Best Al Pacino Movies

The Top Ten Best Al Pacino Movies

1 The Godfather

Al Pacino was actually nominated for an oscar in this movie! And everybody is starting to say this is one of the greatest performances of all time, this is the real Al Pacino. Deserved to win this oscar.

This is without a doubt the greatest movie of all time and nobody "made" the film. It was just full of talent and was purely amazing

It was a Composite of all 5 N.Y. families. ( Francis Ford Coppola) combined a little of this, A little of that, and
Combined them in for A Giant of the Movie Industry, Marlon
Brando, Who was Terrific! This is the Film that gave Al Pacino to one of the Greatest Actors of ANY time period!

Legendary film. Was way better than I expected - except - I didn't know what I was expecting lol!

2 Godfather II

Just the full package, and the greatest sequel in history. It had some memorable scenes and quotes, plus it gives you a more than reasonable in sight into the reign of Michael Corleone and also the early days of Vito Corleone.

He is just too cold for words. Sonny was a hot head, but Michael turns out to be more ruthless than he ever thought about being. Vito and Sonny both had the capacity to forgive, but not so Michael. And he was patient. Pacino's best role, no doubt.

Great movie, full of consequences, crime and it shows you how Michael's life becomes

While godfather 1 was a better film... Pacino 's best was the second part... I feel

3 Scarface

ScarFace is so epic! Al Pacino plays a great part, Greatest Movie eve made! Action, Comedy, Crime, Romance & Adventure what more do you want? Besides Al Pacino isn't just playing the typical Italian Mob Man in this, this is so original and unique "A Cuban Drug Lord" how original. ScarFace will always be remembered, by everybody around the world. Steve Bauer is so good in this as well, plays Tony Montana's friend Manny. Michelle Pfeifer is so stunning and underrated in her role as a Druglords wife. The rest of the supporting characters are good as well. They all put in a lot of effort and determination to make such a great film!

Al Pacino, Greatest Actor of all Time

This movie DID NOT MAKE IT TO THE OSCARS,

IT COULDVE BEEN NOMINATED FOR BEST PICTURE EASILY,

BEST LEADING ACTOR - AL PACINO

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR - STEVE BAUER

AND EVEN MICHELLE PHEIFER WAS GOOD IN THIS MOVIE

IT SHOULDVE HAD MORE RECOGNITION THAN JUST 3 GOLDEN GLOBES!

one of Al Pacinos most recognized parts

Oliver Stone is a master filmmaker! With some help from Brian DePalma (Director)

he could bring this memorable piece of cinema to screen

This is a hallmark in Gangster cinema

GANSTERS TRY TO ACT LIKE SCARFACE TONY MONTANA

HOW CAN YOU FORGET "SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND! "

It's to me one of the most riveting and absolutely phenomenal movies I've ever seen, and I've seen my fair share of movies in all genres. But this redemption story of coming from nothing to having the world end's in what I believed was one of the most tragic endings. The ending is determined by the one subtle but yet ironic act of goodness that Tony displays. Al Pacino did a tremendous job in bringing to life the "Cuban Refugee" Turn "Drug Lord" to life, along with the rest of the cast. Especially Steven Bauer who was his best friend/Right hand/2nd in command whatever you want to call him, whom was also phenomenal from beginning til he met his end. Will forever be Al Pacino's best work to date. De Palma/Stone's best as well.

Al Pacino is definitely one of the greatest actors, he can play anything. This is a perfect example of his best work, this movie might not have been as entertaining as the Godfather, but it is his best part played. Scarface is definitely deserves, a lot more recognition.

4 Dog Day Afternoon

This is by far Al pacino's best performace followed by Serpico

Just an amazing performance overall. The way he speaks and the way he maintains his realism is unbelievable and I cannot believe he didn't score an oscar for this movie.

The best Pacino performance ever! The movie itself is very good and creates a reality for the audience because the realistic performance

This movie had one of the greatest performances in cinema history!

5 Heat

A combination of two best of the best actors in the industry. You simply can not ask for actors better than those two. Al Pacino and Robert De Niro both play best roles in this film. The film has awesome story and acting.

Deeply in love with both the legends, Al-Pacino and DeNiro. Great movie and dialogues when they face each other.

Underrated Movie... its so good! - VADERtheIMPALER

Simply awesome movie not of Al pacino but of Robert

6 Scent of a Woman

I think its the highest level of acting an artist can reach. Al pacino is the heart, soul and body of this movie!

This movie is one of my all time favorites. I cannot praise it enough...absolutely SUPERB! Al Pacino's acting is EXTRAORDINARY! He was also BRILLIANT in The Devil's Advocate. For me he was better in these 2 movies than all the other movies on this list.

The acting in this movie is absolutely mind blowing. Al Pacino deserves the Oscar he won - RIDDLER2K15

This movie is absolutely mind blowing. - Ananya

7 The Godfather Part III

Can't believe he wasn't even nominated for Best actor. This why the people question the winners. Let alone not being nominated he should have won.

No way near to Marlon Brando(Genius) the greatest of all times...

8 Donnie Brasco

Pacino gives a reserved and believable performance. He gives the character real sympathy and his final scene is heartbreaking

Al pacino the greatest ever and depp the master

9 ...And Justice For All

The final courtroom scene contains one of the most electrifying performances ever scene in a film.

Such an underrated movie

Good movie with an electric Pacino!

This is really very underrated

10 Serpico

Best movie ever

This movie was good - simmonsjen11

The Contenders

11 Jack and Jill

Stop being sarcastic idiots
this is the only movie that deserves to be on this list
so underrated and funny. all these other movies are f-ing boring and old

Biggest Oscar snub ever

Easily one of the greatest movies ever made, dunkacino anyone?

The Only Good Al Pacino Movie - Sausagelover99

12 Carlito's Way

I vote for this film because it was criminally underrated compared to legendary The Godfather franchise and Scarface - Alexandr

Pacino was at his prime while acting for this film. He was relaxed, confident, and not over the top. And he was supported by a great Sean Penn.

Carlito's Way is one of Pacino's top 5 movies. Better performance than Dog Day Afternoon.

One of his best to date but severely underrated.
