0.5 out of 10 Non-event
MacDara from Galway, 19 Aug 2009
A terrible, terrible film which is badly written, acted, directed, lit - crap across the board. DeNiro and Pacino are atrocious in it, it's like they're reading their lines aloud for the first time. The "twist" is ridiculously predictable. The thinking behind this must have been "we have DeNiro and Pacino, we can put them in any old crap and it'll be brilliant". Wrong. They're embarrassing themselves at this stage. You know a film is bad when the best performance comes from 50 Cent. Avoid like t

1.5 out of 10 Oh Dear Heat it isnt
Mark from Dublin, 09 Nov 2009
As a big fan of both and Heat was really looking forward to this it was really slow and at times quite pedestrian, maybe the rivalry was not there that existed in heat. Also thought that the were elements of the plot that could have been taken from Heat specifically the end.Overall not a bad movie but the casting of these giants promised so much and I felt it failed to deliver.

3 out of 10 Old Heat
Conor from Louth, 02 Jun 2009
The spark between these two guys just isn't the same. Pacino seems weary and tired. DeNiro's recent track record has tainted any performances at this stage. A relatively decent cop thriller, but the plot has a definite predictability about it.

2.5 out of 10 Bad Casting.
John from Donegal, 24 Aug 2009
2 ageing cops on the trail of a serial killer. Quite enjoyed it. The script was like many other good guy/bad guy film I've seen. I felt that De Niro and Pacino were mis-cast and their characters are clearly much younger then these 2.

After 30 years as partners in the NYPD, highly decorated Detectives David Fisk and Thomas Cowan should be ready for retirement, but aren't.
