This sprawling epic of bloodshed and excess, Brian De Palma's update of the classic 1932 crime drama by Howard Hawks, sparked controversy over its outrageous violence when released in 1983. Scarface is a wretched, fascinating car wreck of a movie, starring Al Pacino as a Cuban refugee who rises to the top of Miami's cocaine-driven underworld, only to fall hard into his own deadly trap of addiction and inevitable assassination. Scripted by Oliver Stone and running nearly three hours, it's the kind of film that can simultaneously disgust and amaze you (critic Pauline Kael wrote "this may be the only action picture that turns into an allegory of impotence"), with vivid supporting roles for Steven Bauer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, and Robert Loggia. -- Jeff Shannon,

5.0 out of 5 stars The World Is Yours 8 Mar 2005
By A Customer
Scarface is one of those rare, rare film experiences you'd be hard-pushed not to enjoy. Brain De Palma's 1983 remake of the 1930's flick had all the ingredients of a classic: a great script, a defining soundtrack and a leading actor in his all-time prime. Al Pacino's performance as Cuban gangster Tony Montana has now almost received iconic status among film fans. Few would deny that Pacino's take on cocaine-snorting Montana is not one of his career best. Scarface is seen nowadays as one of the top gangster films, maybe not in the same ilk as say The Godfather, but still a thoroughly entertaining piece of cinema. This 2 Disc Special Edition, although not loaded with features, still should be part of any respectable DVD collection out there.
For those unfamiliar with the story, Scarface follows the path of Tony Montana, a charismatic Cuban refugee, who arrives in Miami looking for the American dream. Tony's up-front and tough personality makes him go right to the top of the cocaine underworld. However, no one, as they say, stays at the top forever. There are consequences to his success, and as Tony learns, money and power can't give you everything. A special mention should go to Michelle Pfeiffer, who superbly plays Tony's love, in what was her first major film role.
The sound and picture quality was in my eyes the highlight of this DVD package. The new digital transfer was near flawless, and the comparisons between this and the old VHS are unbelievable to be honest. Hearing Pacino talk so clearly in that hilarious accent of his was a delight and the famous 'Say Hello To My Leetle Friend' ending blows you away with all the sound.
The extras shown on disc 2 are not in abundance, but what you get here is quality not quantity.

5.0 out of 5 stars People's reason's for not liking this movie... 23 Sep 2011
I'm not going to review this moive as everyone knows it's an oustanding film. I would like to just quickly comment on that the picture quality and 7.1 dts sound is stunning. It would of been nice in some night time scene's to see abit more attention to detail with grain's and dark black's. But that is very, very slight complaint. Extra's are good not oustanding but very solid.

However, this moive review is really to question the people that have discredited this movie. The people who rate this poorly state that it is over the top and too violent etc etc. But if they actually had a brain cell, they would realise that the whole point of the film, is for that very reason. Going from the music, to the fashion, to al pacino's voice, to the violence, that cocaine is like gold. The whole movie is a metaphor for the time in Miami in the 80's, time of excess.

Find it quite embarassing for people to slag of an oustanding movie, when they havent got a clue in the reasons why it's a so called 'bad movie'.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Experience! 3 Dec 2013
I'm not going to review the film as it's already well known what an epic masterpiece it is. It's influence on people is undeniable. I had seen the film many times before but seeing it on Blu Ray was the best experience. Add to that, the hours of bonus features the disc really is the best way to own Scarface! The world is yours!

5.0 out of 5 stars Say Hello To My Little Friend 19 May 2013
By Ice-Man
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I dont really agree with this triple play concept because i believe if you want something on Bluray then chances are that you will not need the DVD. However i have downloaded the digital version on to my Samung S3 and can watch the classic scenes whenever i want.
The steelbook artwork cover looks amazing

5.0 out of 5 stars A great film 1 April 2013
By Peter B
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A great film and this 3 in 1 set seems good value for money. I have previously found a digital copy of a film useful when travelling so pleased that one was included with this. Packaging also was good.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic. 25 Mar 2013
By Bugster
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Not much to say that hasn't already been said about this film. It's a classic rise and fall gangster flick. Ive always liked it and wanted a bluray copy. With regard to the triple play set my digital copy downloaded fine (march 2013) even though on the card it said code may not work after Sept 2012.
