Best of R.A.
13 July 2017 | by kritikoumariaSee all my reviews

I think 9.1 is a low rating for this masterpiece. I loved every single thing about this movie. D.Day Lewis's film has 6.8 in IMDb while this movie has 9.1. Isn't it great? I mean it was closer to the original and the fact that godfather 2 has lower rating than this film, then it says everything. Also, it was better than in the theater. Last but not least, Samantha and Richard were great in the film, i would like to see Samantha in other films, too.They were both absolutely awesome.
