Oscar®-winner Al Pacino stars as Cuban émigré Tony Montana in this remake of the 1932 gangster classic. Failing to make it legitimately, Tony and his friend Manny Ray turn to a life of crime, building a successful drug empire in 1980s Miami. But, as Tony's power grows, so does his list of enemies, ego, and paranoia. Brian Da Palma directs an all-star cast, including Oscar®-nominees Michelle Pfeiffer, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Robert Loggia, and Oscar®-winner F. Murray Abraham.

Critics Consensus: Director Brian De Palma and star Al Pacino take it to the limit in this stylized, ultra-violent and eminently quotable gangster epic that walks a thin white line between moral drama and celebratory excess.

Extremely violent '80s crime classic with drugs, sex, etc.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Scarface is extremely violent from start to finish and is not recommended to anyone under the age of 17. It has developed a cultlike following, especially among teenage males. Despite the main character's death due to his violent criminal behavior, his dramatic outbursts may appeal to angsty teens. Additionally, the obscenity-filled dialogue is some of the most quotable in film history, with many lines having been incorporated into hip-hop lyrics of the past 20 years. Tony treats his wife quite poorly, verbally lashing out at her. Cocaine is a constant presence in the film.
