Righteous Kill is a thriller film about two veteran New York City detectives work on a case of serial executions of criminals who escaped justice.

Turk and Rooster, two aging NYPD detectives who have been longtime partners having experienced over 30 years of constant bad guys going free, seeing the innocent's blood shed, and all the injustice in the world, they've almost lost it.

Suddenly, there are murders involving the sociopathic criminals. They are faced with a serial killer who is murdering the criminals they've arrested.

They both have personal issues, and when they start working with a younger team, Perez and Riley, tensions between the pairs of partners is inevitable, especially since Turk is now living with Perez's ex-girlfriend, also a homicide detective.

Their differences aside, they try to figure out what is going on, but when one of the cops brings up that it might be a vigilante situation, Turk and Rooster are hesitant. Maybe they're hiding some secrets of their own.

This movie is rated R for violence, pervasive language, some sexuality and brief drug use.
