  1. 1

    The Godfather Part II

    Name a movie buff who hasn't seen this. Pacino deserved an Oscar, but lost. So many classic lines.. "Fredo you broke my heart". Best sequel ever, and his best performance hands down.
  2. 2

    Scarface

    Scarface is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list The Best Al Pacino Roles

    If your a hip hop fan and don't have this movie, turn in your gangsta card!!! "Say hello to my little friend" is perhaps the most famous line. I take a few points away for the terrible Cuban accents. Have seen this movie over 150 times.
  3. 3

    The Godfather

    In my mind the greatest movie of all time. The only reason Pacino isn't higher in this movie is because Brando was the star. In part II Pacino is the star!!!
  4. 4

    Dog Day Afternoon

    Dog Day Afternoon is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list The Best Al Pacino Roles

    Attica!! Attica!! Attica! Wow Pacino robbing a bank to support his gay lover's sex change. Based on true story. I think this role established him as a force in Hollywood.
  5. 5

    Pacino really became his character in this movie. Another true story, he plays the role with so much realism and was nominated again.
  6. 6

    Played a second rate mobster here, and had a great cast including Depp. Made you love his lovable loser Lefty character. Great movie.

    Heat is listed (or ranked) 7 on the list The Best Al Pacino Roles

    Aah the iconic and long awaited on screen scene with DeNiro!! That alone is worth watching this movie. But it really is a great movie. Great supporting cast. Long though.
  8. 8

    ...And Justice for All

    "You're out of order, this whole court is outta order!!! Once gain nominated, and gives a great performance.
