Crime • R • 1993 • 2 hr 24 min
Pretty good movie it's an oldie classic. Sean Penn's hair drive me nuts. Trying to stay clean was not in the cards for Pacino's character.
Al Pacino's acting and personality changes of a criminal man, you don't need anything more
Same director as Scarface. A great movie about a former coke dealer aspiring to get on the straight and narrow, with added complications.
Gritty mob movie, feels familiar given the cast and the tropes of the genre, which stops it from being an all time classic
Pacino excellent as always. Good watch as he tries to stay clean after getting out of prison but can’t. Slow but I think very worth it
Loved the dynamic of the film along with Carlitos struggle to reach Paradise Island. One of my favourite endings to a film of all time !
Thrilling and well acted movie about an ex-criminal trying to stay clean.
Great film that is watered down by an overdrawn chase scene leading into a predictable and unsatisfactory conclusion.
It’s different enough from Al Pacinos other films to be an engaging, intense and ultimately poignant look at a man trying to escape crime.
This movie has it all. Action, suspense, romance. It’s one of Pacino’s best works.
A Puerto-Rican ex-con, just released from prison, pledges to stay away from drugs and violence despite the pressure around him, and lead a better life outside NYC.
Jay Hernandez (Friday Night Lights), Mario Van Peebles (Ali), Luis Guzmán (Carlito's Way) and Sean Combs (Monster's Ball) star in the gripping tale of the early years of gangster legend Carlito Brigante. Seduced by the power of the brutal New York underworld, he enters a deadly circle of greed and retribution. Assisted by his two brothers-in-crime, Carlito is on the fast track to becoming Spanish Harlem's ultimate kingpin. He quickly learns, however, that the only way to survive at the top is through loyalty to his friends and respect for the rules of the street. (FILMAFFINITY)
