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.

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

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...

The Godfather: Part II review

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. It showed the history of the Corleone family while simultaneously presenting the power of his youngest son Michael, intensely executed by Al Pacino. Memorable lines included/nominated in AFI’s 100 quotes: Michael – “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer." “I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart.” Hyman Roth - "Michael, w...

Keep the first one close, but this one closer : )

Quite possibly one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, sequels ever made. Francis Ford Coppola's incredibly breathtaking sequel to his masterpiece "The Godfather" does an excellent job of picking up where the last one left off. But what makes this stand out from most sequels is that it manages to be the second chapter of the epic saga while simutanteously being the prequel to the first chapter.

With that being said, let's talk about the plot, shall we? The film showcases two intertwining story lines. One showing Vito Corleone's rise from living in the lower class of Little Italy, New York to heading one of the most infamous crime families in America. In the other story, we pick up after the events of the first film. Michael is carrying on the family business and finds himself betray...
