This truly is a rare thing: a sequel that is every bit as good as the original, and, some might say, even better.

It's extraordinary in its ambition and scope, and, although it's huge in both respects, it doesn't miss out on the intimate scenes. They, and the rest of the film have real power and emotional resonance.

Pacino and company, this time with the fabulous addition of Robert De Niro as the younger Vito Corleone, make this a riveting, rewarding and superb examination of the corrupting influence of power.

One of the few maybe only sequels that equals the original

This is a tough movie to judge. The Vito story is beyond amazing. The Michael story is excruciatingly boring and painful to watch. They should have focused only on Vito.

A worthy sequel to its predecessor, Godfather II delivers fine performances and writing. Its pace is rather weak at times- especially during the flashback sequences.
(Favorite moment)- "You broke my heart"

Another long lesson in ruthlessness, with a less convoluted story than the first movie, but still drags a bit on some scenes.

45 years later, and yet these first 2 movies of this franchise are masterpieces.

The Godfather: Part II is easily my favorite movie of all time, with its brilliant juxtaposition of the lives of father and son, and its respect for my favorite film genre, the gangster picture. Francis Ford Coppola's direction, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro's performances, and Nino Rota and Carmine Coppola's score make this a truly majestic movie experience.

'The Godfather: Part II' is an improvement over the first entry that, despite still being overlong and convoluted, feels more accomplished thanks to excellent performances and a compelling story at its centre.

Would have rathered it be only about Michael and not jump back and forth

Not as good as the first one, but still one of the best films ever made.

a master piece in all the sense of word, somehow it manages to be as good as itīs predecesor. this is one of those movies you donīt like to watch very often, so the next time you see it, you can have that jaw-dropping from the very beginning to the very end.

10 out of 10:

They took one of the greatest films of all time and made a sequel that held up to expectations. The acting and cinematography are as good, costumes are well done, and it's a bit more powerful than the original. The Godfather Part II is as good if not a bit better than the original.

It isn't quite as good as the first one, but The Godfather Part II is still a great movie, not to mention an exceptional sequel.

Phenomenal sequel, how a sequel should be starring al pacino and Robert de niro. The next installment in the godfather trilogy is awesometacular, it's really good especially Robert de into as a younger version of vito coreone, the godfather. The first godfather is a classic and no doubt about it, now the sequel in my opinion is better by a quarter of a mile. I know that's not a big difference but in movies it's huge, I liked it more because their is more action, more vito and vito. Vito, the godfather is my favorite character in this franchise, no one can beat him especially not micheal, his son. I like micheal when he's yelling or ordering people to kill his loved ones because they betrayed him. I can't wait to see the third installment in this iconic trilogy.

The best sequel till date which draws on brawny, powerhouse performances by Al Pacino and Robert De Niro coupled with immaculate direction by Francis Ford Coppola. Second masterstroke by him after the prequel indisputably.

The Godfather Part II nearly lives up to it's predecessor in impressive directing, a documentary like feel to it's production (i.e. I almost forget acting is involved rather than watching the real thing), and terrific dialogues and development of each of the characters. I would highly recommend but definitely not before seeing the original.

Great movie showing the mindset of vito corleone and micheal corleone at once.

Just as incredibly well made as it's predecessor, I'm genuinely at conflict as to which one of the the two masterpieces I enjoy more. Part II shows us some of Vito Cor
