Pacino + Acting = Legend

by Jeff on 4/4/2007

This legendary acting icon takes on an aggressive character with skewed morals and ideals, but with ambition and conviction. Pacino's acting is better than his accent, but the direction and ensemble work well together to give a brutal account of one man's rise to power, wealth and glory, only to watch it all wash away.

Review This quite simply is both Al Pacino and Brian De Palma's finest hour. It is a gripping tale of a cuban immigrant, Tony Montana (Played by a career best Al Pacino) who kills a cuban political refugee while in an LA camp for cuban immigrants...Criticizing this movie is impossible, because Stone and DePalma pretty much dare people to criticize it. It's all so desperately over the top that it goes beyond scorn or derision - Scarface knows that it's all silly. It's in on the joke. It's an immensely entertaining movie, but don't watch it with your parents.

Review Scarface understands this criminal personality, with its links between laziness and ruthlessness, grandiosity and low self-esteem, pipe dreams and a chronic inability to be happy. It's also an exciting crime picture, in the tradition of the 1932 movie. And, like the Godfather movies, it's a gallery of wonderful supporting performances: Steven Bauer as a sidekick, Michelle Pfeiffer as a woman whose need for drugs leads her from one wrong lover to another, Robert Loggia as a mob boss who isn't quite vicious enough, and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, as Pacino's kid sister who wants the right to self-destruct in the manner of her own choosing.
