No wonder this movie won the Academy Award for best picture in 1972 - it's great! And timeless, since even today the acting and storyline are topnotch. Obviously, since it's about the mafia, it is violent - viewer beware. But the violence seems very plausible and fits with the story. Each character is developed so well, even many of the "side" characters. Fun to watch Al Pacino and Robert Duvall at the beginning of their very successful careers.

There is nothing I can say that will do this movie justice. Possibly the greatest movie of all time.

Such a freaking classic.

Don Vito Corleone: You talk about vengeance. Is vengeance going to bring your son back to you? Or my boy to me?. the godfather to me is a bloody brilliant masterpiece of a film and people may say it is not they cup of tea and am okay with that but this movie changed the way that I thought of movies, the story is about a man called Don Vito Corleone who has this big family and big friends and all in the middle of all of that the family and friends don't know that he works with the gangsters, The acting is out of this world and the music is so chilling and moving with a gangster feel mixed with it, R.I.P. Marlon Brando you beautiful man your brilliant actor bring us a strong Character in the movie that you deserved more then one Oscar and this movie deserved more then 3 Oscars it deserved 1...

Don’t ever take sides against the family

Although the movie is three hours long, it absorbs us so effectively it never has to hurry. There is something in the measured passage of time as Don Corleone hands over his reins of power that would have made a shorter, faster moving film unseemly. Even at this length, there are characters in relationships you can understand just by the way the characters look at each other and talk to each other. Coppola has found a style and a visual look for all this material so “The Godfather” becomes something of a rarity. So much so that "The Godfather" (played brilliantly by Marlon Brando) himself is not even the central character in the drama. That position goes to the youngest, brightest son, Michael (Al Pacino), who understands the nature of his father’s position while revising his old-fashion...

My 100th Review: The Godfather

This is a special event for me, because this is my 100th review, so I thought: why not do something special this time and review the film that contributed to my early love for film, the official king of all movies?
So here it is: my review for 'The Godfather'.

Rarely does a movie influence something. Especially today. After all, it is just a movie. it would take a lot to change something in a person.
For a long time, I had forgotten about the Godfather and started dismissing it as overrated.
Then I remembered, what I owed this movie.
It truly is life-changing for me, when something as simple as a fictional flick can change you in a way that you stop looking at movies as flicks, and start to refer to them as art. The Godfather is a good example that displays this, because this, alon...
