The Godfather II - Movie Review

Michael Corleone has to protect his turf. There are increasing demands that lead to an attempt on his life. Michael has enough enemies inside the family and outside. But that's the nature of the business he is in. It is a business where one cannot trust anyone.

Robert Deniro plays young Vito Corleone who grows up and sets up the Genco Oil business with his two pals Clemenza and Tessio. He returns briefly to Sicily and takes revenge on the killer of his father and brother.

At the end Michael is alone. It's a fate worse than death. Al Pacino plays the brooding, lonely Don with the uneasy crown on his head superbly. Ranked among the greatest American films ever made.
