The Godfather: Part II

The Godfather: Part II ★★★½

I’ve rewatched “Godfather 1” more times than I can remember, this was my first time actually sitting down and watching “Part 2” on it’s own. Technically, I’ve already seen the HBO 7.5 hour “Epic” cut which plays scenes out chronologically and while that was exhausting, I gotta say it’s the way I prefer this story.

Young Vito/DeNiro’s scenes are most of the best parts of the movie, but the way the film cuts back and forth between the flashbacks felt like a way of padding out how boring the main story is.

Some sequels stand on their own but this is so dependent on the previous film, I really feel the 2 parts are best as a single viewing experience.
