i never get tired of watching this film
The greatest injustice in the history of Cinema: Al Pacino not getting an Oscar for Tony Montana. Legendary method acting. "Say good night to the bad guy"
You can't say much about this movie that has not been said. It's a movie you have to see, it speaks for itself. 9/10
My favorite movie. :) 10/10
besides dog day afternoon still my fav al pacino flick!
One of the most memorable classic movie I've seen.

One of my all time favourite movies

Entertaining but did not really live up to the hype
For once, I agree with the public. This film is a potential contender for my all-time favourite, I'd just need to watch it again to be sure. I saw a re-release of this at the cinema and I left it more hyped than I'd ever been. I was physically shaking. The music fit it like a glove, Pacino really shined, and the ending, though fairly cheesy, was awesome.
Let me address the ending a bit though. A man in shades (Terminator-style although this predates Terminator) walks up behind Pacino and shoots him with his shotgun and he falls into the fountain below. The man made an appearance a few minutes earlier and, at that point, I knew he was going to be the guy to kill him. Foreshadowing through cheese. Nice.
Another thing I'd say is that I saw the direction of the plot coming a mile away. I knew from pretty early on that if they were going to build him up like this, they'd have to break him down. Still, none of that detracted from the experience.
I'd take this over The Godfather anyday.
cant really say much about this film as it would of been said a million times before but i loved it and ive seen it 100s of times and its still brilliant, i can see how if your not a fan of this genre you might not like this film but i put it up there with goodfellas an godfather.
A truly terrible movie, only made worse by Al Pacino's awful and incomprehensible performance.
Either the people who have highly rated or have given this piece of junk good comments have truely got nostalgia goggles on. Camp direction, awful acting, bad extras, terrible dancing.

I looked forward to seeing this based on the reviews and how it is regarded as a classic, but now I feel I have just seen the bold and the beautiful but with guns & chainsaws.

Lost my faith in RT critics and I can't believe that Brian De Palma didn't get the award for worst director.
great machismo and impact at times, but the horrible music interfered with the action over and over again (including destroying the impact of the ending), and the arrogant guy falling from grace, does that really always need to happen?!
I can remember seeing this movie as a kid back in the 80s (which probably isn't the best thing in the world for a kid to see), but I can remember afterwards thinking that Al Pacino was Spanish for the longest time. His performance had utterly convinced me of this. But in actuality, Al Pacino was nowhere to be found on the screen...only Scarface.
The all time the american dream classic, which shows the world can be yours if you don't get greedy. Tony had charisma and the mind of business man with balls and a word the size of a bull. But his paranoia and Cocaine habits get to him. However this is my favorite movie ever and this is the role to me that sticks out when i here the name Al Pacino.
pacino and some of his best work
Yay! Its a re-telling of Macbeth set in 1980s Miami! Let's move on.
This is the opus of Pacino's career - is there any actor alive today besides Al who could take such an evil, simplistic character and develop it into a strong enough protagonist for this story? For a movie with a lot of blood, a lot of violence and a lot of sex, there is a lot of plot and subtlety to this. If any other actor played this role, it would be just another gangster movie.

But this movie shows the dark side not only of Tony Montana, but the dark side of all of us to. In a way, it's un-american, seeing as how the american dream is portrayed as a rise to greed and decadence.
A highly satisfying film, my mate used to mention this everyday back in my school days. It was him who got me to watch it the first time, and i thank him for that. The overal story along with the acting is of a very high class. its one of those movies that you just have to see. Even if its just the once.
this is pacino at his best it is amazing the 2nd best crime film #1 being reservoir dogs
