Product Description

In this gripping film - the winner of 7 Academy Awards - the saga of the two Corleone generations continues with DeNiro as the ambit ious, immoral immigrant and his son Michael, who consolidates the power handed to him by his father.

From Amazon.co.uk

Francis Ford Coppola took some of the deep background from the life of Mafia chief Vito Corleone--the patriarch of Mario Puzo's bestselling novel The Godfather--and built around it a stunning sequel to his Oscar-winning, 1972 hit film. Robert De Niro plays Vito as a young Sicilian immigrant in turn-of-the-century New York City's Little Italy. Coppola weaves in and out of the story of Vito's transformation into a powerful crime figure, contrasting that evolution against efforts by son Michael Corleone to spread the family's business into pre-Castro Cuba. As memorable as the first film is, The Godfather II is an amazingly intricate, symmetrical tragedy that touches upon several chapters of 20th-century history and makes a strong case that our destinies are written long before we're born. This was De Niro's first introduction to a lot of filmgoers, and he makes an enormous impression. But even with him and a number of truly brilliant actors (including maestro Lee Strasberg), this is ultimately Pacino's film and a masterful performance. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What more can be said about the first two godfather films? They are both awesome in there own ways.

I love the flashbacks in this with RDN. Awesome stuff.

I didn’t find this chapter engaging as much as the original ‘The Godfather’ film, contrary to the general love for this film over the original. However, it is brilliantly acted by Al Pacino and Robert De Niro taking us through 2 periods of the Corleone crime family. It works more than expected dipping between both stories that at times mirror each other, but at others I sort of found it a little jarring when wanting to follow one, I was then switched to the other.

Not saying director Francis Ford Coppola was at fault doing this, as his film-making is superb with authentic set pieces and real feel for both eras of New York fuelled by the criminal gangs that made it what it is. A strong story of family and honour runs through both; learning who to trust, why to trust them and the factors that made a man more than just guns and explosives.

It’s a long one at over 3 hours, but it doesn’t drag given the split narrative. If anything, I just found the original more compelling and fuelled by a more fascinating and interesting group of characters who worked in a tight knit group that I felt was missed in parts here. But Pacino and De Niro carry their characters forward with great intensity and an air of danger as we see the highs and lows in the dangerous world of organized crime.

A wonderful soundtrack once more and a simply well written story make this an enjoyable follow-up and continuation of the story you can’t help but be drawn into and remember long after watching.

Godfather Part II is listed as one of the few sequels to better the original. While I prefer the first one myself, Part II is a great film in its own right and one of the finest ever made, although you might not think so after a single viewing.

Like many people, I loved the first film. However, the first Part was heavily criticised by some people for glamorising the mafia. They said it humanised mobsters, and portrayed them as family men who had a warped morality rather than being amoral. So Francis Ford Coppola decided that Part II should be much darker and show more of the downsides of the life of Michael Corleone.

One ingenious idea was to focus on Michael and Vito Corleone at the same stages in their lives, and compare and contrast how they had turned out. This means we also learn the back story of Vito, from his early days in Sicily right through to his establishment of a crime family.

Going into full details of the plot would be far too time consuming but certain sections need a mention. The first would be when Michael visits Hyman Roth and explains that Frank Pentangelli was behind the failed attempt on his life. He then visits Frank Pentangelli and explains that it was Hyman Roth. The acting is so good that it is not at all clear which one he is lying to. The other great scenes would be of Vito Corleone tracking Don Fanucci before killing him, Michael's mother's funeral and the look he gives Al Neri and finally, Fredo's demise.

Some of the shots are simply breathtaking, the music is fantastic, the acting is incredible and the whole film is a treat. However, it has to be said that it needs more than one viewing.

This is a review of the Blu-ray transfer from the trilogy box-set, but it'll be exactly the same as will end up on this single disc.

Well, I was so disappointed by this transfer, I actually almost gave the disc two stars. I mean the PART I Blu-ray isn't anywhere near pin-sharp, but at least it fairs better than this very mediocre, soft-looking effort. There's very little clarity here, annoying heavy grain in dark scenes, overly golden skin tones (whether this was the cinematographer's vision or not, it still looks way too excessive) and that same irregular in-and-out-of-focus fault that was all too noticeable in PART I is back too. You even get the infamous "black jigsaw piece" that was noticeable for a few seconds during the Cuba New Year sequence on the old DVD. It's actually a piece of broken negative perforation that sits lop-sided at the bottom of your screen that hasn't been digitally removed, even during this supposedly new restoration process. Ah, well, doesn't spoil the film at all, just looks silly for a moment.

Honestly, it beggars belief why so many review sites are giving these transfers such glowing praise. Yes, OK, the films have never looked better, way better than the old DVDs, but, just like PART I, PART II looks more like a very good upscaled image than anything related to Blu-ray. I still recommend buying it though, as Paramount will have spent so much restoring it (probably a seven figure sum), you'll probably not see anything better than this for a very long time to come.

So as I say, this is way better than your old DVD, just please don't buy it thinking when you pop it in your BR player and watch it on your 1080p TV, like I did on a 32", that you'll end up staring mesmerised at the most perfect image of THE GODFATHER PART II you've ever seen - because you won't.
