people who seem to have escaped justice.

What Worked

  • What I liked, well just seeing De Niro and Al Pacino up there together

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • The banter between the two buddies just does not work in the scenes that they have together as the dialogues are very pedestrian.
  • There is also this scene between Pacino and his boss played by Brian Dennehy which is set in a diner where talk is repeatedly drowned out by the passing of the elevated trains. It comes at an important point in the film, in the second half, and could have been a great scene as both are fine actors but it falls flat again because of the dialogues.
