Salon - Mary Elizabeth Williams
Despite how easy it would be to write off Righteous Kill as one sorry excuse for lazy filmmaking, there is still something utterly mesmerizing in the palpable chemistry between the two leading men.
The Hollywood Reporter - Luke Sader
An ordinary cop picture boosted by two charismatic superstars but hindered by its dearth of surprises.
Philadelphia Inquirer - Carrie Rickey
A twisty, turny and ultimately silly thriller from "Inside Man's" Russell Gewirtz.
San Francisco Chronicle - Peter Hartlaub
A relatively harmless movie that becomes killing-a-mockingbird sinful for what it does to its leads.
NPR - Bob Mondello
Slack, morally ambiguous, decidedly sub-Dexter serial-killer-cop story that's been cooked up for them (De Niro/Pacino).

Righteous Kill (2008)
