"Another Al Pacino classic, along with 'The Godfather Trilogy' this is his greatest work. it tells the story of a fictional Cuban refugee who comes to Florida in 1980 as a result of the Mariel Boatlift. Tony becomes a gangster against the backdrop of the 1980s cocaine boom. The film chronicles his rise to the top of Miami's criminal underworld and subsequent downfall. Like 'The Godfather Trilogy' it is extraordinarily popular and is markeed as one of the great crime movies of all time"
