This is a perfect example of an overrated film. It is the tried and true tale of a rise of a powerful drug lord. Eventually his empire unravels and he falls in spectacular fashion. There is nothing particularly noteworthy about any of it. This is a movie a lot of people like because it's "cool to like Scarface." It has been ripped off countless times as well, see Blow, Wolf of Wall Street, Empire, etc...

Brilliant! One of the best mob movies ever. Almost as good as the Godfathers and GoodFellas, in my opinion. Al Pacino gives a memorable and highly underrated performance as Tony Montana. Really good performances by Michelle Pfeiffer and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio too. A classic.

Our Daily Free Stream: Brian de Palma - Scarface. Zum Geburtstag von Al Pacino! - Brian de Palmas Scarface steht und fällt mit Al Pacinos Performance: Wie er aggressiv mit den Zähnen knirscht, Kaugummi kaut, Kokain zieht und mit den Armen ruderd - einige feiern ihn dafür, anderen ist das zuviel. Aber was hätten seine Kritiker denn erwartet? Etwa Realismus? Eine Charakterstudie? Einen massvollen Auftritt? Tony Montana ist all das nicht. Er lebt nur für seinen eigenen Ruhm. Von Beginn an, da er noch in einem kubanischen Flüchtlingscamp eingesperrt ist, geht es ihm um nichts anderes, sich selbst und damit jedem anderen etwas zu beweisen. Aus Kuba geflohen besitzt er in Florida nichts: Keine Waffen, kein Geld. Nichts ausser seinem Mut. Er wirkt gefährlich und erfinderisch und dieser Bluff ist...

A Detriment to the Crime Thriller

This will probably be my most disagreed with review on the site, but I don't care. This movie was horrible. I couldn't stand it. Truly can't believe the attention this movie got. Al Pacino was horrible in this movie. I think everybody involved in the movie got to far into the roles by blowing so much coke and producing this garbage....... with that said I will tell you why I hate it.

This movie is comical at best. All characters are caricature-like, I felt like this was a parody movie on gangster movies. Al Pacino ate the entire set with the most over-acting I have ever seen performed on such a highly acclaimed movie. The movie has no brain or depth. It is 3-hours of cliche' scenes and quotes for wanna-be thugs to quote and idolize. The final scene is not good. It is not. I felt like I...

"Scarface" by Yojimbo

Some films sum up the time in which they were made perfectly, often regardless of their quality. Brando's The Wild One is one, Easy Rider is another. Brian De Palma's Scarface is the epitome of the 80s; a tale of the single-minded and ruthless pursuit of wealth and possessions leading to emptiness and ultimate self-destruction in a sea of tacky excess, all set to a truly HORRENDOUS soundtrack. And by the same measure, of course, it is also very dated. It's easy to see why Pacino's Tony Montana became such an icon, but it truly is a one man show; the direction is clumsy and unsophisticated and the peripheral characters and their relationships secondary and superficial at best. But Pacino really is something to behold. Like the previously mentioned films, it's certainly worth seeing once (l...

Yeah I saw that when I saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes. That would be bad ass to see it in the theater again.

Scarface is back in theaters nationwide for one-night only on August 31! The film is digitally resorted and includes a mini featurette that will include interviews with popular filmmakers and talent on how this cult classic has influenced society and filmmaking through the years.
