  1. Jack Nicholson
  2. Marlon Brando
  3. Robert De Niro
  4. Paul Newman
  5. Al Pacino
  6. Robert Duvall

So the answer is De Niro.

Minus the recent"gotta get a paycheck" Meet The Fockers roles, De Niro takes it for me. I like Pacino when he plays it understated via The Godfather and Donnie Brasco as opposed to screaming over the top via Scarface. Both had title runs in the 70s. I mean, Serpico, Dog Day and The Godfather and The GodfatherPart 2; Mean Streets, The Godfather Part 2, Taxi Driver and The Deer Hunter. Tough, but overall Ill take De Niro i guess...

Great list. Nicholson is definitely my favorite actor as well.

All these "oh he did meet the fockers wtf" morons acting like comedy isn't still acting? Stop trying so hard, please.

Meet the Parents was a funny movie and a legitimate comedy, even the sequel was reasonably entertaining. There's zero shame in having been in it. It's not as if he was a major character in Pineapple Express or Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins.


Dumb hipsters takin themselves too seriously..

Excluding his first ten years I actually feel like pacino is mostly a bad actor. He just goes way over the top on everything and its kind of annoying. DeNiro even now is great sometimes. Sometimes he seems like hes just cashing in a paycheck though.

Both amazing actors. I tend to go back and forth with who I think is the best. A case can obviously be made for either but for now I'm going to say De Niro. It was awesome seeing them together in heat.

Who do you think is the better actor and which has had the better career?

I preferred Al Pacino's earlier work more, but De Niro has done better later in life. Scarface is my favorite movie that either of them have been in.

About 6 blocks away is the street where they recreated Old Little Italy in the Godfather movies.

The campaign office from Taxi Driver is now a Starbucks.

this thread is very similar to Kobe vs lebron. One has the better career, the other has the better prime.

Default Re: Al Pacino Vs Robert De Niro

Even in Scarface, there were a couple of scenes where Pacino's New York accent slips out. Both are guilty of half-assing a few roles over the course of their long careers.

But they're both two of the GOATs, no doubt about that.
