How to do a sequel - The Godfather: Part 2 review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
09/05/2009

This is an example of a sequel delivering far more than we could have envisaged. Yet even as a standalone film it works marvellously well. Coppola weaves the continuing tale of the Corleone family; in effect there are two strands in this sequel. One concerning the original Godfather and how he came to be in America, but we also follow Pacino as his replacement, growing in power, influence and unleashing revenge on those who have done his family wrong. You should watch the Godfather trilogy in order but you can return to these films again and again to appreciate the marvellous quality.

Even better than the original - The Godfather: Part 2 review by RP

Spoiler Alert
30/01/2012

I've recently taken the opportunity to see (again!) the 'Godfather' trilogy. The original film in the series was made waaaaay back in 1972, 'Godfather Part II' in 1974 and 'Godfather Part III' in 1990. This film – Part II - is my favourite and I consider it even better than the original. Although a 'Best Supporting Actor' Oscar went to Robert de Niro for his role as the young Vito Corleone, my vote goes to Al Pacino for his role as Michael Corleone, Vito's son and successor as 'the Godfather'. (Aside: In fact he did win a BAFTA for Best Actor, but I'm sure he'd rather have had an Oscar). It is a superb film and while it is a sequel it is a fine film in its own right and is strong enough to stand alone. There are two strands to the story: Michael Corleone's progress as he ruthlessly expands his father's empire into legalised gambling in Nevada and (unsuccessfully) into Cuba, and the story of the young, orphaned Vito Corleone coming from Sicily to the US and making his name as a young but powerful figure in the New York Italian community. The film ends sadly with Michael reflecting on the deaths in his own family, his estrangement from his wife and the heartbreaking decision to order the killing of his own brother. Superb stuff – 5/5 stars.
