Pros:A impressive cinematographic near epic.

Cons:The dark mood development dragged out too long. (200 minutes).

Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot.

See attachment to my e-mail to Bruguru@Gmail.com

The two tapes come with the following inscription on the box:

' ...CONTINUES THE SAGA OF TWO GENERATIONS OF SUCCESSIVE POWER WITHIN THE CORLEONE FAMILY."

The zipping back and forth via the cinematic time machine can be disorienting. It is a type of chain of thought or mnemonic catanation allowing the viewer to read the mind of Al Pacino, AKA Michael Corleone. The make-up department must have been on some kind of chemical enhancement.

If the viewer is not troubled by the memory flash-backs, and I know most reviews praise this production, this cinema scans the life of Michael Corleone (MC) from babyhood to his final scene. This hints about some of the turmoil in the mind of MC. In spite of all his earthly possessions etc. he did lose his wife and though he kept his two little children (one of his three died, and I won't tell you how), he seemed to evaluate the net worth of his need for making 'business decisions' which forced him to eliminate tons of competition and rivals.

The implied moral of the story in the last scene is that crime does not pay.
