RIGHTEOUS KILL

Cert 15

THIRTEEN years on from their superlative turns in Michael Mann's hugely successful crime thriller Heat Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are reunited to disappointingly dull effect in Righteous Kill a bland cop vs. serial killer potboiler.

The two screen legends play aging New York detectives Turk (De Niro) and Rooster (Pacino) who have been left weary, impatient and disillusioned after a lifetime of scraping the scum off the city's sordid criminal underbelly.

When a child killer walks free due to a testimony from his girlfriend Turk is disgusted and plants a gun in the killer's house. The killer ends up going to prison for a crime he didn't commit and shortly after a parade of criminals who slipped through the legal net start getting bumped off one at a time by a mysterious vigilante.

* Righteous Kill is in cinemas now.
