The Godfather: Part II

The Godfather: Part II ★★★★

Turns out family isn’t forever. This is thematically more interesting and has more depth than the first, but I still prefer the first one simply because I like the characters and central dynamic there more. I wish it would have focused more on the on the change in Michael and young Vito (really enjoyed the flashbacks) rather than spending so much time on the Cuba storyline, which while still enjoyable, is easily the weakest part of the film. Thankfully, it picks itself back up and goes off on a high note with the ending. Really leaves you with something to think about.
