The Godfather, Part II Reviews
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.
(Favorite moment)- "You broke my heart"
'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.
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.
