Robert De Niro Or Al Pacino. Who Is Better?

Lets' compare these two great actors.

Taxi Driver

Godfather 2

Raging Bull

Once upon a time in America.

Analyze this.

Good fellas.

vs

Scarface.

Dog day afternoon.

Insomnia.

Carlito's way.

Scent of a woman.

Heat.

I think Robert De Niro is a better actor,he is more versatile and his characters are stronger.

Truth is de niro can play the roles played by pacino but i cant see how pacino will fit in SHOWTIME alongside eddie murphy or MEET THE PARENTS alongside ben stiller that was so good it had a sequel. De niro is better even though i prefer Pacino cos he has given me more classic moments.

De Niro is more of an all-rounda. He's been in action movies, thrillers, comedies and one or two horror movies as well.

If we had to cast our votes based on the genres of movies they've been in then De Niro wins hands down.

On the other hand Al Pacino cannot be over looked.

His performance in 'Scarface' kicks any of De Niro's movies.

Robert de Niro has made more movies, won more awards. Can anyone remember his performance in Raging Bull? You also need to read Mario Puzo's Godfather and note how he describes the young Vito Corleone to really appreciate his performance in Godfather 2. He played that role perfectly.

In HEAT, he was clearly the better actor. His versatility also shows in ANALYZE THIS and MEET THE PARENTS.

@ Sauron,

Their meeting and conversation in HEAT is a classic on its own.

Robert De Niro

2 Oscar

Al Pacino

No Oscar

In fact De Niro has had more blockbuster movies, commands more money, has gone from the Hero to Villian, from thriller to comedy, Al Pacino is not even in the same class, Al Pacino is in the same class as the morgan Freeman, Anthony Hopkin or gene hackman level, when you talk about De Niro, then you think of Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood, Marlon Brando etc.

I don't think there's any movie that can match the action on HEAT when those robbers came out of the bank.

That is the best cinematography in the history of Hollywood.

It was as real as crazy. . . .

AL PACINO by a thousand miles. Robert de Niro should beat Travolta first before challenging Pacino.
