  Detectives Turk (Robert De Niro) and Rooster (Al Pacino) are two veteran cops searching for a man who dubs himself 'The Poetry Killer.'  So far he has murdered tenindividuals, and the count continues to grow.  His victims are men and women who have been acquitted of crimes such as rape or murder, but in all likelihood were guilty.

Corelli (Carla Gugino), Riley (Wahlberg),and Perez (Leguizamo) are younger detectives who work alongside Turk and Rooster.  When Corelli and Perez are ambushed one evening, they begin to suspect that Turk is involved.  The truth proves to me more complicated, however.

Righteous Kill was a commercial success, earning $76 million internationally by the end of its theatrical run.
