My Top 3 Favorite Al Pacino Movies

Published: April 10, 2014

I’m a huge fan of Al Pacino, and throughout the years he acted in many awesome movies that captivated audiences around the globe. From action to drama to your occasional comedy he never ceases to amaze movie lovers. Below is a list of my favorite Al Pacino movies. Attributes that were taken into consideration were storyline, popularity and overall entertainment value.

  1. The Godfather Trilogy

    This trilogy spans three generations of the Corleone Family. After Vito Corleone passes the family looks to Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) to take over the reins. Trying his best to prove to his family and enemies that he deserves the new position and he plans on legitimizing the family, he will do whatever it takes to get the job done.

  2. Scarface

    This movie took America by storm when it first debuted. Al Pacino played Tony Montano, a immigrant that came to states to find the American Dream. Indeed he found the money, the women and power but at such a high cost that you have to question to yourself, “Was it all worth it chico?”

  3. Carlito's Way

    I must have watched this movie 10 ten times already. Carlito is a retired gangster that just been released from prison. He heads back to his old neighborhood with the intention of staying on the right path. Unfortunately the neighborhood has other things in mind for Carlito. Great cast, great storyline and a overall great movie. It you have yet to see it you should definitely give it a try.

This list could have been easily 10 movies long but I only listed my top 3. Other movies that deserve an honorable mention are Devil’s Advocate, Heat, Donnie Brasco, Serpico, Any given Sunday, Dog Day Afternoon, etc.  So make a list of your own favorite Al Pacino films and let’s see how they stack up.
