I ask myself this every so often, usually when I rewatch Godfather I & II and debate over which one I prefer at the time and then naturally the secondary question pops up.

Over a full career, I'd say Bobby - but Pacino in the 70s was :hillwhoa:

And while I'm here, Imma say it, Untouchables was mediocre .

pacino was better in GF II. . .in fact id argue thats one of the best performances ever. But then again, Michael Corleone was just a more interesting character than young Vito

Deniro was better in Heat

Not the Mike from part II, the transformation from good kid to mob boss was amazing he never topped his role in the first Godfather, I would put Dog Day Afternoon ahead of GF II too personally.

I would rank it like this

Mike in I > Vito in I and II (Brando/DeNiro) > Mike in II. I think the Scarface hype here is the reason it is being debated so much, and the dude who said critics and others in the business choose Pacino please back it up, majority of them prefer DeNiro from Oscars to critics.
Please tell me you are not serious???

I don't know what movie you are watching, but Pacino topped his own performance in GF I with GF II. His transformation in the 1st movie was documented above by you, but in the 2nd movie, he went from a mob boss to a ruthless monster and having everyone in his life fear and/or leave him, while it was literally the complete opposite with Vito in both movies. That transformation is arguably one of best performances EVER.

It's not the Scarface "hype" is the reason Pacino vs DeNiro is being debated, it's the fact that both of their catalogs are parallel and equally have a case on being mentioned as the greatest actor in the modern era.

Mike in GFII > Vito in both GF > Mike in GFI is the way it should be

DeNiro easily. The only actor that MIGHT be better than DeNiro is Jack Nicholson
