Righteous Kill (2008) - expectations?

Righteous Kill (2008)
Robert De Niro and Al Pacino
Director Jon Avnet

Tagline: Most people respect the badge. Everybody respects the gun.

Plot: Two veteran New York City detectives (De Niro and Pacino) work to identify the possible connection between a recent murder and a case they believe they solved years ago; is there a serial killer on the loose, and did they perhaps put the wrong person behind bars?

What to expect???

I am actually really really concerned about this movie. I want to think that after all this time a movie could be made for these two giants that will stand the test of time, but after seeing that 50 Cent has a role in the film, I am more concerned than anything.

Heat was a great movie, but Pacino and De Niro had separate roles and never shared a single second of time acting together. This movie relies on their characters spending lots of time together on screen.

Anyway, it opens tomorrow night and I hope to see it this week sometime, but that will depend a lot of the movie schedules in this part of the country...
