  • Summary: Hoo-ah! Scent of a Woman is an interesting movie. It s a showcase for Al Pacino, and a reason to give him an Oscar. It throws in some life messages and themes to seem important, and gives Al some good quips to make about prep school life. The character development is on point, an it is entertaining to watch. It doesn't have much substance, but it makes up for it in comedy and themes; and the soundtrack is beautiful.

  • Summary: Charming, funny, and powerful, Scent of a Woman is a good film anchored by a legendary performance from Al Pacino. Without him, this film would be nothing extraordinary. But, with him, it is elevated significantly. Overall, the story is ok and is somewhat compelling, but every line spoken by Pacino are a mixture of emotions.

  • Summary: There is no plot whatsoever in this film. It's poorly structured, lacks consistency and the ending is very weak. Unlike most people here, I'm going to have to criticize Pacino as well for wildly overacting this time around. He is nowhere close to his best and you expect better from an actor of such calibre.

  • Summary: Beautiful film. Pacino's magnum opus. His cantankerous, wise, and somewhat sadistic character surprisingly is a likable one. He plays it to a whole new standard. The performance is a masterpiece of cinema. Loved it the whole time.

  • Excerpt: After his defining role as Michael Corleone in The Godfather Trilogy, his turn as a gangster in Scarface, acting legend Al Pacino finally got his best actor win for playing Lt. Col. Frank Slade in this now classic 1992 gem SCENT OF A WOMAN. Also featuring Chris O'Donnell and the debut of another future Oscar winner Phillip Seymore Hoffman. SCENT OF A WOMAN at it's heart is a coming of age/lessons of life story as Charlie (O'Donnell) and the Col.

  • Summary: The excessive run-time can be forgiven due to Al Pacino's masterful performance. Unfortunately, the drama is lacking and the schmaltzy ending is weak.

  • Summary: The film has a great story and fully developed characters. It also contains one of Pacino's best performances ever. A well deserved win for Best Actor. The blind colonel, is a truly memorable character. The speech he gives, in the films ending, delivers the right amount of inspiration.

  • Summary: This is one of Al Pacino's last great roles, before he became a caricature of himself. His nuanced Colonel Slate brings to life even the simplest of scenes in this powerful drama that focuses on the redemption of its two characters in vastly different ways. It is the believable relationship between Pacino and Chris O'Donnell's character that makes the film the successful emotional ride that it is.
