~Last Movie I Watched- RIGHTEOUSKILL~

3 of 5 stars

This was okay. I know they were trying to recapture the magic of HEAT but somehow this just didn't quite grab me. I will admit that I didn't predict the twist at the end (which was pretty cool and cleverly disquised) however I think these two screen legends were just too old for their roles. We needed 40 yr old cops not 60+ year olds (As police/detectives they should have/would have been retired). Al Pacino did stand out for me and HEAT is still a great movie.

Official IMDB synopsis: 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.
