    KICKS ASS! I just finished watching this dvd. Great movie with a terrific ending, espcially the last 15 tension-filled MINUTES .

    I do agree that 15 Minutes was a good film, but does anyone agree with me, that more and more recently, Robert DeNiro is becoming more of a supporting actor in his films? I mean, even in movies where he is supposed to be the star (like in the Score), he is getting outperformned by younger actors, like Edward Norton, Edward Burns, Cuba Gooding Jr, etc?
    I mean, I love Robert DeNiro, but it just seems like in the last 5 years, he's lost something he used to have. Maybe hes becoming too much of a burnout in too many of his movies. It all started with Jackie Brown! [​IMG]

    He's earning a PAY CHECK! The man is making big bucks right now. I think even Roger (the jackass) Ebert commented on this a few months back.
    The DVD was excellent in quality and the film was pretty good. I won't watch it again (rented it) but it was worth seeing. Deniro's final scene was a real show stopper. I wish the rest of the film had that energy and insanity.

    Im sorry but I hated the movie. Im still trying to figure out Spoiler: how this emotional attachment devoloped between the two in a matter of days that would have Edward Burn's character in tears over DeNiros death. Glad I rented it.

    I think Casino was his last big, strong role (in my opinion).
