    It's funny that Florida looks exactly the same now as in this film.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Me personally thinks Pacino is much better than Di Niro.
    Having heard the great guy is in town ( 1998 this was) my GF and me rushed down to try and meet him.
    That evening we arrived and there was was quite a lot of people waiting for him too which we thought wouldn't happen.
    He turns up and everybody is calling his name to sign their posters/pics etc. He starts to sign for everybody. When it comes to me…

    Na gut, den hab ich auch schon mehrmals gesehen und er lässt immer mehr nach. Etwas holprig das ganze, die Zeitsprünge kommen eigenartig, Pacino spielt den Machowichser natürlich gut und die 80er-Synthiemusik regelt anfangs, wird aber in Kitschszenen unfreiwillig komisch. Zugutehalten muss man dem Film, dass Tony echt richtig schön straight forward agiert, und keine Kompromisse eingeht. Unfreiwillige Komik auch im Finale mit dem Sonnenbrillentypen, abgesehen davon, dass das Killerkommando anscheinend gleich mal nach Florida gebeamt wurde. Naja,

    7/10 bleiben noch. Original ist besser.

    The disclaimer in the credits might be the most vulgar thing in this film. (Whoever signed off on "the American scene" should be ashamed of themselves; I'm looking at you, Oliver.)

    As for the vulgarity of the actual film, I honestly could've used more, because there are severe lulls (especially between the shower scene -- oh Brian you Hitch-loving goober, you; he doesn't quite execute the same editorial ballet that Hitchcock did, but it's still a nice [intentional?] wink --…

    A gaudy shooting spree that is entertaining but an overall disappointing remake.

    It's easy to see why this film became such an iconic one (six words: say hello to my little friend), and I must give it kudos for being able to keep my attention on the plot when there were so many distractions like:

    - the soundtrack. Wow. It is super eighties.
    - how beautiful Michelle Pfeiffer is...and how ridiculously skimpy her outfits are. In her first scene she basically goes out to dinner in a fancy nightdress.
    - the hunky…

    Improbably I'd never seen this before now. A slick mountain of excess. Don't remember Pacino wearing a scarf once, mind.

    Not so much a remake as a reinvention of Howard Hawks' 1932 classic, Brian De Palma's SCARFACE gave Al Pacino one of his greatest roles as Tony Montana, the Cuban immigrant who comes to Miami and embraces capitalism in the only way he knows how. Violent, excessive and almost 3 hours long, De Palma's movie is something of classic itself and Pacino's admittedly wildly over-the-top performance is nevertheless hugely enjoyable. He is also the only one to get his name…

    Along with Goodfellas and The Godfather trilogy, one of the most intense stories of rise and fall of a mobster. Al Pacino unleashed as never before or after.

    Can't believe I've waited this long to watch it. i was into it ever since the first moments when i heard Al Pacino being interrogated. He is such an amazing actor, I can't believe it, I was missing out so much!
