Critic Reviews of "Scarface"New York Daily NewsDecember 09, 2015
Stone sticks all too closely to the dated plot structure of the original movie, and such melodramatic flourishes as Montana's incestuous attraction for his sister now seem completely ludicrous.TIME MagazineJuly 30, 2014
It is a serious, often hilarious peek under the rock where nightmares strut in $800 suits and Armageddon lies around the next twist of treason.VarietyFebruary 23, 2012
Performances are all extremely effective, with Pacino leading the way.ReelViewsApril 30, 2009
Viewed today, while Scarface seems less shocking than it did during its initial theatrical run, it's no more substantive or interesting.Washington PostFebruary 21, 2007
As stylized social realism gives way to wigged-out Faustian fantasy, the would-be devastating effects have an oddly slapstick effect.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
An unashamed study of selfish, sadistic criminality, and all the better for it.Seanax.comMarch 24, 2016
De Palma directs it as a blood-drenched thug opera, a mix of the graceful and the garish with Pacino's guttural thug-in-a-suit spitting out dialogue like broken glass in a harsh Cuban accent.Radio TimesJuly 30, 2014
The sharp, if expletive-ridden, dialogue in Oliver Stone's script and the vivid cinematography of John A Alonzo help make De Palma's urban shocker a modern-day classic.People MagazineJuly 30, 2014
Characterization and plot go out the window. Arms are cut off with chain saws. By the third hour everything is out of control.Christian Science MonitorJuly 29, 2014
[Brian DePalma] apparently considers ''money isn't everything'' an original and profound message.Suite101.comJanuary 03, 2014
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.Mania.comDecember 11, 2013
By ignoring its massive, toxic, nuclear-fallout shortcomings, it finds its way to the hallowed status of camp classic.
