Summary: The sequel to "The Godfather" continues the saga of two generations of successive power within the Corleone family. Coppola tells two stories in Part II: the roots and rise of a young Don Vito, played with uncanny ability by Robert De Niro, and the ascension of Michael (Al Pacino) as the new Don. (Paramount)
The sequel to the Godfather is an entirely different film that still maintains the same brilliance as the first. It follows the young Don as he gains power. The story allows more of an emotional connection to one of the most memorable characters from the Godfather. Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are both amazing. And the score is brilliant, one of the most memorable in movie history.
A rare case of a sequel being better than its prequel. And we´re talking about topping one of the greatest movies ever made. More complex and layered than the first one, this revolutionary movie manages to tell two stories at the same time with the same care and without ever loosing track of what it wants to say. The script is wonderfull, the acting too. One big operatic family tragedy, shot by G.G. Willis that continues to fascinate anyone who loves movies. A classic and a true masterpiece.
A masterful film that takes the original's themes of family, religion, and community and brings them into more direct contact with politics and societal elements that threaten the Corleones very existence. Could it be that making the family business legitimate is even more dangerous for the Corleones than remaining illegitimate? Coppola rightly allows his pictures to do most of the talking, beautifully blends two distinct stories, and subtly prepares us for the effecting tragedies of Fredo/Kay.
An equally good film as the first, and certainly a worthy sequel, which says a lot considering how fantastic the first was. Pacino is great, and De Niro is stellar, doing great justice to Brando's character. Safe to say this is the best sequel ever made. The end is absolutely fantastic.
