This film's main draw was the meeting of De Niro and Pacino on screen, and it was a worthy draw. As both iconic legends are phenomenal in this film, miraciously playing off each other while not even being in the same scene, and when they are it leads to one of the most iconic scenes of either's career. However, aside from the duo Michael Mann creates a sublime heist film, with a well rounded set of characters and a great plot. Mann's brilliant direction brings this heist to reater heights, and ensures it's place among te best of the decade. Well worth a watch.
