Film Critic Quote of the Week

Phil Villarreal of the Daily Star on the very, very weak "Righteous Kill":

So this is what it’s all come down to for two of the greatest actors — a cop thriller with all the edge of a butter stick... The novelty of seeing De Niro and Pacino together onscreen — they were never together in “The Godfather: Part II” shared only one sequence in “Heat” — almost is worth the price of admission. But halfway through the rancid story you realize it would have been more interesting to watch a video of the men waiting in line together at the [DMV]
If a grade schooler tried to make a remake of "Serpico," it would look a lot like this movie. And yes, I know Max Fisher did exactly that in "Rushmore," but this is even worse. How little buzz does this movie have? It comes out tomorrow, and as of last night there was not a single review yet on Rotten Tomatoes.
