One fundamentally dishonest character choice launched a billion-dollar industry. But it hardly sours a film that became a garishly ghoulish, bleakly funny and compulsively watchable template for modern-criminal deconstructions of the American Dream.

By ignoring its massive, toxic, nuclear-fallout shortcomings, it finds its way to the hallowed status of camp classic.

One of the best gangster dramas ever made, driven by Pacino's haunting performance and De Palma's lightning pace.

It's a whole new spin on the immigrant story and the American Dream as an underworld nightmare and a fitting bookend to the two Godfather films.

the very definition of excess, which is perhaps why it has persisted so long as a cultural totem: Its florid pleasures can never be exhausted

Paciono gives a riveting performance in the lead in De Palma's over-the-top but engaging modern version of the classic gangster

Pacino's bravura performance dominates, making no concessions to our sensibilities. And the final shootout is a tour de force of editing.

Still a must-see for Pacino's potent and influential performance.

Scarface has become a touchstone of pop culture, one of the half dozen or so most frequently referenced films of our era.

This almost Jacobean tale of drug gangsters in 1980s Miami is rather too long for the points it makes, but is nevertheless riveting and still, after 26 years, remarkably fresh.

De Palma's film is now back on the big screen and looking better than ever.

Pacino's drug-crazed, bloodshot performance gives this gangster movie a terrifying edge.

[Pacino's] grandstanding performance is still hard to resist and symbolises the baroque excess of this shockingly violent gangster classic.

Viewed today, while Scarface seems less shocking than it did during its initial theatrical run, it's no more substantive or interesting.

Pacino, of course, goes way over the top and through the floor on the other side.
