The world is yours...
After getting a green card in exchange for assassinating a Cuban government official, Tony Montana stakes a claim on the drug trade in Miami. Viciously murdering anyone who stands in his way, Tony eventually becomes the biggest drug lord in the state, controlling nearly all the cocaine that comes through Miami. But increased pressure from the police, wars with Colombian drug cartels and his own drug-fueled paranoia serve to fuel the flames of his eventual downfall.
Two powerhouses Brian DePalma and Oliver Stone made history when they created the ultimate iconic film legend in the form of Tony Montana (Al Pacino)!
The rise and fall of Tony Montana is the stuff of legends! Larger than life figure whose the epitome of all things machismo! One of the most memorable, most quoted and most emulated figures of cinema history!
Highly recommended to those whom appreciate the Gangster/Mobster genre!
Written by Oliver Stone, directed by Brian De Palma & starring Al Pacino in the most vicious role of his career, Scarface is widely considered as a defining classic of its genre & also works as one fascinating character study but what single-handedly elevates this crime drama to a certain level of greatness is Pacino's unforgettable rendition of his character, Tony Montana.
A remake of the 1932 film of the same name, Scarface tells the story of Tony Montana; a Cuban immigrant who arrives in 1980s America with nothing but then rapidly rises to become a powerful drug lord. Extremely protective of his younger sister, disowned by his mother & driven by his greed for more power, the plot covers his journey to…
You've heard the saying "The face that launched a thousand ships"?
Well this is the movie that launched the small time weed-dealing careers of thousands of highschool gangsters with scarface posters on their bedroom walls in their parent's houses.
Brian De Palma's Scarface is unquestionably one of the great gangster epics, mainly because of its incredible vibrancy and hyper realism in regards to both the style and the main character tapestry. The feeling of the film is simply suffocating, clashing sound and image in a concussive fashion that bears a shocking resemblance to a train-wreck. In a good way of course. Yet, under all the neon and the constant blaring of a wonderful Giorgio Moroder soundtrack is a character study loaded with depth and crystal-clear focus.
De Palma's direction in particular is amazingly concise. In the infamous "hotel-room sequence", the tension is slowly cranked up to 11, and it works as a result of De Palma's tightly wound timing.…
Scarface over the last thirty years has attained cult status as a crime classic. Directed by Brian De Palma with a blood-soaked screenplay courtesy of Oliver Stone, Scarface is not for the fainthearted. Featuring a tour de force of maniacal menace from Al Pacino this doesn't paint Cubans in a very flattering light and copped flak from ex-pats living in the US. for its portrayal of their countrymen. Drug-fueled and violent, the birth of Tony Montana and Pacino's second most iconic character is sensational.
It's 1980 and Cuban refugee Tony Montana is prepared to do anything to rise through the criminal ranks and make a name for himself. Cue chainsaws, machine guns, and copious amounts of cocaine that turn little…
Oliver Stone and Brian De Palma came together to make what is now considered a classic by many of the gangster genre, combining Oliver Stone's somewhat B-movie script with endlessly quotable dialogue with De Palma's elegant and fast paced directing.
It all starts with a mini-documentary of the Mariel boatlift accompanied by an amazing deep soundtrack and one of the cuban refugees is Tony Montana (Al Pacino) being interrogated and making jokes the whole time, he's a ballsy guy and he's ambitious. He only cares for his best friend Manny (Steven Bauer), with whom he shares his ambitions, and his sister, Gina (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), apart from that he doesn't feel for anyone else and will stop at nothing to…
One of the best action movies that I've seen, the last scene was epic!
An undeniable cinematic landmark and cultural touchstone, but it’s probably not the great movie I used to think it was.
The best gangster film ever!
it's impossible to hate this movie. it's an incredible representation of the rise and fall of a drug lord. great filming & directing, amazing acting, and a superb story. it does drag on a bit at times but that doesn't detract from the final product. there's a reason this is a classic.
it's over the top, but it's miami so it's real
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Scarface... is not a fun movie. Any gangster wannabe who fashions himself as Tony Montana is fooling himself. But as flawed as he is, Tony is a fairly relatable guy. He's hot-headed, egoistical, and worst of all, he's honest. Honesty doesn't make for a good trait in the mafia business, as Pacino's counterpart in The Godfather will tell you in the third movie, "Never let anyone know what you are thinking." Maybe Don Corleone's watched Scarface back in '83 and learned not to end up like him- oh never mind, he had a worse outcome, dying alone surrounded by nobody instead of going out in a blaze of glory. :P
Tony is basically like a rock star in the mafia…
Scarface is a very cool gangster film. It has memorable lines and Al Pacino is great but some parts are slow and dull.
É um clássico. Com grandes momentos. Atuação incrível.
Mas envelheceu mal. Os cortes, a música, os closes. Parece tudo meio desconexo da força dos personagens e da trajetória do Montana.
Stylish direction, memorable character and performance by Al Pacino. Everything else? Meh.
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
