Critic Reviews of "Righteous Kill"Chicago ReaderDecember 09, 2008
This thriller by Jon Avnet is mostly by the numbers, and its surprise ending, though effective, feels somewhat forced.At the MoviesNovember 05, 2008
Nearly everything about this film is a cliché.Boston GlobeOctober 18, 2008
Say it ain't so, Bobby and Al.Miami HeraldOctober 18, 2008
The movie, which has more than 10 credited producers, feels like one of those slick, for-the-money projects Hollywood studios cook up via graph charts and marketing surveys.ReelViewsOctober 18, 2008
There's nothing righteous to be found here.Time OutSeptember 26, 2008
They look like jobbing veteran actors picking up another payday in some routine cop filler, and Avnet's busily clueless direction offers them and the clunky writing little help. Pacino. De Niro. It's over.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsMarch 09, 2017
The stars were handed inferior material to work with and, at best, can only make this tired plot watchable.TheShiznit.co.ukOctober 14, 2012
A murky, muddled, miserable mess, Righteous Kill spends 101 minutes failing to achieve what Heat managed in just six.Washington TimesAugust 30, 2009
The worst about Righteous Kill is that there's probably a perfectly acceptable procedural thriller somewhere in the mountain of cliches and stupidity that riddle the film.Fayetteville Free WeeklyFebruary 01, 2009
Imagine this conversation: A phone call between actor Bob De Niro and director Marty Scorsese. Bobby: Hello, Marty. I've been calling and texting, but you never answer. (Silence) Bobby: I'm talking to you. Are you talkin' to me? Are you talkin' to me?Projection BoothJanuary 20, 2009
As far as bad movies go, Righteous Kill is something of a zenith.CinemaBlend.comJanuary 11, 2009
Pacino. DeNiro. Armed and dangerous. In a cop drama. In NYC. Together. Written by the writer of Inside Man. Sounds great, doesn't it? Well, what could've gone so wrong?
