Carlito's Wayward Son

Carlito's Way :Rise To Power straight to video prequel of the Pacino flick- we follow a young Carlito as he forms a interracial coalition to distribute heroin in Harlem- with Luis Guzman,Mario Van Pebbles,Diddy,guys from the Wire and the Sopranos- pretty typical gangsta flick C-

Carlito's Way Al Pacino is Carlito a reformed gangsta looking to clean up after a five year stint in a correctional facility.The DePalma flick never really jelled for me- it did have nice scenes like a groovy escalator shootout and Sean Penn's Jewfro- but I never bought into Carlito's romance with Penelope Ann Miller- she is cute- but there seems to be no chemistry.
