Around here, we are all for just about anything that involves flying bullets, a foxy lady and some witty, mean-spirited dialog. What can we say, most of our staff is plagued by repressed adolescent male fantasies of grandure — we never got a chance to be a badass, so we choose to watch them on screen.
Two of the ultimate on-screen badasses have always been Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. From De Niro’s work in Taxi Driver to Pacino’s iconic title role in Scarface and beyond, these two men have always been at the forefront of what it means to be a badass with a gun. And with their upcoming film Righteous Kill, they are teaming together to play two tough NYC cops after a vicious serial killer. And in honor of that team-up, we’ve put together a very special feature: De Niro vs. Pacino: Their Ten Most Badass Performances. Have a look at that by clicking below.
