but if i HAD to pick it would be Pacino. Definately.

i dunno......whoever said hes more sacred because he doesnt do as many films is spot on.

Insomnia(just out over here) is amazing, hes GREAT in it, as is Robin Williams.

Pacino=

Ps i INTENSELY DISLIKE MARLON BRANDO. I really really dont like him. at all.

Both brilliant actors But without a doubt, for the number of times just a perfectly placed pause, just a slight change of expression has made me think, master of his craft...

Robert de Niro

Pacino for me- 'hooo ha!!!'


he was mesmerising in both of Mann's most recent films- Heat and The Insider and for just those two performances he surpasses De Niro for me

PACINO!
PACINO!
PACINO!

I do admire De Niro, and it is true that he's done a lot more than Pacino lately, but as most of his recent films have been awful then it doesn't really matter. Its quality, not quantity. Pacino doesn't do as much out of choice. De Niro think himself to be funny, so hence the comedic heatwave, but I despised Meet the Parents and I hated Showtime.

The Godfather Trilogy (Pacino's the one true constant in all movies), Serpico, Scarface, Dog Day Afternoon, Carlito's Way, Scent of a Woman, Devil's Advocate, ...And Justice For All, Donnie Brasco, Heat and just recently... Insomnia. This is a great list of movies he's got here. Insomnia knocks anything De Niro has done recently right out of the water.

Nah. I like Pacino best. The man has style and heart.

A reference, no doubt, to 15 Minutes (good, but not great) and Showtime.

In the SAME span, De Niro also starred in The Score, a damn fine movie in its genre.

Either way, I doubt De Niro's become a "SELL OUT."

BOTH men have had, erm, instances of bad acting / poor film choices. While De Niro was in Rocky & Bullwinkle, Pacino was in Dick Tracy - doing a VERY bad exaggeration of Michael Corleone.

(Speaking of, can anyone tell ANY difference in Pacino's overacting in Dick Tracy and his acting in Godfather III? And one can REALLY enjoy The Devil's Advocate, but I still think Pacino only has moments of brilliance in that movie, nearly ruined by the waaaaaay over-the-top climax.)

But BOTH have given some of film's finest performances EVER.

If you like one of the other, fine: but there's no need to bash the other just to build up the one you like.

Everybody talks about Pacino's performance in 'Dick Tracy' as his worst hour, and compare it to De Niro's horrific Rocky and Bullwinkle... but De Niro wasn't nominated an oscar for his performance in that movie. Pacino was.

Not that the Oscars are always right, but I don't think it does Pacino justice to call it a 'low point' in his career.

I have to say Pacino, I love him to death, and Frankie and Johnny is my favorite movie of all time.

De Niro has always been my all time favorite. He's good in comedys as well as dramas. I could watch Midnight Run a hundred times and still laugh just as much. I don't think Pacino has that ability altough he is No. 2 on my list of all time favorite actors.

I love them both but if I have to choose, I'll go with DeNiro. Pacino has a tendency to overact sometimes (Godfather 3, Devil's Advocate). And yeah, DeNiro's made some crap movies, but who hasn't in the course of such a long career?

FAVE DENIRO PERFORMANCES
Godfather II
Raging Bull
Midnight Run
Awakenings

FAVE PACINO PERFORMANCES
Godfather I & II
Dog Day Afternoon
Donnie Brasco
