One is a cop, the other a thief. Both are demanding perfectionists; both are about to tear a city apart. Robert De Niro and Al Pacino combine their explosive talents to devastating effect in director Michael Mann’s (The Last of the Mohicans) masterly crime epic. Vincent Hanna (Pacino) is a brilliant LA cop whose obsession with his work has all but destroyed his personal life.
Investigating a brutal armed robbery leads him to a gang lead by hardened professional criminal Neil McCauley (De Niro). The heat closes in on McCauley and his crew, leading to a meeting of minds and a shattering collision from which few will survive.
