The great Al Pacino is back !

A little lined at the age of 65, but he is still the sovereign, the great Al Pacino. Pacino's new movie " Two for the Money" debutes today across North America. Gosh, where was I the very first day his "Scent of a Woman", "Carlito's Way", "Scarface" and loads of other great movies went on screen?

The movie also stars the beautiful Rene Russo and Matthew McConaughey. It's the story of a former college football star with a knack to predict the outcome of game. His talent is not lost on Walter Abraham (Al Pacino), the head of one of the biggest sports consulting operations in America who hires the small town ex-athlete and--in Abraham's own words--begins to build an empire around him until things go awry.

As for pacino's persformance in this move, Rogert Ebert puts it best:

In D.J. Caruso's "Two for the Money," you can see Al Pacino doing something he's done a lot lately: Having a terrific time being an actor. At 65, he's on a hot streak in one well-written role after another. In "Insomnia," "People I Know," "Angels in America" and "The Merchant of Venice," he has given performances vibrating with tension and need, and now here he comes again

Anyways, if you appreciate Al pacino's movies as much as I do, you don't wanna miss a movie that boasts the unmatched combination of New York city and its south Bronx kid "Alfredo James Pacino".
