I would also agree with this answer... Seems tony montana was like alot of older brothers/dad type figures. He had that attitude where he was gonna do dirt, but he was gonna try and keep Gina away from it.. He even tried to make some good use of his money by trying to give it to his mother...

you know old cliche where the rich criminal tries to make amends by trying to put his money to good use..

He was just fanatical about keeping Gina pure.. He would have trouble with any dude, but no way in hell would let Manny have her..

Thank you. You saved me from having to write it myself. But I would also like to add that Tony didn't have anyone that loved him except his sister. So naturally he's going to be over protective of her. Especially when you throw in his 'gangsta' mentality.

Lol@incest. You guys couldn't be more wrong.

yup.. he tries to protect her and he destroys her and his only other friend Manny in the process..

The classic character.... Everything he touches turns to sh*t, no matter what his intent..

his momma was right about him

the hook however, is we see the ennui and the sadness that making it to the top gets us. you get what you always wanted but things end up worse.

also, great f*cking lines in that movie, the Geto Boys owe their rap career to Tony Montana.

Just look at the expression on Montana's face when he first sees his sister. It is blatant. In the original the incestuousness was more overt, but they obviously dialled it back in this one because otherwise the film wouldn't have as many fanboys.

They didn't dial it back. They changed it completely to overprotectiveness with a hint of possible incest just to give it a little texture to make the audience wonder about their past.

Tony is oddly close to his sister. I'll give you that, but Rasheed1's short description is perfect. He's simply fanatical about keeping her pure.

Horray for sweeping generalizations!

I'm black, I've tried watching Scarface at least 3 times. I thought it was boring, never could get past 30 minutes in. I guess I've seen Al Pacino in more believable roles before I watched that movie so I never bought that dumb accent.

Its not just black people, its everyone.

There is a reason why movies and shows like Breaking Bad, Godfather, Scarface,The Wire and Goodfellas have success. Everyone wants to be and watch the guy sitting at the top.
