Al Pacino is mostly remembered for his legendary performance in Scarface and The Godfather 1 & 2. His performance in Day Day Afternoon easily ranks up as one of his best performance he has ever given.
When it comes to movie based on true stories, I usually have knowledge on the events in the movie or people their based on. Like Rosewood, I went into this movie not knowing about what happened and being truly blown away by the impact of the movie. While it may be a robbery gone bad movie, Al Pacino performance truly makes us want to learn more about his character and entertains us through the whole movie. Though my only complain is that I felt it lost momentum towards the end, but it wasn’t anything Al Pacino couldn’t handle.
Beside Al Pacino performance being flawless, we forget that we’re watching a movie from how invested you’ll be in this movie. The cast, writers, and director of Dog Day Afternoon deserve recognition for there tremendous accomplishment in this movie. There’s not enough words to describe how much I enjoyed the movie.
Dog Day Afternoon is one of those rare movie that gets everything rights in move. It has anything if not everything you could want from a great Al Pacino movie. I highly recommend this masterpiece for anyone and everyone that watches movie as they will experience a movie words can’t express upon how incredible it is.
