When two actors of the calibre of DeNiro and Pacino square off, it sizzles! A well crafted, cutting-edge film about a brilliant criminal mastermind who pulls off million-dollar crimes with obsessive precision, and an equally driven flashfire LA policeman whose job it is to stop him. How far will each man go? This goes far beyond the expectations of the cops-and-criminals genre — into the realms of a masterpiece!

McCauley: 'A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."'
Neil McCauley [Robbing a bank] : "Everybody stay down! We're here for the bank's money, not your money. Your money is insured by the federal government, you're not gonna lose a dime. Think of your families, don't risk your life. Don't try and be a hero."
"The action sequences are truly riveting and intense, especially a bank robbery that dissolves into violence. The movie is three hours long, yet it maintains its pace and the audience's attention throughout."
