This film makes Pacino’s name synonymous to Michael Corleone, the protagonist of this trilogy.

What can you ask for in a film that has Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Val Kilmer on it?
Nothing more specially if you were about to see an interesting plot line of hunters versus their prey.
The story runs in a group of professional robbers who were chase by the best of the local police after they had intentionally left a clue on their recent heist.
The action scenes on the movie plus the main characters’ troubled lives; surely, things will turn out quite interesting.
The classic 1932 film is retold and is starred by Al Pacino.
Scarface was released on 1983 and is co-stared by Michelle Pfeiffer and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio.
The main theme of the movie runs around frequent usage of strong language, drugs and excessive violence.
The story is about a Cuban immigrant who was determined to take over a local drug cartel, while he, on his own, was succumb to his greed.
Talking about one of the best mob films of Al Pacino, this is probably it.
Okay, Al Pacino is really great on playing as the ever great mobster but the Dog Day Afternoon is probably the most interesting film he starred in.
The plot runs around the life of this man named Sonny who robbed a bank so that he could pay his lover’s operation.
The robbery should have taken 10 minutes. 4 hours later, the bank was like a circus sideshow. 8 hours later, it was the hottest thing on live T.V. 12 hours later, it was all history. And it’s all true.
You know why such things happened in this film. Clue. Sonny was gay and he did the robbery to help his lover for a sex change operation. Boom!
Why does Al Pacino have to be in every damn good violent film?
Maybe because he was made for it.
You see, Carlito’s Way is another violent film about a Puerto Rican ex-con who promised to stay away from anything that has to do with drugs but things have gone complicated and circumstances are pushing him back to the old dirty life he had.
Surely Al Pacino does make a great mobster character and this film isn’t exceptional to that.
Okay, sit back, go grab a bucket of popcorn and watch Al Pacino’s soft side on this drama film. Al Pacino plays a retired US army.
In this movie, he might not be the tough mob the 0’s film lovers used to see but he is a character that is hard to get along with. He was this man who is medically blind and has complicated traits.
He was “baby-sitted” by preparatory school student who had trouble taking care of him. Why does this has to be one of Al Pacino’s best films? Well, this movie gave him the crown as Academy Award for Best Actor – that should say enough.
Imagine a mob film with Johnny Depp and Al Pacino plus an interesting mobster plot messed up by a
regular guy – that is what Donnie Brasco is about.
This movie is base on the life of Joseph D. Pistone, (alias Donnie Brasco) an FBI agent who infiltrated the Bonanno crime family.
Brasco was played by Depp. On this movie, Al Pacino is not the regular tough-act, high rank mobster but someone who has the lowest rank in the mafia world and has became a trusted friend of Brasco.
How about watching Al Pacino as Serpico, the honest cop who was despised by his workmates and
is threatened by his own partners – would that kind of film interests you?
Despite all the dangers in his life, he still stayed on the path he believed in hoping that one day, the truth will set free.
For the Al Pacino fanatic, seeing him as the “ethical” character was a big surprise.
Still, the action and thrill is there but you will get to see Al Pacino in a different point of view.
The movie is based on a true story of a man who decided to tell the world about the danger of the products produced by major tobacco companies.
By doing so, he is putting his life in danger. Sounds like a heroic Al Pacino film, go see yourself!
This is the courage of two human being to tell the true about tobacco industry.
