De niro'. Better range in his acting.
Exactly. Pacino pretty much always plays the same character most of the time.

You just spitting a list off the top of your head? If youre gonna do a list like that at least IMDB it you missed so many classics especially on Pacino's side. Dogg Day Afternoon? Serpico? Scent of a Woman?

De Niro >>>
I really don't know how u can say Deniro out acted Pacino in this particular scene.. Deniro is a beast in his own right but i think Pacino acted better in this particular scene..... not by much though... they both did amazingly.....

De Niro in Raging Bull, Taxi Driver and Godfather II > Pacino in Godfather I & II, Serpico and Donnie Brasco. Don't even refer to Scarface; that film is so overrated. No references to Jimmy Conway in Goodfellas either, please, that was Joe Pesci's show.

True, but De Niro's performance in Taxi Driver is so left field. I don't think Al Pacino would have ever attempted to portray a character like Travis Bickle on screen.

EDIT: Yoooo, I forgot Dog Day Afternoon. Pacino and John Cazale (God bless his soul, R.I.P.) had so much chemistry in that movie.

*pulls back his emotions* I can watch that performance over and over without ever getting bored.

A poignant performance by Pacino (peep the alliteration ), but nonetheless, I will contend that De Niro has greater range (and has shown us this by taking on more eccentric roles). This isn't to say Pacino is a lesser actor; I just think De Niro has been more daring and doesn't play it as safe. Pacino loves to stay in his comfort zone. One thing I will say, though, is that Pacino has more emotional depth in his acting. He can draw an audience in.

DeNiro and its not really close, Nicholson and Brando are also ahead of Pacino for my top 3. Pacino is awesome but his career is nothing special after the AMAZING 70s run (GF I & II, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, Glengarry Glen Ross). DeNiro on the other hand had Raging Bull, Once Upon A Time, Goodfellas, Brazil, King of Comedy, Untouchables...its really looking like a landslide when you acknowledge he out acted Pacino in GF II, and had great roles in Mean Streets, and Deer Hunter.

The nail in the coffin is Taxi Driver, though Pacino in the GF I is right behind it imo.



but this is where i am gonna hit you with a curve ball..... "Scarface" has unlimited replay value like a mofo.... and it can overshadow a lot of DeNero's films.. am i wrong???? and did we just forget about "The Devil's Advocate"?????
