  Many original scenes cut out - disappointing

| | See all Happy1980's reviews (1)

I love the Godfather films but am extremely disappointed having seen the original cinematic version - in cinema and video release - that Coppola has cut down all three significantly to reduce viewing time in this so called "restoration". The beauty of an epic is that people like them long - Parts I and II are roughly three hours each but have been reduced to around two hours or so. Yes the scenes are available in extras as "additional scenes" but, excuse me, they were the original scenes and it's not the same as seeing them in flow during the actual film. The worst thing about this is I was looking forward to seeing the films on blue ray, remastered etc and in normal, full length. It appears now following the "restoration" that all subsequent versions are the same as this - and you cannot buy the improved film (picture quality/sound wise) in its normal length. Disgrace. My advice to people who know something about this great trilogy is don't buy this version - buy any version which is pre-restoration. You might not get improved picture quality, sound etc but at least you get the full, uninterrupted film. Coppola should hang his head in shame for this so called "restoration". PS this is not an exaggeration. Pure fact.

  Almost perfect

The first film in the trilogy is my all-time favourite film. The sequel manages not to disgrace it by being almost as good, and some say it is even better. The third film is in my opinion a good final installment, but it is over-long. I couldn't give this collection less than 5 stars though. Buy it for the first two and conside the third a free gift.

  Awesome, gripping and a true master piece

This film is definately one of my favourites for several reasons.. first off, Marlon brando is flawless, utterly gripping, he brings swave and charm, great emotion and fantastic deminour that brings this film to life, Al pacino also brings a great performance, the whole fim is well crafted, the story keeps you gripped to the screen, the violence and action is second to none, the whole film is awesome, a must, must, must see do not miss the chance to see this *****

  A "Family" Film

When I ordered the Godfather as an avid film fan I had heard of great it was. So when I sat down to watch it I thought it was going to a stereotypical portrayal of the Mob, but its not. It's not about gangsters and people getting whacked,its about a family, and there struggle. The greatest film ever made is an understatement

  The Greatest

| | See all Footzyrama's reviews (31)

The Godfather is highly regarded as being one of the greatest films ever made and the sequel delivered just as much. Marlon Brando portrays a head of a gangster household flawlessly throughout The Godfather. Throw in Al Pacino as one of his Sons and hosts of other superb actors and you have a must own.

Even though this film was made 38 years ago, it is still the greatest gangster film that has ever been made.

  The Godfather Trilogy

Chronicling the lives of the Corleone family, Parts I and II are a true master class in film making. Part III, unfortunately, never quite reaches the same heights, but still adds a satisfactory if unneeded end to the trilogy. What really shines through out is the cast, from Brando to Pacino to De Niro, there are few films that can match this calibre on screen. Along with the remastered prints, included are a wealth of extra features, making this not only a truly indispensable set, but great value too.
