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.

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...

Scarface (1983)

One of the greatest gangster movies ever made! Brian De Palma's brutal but epic masterpiece. This is the type of film that keeps Hollywood alive because of its timelessness.

Al Pacino is in top form as a Cuban refugee in this dark, socially-challenging take on the old "rags-to-riches" stories that epitomize American capitalism. The American dream is everyone's secret fantasy and Al takes it to the max portraying the self-obsessed, arrogant anti-hero Tony Montana who gets in the business with his right hand man and best buddy, Manny (Steven Bauer). From the opening shots of Castro's eviction of 250,000 unwanted Cubans to its climactic ending, "Scarface" portrays a roller coaster ride through Miami's cocaine world, and a thrilling look as Tony becomes one of the country's most wealthies...

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.
