Rank the 4 films Robert De Niro and Al Pacino appeared in together.

The Godfather Part II
Heat
Righteous Kill
The Irishman/I Heard You Paint Houses

Bonus points for anyone who can make a convincing argument for Righteous Kill not coming in last.

Heat
Righteous Kill
Godfather part 2

Havent seen the Irishman yet. I like the Godfather but always thought it was incredibly overrated especially De Niros role in it. Righteous Kill i always thought could have been better but its good for what it is and Heat i thought was amazing.

I haven't seen The Irishman, but I'm guessing it will be at the top of my list, as friends have told me it's great.

I GUESS Godfather II is second - although I'm never going to think of it as a Pacino/De Niro movie, as the two don't have any scenes together.

I'm not as big of a fan of Heat as everyone else here, but it has to be third, as I've seen Righteous Kill and it left such a strong impression that I can literally remember nothing about the story.

Re: Rank the 4 films Robert De Niro and Al Pacino appeared in together.

Heat is one of my Top 5 favorite movies ever so I donít imagine The Irishman will come in number one for me.

Without seeing The Irishman first, Iíd guess my ranking would be:

1. Heat
2. Godfather 2
3. Irishman
4. Righteous Kill

I think the best I can hope for is that my number 2 and 3 swap spots after Wednesday.

Iím still not convinced DeNiro and Pacino are in any scenes together in Heat.

Kind of joking, but really if you watch the few scenes where their characters actually appear together, Iím not sure thereís ever a point where you can see both of their faces at the same time. The coffee shop scene is shot over the shoulder.

Man, there's a full pigsty's worth of ham in that scene.

A few critics (maybe even Ebert himself?) complained about that when the movie came out...you have the two greatest actors of our generation finally sharing the screen together, and Mann doesn't let them share the screen together.

I love Heat but had that same complaint since it opened.
All over the shoulder shots and one shot later at the airport with them both in frame but from about 50 yards above both of them.
