ConsNothing for me at all

Take Al Pacino as Michael Corleone in The Godfather Part II. He's young, fresh faced, almost unrecognisable as Pacino. Then look at him 9 years later in Scarface. The spark in his eyes, the drawn face and the violent streak - it's how we know Pacino's characters, the gruff and rough type. Take...

ProAnother great movie

ConsA little complicated on first viewing

The critics have acclaimed The Godfather Part II as the greatest sequel of all time. Many have gone on to say that it is better than the original. I am not sure and I will try and explain why. Before I begin I will say that the film I watched was the 25th anniversary video. Similar to the...

I'm sure at the time it was announced there would have been many people that thought another Godfather film would tarnish the reputation of what is a classic. Those fears were un-necessary as The Godfather Part II is a film in it's own right. You don't really have to have seen the first one to...

ProThe mix of the two greats is amazing

ConsThe longness of the movie may put some veiwers off

Starting when the first movie left off, this film brings in the continual change of Michael just as well as the original. The first left us with Michael Corleone, the head of the Corleone family, trying to turn his portion of the American-Italian mafia into straight guys earning a straight living...

Barry Norman for 25 years on BBC1 had the great job of saying "yet again a sequel that does not live up to anything like the original - the only one that has is Godfather II" I must have heard him say it 100 times. Made two years after the original in 1973, The film actually in my opinion beats...

I had read the book and had started searching for the trilogy, but it was £42.00 pounds, far too much for me. I searched around on the net and it wasn't much cheaper, so i went into HMV and to my surprise and delight, it was a 3 for 2 offer. I got the 3 videos for about £15 pounds. I sat down for...

Product Information : The Godfather Part 2 (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

The sequel to THE GODFATHER tells the story of both a young Vito Corleone (Robert De Niro), newly arrived in America, and his son Michael (Al Pacino), forty years later, running the family empire. On the streets of Hell's Kitchen in 1917 New York City, Vito is initiated into the ways of the local cosa nostra by his friend Clemenza (Bruno Kirby). After killing the local mafioso in a towel-wrapped gun, Vito becomes the new man to be respected and feared. Meanwhile, a dour Michael Corleone negotiates with business partner Hyman Roth (legendary method actor Lee Strasberg in his first film role) in Cuba and testifies in front of a Washington Senate committee. Robert Duvall (Tom Hagen), Diane Keaton (Kay Corleone), Talia Shire (Connie Corleone), and John Cazale (Fredo Corleone), reprising their roles from THE GODFATHER, are outstanding as the people forced to watch the new godfather's moral destruction. Robert De Niro, speaking in Italian, captures the mannerisms of Marlon Brando's Vito Corleone from the first film brilliantly. THE GODFATHER PART II is one of the only major sequels ever made that might just surpass the original.
