Jesus.Imagine when this hair style was an IN thing.

I’d never seen Scarface fully until just now and it started out so good.I was enjoying it but the more the film went on the more i began to hate Tony Montana.He’s a good bad guy and all that but he’s just such a massive douche bag.I mean really he has everything,gets the girl the power and the money but somehow it just ruins him.It could be the massive amounts of coke he’s doing that begin to warp him but i guess that’s here-say. Scarface was written by Oliver Stone and Brian De Palma directed.You really do get the 80’s theme from the film with the clothing choice disco music and  the rest.There’s also some good original music in the film too.I’ll sum up the plot for anyone who hasn’t seen it,in a nut shell it’s :a Cuban guy emigrates to American,starts small doing ‘jobs’ for a gangster,he moves up the ladder and then he’s on the top rung.No one’s untouchable so eventually he gets got.Michelle Pfeiffer looks tasty in this but she could have done with a couple of cheese burgers.

IMDB RATING      –     8.2
MY RATING     –    7.5
SEEN BEFORE     –     NO
RECOMMEND?     –     YES
OVERALL     –  WOULD HAVE BEEN TWICE AS GOOD WITHOUT SCARFACE IN IT.
