Summary=The Godfather "Don" Vito Corleone is the head of the Corleone mafia family in New York. He is at the event of his daughter's wedding. Michael, Vito's youngest son and a decorated WW II Marine is also present at the wedding. Michael seems to be uninterested in being a part of the family business. Vito is a powerful man, and is kind to all those who give him respect but is ruthless against those who do not. But when a powerful and treacherous rival wants to sell drugs and needs the Don's influence for the same, Vito refuses to do it. What follows is a clash between Vito's fading old values and the new ways which may cause Michael to do the thing he was most reluctant in doing and wage a mob war against all the other mafia families which could tear the Corleone family apart
runtime=2 Hours 55 M
When I first went on this site, I was so excited what the top movie was I nearly exploded. When I saw that this prestigious position was taken by the Coppola classic, The Godfather, I was like “Ah, not what I expected, but it seems deserving.” When I actually rented it out in the hope that it would be the best movie ever, I was quite shocked. What I’m trying to say people is DO NOT expect it to be the best movie ever made, because it is far from it. It takes SO MUCH out from the original book that you’ll wonder if the book and the movie are written by the same person.
That’s not to say this movie is bad, but rather it misses out on so much from one of the greatest books I’ve ever read. Where is the Adventures of Johnny and Nino! Where is the vaginal surgery? Why isn’t Doctor Jules in this movie? Why the hell did they make Tessio insignificant? Why didn’t they let you know more about Paulie Gatto? The only reason you’ll want to see this is if you are a mob movie fanatic or so you will understand the 2nd movie more (which by the way is in every respect better. It is a good movie, but there are many flaws such as the acting quality, the way that you must practically smash your windows because your turning the volume up so high to understand what they’re saying among other things. Good movie, but not #1.
