DeNiro. He's probably my favorite actor period.

It is kind of like comparing JT to AB...they are both great!!!!

Slight edge to Pacino:
The concluding scene in "The Devil's Advocate" is one of the finest moments in cinematic history....

Taxi Driver is an amazing film!

They were both excellent in Heat. Both films have fantastic soundtracks. U2 has a track from Passengers on Heat, Always Forever I think.

Good thread The Wanderer.

Either one of these guys can just about turn any project into gold.

I want to point out that they have had some very solid supporting roles such as De Niro in 'Bronx Tale' and 'Sleepers'

Pacino is more sporadic, such as his outbursts in 'Scent of a woman' and 'Scarface'.

I like the name De Niro better. He is more reserved, very cunning and sharp, yet ruthless. And very funny at times, 'Analyze this'.

Pacino in 'Devil's Advocate' had to be the consummate hollywood devil in a humans skin. It dosen't get too much better than that.

The man is a GOD, I tell you, not a mere actor, that man has one of the finest acting styles ever, and there's never been a movie of his that I didn't like; De Niro has been in countless of shit films including RONIN and THE UNTOUCHABLES. Pacino's pefromance in 'SCENT OF A WOMAN' is incredible not to mention THE INSIDER, THE GODFATHER TRILOGY and SCARFACE... oh and DICK TRACY, he's frigging hilarious there.

Here's the point; the very last scenes of Godfather III, where they kill off his daughter, and he holds her in his arms, and.. when Intermezzo starts playing in the BAckground, Corleone just lies there as if his soul is aching to scream out, and he lets out a scream so prolongued it even causes his family to stop mourning for a sec, because it really looks like he's going to burst into a thousand pieces. His eyes bulge out of a pain so terrible, and his hands grip the sides of his face in fear that his body will just burst into flames, before Coppola allows us to hear his scream of pain; its a terrible terrible scream that just really moves me everytime I see the entire scene - if any other actor had screamed like Pacino, it would have been a comical scene, not the heart-breaking episode that it is. ANd it IS heart-breaking, I couldn't stop sniffing the first five times I saw it, and even now it makes me want to cry.

Pacino's finest moment. No words, no script ; just a soul in pain. He plays it marvellously.

Pacino; the one and only.

ooh major toughie
i love them both but i think De Niro is a little higher because his ability to create a character astounds me with every role.
They are the only 2 u could hold up against each other in my opinion.

I am a cowgirl of funk*

Ooh, can't pick... I agree that Pacino's later work tends to be too much about screaming sometimes, but his acting in Godfather films is just exquisite. But I still can't choose,
