Righteous Kill trailer online in HD

RighteousKill.jpgWhy isn't every trailer released in HD, why are they still releasing even big name trailers in flash sizes smaller than my right nostril? Not so in the case of Righteous Kill, the film starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino who are on screen together for most of the film.

It tells the story of two cops trying to hunt down a vigilante who is killing bad guys that evade the police and the courts.

Well I have to say that it isn't the strongest trailer around, but I do like the vibe, and there's not an attempt to overly play on the big actors in the film by flashing their names across the screen and lingering shots on them, like Robert De Niro and Al Pacino...not 50 Cent - What a stupid name that is. Wouldn't you have picked something worth a little more?

Anyway, the trailer for Righteous Kill is over at Yahoo Movies [Flash:Embed:QT:480p:720p:1080p] through Collider and looks rather well put together. I like the choice of music, the concentration of the partner aspect, and not too much action.

However, I really am struggling with De Niro, I just can't relax into his voice over or his lines, they don't feel very natural, whereas Pacino's are just smooth and look effortless.

Still, I feel this is going to turn out to be very formulaic, particularly with the studio heads thinking “let's appeal to those young hip-hop kiddies out there and throw in a rapper” as the trend seems to be going nowadays. Paychecks all round?

Saying that, it does also star the gorgeous Carla Gugino, John Leguizamo, Donnie Wahlberg and the superb Brian Dennehy.
