The Godfather: Part II

The Godfather: Part II ★★★★★

The Godfather: Part II is a sequel that manages to be superior (even despite the sometimes sluggish pace). The flashbacks of Vito Corlone, add so much poignancy and punch to Michael's character and story, with Al Pacino giving a stupendous performance, and Robert De Niro excellently portraying young Vito.

Like the original, the cinematography and Coppola's filmmaking is exceptional, and the final few minutes are powerful, emotional cinema.
