Scarface is a good movie. We see the violence the cartel does today. It's not a stretch that the kind of violence in Scarface could have happened. The movie does have some verisimilitude.

The great thing about Scarface is that Tony Montana is much more complex than he seems. Yeah he has anger problems and will kill you if you cross him but he wouldn't kill kids. He killed his best friend but you could see that he had some remorse after he did it.

The director shows that even a poor uneducated killer like Tony Montana can see how corrupt and hypocritical that government is.

omg sooo complexx. hezz not completly good or evil and he sparez da kiddies from my little friend.
herp derp.

Every f*cking oldschool man that ever lived was tough, but honorable and chivalrous. It is nothing new.

Michael Corleone's brilliance, "loss of innocence", and evolution through the series sh!ts on Tony Montana's overblown machoism.
