Two Hollywood legends, De Niro and Pacino, together, in the same movie. After playing characters in two different time periods in The Godfather 2 and therefore not sharing any screen time, the pair teamed up to play cops and robbers in Heat, but only managed to have one major 5 minute scene together. So the chance to see the two playing NYPD detectives, partners for almost 20 years, was like a dream come true.

Their performances might not seem like the best they've ever done, but that's only because they've been brilliant so many times before, and yet they can still turn on the magic this time around.

The plot concerns a serial killer who is only targeting former convicted criminals, bad people who have managed to escape harsher punishment by the law. Our two hero cops are assigned to the case, but things take a turn when all evidence points to the killer being a policeman. The script was written by Russell Gewirtz, who also wrote Inside Man, so rest assured that red herrings abound and nothing is as it seems.

So while the plot at first may seem tired and cliched, stick with it. The movie takes some interesting twists and turns, and despite De Niro and Pacino not being on their best form, their average form is still better than other actor's bests. (4 out of 5, by Carlisle Johnson)

After 30 years as partners in the pressure cooker environment of the NYPD, highly decorated Detectives David Fisk and Thomas Cowan should be ready for retirement, but aren’t. Before they can hang up their badges, they are called in to investigate the murder of a notorious pimp, which appears to have ties to a case they solved years before.

Like the original murder, the victim is a suspected criminal whose body is found accompanied by a four line poem justifying the killing. When additional crimes take place, it becomes clear the detectives are looking for a serial killer, one who targets criminals that have fallen through the cracks of the judicial system. His mission is to do what the cops can’t do on their own—take the culprits off the streets for good.

The similarities between the recent killings and their earlier case raise a nagging question: Did they put the wrong man behind bars?
