Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Dave Roth
Updating a classic is a risky, often thankless task. But for director Brian DePalma, re-making the Howard Hawks's gangster masterpiece Scarface proved to be an inspired decision. For without taking anything away from the 1932 version, DePalma created one of the most influential and impressively decadent gangster films ever made. Scarface details the rise and fall of Cuban émigré Tony Montana, a Miami gangster whose pursuit of the American Dream is a ruthless reverie of cocaine and slaughter. DePalma ratchets up the tension in each scene to maximum levels, delivering tragic betrayals and ferocious explosions of violence -- most notably with chainsaws. Al Pacino's performance as Montana remains among his best and boldest, and there are also strong supporting turns by Robert Loggia and a young Michelle Pfeiffer. The film plays like a long cocaine rush, as Tony becomes rich from selling the narcotic, then addicted to it, and finally lost in a murderous paranoid frenzy from it. An intense and sometimes unpleasant experience, Scarface is also a work of consummate skill and intelligence.

This movie is the real deal. Scarface is sooo good that I walked out the theater, with my date, at intermission thinking this is the best movie I have ever seen. I thought it was over(I KID YOU NOT). I Can't wait until sept 30th for the DVD. The world is yours.....

I can remember the first time that i saw this movie. I knew it was gonna be the best movie to ever hit the theaters. I think that Tony Montana is the best movie role that Al Pachino has ever played and it will always be that way. Gimmi that Tony Yayo.......

This set is great for any movie collection. The cards are pretty cool and the old version isn't for me so it's going to stay at the bottom of the box till I get bored and run out of things to watch. The money clip was novel as well. The only problem I had with this was the 'origins of hip hop' garbage that's in the second disk. Yeah I listen to hip hop sometimes, but I could care less what influence scarface had on p diddy or his fellow rap friends. The deleted scenes weren't anything to write home about either. At the end of the day it's all about the movie and this movie is one of my all time favorites. It has everything.. Power, money and betrail. I recomend this box set for the collector, but if you just like the movie, just get the dvd. Don't worry the extras disk is in the regular, cheaper dvd.

Scarface(1983) is a good movie, but has been blown out of proportion in the last decade or so. The movie lacks either the subtle touches of the original, and seems too cartoonish to be considered a classic. Enjoyable, but not a masterpiece.

Scarface....What can i say..it is one of those movies that keep you at the edge of your seat...Al Pacino the Greatest...Tony Montana "Gansta"....
