Three new looks at the upcoming Robert De Niro-Al Pacino crime movie “Righteous Kill” have surfaced online via MoviesOnline. The film stars De Niro and Pacino as cops chasing a vigilante serial killer. As I’ve said many times before, I’m pretty sure I have already guessed the film’s major plot twist, and it involves one of the main characters. Then again, I could be wrong. Or, years of watching generic crime movies about serial killers and trying to outguess plot twists have just made me brilliant. Okay, maybe not brilliant, but more in tune to what screenwriters like to do with their plot twists. Then again, I could be wrong about everything. In any case, check out the new pictures.
After 30 years as partners in the pressure cooker environment of the NYPD, highly decorated Detectives David Fisk and Thomas Cowan should be ready for retirement, but aren’t. Before they can hang up their badges, they are called in to investigate the murder of a notorious pimp, which appears to have ties to a case they solved years before. Like the original murder, the victim is a suspected criminal whose body is found accompanied by a four line poem justifying the killing.
When additional crimes take place, it becomes clear the detectives are looking for a serial killer, one who targets criminals that have fallen through the cracks of the judicial system. His mission is to do what the cops can’t do on their own—take the culprits off the streets for good. The similarities between the recent killings and their earlier case raise a nagging question: Did they put the wrong man behind bars?
