Information and Film Reviews for The Godfather, Part 2 the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

A continuation and retracing of the first film, interpolating the maintenance of the Corleone family by the aging Michael, and its founding by the young Vito (De Niro, in a terrific performance) 60 years before in NYC's Little Italy. Often considered the second half of one film, the two films stand as one of American film's greatest efforts, and as a 1970s high-water mark. Combined into one work for TV presentation. Followed by a sequel.
