    If I wish to see a Scorsese type gangster film I'll watch the real deal (like "Mean Streets") instead of a pale imitation, like this film. Nothing terribly wrong with it. It's just ersatz. All the big scenes, like the coke party on Long Island, the climactic shoot out in the train station, and the nightclub fights have a standard, shopworn feel about them. The only scene with genuine menace was the one where Carlito accompanies his young punk cousin on a drug buy, in a poolroom, that goes bad. That and the performances of Pacino and Penn in the leads are the only decent things about this very long, not very original retelling of the bad guy who dreams of going straight but is tripped up by a crazy, corrupt friend. Sound like "Mean Streets"? Give it a C plus. P.S. If you wanna see a De Palma gangster film that actually feels like a DePalma film 'stead of a Scorsese film then check out the much better "Scarface."
