Coppola pushes the boundaries of his now epic saga in a new delivery of exceptional storytelling and an enthralling and epic structure. De Niro's addition is a fantastic decision by the visionary Coppola; the 70s were the best time to tell such a magnificent story. A splendid cast still fills the screen; nevertheless, it is its natural and unforced direction that makes of The Godfather, Part II one of the best American movies ever made. It is a mood that does not prevail in modern cinema anymore. 98/100

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.

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. The film doesn't have the guttural punch of the first film's moments of brutality, but it does benefit from a longer and more in depth approach to the crime family.

Part II rocks

The Godfather Part II (1974) is a fantastic sequel and prequel to the original movie. Michael Corleone is the Godfather in this movie, but someone is trying to kill him. He also is given the option of investing in Cuba, but bad things are happening there. And the relationship between him and Kay Adams is getting on the rocks, and they separate (I enjoyed the separation because Michael was so mean and hotheaded to her).
Meanwhile, the prequel part shows you how Vito Corleone (now portrayed by Roberto De Niro! Awesome!) became the original Godfather. His family is killed, he escapes from the killers, and goes to the United States. He becomes a robber with his friend after he is replaced from his first job working in a restaurant. Their is this other criminal who Vito kills.
I enjoyed both...

"The Godfather Part II" by Yojimbo

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. We see how Vito used violence to settle scores and remove the opposition, where an increasingly cold and hard Michael uses it as matter of factly as a business tool, even on his own friends and family. Coppolla's uses of light breaks with tradition, choosing to contrast the outside world with the Corleone's dark underworld which is constantly steeped in blackest sha...
