Today I wanted to see some classics, so I rented “Scarface” DVD. I have seen this movie plenty of times before. I even had it on video. That was way too long ago though.
The movie is based on a pretty regular “rise and fall” story. There is this guy who “rises” from nobody to a powerful drug lord. And then he “falls” and gets killed. The film is not so average though. First of all, it tells the story in a nice way and puts some romance into perspective. Secondly, Al Pacino delivers and excellent performance.
This movie is a must see for all Pacino fans. This movie is a must see for all fans of crime movies. This movie is a must see for all “movie drug scenes” fans. This movie is a pretty much a must see for a number of other reasons.
8 out of 10.
