  1. Bruno's rating of the film Serpico

    O polícia bom... O que tiro daqui é esta Nova Iorque de setenta, a colisão das gerações, da tradição e da cosmopolia, com mais evidência que nos demais tempos, e essa fotografia verde-cinza e cor de barro, quanto à bófia, não mudou, os mesmos sacanas, carrascos do pobre, para isso servem, aceitem subornos ou não

  2. Gia de Almeida's rating of the film Serpico

    As far as I'm concerned this is the best performance I've ever seen by Pacino (and I like plenty of his films). Serpico is an incredibly well developed character, he feels very human. Great stuff. Plus, Pacino is a total babe with that beard and that earring.

  3. Ramzi's rating of the film Serpico

    Fantastic. Hard to keep track of which disgruntled old guy is which. I watched the episode of Always Sunny with the Serpico storyline years ago, so I'm glad that the film does it justice (also, it's even funnier now that I know that the impression actually has very little to do with the film).

  4. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Serpico

    A brilliant essay on idealism and honesty navigating institutional apathy and corruption. With a deft economy of plotting and unobtrusive mise-en-scene Lumet superbly documents a tragic narrative through the wonderfully nuanced performance of Pacino as a cop who's idealism is actually steadfastness not plastic heroics. One wonders (cynically) if 'same old, same old' holds true now? Perhaps there's the tragedy.

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Serpico

    Voilà une oeuvre en tous points, exceptionnelle : par la formidable interprétation d'Al Pacino qui crève littéralement l'écran de sa présence, par la vision quasi-documentaire d'un milieu policier corrompu avec ses codes et ses règlements occultes, par la maîtrise cinématographique de Sidney Lumet, au top niveau de son talent... www.cinefiches.com

  9. ebabehh's rating of the film Serpico

    Frank Serpico, modern-day hero, his constantly shifting wardrobe (how 'bout that lubovitch one?), his sheepdog, his parrot. Back when, by the looks of it, NYC still had crime and character.

  10. ermete polpette's rating of the film Serpico

  11. Bernardo Crastes's rating of the film Serpico

    The vibrant urban jungle background serves as the perfect setting for this tale of honesty and integrity. The oddball Serpico is the obvious magnetic center, absolutely incredible. The movie is all juice, due to the economic editing. No time is wasted in telling this brave man's story, and gladly so.

  12. José Neves's rating of the film Serpico

    rewatched. An extraordinary example of what most significant happened in North-American industrial cinema, in the last decade it knew how to approach the human not forgetting the specificity of its language. Lumet was one of its greatest exponents and if he would lose some brilliance from "Daniel" on, most films directed in the 70s made him the filmmaker who best knew how to inhabit a city, New York New York.

  13. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Serpico

  14. cherbourgdoll's rating of the film Serpico

    i was so disappointed, this was actually really kinda dull

  15. Mia Calavera's rating of the film Serpico

    It's amazing how real the Serpico character remains throughout the movie. The ideals he represents could have easily turned him into a caricature, however the whole package- the additude, the clothes and, of course, Al Pacinos impecable acting- made him one of the best balanced hero characters I've ever seen.

  16. Dalibor's rating of the film Serpico

    A true "New Hollywood" biopic juggling between a drama about personal defeat/victory/both, portrait of hippy 70's New York and an All-American police thriller. With underlying engaged tone that could have only been more convincing back when first screened, and staying away from preachy black-and-white characterizations. Somewhere Oliver Stone should re-watch, write things down and learn.

  17. Dziugas's rating of the film Serpico

    I bet, you never saw, than here, so good lookin' Pacino at all. Insanely realistic cinema. Based on true events. And tragic figure. Classic stuff.

  18. Peregrine's rating of the film Serpico

    The system is overall unfair and you have to be a brave man to resist it. Or you could also be Al Pacino wearing fancy stuff and smoking joints. Inspiring to be yourself, an anti-man and getting all the cute chicks

  19. Emil Kurjak's rating of the film Serpico

  20. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film Serpico

    it has a predictable scenario .

  21. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Serpico

    Think of Al Pacino in Lumet's films: this one and Dog Day Afternoon. Then think about the numerous roles Al played where he was just plain terrible and you will realise the director really shapes the performance. I read Kubrick saying when an actor is performing badly in a film its the director's fault because the actor is only performing for him or her and encouraging it.

  22. Luca Soldati's rating of the film Serpico

    Storia ben raccontata e ambientata nel torbido e nel marcio. Serpico si scontrerà con i suoi colleghi, creando una continua ansia per la sua sicurezza. Protagonista fin troppo positivo, ma la sua battaglia coinvolge molto. Bravo Al Pacino. La regia è molto buona e dà la giusta enfasi alle scene, pur essendo a volte un po' esagerate. Messa in scena buona.Personaggi a volte superficiali, ma sempre funzionali alla trama

  23. bartkl's rating of the film Serpico

    Lovely clean cinema, with a beautiful story and a perfect performance by Al Pacino. It struck me as a romantic, one-dimensional predecessor of the series "The Wire" in film form in a way. Remarkable and unique.
