|Did I mention the movie poster kicks ass as well?|
By far one of my most favorite movies of all time, Scarface starring Al Pacino, is an electrifying story about a fresh off the boat Cuban who becomes entangled in the criminal underworld, dealing drugs, stealing, and money laundering. Whats fascinating is the central character's increasing ego as the film progresses. For me, as a big fan of crime movies, had a long lasting effect on me as a Pacino fan. Plenty of guns, grit and glamor, the film was party the insprition for many crime films to follow. The film was also the main inspiration for the 2002 video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Also of note, a video game was also made, based on the movie.
All in all, I recommend this film to people that love violent, action crime films like myself. Trust me, you will NOT and I repeat NOT be disapointed after watching this crime epic. The film also stars Michelle Phieffer, Steven Bauer, and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. Written by Oliver Stone and directed by Brian De Palma, so YOU KNOW this is a killer flick. Check it out!
