Ludicrous police drama involving longtime partner cops (Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino) who, amid growing suspicion that the killer may be someone within the force, are on the trail of a serial killer who's bumping off felons who have eluded just punishment. Fans of the charismatic stars may welcome this chance to see them working in tandem, and they are both in characteristic form, but Jon Avnet's flashy but muddled direction, the wildly implausible plot, uninspired dialogue, intentionally choppy editing, and an easy-to-guess denouement are serious detriments. Much rough language and crude talk, some profanity, moderately strong violence and sexual content, vigilante justice, a reference to a pedophile priest and brief drug use. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L—limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R—restricted; under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
