3.0 out of 5 stars Flawed but likeable, like Carlito, 17 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Carlito's Way [DVD] [1994] (DVD)
This film is in many ways a standard gangster melodrama. It is worth watching for the way it explores Carlito's attempts to come to terms with his past and take responsibility for his actions. There is also one very well-shot fight scene early in the movie that establishes Carlito's status as a tough guy.

Otherwise the film is forgettable. Negatives that should be highlighted are a preposterous ending, and an occasional glorification of Carlito's tendency to self-pity. There are much better hoodlum/crime films out there, some including Pacino.

I don't Know who you are and what planet your on?. We all have different tastes across the board where movies are concerned, maybe you just don't have any. I have been a movie fan over 40 years and Carlito's Way is on my top ten list of all time and my number 1 Al Pacino movie. To say the movie is a standard gangster melodrama is shocking. this also leads me to believe that your emotionally, socially, enviromentally and basically brain-dead. I know you said you have watched and listened to the movie, if you really had an understanding you would know that in the first scene in the court house Kleinfeld/lawyer alias Sean Penn Carlito had changed really and Sean Penn had become the criminal. As to the end of the movie Carlito was not coming to terms with his past, but reflecting on both past and future. Would comment further but going to my bed to catch some shut-eye. Just watch the movie again and come back with comments.
