Al pacino would be my favored, but Robert De niro is still good. He can pull off comedy too. Al Pacino played scar face very well and I do not think Robert De Niro would of played him quite as good.
I'd say Al Pacino. While both are good, Pacino seems to have a little more range.
They're both great actors and legends. But I agree with David 470, Richard Craig, and Tragger. Pacino seems to have slightly more range. They both play both good guys and bad guys; but Pacino does "good" guy a little better than De Niro; and I can't imagine De Niro could have pulled off Michael Corleone or Scarface they way Al Pacino did.
I'd be interested to see how more people answer this question myself!
Pacino in his younger days, he's gotten creepy with age. DeNiro since he's gotten older, his roles have been more fitting and he has softened to become more flexible.
Robert De niro is for flexible pondering and Al Pacino is more national manhood. I suppose the right role makes for a perfect actoring role. If you'd like to see both in the same movie, how about a title like "The Day The Son Became a Surgeon".
This is probably the ultimate question when it comes to great actors. Despite the fact that both of them are my personal favorites, Al Pacino is way better than Robert De Niro.
The main reason for that according to me is that Pacino manages to make each of his roles so real that somewhere in the middle of the movie you wonder - Am I watching a movie or a real story?. This is what is the main difference between the best and the great actor.

Whom do you like the most, Robert De Niro or Daniel Day-Lewis?Both actors can make mediocre movies good. But I think Day-Lewis is more versatile. DeNiro certainly has had some challenging roles, but somehow you always know that it's Robert DeNiro...there's always a significant...
