In the midst of trying to legitimize his business dealings in New York City and Italy in 1979, aging Mafia Don Michael Corleone seeks to avow for his sins, while taking his nephew Vincent Mancini under his wing.
When the menace known as the Joker emerges from his mysterious past, he wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham, the Dark Knight must accept one of the greatest psychological and physical tests of his ability to fight injustice.
The continuing saga of the Corleone crime family tells the story of a young Vito Corleone growing up in Sicily and in 1910s New York; and follows Michael Corleone in the 1950s as he attempts to expand the family business into Las Vegas, Hollywood and Cuba. Written by

Marlon Brando and Robert De Niro are the only two actors to ever win separate Oscars for playing the same character. Brando won Best Actor for The Godfather (1972) and De Niro won Best Actor in a Supporting Role for this movie, both in the role of Vito Corleone. See more »

The godfather was born Vito Andolini, in the town of Corleone in Sicily. In 1901 his father was murdered for an insult to the local Mafia chieftain. His older brother Paolo swore revenge and disappeared into the hills, leaving Vito, the only male heir, to stand with his mother at the funeral. He was nine years old.

As with the first film no opening credits are shown. Although it is now commonplace for films not to have opening credits, it was considered innovative in 1974. See more »
This movie is way to be good to be labelled a sequel to The Godfather .
Rather it is more of a companion piece to the original and the two perfectly
compliment each other . IT is both a sequel and prequel showing the rise of
the young vito and moral decline of Micheal . Both characters are brought to
life with uncanny ability by Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino . To say that
these two are good actors is like saying that a nuclear bomb makes a loud
noise and in this movie they prove why they are at the top of their
respective crafts .
Al Pacino is the standout in the ensemble cast and its amazing how his eyes
have changed from the first part . They are now cold , ruthless and
unemotional and betray the price which Micheal Corleone has paid for power .
Watch this movie and learn why it is the greatest gangster film of all time.
