Robert De Niro reunites with Al Pacino this month in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, the epic and Certified Fresh new Netflix gangster flick. The two actors – who last shared the screen in Michael Mann’s Heat – have been getting plenty of Oscar buzz for the movie in which Pacino plays infamous Teamster leader Jimmy Hoffa and De Niro plays his right-hand man, Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran. If either wins big this awards season, they will be adding to an already heaving trophy shelf. But who between Pacino and De Niro is the ultimate king of the big screen? We’re looking to settle that question by looking at their Tomatometer scores, box office performance, iconic roles, and one wild card category. Did we get it right? Let us know in the comments. (Yes, we’re talking to you.)
The Irishman is currently available on Netflix.
