The story begins as "Don" Vito Corleone, the head of a New York Mafia "family", oversees his daughter's wedding with his wife Carmela. His beloved son Michael has just come home from the war, but does not intend to become part of his father's business. Through Michael's life the nature of the family business becomes clear. The business of the family is just like the head of the family, kind and benevolent to those who give respect, but given to ruthless violence whenever anything stands against the good of the family. Don Vito lives his life in the way of the old country, but times are changing and some don't want to follow the old ways and look out for community and "family". An up and coming rival of the Corleone family wants to start selling drugs in New York, and needs the Don's influence to further his plan. The clash of the Don's fading old world values and the new ways will demand a terrible price, especially from Michael, all for the sake of the family.

This is the best movie of all time. It has everything. Great acting, a great story, great music, great directing, great cinematography, great directing, great writing, great acting, and great directing. It's a movie that you will never forget. Even when you see it for the first time, you will have the same feelings that you had when you first saw it. You will see it again and again and again. I highly recommend this movie to anyone. You will never forget it. It is that good. I give it 10 stars out of 10.

I like how the film just sort of goes on and on and on. I really like that too. You can always tell a film is really good when they don't give you too much of a plot or a synopsis. Every scene and every action is what makes a good film. But that's not what this is. This is a slow burn, and it only picks up. I think the first 20 minutes or so of the film are a little slow, but the last half hour or so is really interesting. And the ending just blew me away. I haven't really seen much of the great movies that the Godfather has influenced so I don't know how to say this. But I think they are the best gangster films that there ever have been. Definitely one of my favorites.

I saw this movie on a television when I was in high school. It made such an impression on me that I started watching it again the next year. I was completely amazed by the incredible dialogue, the fact that the main character is a teenager, and the fact that it is not only a gangster movie. It's an amazing movie. It has everything that makes a great movie: Action, Romance, Drama, and most of all the acting. It's a great movie for teenagers to see because it has a great story and you have to think about it for the whole two hours. The movie does have a little bit of violence but it's not that violent and you don't see it until the very end. If you have not seen it you must.

When i was a young man I watched this movie many times and i loved it. I think that the story is great. The acting is great. I was a bit confused when i was watching it, but after i watched it again, i was not confused anymore. I would not recommend this movie to anybody, because it is not for everyone. But i think it is a great movie and it has a great message. I loved this movie so much, and i am going to watch it again.

Now as a big movie buff I am somewhat against the evolution of the gangster movie as it has gone on for so long. I mean there are films that are original and do not conform to the norm of these gangster movies. Goodfellas is one of those films and I love it. But back to the film, it is a good film that is the bible for all gangster movies. It has its flaws but it is still an enjoyable film. The Godfather is the true definition of gangster movies, the crime films of the 80's. There are two things that makes it an enjoyable film. The first is the story. The story is really well done, and the two great actors are the director and the actors who play the gangster characters. The second is the violence. The violence is not gratuitous and as I said before it is done tastefully. The violence is justified and if you are like me you will notice that after you have seen the film you will not have to think about it. I will not go into detail on the violence as the violence is done tastefully. The violence is realistic and the violence is good. The violence is like a type of morality tale in that it was done to some degree to entertain. So in conclusion gangster movies have always been a type of entertainment. The movie is just a classic and one that I will never forget. I rate this film a 9 out of 10

This is a good movie. It is good that we can see a Godfather in our life. I think it is important to know that what we are today can only be found in the movies. Good movie that everyone can watch.

When I first saw this film, I remember thinking that it was the best movie of all time. To date, I still believe that this is the best film of all time. The film is set in America and it covers the period between 1968 and 1972. From then on, we follow Michael Corleone (Ving Rhames), a crime kingpin who has done for the city of New York what he has been doing for the city of New Orleans. He starts out as a single father to a young girl and decides to keep his father's empire going after his death. His son is a boy that looks like a teenage boy, and doesn't have the physical attributes that Michael Corleone has. It is at this point in the film that we get to see how Michael Corleone deals with his son, and it is a very real portrayal. After all of the years, I have never seen a film that showed a father that was such a man. In the end, he has decided to stand up for what he believes in, and the audience is forced to go with him. The last thing I would like to say is that I am a big fan of the actors involved. Ving Rhames, Al Pacino, Sean Penn, Martin Sheen and Kevin Pollack, all did a great job in this film. The thing that I liked about this film was the realistic portrayal of a crime organization. It's like an action movie but the violence is never implied. It was like the actual time that was involved in the film. Overall, I think that this film is one of the greatest films of all time. It has been my favorite film ever since I first saw it in theaters, and I still watch it every once in awhile.

This movie is probably one of the most perfect movies ever made, I am going to watch it again and again. It is about the Italian Mafia and it shows us the inner and outer conflicts that make them strong and want to protect themselves, that they want to own all of the world and live in it, and that they don't want to be born in the wrong world. In this movie everything is perfect, in every scene it is shot very good and the acting is really good, we can feel what's going on when they talk and fight with each other, it is really a masterpiece, great production and actors and great music.This movie is very inspirational and there is a lot of stories that i want to tell to my friends and family, it is a must see movie. 10/10

I have seen this movie more than 10 times and i still love it. i really liked it the first time around. however i was very disappointed at the end when Marlon did not say goodbye to Don Vito Corleone. why was Don Vito so angry that he put Marlon in prison ? and why did Don Vito throw his temper tantrum when he told him that Marlon had died ?! it was all the fault of the director and it was very obvious that Marlon was not dead. his death at the end was not the fault of Don Vito Corleone. It was the fault of Marlon's father and the other mafia bosses who murdered Marlon's father and thus Marlon was actually murdered. It was very confusing and it took me a long time to understand why Marlon had to die at the end. Why didn't Marlon die when Don Vito Corleone was killed ?

When you watch a film like Godfather you do not get caught up in the whole story. You get caught up in the intense story. The intensity of this film, gives you that kick in the stomach. I watch this film again and again and I get really excited for every second of it. The way that the story is told, is just amazing. The movie really has everything to be watched on and you will not be able to get tired of it. You will be sad, but you will love it. I think that it is one of the best films of all time. The atmosphere that this film has is just amazing. The music is just amazing. I am really impressed with the music. I also like the way that the music is played throughout the film. It gives you a feeling of an extra feeling that you can not get from the way the film is made. I think that it is a great film and I hope that you all watch it and enjoy it as much as I did. I know that I do.

This movie is one of the best movies ever made, I love it. The plot is great, it is a story of how a family tries to survive in an unknown and chaotic city. The beginning is boring, but the rest of the movie is amazing. The acting of Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Robert Duvall is amazing. This movie is a must-see for all people who love movies, they won't be disappointed.

Of course, I must say that this film is the best film ever made, period. I didn't think it could get any better, but it did. With a very large cast, director, and entire production team, everything just went right. The characters in this film are more than just thugs and drug dealers, but the characters are people who are completely different from the one you'd normally expect to find in such a film. You may find yourself questioning yourself, wondering what you'd say if you were in their situation. The film is far more complex than the typical gangster movie, and I've never seen it get the same acclaim as it has. I give this film a 10/10.

This is one of the best films of all time. This film has everything. It is an epic movie of immense importance. This film has great cinematography, music, writing, direction, acting, etc. Everything is outstanding. However, the best film is American Pie 2. The story line is one of the best in the history of cinema. The acting is great. The writing is great. The directing is excellent. This film is a movie you must see!

The Godfather has become a cult classic, and an iconic movie of the 1980's. Its more than just a movie, it's a symbol, a powerful statement, and its a part of American history. The film was directed by Francis Ford Coppola, a film director who also worked on movies like Apocalypse Now, Casablanca, and the Godfather Part II. The film was adapted from the book of the same name, by Mario Puzo, and tells the story of Michael Corleone, who was known for his ruthless and corrupt ways, and his control over his family. As time passed, he's slowly become less violent and was slowly coming to a point where he no longer wanted to take over the family business anymore. In 1989, Michael and his family move to California and begin the business that he's always dreamed of. In the meantime, he and his wife, Kate, are married, but she has a secret. The story follows the five years of the Corleone's life. The first half of the film follows Michael's murder, the second half takes place after the family has moved to California and Michael is still on his own. This was the first time I've ever seen the film in black and white, which changed my view on the film. The first half of the film is so violent and is the same violence I experienced growing up watching it. The second half of the film starts to look more like a crime drama. The characters are interesting, the story is incredible, and it's a phenomenal movie that has influenced films like Hard Eight and Schindler's List. My rating: 10/10

Everyone says that this is one of the greatest movies ever made. But for me, this is not the best movie. The worst movie of all time. If you're looking for a film to watch, this isn't it. I was actually surprised by the amount of buzz this movie received. The film is extremely underrated and the critics seem to enjoy taking all the good points from the film and making it into a negative. This film is not a masterpiece, it's a flawed masterpiece. And it shows the film makers mistakes. I think the film makers should have used this movie to warn the public to not blindly follow their gut feelings on movies, not to get influenced by their friends. The film is nothing more than a collection of statements, actions and words. All of them have its' own level of meaning and what they mean is always up to debate. It's amazing how this movie doesn't get the recognition it deserves. The movie is a masterpiece. But it is not the greatest movie of all time. You can watch it over and over again and it will never be the greatest movie of all time.

The Godfather (1972) is a very powerful movie that is also very emotional. I've seen it more than ten times, but I still find myself thinking about it as I go. This movie is by far one of the greatest ever made. It is a great revenge film and is probably the best movie about mafia and family relationships. A good thing is that the movie isn't predictable and you can see the different developments in the characters. The cast is very good and you can really feel how good the actors are in the movie. In the end the movie is more about relationships and revenge. Also, the film isn't overlong and you can still keep on watching the movie because of it. The music is very good and very emotional. You should definitely watch this movie if you haven't seen it yet. I've watched it a couple of times, but it's still one of my favorites.

I think that the entire movie was based on a very long poem, which is not really a story, but an endless poem, which is the great poem that is the Godfather. The protagonist is talking about the godfather as if it were a story. Godfather is a great story about a man who made mistakes, but did not take revenge. When he does take revenge he has a little revenge, but he does not really achieve anything. This man is also a lover of his country, but he wants to do something more than that. The character of Godfather, through the story, is to imitate a good and a bad guy, and that is a story that I think we have all seen. I think this is the great poem, and I think that we all like it. I think that this poem is the greatest of all time.

I must admit, I'm a big fan of the godfather series, and the first two are my favorite. The third one is good too, but not quite as good as the first two. It's just a shame that the movie didn't live up to the hype. I'm still not sure if the movie is actually the best of the series or not. Maybe the story was too simple, the characters were too cliche, or the character development was just lame. Who knows? I guess I was expecting something much more epic and spectacular. I'm not saying that the movie is a terrible movie, but it certainly isn't a good one. I would rather see the fourth movie than watch this one again. I'd rather watch the fourth movie and watch the first two again than watch this one again. It's just a shame, because the first two movies were really good, but this one was just bad.
