Critic Review - New York Times

It's a second movie made largely out of the bits and pieces of Mr. Puzo's novel that didn't fit into the first. It's a Frankenstein's monster stitched together from leftover parts. It talks. It moves in fits and starts but it has no mind of its own.

Vincent Canby was more of a critic than most of you put together. Negative reactions to films shouldn't be discounted simply because a film has reached some sort of a borderline religious stature with a certain community (anonymous bile-spewing fanboys, I'm talking to you). Canby should be praised for not being afraid to go against the grain. I have no doubt that his review is anything but honest.

If ever I'm out your way, I will find your tombstone and urinate all over it SPECIFICALLY because of this massive insult to genuine quality and masterpiece. I have this horrible feeling you may have died wealthy as a direct result of being a film critic. How on EARTH this occurred, given this wholesome evidence to undermine your very essence, scares me almost to death. The plus to that is, if ever I meet you in the afterlife I will never let you live this one down, if you'll pardon the obvious pun/oxymoron within this sentence.

this film is a classic film and a damn perfect crime film. Though you have the right to not like anything I feel he is not liking it for the sake of not liking it.

You should go back and watch it again. Your review couldn't be more wrong Mr. Canby.
