Year: 2008

If Al Pacino and Robert De Niro are going to be in movies together, they should choose better scripts (and directors; Jon Avnet perpetrated 88 Minutes). In this lackluster police procedural, two veteran cops, one angry and intense, the other laid-back, are trying to track down a vigilante serial killer targeting obviously guilty creeps sprung on legal technicalities. Hint: a framing device has one of these cops confessing on videotape. The only way the ludicrous Big Twist at the end will surprise you is if you have slept through the first two-thirds of the picture. This is no way to treat screen icons. Japanese title: Border.
