Definitely the best sequel ever made. It has the style and substance of the first film, exploring Vito's back story from the novel and continuing the story of the Corleone family a few years after the last film ended. With powerhouse performances from every member of the cast, the film is certainly just as good as the first.

The main reason why it's called the best sequel ever is mostly because at its heart it's really a true continuation of the first film. It tells more of the story that you truly want to know more about and does it by showing you not only the present but also reaching into the past for the entire picture. I'm hesitant to say it's better than the first as in my mind they are both one film and neither can exist without the other.

I don't relate to people who say this is better than the first. It's good, sure, but not that good, not to the levels of part 1's.

I just watched it again for the second time, hoping to see something new that I missed the first time around—no, still the same feeling.

While I'm quite happy to say The Godfather deserves its place in the list of greatest films ever made, surely Part II is over-rated! I like its basic structure, the rise of a Don (Vito as a young man played by Robert DeNiro) contrasted with his son trying to keep hold of his father's empire in changing times. However, it meanders way too much, especially in the first part. I thought there were some interesting ironies set up in the Cuban sequences, but Coppola never does anything with them. The case before Congress comes out of nowhere, even if it is one of the more interesting parts. Jokes about oranges (which were death's herald in the first film) come off as indulgent fourth-wall breakers. Didn't work for me.

Anyone who thinks the Godfather movies are boring has attention deficit disorder, if the Godfather is boring then what the hell can you sit through and as to the people who dislike this I think that it is very close between them although I would pick this if someone had a gun to my head. I prefer the idea that both films tell one story and they aren't really separate films.
