You may have seen the 1995 movie Heat, in which Al Pacino plays a cop and Robert DeNiro a robber. Apparently there was an earlier low-budget version of the movie called LA Takedown. Segments of both movies are on the Intertoobs, so you can watch and compare.
Here is a major scene from the movie in which predator and prey take a timeout in a coffee shop. I think one of the living legends acquits himself very well versus his doppleganger in the earlier film, the other one not so much.
Have a look and see what you think.
LA takedown version: (If you only see a bunch of HTML below, click the headline above to go to my blog)
PS The part where they both say they don't know how to do anything else is very...resonant, to me anyway.
