Quotations from Righteous Kill

Righteous Kill is a mystery crime-drama film about two veteran New York City detectives as they work to solve the case of serial executions of criminals with short poems left on their bodies. The story begins by showing the police psychologists reviewing a confession by David Fisk as the "Poetry Boy" killer, but things aren't all what they seem. Directed by Jon Avnet. Starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Donnie Wahlberg, and John Leguizamo.

Righteous Kill received mostly negative reviews upon its release and saw only moderate success in theaters. Generally, the reviews mentioned how tired they were of seeing De Niro and Pacino working together. As well, the film was marked within The Times "100 Worst Films of 2008". Nonetheless, sometimes it's fun to watch a Pacino and De Niro flick and not have anything to worry about. Read on for some quotes from the film Righteous Kill.
