    This is kindof unfair for me to judge, as Hopkins has such an iconic role under his belt with Hannibal Lector. I've liked some Pacino movies- particularly "...And Justice For All"- but I don't think he has much range.

    pacino became a caricature of himself after a while but even in full caricature mode he did scent of a woman which is amazing

    hopkins is a wonderful actor, and probably a more technical actor... but voting against Michael Corleone? nah

    Hopkins every time. Pacino has some legendary roles but Hopkins is just better imo.

    Has Pacino been knighted? Didn't think so. SIR Anthony Hopkins all the way.

    I kinda think that- with a few exceptions- if a boatload of comedians can do reasonable impersonations of an actor, s/he probably has limited range.
