Seen it before? No.
This movie can be summed up in one word - VIOLENT!
Tony Montana is a Cuban expat who turns to the drug cartel 'industry' to move up and get ahead; to afford the things he couldn't afford as a fresh of the boat Cuban refugee. He starts working for Robert Loggia (who is dating a very young Michelle Pfeiffer) but soon works his way to the top and becomes the boss. Murders are happening EVERYWHERE. Somehow he messes up every relationship he hands, lands Michelle Pfeiffer and then screws that up too.
Yes, it is a classic. I get that. Unfortunately my stomach couldn't stand it. Funny considering I am perfectly fine watching Kill Bill and Kill Bill 2 as well as Goodfellas...I don't know what's wrong with me.
Watch it again? As Daniel says, "No fanks"
Own it? Um, no.
