Scarface  2 About

A quintessential '80s work for its intact zeitgeist, capturing the debauchery and excess - the suits, the neon, the synth, the bling - all stylishly shot too. But once the characters open their mouths, well, there goes the ball game. Stone’s script is just corny in both its dialogue and delivery - even featuring a classic cheesy montage at one point - that the whole thing might as well be a cartoon. Some timbre is accumulated in its final act once things start falling to pieces for everyone, but it’s not enough to raise this beyond a diversion at best.
