Tony Montana

Al Pacino plays the unforgettable and eminently quotable Tony Montana, a Cuban transplant to Miami who vows to get the money, the power and the women — just not with a white picket fence. Instead he chooses to dabble in white powder, making himself into the biggest cocaine dealer in the city and a major badass. Along the way he gains plenty of enemies and eventually just becomes paranoid and angry, spiraling out of control with assault weapons blazing. So, yes, you will have to say hello to his little friend. His name is so closely aligned with the term badass that approximately 68% of hip-hop artists own at least one copy of Scarface.
