Summary: scarface is awesome, it's got suspense, kickass moments, funny moments, great music, and badass shootouts, and the mansion shootout is pretty much the best scene in the whole movie lol, and it's also really cool that there's clothing and posters based off this movie, and an awesome app as well as an awesome videogame too, and let me tell you, the videogame is several times better
Excerpt: The movie is great definitely a classic, on blu ray the picture could have been a little better but it is definitely the best it's ever looked so if you own the many dvd versions, this Blu ray version will for sure give the film new life! thanks!!
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: The steelbook has a really classy design. The AQ is superb, and the PQ is very solid. My only complaint is that right when tony is about to kill frank, as frank crawls towards tony, it freezes for like 2 or 3 seconds, then skips from the frozen frame, to the correct frame that appears the 2 to 3 seconds later when tony's partner shoots frank. I dont know if it's the transfer, the disc, or my players (it shows up on both).
Excerpt: I really enjoy this gangster movie. Though it may not be number one on everyone’s list, it is one of the best movies out there. The story is glamorized obviously, but Oliver Stone delivers amazing, sloppy, drug lord Shakespeare; with one hell of a memorable finale and ending. Pacino’s performance is always fun to watch and is full of pure tension.
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: Nothing more that mountains of cocaine, and never-ending violence. Scarface has absolutely no storyline. It is true that hollywood only makes movies with action, that have absolutely no meaning these days.
Excerpt: 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.
