Carlito’s Way Blu-ray Review

Former drug kingpin Carlito Brigante (Al Pacino, Righteous Kill) is released from prison on a legal technicality by his cocaine-addicted lawyer David Kleinfeld (Sean Penn, Mystic River) and stuns his former underworld peers by living up to his vow of going straight, turning his back on his former life of crime. If only it were that easy. Carlito finds reason to stick to his guns when he comes across his former love Gail (Penelope Ann Miller, The Messengers) and rekindles their love affair. But everywhere Carlito turns, from his lawyer to his business co-owning a trendy yet somewhat sleazy nightclub where he is reminded of his past by an admiring young up-and-coming gangster Benny Blanco (John Leguizamo, Assault On Precinct 13). Flanked by his right-hand man Pachanga (Luis Guzman, Boogie Nights) he rebuffs Benny’s attempts at buying his idol a drink. No matter what Carlito does his past seems to come back to haunt him and threaten his present and his future. All he knows is this time around, he has to do it Carlito’s Way.

He stuns the New York underworld by vowing to go straight from a history of violence, but his plans are undermined by misguided loyalties and an outmoded code of honor.
