Righteous Kill

And just when you thought you will never see 2 giants like these on the big screen, director Jon Avnet managed to get both Robert de Niro and Al Pacino in the same movie. Both academy award winners play here the rolls of 2 veteran detectives that place their jobs above everything else. In their long carrier they made many busts of “low life criminals” just to see some get away because the legal system is not one of the best. All these came to an end when one of them decided to take matters into his own hands and planted some evidence to get a criminal accused. After that a series of vigilante murders appear on the streets each kill having the same pattern, the targets are criminals, rapists, drug lords and they get a perfect shot in the head, the gun is being left there along with a poem. The 2 detectives were assigned to that case and things get hotter by the minute. Righteous Kill is defiantly a good movie to watch with more than 1 thrilling turn of events. Overall it’s a nice movie to watch and it will keep you interested until the end .
