Description

This brilliant companion piece to the original The Godfather continues the saga of two generations of successive power within the Corleone family. Coppola tells two stories in Part II: the roots and rise of a young Don Vito, played with uncanny ability by Robert De Niro, and the ascension of Michael (Al Pacino) as the new Don. Reassembling many of the talents who helped make The Godfather, Coppola has produced a movie of staggering magnitude and vision, and undeniably the best sequel ever made. Robert De Niro won an Oscar; the film received six Academy Awards, including Best Picture of 1974.

    The acting once again was amazing and the story and how the movie went on just never got me bored. Everything in this movie was clearly beautiful. The ending by far was my favorite when there all sitting at the table talking. There were so many great scenes like Vito when he was younger, Fredo at the lake, and many many more. You have to see this movie because it's just brilliant filmaking. It's not better than it's first film but still an extremely worth sequel!

    The lack of narrative structure makes this a tough watch at 3.5 hours. But there are few other well known films that have the same effect as a classic novel - leaving you with so much to consider about the predicament of the main characters. As the days go by since watching it, it gets better and better.
  • Yes the Very Best ...

    A lot more complex and I wouldn't say it was better than the first one.

    I have watched this film over 30 times and find it as exciting as I did the first time. The music is so in touch with what goes on. I consider anybody who hasn't seen this film or any of The Godfather films to extremely lucky... because they have it all to watch for the first time and Films like this will never be made again.
