The Godfather, Part II Reviews

The result is among the very greatest American films.

Breathtaking in scope, Part II also shows the early life of the Don, brilliantly portrayed by Robert De Niro, as he flees Sicily and sails for New York. These sequences have the grandeur of a silent movie by DW Griffith or Erich von Stroheim.

It is even better than the first film, and has the greatest single final scene in Hollywood history, a real coup de cinéma.

Either taken alone or together with the original, The Godfather Part II is an astounding work.

Arguably better than the original, this is still an amazing film.

Total Film

The plotting is elliptical and the sweep intoxicates, but the contrast between De Niro's meditative Vito and Pacino's soul-starved eyes brings piercing focus to Coppola's resonating study of corrupting power.

That lasting popularity isn't a fluke; the "Godfather" films stand the test of time because these aren't just movies, they're cultural touchstones.

This film has an even broader scope than the original, but does not fail in its depiction of small, intimate moments and surprising emotional reveals.

It delves deeper into the Corleone mythology, past the romanticism, to deliver an epic and intelligent tragedy.

From start to finish, this is filmmaking at its most immortal.

Emanuel Levy
EmanuelLevy.Com

A rare sequel that is even better than the original 1972 The Godfather, largely due to the superb performances by De Niro (as the young Brando character), Pacino, who here assumes the lead, and the rest of the ensemble.

Instead of sitting in the shadow of the original Godfather, the Godfather Part II added to to the epic and made it even greater.

Reel Film Reviews

Often ranked as the greatest movie sequel ever produced, The Godfather: Part II follows Al Pacino's Michael Corleone as he teams up with gangster Hyman Roth (Lee Strasberg) in an effort to expand his empire into the lucrative world of gambling.

Not once does Pacino overtly ask for the audience's sympathy, but through a disciplined, suggestive performance he dominates the film.

Although it runs a bit long, The Godfather: Part II is still an excellent film.

While I'm sure profits were a big part of the conversation the Paramount suits had when deciding to green-light The Godfather Part II, but Coppola didn't go out and bastardize the franchise. Far from it.
