An accountant is introduced to a mysterious sex club known as The List by his lawyer friend. But in this new world, he soon becomes the prime suspect in a woman's disappearance and a multi-million dollar heist.
Turk and Rooster, two aging NYPD detectives who have been longtime partners are faced with a serial killer who is murdering sociopathic criminals. They both have personal issues, and when they start working with a younger team, Perez and Riley, tensions between the pairs of partners is inevitable, especially since Turk is now living with Perez's ex-girlfriend, also a homicide detective.

The initial cut of Righteous Kill ran for two hours, but after a rather negative test screening, Nu Image hastily re-cut the film down to its slender 101 minutes to make it more fast-paced and action-orientated. Snippets of some of the deleted scenes can be seen in the trailer. See more »

How do you feel when You've fired your weapon?
Dirty Harry said there's nothing wrong with a little shooting, as long as the right people get shot.
And when the wrong people get shot?
It sucks... but I'd rather be in than out.

It is what you would expect from Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. They've been doing these kind of roles for the past 30 years of their acting life. Applause, but no surprise there.
The film itself was not a blast. Totally predictable plot, stereotype good cop bad cop, drug dealers, bad neighborhood were huge minus to this movie. Lack of character development made the film implausible and some parts inconvicible no matter how great the acting was. Finally, the director's abuse of dramatic music without much happening throughout the film slowly eats away your patience.
Six out of ten is what I will give, 3 from Al Pacino and 3 from Robert De Niro.
