Atom User Reviews for The Godfather: Part II 45th Anniversary (1974) presented by TCM
This movie is one of the greatest films ever made. All the stars!!
Saw it 1974 and countless times on TV but seeing it again on the big screen reminded me of how epic it was. Great storytelling & acting. The back and forth of present day and Vito's history make this a terrific saga. Glad I went.
So glad I finally had to chance to see Godfather 2 on the big screen. Given the current state of American cinema, these TCM events are the only reason I attend theatrical showings anymore.
Favorite visual. Bruno K by door aiming at cop. Deniro walking on rooftops casing BLACK HAND.
I thought I was in heaven 20 years ago when I saw both 1 and two together as a double feature. this by far was the most enthralling showing I had ever seen! I for the first time finally saw the gun put to freddo to end this tragic opera. I was totally blown away
5 stars and rightfully so. This is the epitome of what film should be. Is it perfect? No, no film is, but damn does it come close.
If you get a chance to see The Godfather Part II on a big screen, BY ALL MEANS GO!! Some movies cannot be done justice on DVD or via streaming on a tv no matter how large. Colors, sound ALL is better in a theater!
This magnificent 1974 sequel, the centerpiece of Coppola and writer Mario Puzo's 20th Century gangster saga, is still one of the most ambitious and brilliantly executed American films, a landmark work from one of Hollywood's top cinema eras.
