"Heat," released in 1995, stars Pacino as Lieutenant Vincent Hanna, who is pursuing a group of professional bank robbers. Directed by Michael Mann, the movie also stars Robert De Niro and Val Kilmer. It's notable for being the first movie in which Pacino and De Niro, both highly acclaimed actors, appear in a scene together.

The Godfather series follows the Corleone Mafia family. Pacino plays Michael Corleone, the youngest son of Don Vito Corleone. In "The Godfather," released in 1972, Michael's older brother Sonny takes over as head of the family, and Michael must go into hiding in Sicily. When Sonny is killed, Michael returns and becomes head of the family. The movie also stars Marlon Brando and James Caan.

"The Godfather: Part II" was released in 1974. It follows Michael's business ventures for a year. However, the movie also serves as a prequel, with a separate storyline following Vito Corleone during his younger years in Sicily and New York City. It also stars James Caan and Robert De Niro.

"The Godfather: Part III" was released in 1990. In the movie, Michael attempts to turn his criminal empire into a legitimate business. The movie also stars Diane Keaton and Talia Shire.
