Bringing Robert De Niro and Al Pacino together on screen for the first time, Michael Mann's magnum opus ranks among the greatest crime films of all time. Hard-boiled ex-con Neil McCauley (De Niro) is the leader of a crew of seasoned stickup artists who operate with grim determination and military discipline. When a last-minute replacement on his team leads to a bloody triple murder during an armoured truck robbery, McCauley is targeted by veteran detective Vincent Hanna (Pacino), whose fanatic dedication both mirrors and contrasts with McCauley's ruthless professional expertise. "Top three Mann. A film that is part of the lexicon of the medium. A stark western set in a hyperreal L.A." (Guillermo del Toro).
