    Heat is my favourite film cos they're both in it. Legends, the pair of em.

    Pacino has the edge in my books, Scarface and Carlitos way rock.

    But then Again De Niro, Raging bull, Casino, Mean Streets.

    AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :scared2:

    I just Don't know!?!?!?!?!?

    I do think Pacino is certainly the coolest of the two and he wouldn't lower himself to a film as bad as Meet The Fockers.

    I've made me mind up, defo Pacino. :arco:

    Hmmm, very very difficult. without a doubt De Niro has made more good films then pacino (classics like heat, goodfellas, casino, meet the parents etc) but then pacino did Scarface, and no more needs to be said on that. i'd say about even but if i HAD to go with one it would be De Niro.

    Yeah but Pacino did Sense of a Woman - absolutely awful film. Never forgive him for that. TBH they're both pretty one dimensional like all good film stars, just lucky the one dimension is a bloody good one.
    DeNiro for me - Deerhunter rules

    Pacino for me, Scarface and the Godfather series beats the De Niro gangster classics.
    Both great actors though

    Pacino also did Serpico which again is another classic. As far as Scent of a Woman goes, not a classic but superb acting.

    Don't forget Devils Advocate as well. Crackin film.

    All said and done they're both at the absolute pinnacle.

    Difficult one! Went for De Niro though - never puts in a bad performance, plus I thought he was excellent in Ronin.

    can't believe pacinos gettin beaten almost 2:1, thought it would be a lot closer, it really is hard to choose between them.

    Analyse this/that are also very good Niro films. But yea his performance in Goodfellas/Casino are probably one of his best, but if we're talking about 1 single performance, then without a doubt it has to be Pacino aka TONY MONTANA!!!

    This one has nearly killed me, but in the end, when faced with being poked in they eye with a stick, I went for Al Pacino. As dramatic actors, thery are among the very finest ever, and you can't get a playing card between them. But De Niro does comedy badly, whereas Pacino knows not to go there.

    More than just a classic. Possibly the very best of its type. Just as Goodfellas was the very best of its type.

    Oh hell! I'm confused all over again.

    De Niro for me he can do serrious and he can turn his hand to comedy as easy ,Pacino is a class actor but i dont think he has the range that Di Niro has
