    The 1932 Howard Hawks version? Maybe.

    But the De Palma remake definitely isn't.

    As far as being over the top gangsta yes 100%yes

    Besides paid in full, its also the #1 movie most people in the hood identify with when it comes to being a hustler

    You post 2000s babies have no say in this

    It is one of the most charismatic gangster performances. Without Al Pacino's performance it would have been pretty standard.

    It's GOAT level in terms of its influence, particularly 80s-90s hip hop. As a movie its average af, carried by Pacino.
