Weekly Underrated Movie: Carlito’s Way

This weeks underrated movie is Carlito’s Way. Those who have seen the movie love it. The problem is, not many people have seen this movie.

The movie is about an old school gangster, Carlito’s Way (Al Pacino), from Peurto Rico. After being released from jail he pledges to stay away from his former drug dealing ways but that’s not easy when you’re surrounded by friends with bad connections. Even his lawyer (Sean Penn), is corrupt, sniffs coke and has bad friends. When this lawyer gets into trouble, he needs Carlito to help him out. All this stuff drags him back to the world of violence and mistrust. The only way out is to raise enough money for him and his girl. But will he make it in time?

It’s a great movie with great appearances by by Al Pacino, Sean Penn, Penelope Ann Miller and John Leguizamo. If you’re into gangster movies then don’t rent the dvd, but buy it.
