Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer

  • Excerpt: At the end of “The Godfather”, we have seen Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) change from a young man who wanted to stand apart from his family to one who did not hesitate to take up the reigns of control. In “Part II” , we see him lose his remaining shreds of morality and become an empty shell, insecure and merciless. The devolution of Michael Corleone is counterpointed by flashbacks to the youth and young manhood of his father, Vito (Robert De Niro).

  • Summary: Michael Corleone: "If you don't listen to me and marry this man, you'll disappoint me". The godfather: part 2 is one of the best squeal's ever made to cinema. The acting is outstanding and the characters feel like real people and not movie characters.

  • Summary: Although it doesn't have quite the iconic imagery and nature of the first film, the Godfather: Part II is a richer, more full tale that dives more into the tragic and revenge-filled backstory behind the Corleone family. The acting is fantastic as the franchise adds the inimitable talents of Robert De Niro, and the production design and atmosphere is as deep and involving as ever.

  • Summary: This movie does surpass the first, due to one thing only... the acting. The entire cast was amazing and exploded on screen making this a more fun and exciting watch than the first. The writing, directing, score, and everything in between lived up to the amazingness of the first.

"The Godfather Part II" by Yojimbo

Yojimbo, FilmCrave
31 March 2012
  • Excerpt: It's difficult for me to think of this as a sequel per se. It's a true and natural continuation of the original and one of the best films ever made in it's own right. The way the story flits between the story of Vito's humble beginnings when Sonny, Fredo and Michael were infants and compares and contrasts where their lives have brought them is magnificent, the relationship between Fredo and Michael being particularly poignant.

  • Summary: This is a longer and even richer continuation of the first 'Godfathe'r film. A quiet compelling character piece of the father and son. At once and prequel and sequel, the events of each one's journey to lead this crime family run parallel in story telling format. Yet, this is even longer and more drawn out than the previous. So much feels slow and sluggish, making it hard for me to invest. It has a terrific end, but the journey to get there is a bit rocky.

  • Summary: First movie is better. But second is for sure among the best gangser films ever. What is better in this movie is that it also tells story of young vito which makes it kind of more epic than first one. I love this movie also because of michael, great character, i love when he is thinking how to outsmart his enemies, and he always does it. I am very annoyed by diane keaton and she play bitch very well.

The Godfather: Part II review

Daniel Corleone, FilmCrave

  • Excerpt: Not everybody would understand the impact of The Godfather series unless you completely give your utmost attention and interest on the themes. Many film lovers would say that The Godfather II is better than the first. I beg to differ since the first chapter will always be the basis of a sequel and it had a more complete solid cast and positive themes. Marlon Brando declines but Robert De Niro excels as the young Don on the rise.

  • Summary: I have officially reached the point where it takes me 3 nights to make it through a long movie. Maybe that is to blame, but I was not impressed by this. Another case of "Why make this movie?" It just shows the further downward spiral of corruption. I think that point was already made well by the first movie.

One of the best sequels ever made

20 March 2011
  • Excerpt: You wonder how anyone can top The Godfather with a sequel, and believe me this task can't be easy for anybody. But Coppola gave us a thing of beauty with the sequel to The Godfather. The Godfather Part II presents two storylines going back and forth. One involves now Don Michael Corleone in 1958/1959 after the events of the first movie (remember the end scene of the first one when he is getting introduced) and the other is a series of flashbacks following his father the...
