Flixter Deletion no. _, Robert De Niro's last good movie of the new millenium, look at the resume. Showtime, Analyze That, Shark Tale, City by The Sea, Hide and Seek, Godsend, Everybody's Fine, The Good Shepherd, Meet The Fockers, Stardust, Righteous Kill, 15 Minutes, and The Score. The Score wasn't bad but it wasn't great. De Niro fell hard.
