Anyone want some pie?
So basically: In Los Angeles, Neil McCauley runs a crew of criminals. He's the best in his field and he likes it that way. After a botched job, police detective Lt Vincent Hanna is in hot pursuit. Lt Hanna is also the best in his field, which puts strain on his third marriage.
With both Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, I was expecting a brilliant cop drama. I was sorely mistaken. This movie is much too long at almost 3 hours and it just seems to drag. I think the writer was trying to do something unique with the genre, but it didn't come across. Neither of the lead characters were interesting and the supporting characters weren't much better.
Save yourself the time, this movie isn't worth it and doesn't deserve to be on the list. There's nothing great about it.
Ziggi seal of disapproval!
