      One time movie


      For the first time since "Heat" Pacino and De Niro pair up in a movie and all we could get is a rather mediocre cop drama about two good old cops one of which goes vigelante on the bad guys. Rather simple and not so interesting plot, there was only one moment that actually deserve a note - which one of them is actually the killer. There is really nothing special about this movie, a real waste of good actors. They probably took the roles just to hang out with each onther on the set. Nowhere near "Heat"

      Not that impressed !


      I was hoping for a little bit better story line and plot. Deniro, and Pacino looked great for two veteran aging actors. To me it just wasn't one of their block buster action packed movies that I am used to seeing. Also I experienced a slight freeze in one of the scenes. I wouldn't call this a $ 20.00 movie. Not bad, but not the best considering these two fine actors.

      WORST Di Niro/Pachino film ever


      I bought it for $9.99 on blue ray..seemed like a deal, wrong I had to force myself to watch it all. buy Goodfellas or Casino if you want to see DiNiro in a good movie. I would tell anyone not to even bother renting this much less buying it.

      De Niro and Pacino, great combination!


      A very solid drama movie! Wow! De Niro and Pacino are great in this movie! The story is about a cop who is a serial killer of those who "escape" traditional justice. Great characters and alot of suspense. Well worth the time to watch it.

      Worth a rental


      I didn't even bother with the DVD extras, so I don't know what's there, but the movie didn't really impress me. With two such high caliber actors, I expected more, but the plot was thin and I saw the ending from a mile away.

      DVD Pause


      just wanting to add on to the review that says it freezes for a second, this is suppose to happen because it is a double layer disc and when it switches it freezes for a second so it is suppose to happen dont be alarmed

      Buyer Beware


      This Movie is good the acting is good but there's a brief freeze in one of the Scenes that's why I gave the movie one star because of the brief screen freeze it broke up for a second.

      one of the best movies for 08


      It starts a bit slow but after the first 15 minutes its a must see. Robert Deniro and Al Pachino earned their money on this one.
