The dominant mood of the film is anything but funny. It is bleak and futile: What goes up must always come down. When it comes down in Scarface, the crash is as terrifying as it is vivid and arresting.
Great movie... However the quality of the rental is terrible. You can barely hear it. My speaker is amazing & can put out a lot of noise. Sadly. Even turned up as loud as possible you have trouble hearing them. I literally had to hold the speaker to my ear. That sucked. Shame on you for not doing Scarface justice!
TOP 3 MOVIES OF ALL TIME And how dare a douche rate this movie a 1-star because he doesn't know how to work his speaker. AND THE FIRST LINE OF HIS REVIEW STATES "GREAT MOVIE!" No sir we do not give Scarface a failing grade because you do not know how to work headphones.
Influential... If you've never seen this movie, you will be out of the loop forever. Yes, there is violence, drugs and strong language. But the story warrants all of this. Scarface is unique in that, it doesn't need to rely on sex scenes and flailing gun fights to tell a great story. At the core of this movie there is real heart. This movie has continued to influence American pop culture in numerous aspects--from music, movies and even gaming.
Scarface (1983) Movie Review "Scarface" is without a doubt my all-time favorite movie. It is nothing more than an instant classic and a huge masterpiece. Al Pachino did an extremely outstanding job as Tony Montana, the quotes that Montana had were unforgettable, the story was fantastic, the ending is the best part, and most of all, it is the best gangster/drama movie I have ever seen! This movie should not get a 5 out of 5. It should get a "broke the scale" rating because of how fantastic this movie is. I totally recommend it.
Scare face This moive entries so many people to a make believed life that people would sell a few bags of drugs an acted out this movie . Fools ! Nobody looks on how the moive ends . Everybody wants to make the money but not hold the fame it come with .

Do you know what a Hasa is, Frank? Not the best gangster movie, but arguably the most important message: no matter where or what you come from, with hard work, the world is yours. Just don't be a Hasa.
A Collectible in every way Set in the early'80's,an excellent portrayal of drug smuggling,of life in the drug world at that time...glamorous yet gritty,&often graphic,covers every aspect,keeping true to form. A
HTC EVO Design 4G My favorite movie if all time! Few years ago I would literally get home and watch the movie the whole afternoon and forget about homework. I've watched this movie at least 80 times :D
One of the most influential movies of all time, the original Scarface is an exciting story of organized crime's brutal control over Chicago during the Prohibition era. Academy Award winner Paul Muni gives an electrifying performance as Tony Camonte, an ambitious criminal with a ruthless drive to be the city's top crime boss. Produced by the legendary Howard Hughes and directed by Howard Hawks, this compelling tale of ambition, betrayal and revenge is a groundbreaking masterpiece that influenced all gangster films to follow. Filmed during the "pre-code" era before censorship shaped the way movies were made, &this powerful gangster film is the most potent of the 1930s& (Leonard Maltin's Classic Movie Guide).
Francis Ford Coppola's epic masterpiece features Marlon Brando in his Oscar ®-winning role as the patriarch of the Corleone family. Director Coppola paints a chilling portrait of the Sicilian clan's rise and near fall from power in America, masterfully balancing the story between the Corleone's family life and the ugly crime business in which they are engaged. Based on Mario Puzo's best-selling novel and featuring career-making performances by Al Pacino, James Cann and Robert Duvall, this searing and brilliant film garnered ten Academy Award® nominations, and won three including Best Picture of 1972.
This brilliant companion piece to the original The Godfather continues the saga of two generations of successive power within the Corleone family. Coppola tells two stories in Part II: the roots and rise of a young Don Vito played with uncanny ability by Robert De Niro and the ascension of Michael (Al Pacino) as the new Don. Reassembling many of the talents who helped make The Godfather Coppola has produced a movie of staggering magnitude and vision and undeniably the best sequel ever made. Robert De Niro won an Oscar®; the film received six Academy Awards including Best Picture of 1974.
Academy Award winner Al Pacino and Cameron Diaz lead a stellar cast in Oscar winner Oliver Stone's hard-hitting homage to the gridiron gladiators of Any Given Sunday. Tony D'Amato (Pacino), head coach of football's two-time champion Miami Sharks, desperately tries to hold his now losing team together. With seasoned quarterback Jack "Cap" Rooney (Dennis Quaid) injured and past his prime, third-string player Willie Beamen (Jamie Foxx) powers the Sharks to a playoff spot. At odds with Beamen's renegade style and loyal to Cap, D'Amato returns the veteran to the starting lineup, a choice that rankles young, aggressive team owner Christina Pagniacci (Cameron Diaz), who views a winning squad only as a marketable commodity. Pressured and disillusioned, D'Amato must win at any cost or suffer the defeat of his career.
One of the greatest sagas in movie history continues. In this third film in the epic Corleone trilogy, Al Pacino reprises the role of powerful family leader Michael Corleone. Now in his 60's, Michael is dominated by two passions: freeing his family from crime and finding a suitable successor. That successor could be fiery Vincent (Andy Garcia)... but he may also be the spark that turns Michael's hope of business legitimacy into an inferno of mob violence. Francis Ford Coppola directs Pacino, Garcia, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, Eli Wallach, Sofia Coppola, Joe Montegna and others in this exciting, long-awaited film that masterfully explores the themes of power, tradition, revenge and love. Seven Academy Award nominations for 1990 were the result, including Best Picture.
Gangsters never refer to themselves as gangsters. They are made-men, wiseguys or Goodfellas. Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese exposes the fascinating, mysterious and violent underworld of New York's Mafia families through the life of insider Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) as he rises from smalltime thug to mobster under the guidance of Jimmy Conway (Academy Award winner Robert De Niro) in this searing, epic crime drama based on the chilling true-life best seller Wiseguy by Nicholas Pileggi.
Just as cool and topical today as when it first opened, New Jack City stars Wesley Snipes as the angel-of-death crack kingpin who holds a city in his grasp. Ice T, Judd Nelson and Mario Van Peebles (who also directs) play police officers who lay it all on the line. Chris Rock and Vanessa A. Williams co-star.
Working undercover is a job. And an attitude. A mad dog narco cop blurs the line between cop and criminal as he mentors an idealistic rookie partner during his Training Day. MPAA Rating: R 2001 Warner Bros. Pictures - U.S., Canada, Bahamas & Bermuda
Academy-Award®-winners Robert De Niro (RAGING BULL) and Al Pacino (SCENT OF A WOMAN) star as a pair of veteran New York City police detectives on the trail of a vigilante serial killer. After 30 years as partners in the pressure cooker environment of the NYPD, highly decorated Detectives David Fisk and Thomas Cowan should be ready for retirement, but aren't. Before they can hang up their badges, they are called in to investigate the murder of a notorious pimp, which appears to have ties to a case they solved years before.
Academy Award-winners Robert DeNiro ('Showtime,' 'Analyze This') and Al Pacino ('Insomnia,' 'Any Given Sunday') -- together for the first time since 'The Godfather Part II' -- head a stellar cast in this taut psychological drama about an obsessive detective and a brilliant thief whose fates are linked in the aftermath of a high-stakes securities heist.
Al Pacino is no stranger to the role of tough, determined cops, as fans of Heat, Serpico and Sea of Love will attest. But in Cruising, he plunges into an even stormier sea as a New York policeman who infiltrates the lurid S&M subculture to trap a serial killer preying on gay men. William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) directs (from his own screenplay adaptation of Gerald Walker's novel) this still-controversial, still-engrossing murder mystery that immerses audiences in a dangerous yet fascinating world. And Pacino's performance as a man whose identity and relationships are hauntingly affected by his assignment remains its magnetic centerpiece.
Terrence McNally's stage play Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune was a two-character piece, which starred Kathy Bates and F. Murray Abraham on Broadway. Garry Marshall's film version of the McNally play streamlines the title to Frankie and Johnny, expands the dramatis personae to include at least a dozen fascinating characters, and "glamorizes" the decidedly unglamorous Frankie and Johnny in the forms of Michelle Pfeiffer and Al Pacino (their first co-starring stint since Scarface). Purists carped at the changes, but overall the film is likeable enough to transcend these carps. While serving an 18-month sentence on a forgery charge, Johnny (Al Pacino) discovers the joys of cooking and classical literature. Upon his release, he is hired by gruff but good-hearted New York diner owner Nick (played by Garry Marshall "regular" Hector Elizondo). Also working for Nick is a waitress named Frankie (Michelle Pfeiffer). When Johnny expresses interest in Frankie, she keeps him at arm's length, her mistrust of men stemming from an unmentioned but obviously traumatic experience in her past. Eventually, however, Frankie and Johnny do get together, their curious relationship setting the stage for a dramatic denouement wherein both lovers bare their souls. The bulk of the original McNally play is concentrated in the film's final 20 minutes, the rest of the picture is a kaleidoscope of comic and poignant vignettes and quick-sketch character studies. Of the newly minted characters, the standout is Nathan Lane in the traditional "gay best friend/severest critic" role: he plays the character so effectively that one forgets he's essentially a cliché. As for the stars, Al Pacino is ideally cast as Johnny, but Michelle Pfeiffer, superb though she is, seems a bit ill at ease as the emotionally tattered Frankie, she totally wins the audience's hearts, however, in the film's memorable bowling-alley sequence. Smoothing over the rough spots in Frankie and Johnny is the evocative musical score by Marvin Hamlisch.
