    I like Al Pacino's roles better (Serpico, Tony Montana, Michael Corleone, Carlito...), . I can name a lot of them while most of DeNiros. i can only remember as "The gangster from Casino" or "The Gangster from Goodfellas" etc.

    De Niro was the better actor but Pacino managed to avoid entering JUST territory and sad mutt children.

      >the better actor
      in what ways? i mean i'll grant you that something happened to pacino in the 80s-90s and then he just became this wisecracking guy and kinda annoying, almost a caricature
      but i can't think of a single movie where de niro outacts what al pacino did in dog day afternoon or godfather

      Pacino's business manager stole millions from him. That's why he's not retired. Bob isn't retired for the other reason.

    DeNiro wishes he had Pacino's range, imagine him trying to play Pacino's part in Glengarry Glen Ross. And Pacino can be actually funny and not just a straight man. And Pacino didn't marry a goblin who bankrupted him and turned his kids into mongoloids. It's a clean sweep

    Deniro pretty much always plays the same guy from raging bull to goodfellas , pacino had a more varied career but often it didn't work like his embarrassing Cuban gangster in Scarface.

      Eh - Deniro broke out of his mold at times, like The King of Comedy, or Awakenings. My favorite movies with him are the lesser known ones, like Mad Dog and Glory, and Night In The City. He has range, but he's not a character actor, you hire him to be Deniro, not someone else. He also had a way, way, way longer stretch of hits than Pacino.
      Pacino couldn't have pulled off Awakenings. No way. Pacino is good playing Pacino, but he peaked in the 70's, with brief flashes of brilliance in the 80's and 90's, but mostly playing himself, like Deniro does, but he's hasn't really taken any chances.

    De Niro peaked early (Taxi Driver) and has been phoning it in mostly since. Pacino actually still puts an effort in, for example The Irishman. Even his small role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is pretty good. So overall I'd say Pacino has surpassed De Niro, but the greatest performance is still Bob's in Taxi Driver.

        I would argue Pacino has more range than De Niro in fact. De Niro seems to play the same guy in every movie, an aloof, stoic, matter of fact character, whether he's a criminal or a cop or a lawyer or whatever.

    Pacino is a better actor but Deniro is slightly more iconic. You can impersonate Deniro by just making his smug face and people will get it, but Pacino you would have to put on a voice and say specific lines.

            No. I can judge however I want.
            Also why not pick a movie where they both act in as a control. This way the director, movie, script, supporting actors, etc. are all the same and we can so who did better. In the case of the Irishman, it was carried by Pacino and Pesci, despite being a mediocre film itself.
            Alternatively, De Niro was better in Heat since Pacino hammed it up too much.
            I'm not gonna compare Ronin to Dog Day Afternoon.
