Scarface 1983

In the spring of 1980, the port at Mariel Harbor was opened, and thousands set sail for the United States. They came in search of the American Dream. One of them found it on the sun-washed avenues of Miami... wealth, power and passion beyond his wildest dreams. He was Tony Montana. The world will remember him by another name... Scarface.

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.

I have just received my special edition scarface blu ray box set and am very impressed. All of the contents are of a very high quality, the box contains high quality picture postcards of the main cast, Tony Montana's "green card" a Tony Motana dollor along with a booklet of the famous scenes, and, a money clip engraved with the initials T M (in the style on the back of his chair). All this and three copies of the movie, blu ray, dvd and digital, all presented in a cuban wood effect cigar box. I was lucky enough to get this on a black friday lightning deal, however, that being said in my opinion well worth the full ticket price.

Scarface is a classic movie that every adult should watch at some time and enjoy.
i wanted to watch the movie in blue ray ,i have the movie on dvd and for a film this good it is well worth buying again.
the movie has been transfered to blue ray very well ,the picture is sharp and colour ful and it is like watching a new film,if you have it on dvd.
i brought this blue ray from a well known supermarket because i just wanted the blue ray not the dvd and digital on this set .well worth buying 5 stars.

I have to say, after seeing this film all I wanted to do was watch it again! This is one of those films that you get something new from every time you watch it! This is my fav film by afar and I just want to say, if you haven't seen this film, watch it!
Pacino is outstanding (really..... Outstanding) and this is his tour de force performance! If u have watched this many years ago, I urge you to watch it again as you will see it differently! If only all films were like this!
This film screams out the corruption of gangster life by using strong language and the use of drugs.

Now for the dvd: great 2 disc dvd (I have 460+ dvds and this is one of my fav) nice artwork and great extras for an outstanding film!!!

To conclude, you can pick this film up relatively cheap on amazon and I say its a must for any dvd collection as this is a truley remarkable film! A*****

what can I say that Has not been said about scar face its a title that truly deserves the status of cult classic this film the godfather and others solidified Al Pacino as the ultimate gangster, the film oozes style, has a great story based initially of true story then the rise and fall of Scarface begins in the most fantastic visual style, the acting is good, the action is over the top, it becomes crazy up in this film watched many times and enjoy every time.
Recommend to all gangster film lovers this is stylish dramatic, action packed, full of thrills and spills and has plenty of yaho sorry cocaine from Columbia also we have one of the great bad guy performances ever well everyone's a bad guy but some have more style, and the ending goes down as the most cult ending ever seen even Rambo couldn't kill as many as Scarface does not joking. forget pulp fictions gore

Well on of Al Pacino's greatest films ever.Plenty of action in this.Great storyline.A classic.One of the best accents ever as well.This film rocks from start to finish.
This film is a great conversion from the even older version about an American involved in the Mafia.It keeps true to the old version and is even better!
The extras on this DVD are great and at moments funny.You get to see when Scarface was put on TV and all swearing had to be cancelled out (there is ALOT of swearing in Scarface)!There's also interviews and even a hip-hop section!
Briefly:This film is great and if you don't mind swearing and violence then this film is for you!If you get quezy at the sight of blood or can't stand swearing then avoid this at all costs.Still a fab film!
