In the 60¬īs, the Puerto Rican Carlito Brigante, the Afro-American Earl and the Italian Rocco become best friends while in prison. When they are released, Rocco intermediates a heroin business with a family of the Italian Mafia leaded by Artie Bottolota Sr. Carlito negotiates with the lord Leroy "Hollywood Nicky" Barnes the area where the trio could operate in his neighborhood and sooner the three friends become powerful. Later, Carlito dates and has an affair with the beautiful Leticia. When Earl decides to move to Barbados with his girlfriend and leave the heroin business, his stupid younger brother causes a situation with the Italian mobsters, and Carlito and Rocco have to resolve the mess to save their lives.


For Those Who Aren',t Ignorant., 5 August 2006 Author: SCVUnlimited101 from United States The movie wasn',t bad. This comment isn',t for people who haven',t seen the movie, its for people who didn',t understand the movie, like a number of the people commenting this board.The movie is called "Carlito',s Way: RISE TO POWER," hence why it displayed him rising to power. Had it been called something like, "Carlito',s Way: Rise to Power and The His Arrest," or something to that extent I Would have been disappointed in the lack of jail time at the end of the movie too.This movie did just what it had planned to do, it showed Carlito',s Rise to Power which involved pushing heroin, dealing with Nicky, dating Leticia, and his involvement with the Italians. Basically, him rising to power, and gaining his immense wealth. That',s the movie. It',s a prequel because it comes before Carlito',s Way, the sequel.It obviously didn',t tell of his relationship with Gail, or what put him in jail. Perhaps that',s for a story of another movie. Say Carlito is in his late 20s to early 30s, I don',t know his age, and then say he',s in his late 40s when played by Al Pacino. Therefore there',s still about 15 years unexplained if not more. I can',t recall how many years he was in jail before "Carlito',s Way" but if it was less than ten they',d have to skip around 5 years at the end of "Rise to Power" to get to him being put in jail. That would have confused you even more.If you happen to think that a prequel MUST lead up to a sequel, you',d be incorrect. One of the most popular sagas of all time shows you this. In Star Wars Episode 1, Anakin is a child, next thing you know he',s a grown man. What happened in between? How was puberty for a Jedi? All the questions in between are unanswered, whether you ask them or not. The prequel did not simply lead you through every second until the sequel. Episode 3 is the prequel to Episode 4, but Luke',s entire life is unanswered. Doesn',t make Episode 3 a horrible prequel does it?If you want, make up your own "Carlito',s Way: Downfall," I don',t care, but don',t say it was a horrible movie. It was a well done movie and well acted. It showed you a portion of Carlito',s life you hadn',t seen before. If you can',t get over the fact that they didn',t lead up to his arrest, then you',re missing out on a good movie for a dumb reason.
