Synopsis:
As Michael Corleone rises up the crime ladder and starts to take over organised crime in the gambling rackets of Las Vegas and Nevada in the late Fifties, advised by his trusted right hand man Tom Hagen, he remembers his father, Don Corleone, and how he too gained respect within the Mafia. Regarded as a trustworthy foot soldier, Don Corleone proved himself in Sicily in the mid-1920s before before being sent to New York. Involved with low level numbers rackets, Don Corleone proves his worth when he coldbloodedly executes a rival neighbourhood gangster, opening the way for his own ascendancy within the family. Meanwhile Michael is facing problems from the Nevada Gaming Board, the FBI and the troubles within his own family, including his rocky second marriage.
Review:
Longer than the original The Godfather and running nearly three and a half hours, Francis Ford Coppola triumphantly continues the Godfather saga with a film every bit as good as the first, if not surpassing it in terms of superb performances, including a young Robert De Niro, mesmerising as the young Don Corleone, already a ruthless killer in his twenties. The alternation between Pacino's dealings with the gambling state of Nevada is dovetailed with De Niro's gradual rising through the ranks in Twenties' New York. A brilliant sequel with not a weak performance in the entire film. Winner of six 1974 Oscars including a well deserved Best Supporting Actor for De Niro, Best Picture and a nod to Nino Rota for Best Score.
