The Godfather, Part II Reviews
The film has two timelines which can be confusing for the viewer as we switch between the two.
One timeline focuses on the early life of Vito Carleone, his childhood in Sicilly. His arrival in New York and rise amongst the Italian American community to Godfather status in the first film.
Robert De Niro plays Vito in young adulthood.
The second timeline follows Don Michael Carleone (Al Pacino) and his grip on the family after the second world war.
Some interesting scenes are witnessed in Cuba with the revolution of Fidel Castro.
De Niro and Pacino put in electrifying performances in their respective segments.
The production does look very polished with some memorable scenes and cinematography.
Where as the first Godfather film focused on the solidity of the Carleone family here we see the grip of Michael Carleone on the family fall apart.
Well worth the effort of the three hours plus running time. Director Francis Ford Copolla strikes cinema gold again.
Lo más cercano a la perfección de una película. Es muy difícil hacer una secuela mejor que la original y mucho más difícil si hablamos de El Padrino. Sin duda este es un hito histórico de la cinematografía.
