JackBurton1234’s review published on Letterboxd:
Watched Numerous Times
I do prefer this to the first one.
Now preference really doesn’t matter with these films there both masterpieces and classics.
Al Pacino is amazing.
But Diane Keaton during her scene in the hotel near the end steals the show.
When the twist is revealed with Kay I literally just paused the movie and my jaw dropped.
Because you don’t see it coming.
John Cazale also gets a chance to shine as Fredo.
Robert De Niro as young Vito is great.
But this movie goes darker places than the original Godfather went.
And once again the montages of things being settled are amazing.
And the direction in the scene with the fireworks and the lights are amazing.
But once again dialogue is the stand out here.
The story is what you’re here for.
The direction is amazing but the story just knocks it out of the park.
And that last scene had me in tears because you know it’s coming and when it finally hits it’s just tragic.
But my favorite scene in the film will always be the hotel scene with Kay and Micheal near the end.
Another film you’ve definitely already seen.
Essential viewing for everyone.
