For those of us who have been dreaming of the day Michael Corleone and Travis Bickle would star in the same movie together, that day has finally come Righteous Kill gives Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro more than just screen credit together, as they earned for The Godfather II , and a hell of a lot more than the meager scenes they shared in Heat. Unfortunately, the script they finally opted to team up for is wanting. Little more than a by-the-book maniac-on-the-loose cop movie, it rehashes plenty of clichés to tell the story of old detectives tracking a serial killer of unpunished criminals who may also be a cop and, dun dun dun, may also be one of them (100 min.).
