Best Al Pacino Movies

The Top Ten
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.

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!

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

No matter how you look at Al's performance, few actors can come close!

2 Godfather II

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.

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.

This is his best performance! He loses his soul completely in this one!

Watched the god father1,2,3 this week, for two times, just can't get enough.

3 Dog Day Afternoon

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!

4 Scarface

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.

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

Scarface is Al Pacino's most rewatchable movie that he's made. The Godfather is a better made movie.But Scarface I love Al Pacino's cuban accent never gets old.Dog Day Afternoon is higher on the list great movie but Scarface besides The Godfather is his most popular movie.

Scarface is the best gangsta movie of all time, but it's not just that.. Scarface tells a real story about the Cubans (and not only) who pass the border and try to have better life in America - "the land of opportunity". Thet tried to escape the communism and make names for themselves whatever it takes. So that been said, Tony Montana is not just the next gangsta in a Hollywood thriller.. He's the face, size and shape of many emigrants during the 80's. Respect for Mister Pacino! He's the best actor of about 3 generations!

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.

One of the best shoot out scenes in film history! Two legends going head to head, & tthe dinner scene was intense. One of my all time favorites!

Underrated Movie... it's so good!

6 Serpico

This movie was good

Best movie ever

7 Scent of a Woman

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

Drammatic, funny, realistic. Right now, there aren t a lot of movies in wich an actor has a so impressive performance, watching this movie, you can feel character' s emotions, this is amazing

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

One of the best movies of all time and my fave Al Pacino movie.

8 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.

9 ...And Justice For All

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

Good movie with an electric Pacino!

Such an underrated movie

10 Scarecrow

Great acting by Pacino and Hackman. I very different buddy movie. One of a kind

The Contenders
11 You Don't Know Jack
12 Angels In America
13 Donnie Brasco

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

14 The Insider
15 Glengarry Glen Ross
16 Jack and Jill

Biggest Oscar snub ever

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

17 88 Minutes
18 The Irishman
19 Stand Up Guys
20 Sea of Love

Great movie - nice love story - not your usual Pacino role. Great!

21 Insomnia

A really great movie by christopher nolan...

22 Carlito's Way

Fantastic acting and intriguing plot - have to say I was in tears at the end of this. Very moving performance from Mr Pacino. Best film I have seen in a long time.

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.

#11?! What's the matter with you people?! This should be in top 5!

23 The Devil's Advocate
24 Bobby Deerfield
25 William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice
