"The Godfather, Part II" is ranked by some to be better than the first Godfather movie. I like all three, and perhaps I consider the second as the better of the three.

As the film began, we see the childhood of Vito Corleone who fled Italy for America after witnessing a murder. Marlon Brando played the same character in the first Godfather movie. The film cuts to 1959 as Vito's son Michael Corleone is torn between his family and the mob.

What we see are two Godfathers from two periods in histroy as they laid out their rules diffrently. "The Godfather, Part II" is a film that sees itself as part of a photo album. The film looks back on the past while reflecting on the present.

My advice:See the first Godfather before "The Godfather, Part II, and III." Better yet, see all three. Now that's an offer you can't refuse.
