      Chris Willman Los Angeles Times In this superfluous rehash of a series, not even Capone is all that interesting. Jul 29, 2019 Full Review Rick Kogan Chicago Tribune Though it is sure to attract a large initial audience-and will satisfy many-I wonder if the show's writers will be able to invent enough stories to keep the series interesting. Capone, after all, was locked up for keeps in 1931. Jul 29, 2019 Full Review David Hiltbrand People Magazine In the original series, Al Capone had already been packed off to prison. In this richly textured remake, Scarface is front and center and played with enormous vigor by sleepy-eyed B-movie bad guy William Forsythe. Rated: B Jul 29, 2019 Full Review
