The story spans the years from 1945 to 1955 and chronicles the fictional Italian-American Corleone crime family. When organized crime family patriarch Vito Corleone barely survives an attempt on his life, his youngest son, Michael, steps in to take care of the would-be killers, launching a campaign of bloody revenge.
This wasn't a bad movie by any means it was still pretty good. But calling it a "masterpiece" is way off base. I can see how it could have paved the way for other gangster movies to come along. Growing up I heard this movie referenced so many times. Finally at the age of 27 I saw it for the first time. It was pretty good but not what I had expected. I expected a movie that would have blown me away but I was far from blown away. I still believe that Casino is the best gangster movie out there. The beginning of the movie with the wedding was boring and not really necessary for the plot of the movie. If I were to re-watch it I would definitely have to skip the first 20 or 30 minutes. Overall not bad, but I expected a lot more. 7/10
WOW! I can't even review is film without saying that The Godfather is the most epic movie you will ever witness.
The violence is gruesome but is very beautiful and well shot.
The acting is flawless and the locations are the best ivé ever seen.
I am Italian so I would know if this is realistic and I got to say that it is but they could have got italian actors to play Vito of Michael.
But overall it is a perfect film and one that is my 9th favourite film of all time and it is a hard job to get into my favourite films list.
By the way the best gangstar film of all time is Goodfellas!
This movie has the greatest graphics I have ever seen in my life. Its about a Mafia gang that has been formed by an immigrant from Sicily. It is an epic adventure and the soundtrack is just amazing! You will never find a better movie my friends and you will not waste your time learning from it. Though it can be a little old and I do not recommend it to people younger than 25 years old. Sometimes it can be disturbing but yet very pleasant. So this is why I am giving it a 10/10.
