Critic Reviews for The Godfather, Part II
All the performances are fine, especially Lee Strasberg as a despicable Meyer Lansky hood; Diane Keaton, as Michael's despairing wife; Robert Duvall, as his lawyer; and Robert De Niro, as Vito Adolini, nee Don Corleone.
Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather, Part II is an even richer, more spellbinding work than its wholly successful predecessor.
The new sequel to The Godfather, titled The Godfather, Part II, permits us a second look inside that room, inside that world. At times the vision is as beautiful, as harrowing, and as exciting as the original.
The Godfather, Part II really has no reason for its lavish existence other than the greediness of its makers. And that is the kind of avarice that a godfather appreciates.
The Godfather Part II is quite fascinating in its study of a migrant community and especially of power within that community. A mixture of horror, piety and wit, it is compulsive viewing (even if you feel like closing your eyes in some scenes).
Its ambition, vision and artistic courage make it more marvelous than anything we might have expected from that ill-fated form, the sequel.
Audience Reviews for The Godfather, Part II
Mar 27, 2016A sequel surpasses the original in many regards, The Godfather Part 2 is a haunting tale of betrayal, revenge and deception that is brought to life thanks to Francis Ford Coppala's amazing direction and the fantastic dual lead performances.Matthew M Super Reviewer
Feb 08, 2016Surprisingly better than the first film. The Godfather: Part II brings in one of the best performances of all time by Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, Godfather: Part II as well as Part I are the best gangster dramas of all time arguably.Mr N Super Reviewer
Nov 06, 2015"The Godfather: Part II" is a very suspenseful drama with a very exciting story, with great acting and great special effects. I would definitely recommend you watch this movie...but first watch the original classic from 1972 "The Godfather" . The movie may not be as good as the first movie but is still an amazing sequel. I give this movie a 9/10.Steve G Super Reviewer
Mar 20, 2015While most people will say that this is better than the first film, I'm always going to like Part I better. Still though, this is one of the best films that's ever been made.Stephen S Super Reviewer
