I’m not sure about you guys, but as much as I liked ‘Heat’, I felt I was ripped off. In 1995 I left the theater dissatisfied knowing that my two favorite actors barely shared any scenes together, if that. Now after much bitterness and polemic, both iconic American actors and Academy Award winners, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino reunite once again to give the audience a full taste of what they didn’t offer us 13 years ago.
Righteous Kill, directed and produced by Jon Avnet (88 Minutes, Up Close & Personal) centers around Turk (De Niro) and Rooster (Pacino), two veteran New York City detectives who are trying to identify the possible connection between a recent murder and a case they believe they solved years ago. The plot thickens with questions such as, is there a serial killer on the loose, and did they perhaps put the wrong person behind bars? We’ll see if the film is any good, I hope so!
