Pacino and DeNiro together for #31..........
What is not to like? Good solid action by Micheal Mann, my favorite two actors in Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro, the underrated work of Val Kilmer again as well as a supporting cast of Jon Voight, Tom Sizemore, Diane Venora, Amy Brenneman, Ashley Judd, Natalie Portman and Ted Levine...it all spells success to me. Even though they reportedly did not shoot a single scene together- it is the two leads that make this movie worthwhile. Pacino plays the determined cop perfectly and DeNiro is equally good as the crook looking to outsmart everyone for his next score. This movie also has the best gun battle scene ever when DeNiro's crew come out of the bank together only to find Pacino and co. waiting for them. Brilliantly directed and full of fun it is one of my favorites which is why it ranks at #31.
