Righteous Kill (2008)
Two veteran New York City detectives work to identify the possible connection between a recent murder and a case they believe they solved years ago; is there a serial killer on the loose, and did they perhaps put the wrong person behind bars?
At once groaningly predictable and needlessly convoluted.
It s not that the crime thriller Righteous Kill is spectacularly awful. It s just thoroughly mediocre - a standard police procedural, a long episode of Law & Order, unremarkable but for the pairing of Robert De Niro and Al Pacino.
Righteous Kill, a.k.a. The Al and Bob Show, is a cop flick with all the drama of Law and Order: AARP.
Everybody involved has earned a more righteous, movie and righteous director, than this.
