In a scathing editorial, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer Patrick Goldstein, claims that shoddy movie work by Al Pachino and Robert Deniro is all about them chasing big pay days. With a upcoming movie together called Righteous Kill a flop of any kind would just drive his point home even more. Pretty good read.
Pacino has made a string of bad films lately, including the famously awful “Gigli,” “The Recruit” and “Two for the Money,” where he hams it up as an unscrupulous football oddsmaker. If anyone has made more movies for the money than Pacino, it would be De Niro, who has largely abandoned serious dramatic work for a spate of forgettable horror and crime thrillers (try sitting through “Hide and Seek” or “Godsend”) and lowbrow comedy high jinks like “Meet the Fockers” and “Analyze That.”

They’ve both made lives of portraying them—50 in real life, onstage, and onscreen, De Niro mostly onscreen—perfecting the pose and madness and especially the cold souls of men who have street mentalities, who have little to no remorse about living lives infused with violence and crime, murder and mayhem.Jackson, based on his criminal record, his rap records, and the film autobiography, Get Rich or Die Tryin’ (in which he played himself), apparently has more tangibles, as an actor, to draw from. But De Niro, who won both his Oscars for playing men who kill at will (young Vito Corleone in Godfather II and Max Cody in Cape Fear) clearly has his mysteries…for the rest of this story CLICK HERE
