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

During the first scene in Michael's office, when he's speaking with Senator Geary, a copy of John F. Kennedy's book "Profiles in Courage" is clearly visible on the desk behind Al Pacino. See more »
During the "Little Italy" parade in the long shot a white man opens a window and looks out. Clearly with his big Afro and mustache, he is part of the 1970's, not early 1900's. 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.

They've killed the boy! They've killed young Paolo! They've killed your son Paolo!

Closing credits state that this film is "Based on the Novel "The Godfather" by Mario Puzo." In fact, only the scenes showing the young Vito have any basis in the novel. Everything dealing with Michael Corleone and his family in Las Vegas was created for the film, with the exception of the character Deanna Dunn. See more »
5.1 Blu-ray remix replaces a bunch of foley sound effects like gunshots, car sounds, and ambiance. However, if you select the English Mono track on the same Blu-ray disk you'll get the original theatrical mono mix. 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.
