I felt that this was a okay movie, overall, but I felt that it was way too long. The contemplation of suicide crossed my mind because of the utter length. I also felt the plot was boring, and contained little to keep me interested.

This movie is so accurately portrayed that it has now become one of my all time favorite and greatest movie. The scenery and beauty of this movie is excellent. But the famliy ties in this movie show what it truly was like when times were hard and family and the respect for them was all any one had. Respect for those who hold your life in thier hands is certainly the ones you want to hold up high or place on a pedestal. This movie is great.

This is definitely not a sequel where the director revives a dead plot and swaps the characters and scenery for something equally shiny. This story is a sequel and a prequel. We get to see young Vito Corleone come to America and rise to the five family status with clever tactics and a bag of pistols, while on the other end we see Michael Corleone narrowly avoid assassination and travel to Cuba where he looks for investors in his casinos and searches for whomever put the hit on him. This story is as clever as the original and has most, if not all, of the original cast.

In many ways this movie was superior to its prequel. Less extravagent but no less violent, it has an instropective and an almost Shakeperean tragic touch with it as Michael becomes the unheralded and unrivaled king of the "family business." The film has a certain corrolary between Michael and his father, Vito, as they both rise to fight their enemies and they both display the necessary traits for the job--cunning, ruthlessness, scrupulousness and intelligence with the image of a benevolent family man. I think also that Michael exhibited an almost Lear-like vindictivness towards his brother and his ever growing dark side.

The sequal to prehaps the greatest film ever produced was very different to the blood shed first movie: The Godfather. The fil m delivers a parralell storyline, comparing Michael Corleone's rise of power with Don Vito's in the 40's. I think that this film was celverly written by Puzo to set the scene for the ultimate finalie: The Godfather III....

It's true that sequels are made only for money. Most of them don't make it but this one did ! That's the only difference. Loose storyline - Michael consolidating his empire in parallel with his father's rise to power. Commonplace ideas ( There is an instance of forcing a senator to grant license to Michael's new Casino. He is framed for murdering a prostitute. ). Ordinary music. Pauses which are used so well in this kind of movies are not used. It's shouting from begining to the end ( I could only come halfway. Didn't want any remaining sweet memories of Godfather to be erased ). Very disappointing !

Godfather II is the second in the series of three. It's not a sequel, rather, it's a continuation of the story as good as the origional. GFII continues the story of Michael Corleone but also adds in at the same time scenes of his father Vito's growth in power. Vito goes from a Sicilian immigrant to a Man of Respect in Little Italy. Meanwhile, we see Michael's downfall. Great story. 5 stars.

Just as every Kentucky Derby winner's fole has a million dollar price tag on their head and an expectation of greatness, GODFATHER PART 2 (GF-2) continues the winning heritage of its 1972 fore-father. Coppola brings two stories of the Corleone family to the screen and keeps their seperate continuity on an incredible unequaled track. The film never bogs and when the final frames roll, you sit in shocked amazement. The age old arguement: Which of the two films is better can be the chicken and egg debate of celluloid. DeNiro won his first Oscar for his role as young Vito Corleone. The film is almost stolen by the supporting work of Michael V. Gazzo as old school gangster Frankie 5 Angels and Lee Strassberg as Hyman Roth. Both were nominated for Best Supporting Actor, but lost to DeNiro. This is a great film.
