Movie – Catch Me If You Can [REVIEW] – The True Story Of A Real Fake

IMDB Rating: 8,1/10
Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama
Director: Steven Spielberg
Writer: Frank Abagnale Jr.
Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Christopher Walken


Leonardo DiCaprio is an actor who is now considered an actor who just looks rather than acting. Since the two films that practically overrated, Titanic and Romeo + Juliet, she has a lot of female fans who are crazy about him. However, if we look at other films including this movie, Leonardo DiCaprio is arguably the best of all. Like his acting in Inception and Shutter Island is one of those movies. And it also includes this movie, Catch Me If You Can.

“Catch Me If You Can,” tells the true story of a Frank Abagnale Jr. (Leonardo DiCaprio), known for being the greatest and biggest scam ever since his 19th birthday. Frank’s life was initially still living happily with his parents who were so intimate when he was 16 years old. But the debt that depressed his father required moving into a new apartment. That’s when his mother started cheating and divorcing. Frank finally chose to run away from home and start his new life as a con man. At the start of his escape, he making a fake check that initially always fails until he begins succeed to make a fake check and is very difficult to distinguish from the original. Living by changing his identity, an FBI named Carl Hanratty (Tom Hanks) who never know to give up after Frank even though he has also been deceived many times. The hunt between a cat and a mouse begins.

Different from others films like Titanic or Romeo + Juliet, Leonardo DiCaprio shows an action that can be spelled out very well in this movie. Described as a cheerful young man, he seems to act as a person in disguise. With his intelligent mind as a fraudster, he can make the FBI become a mess. Leonardo DiCaprio can balance Tom Hanks as someone who chased each other in different countries. Or you can say, Leonardo DiCaprio is better than Tom Hanks in this movie. Tom Hanks is described as a person who doesn’t like to joke but in his heart, he just wanted to catch Frank because that’s his life while Leonardo DiCaprio is the person who enjoys the chase.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonathan Brent, and Shane Edelman in Catch Me If You Can (2002)

Catch Me If You Can show something very detailed in this movie. Frank is someone who enjoys the life of his deception in various countries but all he wants is living with his family. Therefore, we always learn from the past in order to get the best results in the future. This film doesn’t have a dark impression like a thriller because this movie is not a thriller. The audience will see an exciting opening credit and think what will happen in this movie. With some soundtracks as if an undercover agent, Catch Me If You Can is a movie with a tense but fun impression to watch.


Overall, we don’t feel this movie has a duration of 140 minutes makes us want more in this movie. Although the duration is almost 2 hours and a half, this film always keeps his pace so as not to be boring to watch. Leonardo DiCaprio performed his acting really well here.

Movie – Baby Driver [REVIEW] – All You Need Is One Killer Track

IMDB Rating: 8,0/10
Genre: Action, Crime, Music
Director: Edgar Wright
Writer: Edgar Wright
Stars: Ansel Elgort, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm


Baby Driver is Edgar Wright’s most anticipated movie of this year. Although it has been running in theaters, I just recently watched this movie. Somehow, this movie is good but the rating is just too dramatic. I just don’t know what the other people think but I might just think it’s just because I only watched it once. Edgar Wright also previously made the films we known through Shaun of the Deat, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The World’s End, and others. This time, Edgar Wright made something new in this year.

“Baby Driver,” tells about a robber driver named Baby who always relies on a tap of music he plays in order to become a reliable driver. Just after she met his first sighting girl, Baby had discovered that his life had to be transformed into someone who had a normal life. Forced by his criminal boss, Baby along with his music must be able to survive in the criminal world he always encounters.

Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Flea, Edgar Wright, and Lanny Joon in Baby Driver (2017)

The actor who plays in this movie is also pretty good, especially who plays Baby. Previously, Ansel Elgort who plays Baby had also played in one of the famous films in 2014 titled, The Fault in Our Stars. In addition, he also had a role in the film Divergent series by Veronica Roth. There are Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm, Eiza González, and Lily James. Lily James also played Cinderella in the movie Cinderella in 2015. Although Kevin Spacey plays a role in this movie as well, he is not too flashy and may only be narrowed by Ansel Elgort so Kevin Spacey isn’t too special here. But, overall for Kevin Spacey is pretty good.

Kevin Spacey and Ansel Elgort in Baby Driver (2017)

Because the film is a musical genre, it is also true that the use of music is chosen carefully from the scenario. The music here is a very important thing in this film. Edgar Wright made something new this year, how an action film is accompanied by an existing music beat. The use of music in this film is very influential, especially the choreography is also very detailed. Starting from very small movements up to the scene of walking or gun pointing, all accompanied by music so suitable for each scene. We can be spelled out if the use of music here is also very carefully selected by the author.


Overall, this movie is good but the rating is too high. Honestly, I really did not see what the specialty of this movie. However, the acting and visual effects that are made here are amazing even though some of his screenplays is still lacking. This movie is very amazing to watch by everyone because this movie feels like new and has a unique idea.

Movie – Se7en [REVIEW] – Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Ways To Die

IMDB Rating: 8,6/10
Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery
Director: David Fincher
Writer: Andrew Kevin Walker
Stars: Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey


In this film, David Fincher invites his audience to go through with 2 detectives in a murder case with a unique motive. This second film from David Fincher is set places in a Metro city that always happens a criminal case every day. You will feel a sensation of how a mystery movie with a thriller genre that is very tense and full of a puzzle. With a background sound from Howard Shore’s, opening credit course features some disturbing pictures that are very annoying but make it interesting to see. Previously, David Fincher had directed Alien 3 movie from a series called Alien.

Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman in Se7en (1995)

“Se7en,” tells Detective Mills (Brad Pitt) was transferred in a case to help Detective Somerset (Morgan Freeman) deal with a serial murder case. In a first murder, a prosecutor was murdered by leaving Greed’s writings. Until the next case, Somerset investigated a house of previous homicide victims and found Gluttony’s writing inside the house. The facts revealed that Somerset believes that this serial killing will continue in the future even though he also always gave up when he got a point that could end the case.

Se7en (1995)

With the cinematography created in this film, the atmosphere of the place in this movie has a very dark impression with combined by a weather that often rains make that looks like a cursed city for its many criminals who always happen. I can say that this movie is not like the movies of the 90s, even this looks like a movie that existed in the year 2010’s. Screenplay written in this movie is also one of why this film is very interesting to watch that take a theme story from Seven Deadly Sins. The audience will be asked how a puzzle that often appears will be so curious when watched.

This film also takes a story material that is always associated with the number 7. In this film, we will often see a concept that often links literature works, books about murder like In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. This is what makes this film reinforces the impression of the existing thriller. Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt are the actors who build the atmosphere of this movie and getting better. Unexpectedly if they both play together in this movie, nothing is too prominent because they both play a balanced role.

Brad Pitt and Kevin Spacey in Se7en (1995)

If it is associated with other David Fincher movies, many say that this film is a bit reminiscent of a thriller film titled Gone Girl. Although I have never fully watched Gone Girl, some say that these two films are almost identical let alone the psychopaths that exist in both these movies always make the audience was surprised because of it. Kevin Spacey that play in this movie also great that before he cast some thriller genre film entitled The Usual Suspect.

If you see the ending of this film, Fincher makes the audience tense because it makes the ending so dramatic and the ending which is a plot-twist. Mills will be in a situation where he will win or lose by the game of the psychopath made. It’s a bit hard to explain in detail but this will impact the spoiler for those who haven’t watched it yet. But, I will admit that the ending in this movie is made great and make us admire the ending.


Overall, I just didn’t think that this movie was made in the 90’s. If I watch it again, this movie just looks like the movies now look more fresh and smooth. Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt are two great actors in this movie. Do you like the movie made by David Fincher? You guys will love this movie. In fact, thriller movie fans also know that this movie is good to watch.

Movie – Spotlight [REVIEW] – The True Story Behind The Scandal That Shook The World

IMDB Rating: 8,1/10
Genre: Crime, Drama, History
Director: Tom McCarthy
Writer: Josh Singer
Stars: Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams


It’s very unbelievable how this film gets so many awards and honors in 2015. Tom McCarthy has also done some great movies with The Cobbler comedy in 2014. But, this movie has a very bad impression when Adam Sandler is very over acting. Fortunately, McCarthy can each make this great film that results can’t be denied.

Michael Keaton, Brian d'Arcy James, Mark Ruffalo, John Slattery, and Rachel McAdams in Spotlight (2015)

“Spotlight,” based on a true story that refers to the big name of the elite journalist team of the famous newspaper ‘The Boston Globe’ who is in charge of investigating scandalous issues in the United States. In 2002, America, there was a case of the biggest sexual abuse scandal in Boston that eventually involved several priests and the Catholic church.

Maybe in the early 10-15 minutes, we haven’t been able to digest this movie what the meaning of this movie and what the purpose. But, finally, neatly arranged after in those minutes and everything became very clear and orderly. Tom McCarthy makes this movie that produces a very solid and well-crafted story. Although this film is about an investigation with a provocative theme and carries the names of Catholic churches, the film is also packed very intensely. The spotlight is a team that has a tremendous dedication in search of evidence and guidance. It also took months because collecting such evidence wasn’t easy including setting up a complicated bureaucratic system let alone interviewing victims who had fear of his past.

Rachel McAdams in Spotlight (2015)

McCarthy managed to create a very interesting story about a thriller that brings several journalistic and investigative themes. The plot of the story is well preserved and every actor who plays so well and brilliantly brings their own roles without being exaggerated and prominent among them, whether leaders or subordinates because they are so important. The actors are also very reliable like Mark Ruffalo who cast some popular films such as The Avengers, Now You See Me and Shutter Island. Michael Keaton also originally cast the movie like Birdman, RoboCop, and the film is very well known people namely Batman in 1989.

Stanley Tucci and Mark Ruffalo in Spotlight (2015)

A very thick film with Drama elements is also very good especially when they are looking for a truth about implications with their own personal side. The subjects they face are quite heavy, such as having to separate where the personal ego with the professionalism of work. Hence, the results are highly relevant and natural which also doesn’t seem complicated to understand.


Overall, this film that many bring an award is very inspiring to watch. McCarthy also makes a movie in a way that is so elegant and very memorable. The Very good ending from a movie with a very supportive actor. This film is highly recommended for everyone especially for adults who into a journalist.

Movie – The Godfather: Part III [REVIEW] – All The Power On Earth Can’t Change Destiny

IMDB Rating: 7,6/10
Genre: Crime, Drama
Director: Francis Ford Coppola
Writer: Mario Puzo
Stars: Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, Andy Garcia


Warning, this review will contain a spoiler!!!

The Godfather: Part III is arguably the worst sequel of all “The Godfather” series. But, that’s how many people say that. To me, The Godfather: Part III may also be arguably losing power and some other elements compared to the prequel series. The Godfather: Part III is also going to focus on the story of sorrow experienced by Michael and also some romance stories that exist in The Godfather.

“The Godfather: Part III,” tells about Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) who can no longer continue his business. Therefore, Michael can only regret his actions for killing innocent people including his brother, Fredo. His business was entrusted by Joey Zasa (Joe Mantegna) in New York and to restore his reputation, Michael often did a charity run by Vito Andolini, his father.

Godfather 3

Of all the Godfather series I’ve watched so far, The Godfather: Part III is arguably the most depressing and saddest movie ever. In this movie, Michael looks like someone who doesn’t respect himself and must regret his sins in front of the archbishop. Michael has regretted his sins for killing the people he cares about. And also, Michael must have a very sad death to die alone with his dog. The Godfather: Part III is also the last series of the trilogy of The Godfather. Actually, Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppola ever had a planned to make the part IV. But, the film never made itself because Mario Puzo died.

Mary

Al Pacino acting arguably more looks like a mafia because of the previous series he just gets a little performance. One of them, there is a scene that is required for Al Pacino to cry for hearing the song “Speak Softly Love.” While listening to this song, Michael cried because he remembered his first wife who died tragically. In addition to Al Pacino, Sofia Coppola acting who is also the son of the director Francis Ford Coppola looks good.

Vincent

The Godfather: Part III focuses on romance, especially the relationship between Vincent with Mary and Michael with Kay. Therefore, The Godfather: Part III lost some touch of mafia elements, unlike the previous film. However, this doesn’t change the fact because of The Godfather: Part III is the exact same film from the previous film as well.


Overall, although the film was only nominated for an Oscar in 1991, this film looks good in terms of the story. Mario Puzo has created a magic touch on all of The Godfather series. Fans of Mafia, Mario Puzo, Francis Ford Coppola, or all of the circles must watch all the series from The Godfather.

Movie – Who Am I [REVIEW] – No System Is Safe

IMDB Rating: 7,6/10
Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery
Director: Baran bo Odar
Writer: Jantje Friese
Stars: Tom Schilling, Elyas M’Barek, Wotan Wilke Möhring


CLAY

What do you think about what is the coolest kind villain ever? If I was asked a question like that, then I would answer ‘Hacker.’ I don’t know what your answer is but why must ‘Hacker’? Why not psychopath or rob with a mask? I think psychopath and robbers are cool but nothing who can beat the action of the hackers. They think that the world is in the grip of the real world and their actions always not seen behind the screen but only with a laptop or smartphone, they can do whatever they want.

“Who Am I,” tells about Benjamin (Tom Schilling), someone who has a very bleak past. His father escaped when he was born and his mother had four personalities so she committed suicide when he was eight years old. Benjamin lived alone with his grandmother who was then a teenager and his grandmother suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Ben is someone who is very closed because he’s never considered by the environment around him. Because of his introverted personality, he doesn’t even dare to say hello to Marie (Hannah Herzsprung) the girl he likes as a child. Behind his bleak, Ben is covertly secretly into a superhero on the internet. He is someone who is very good at reading machine language until he meets with Max (Elyas M’Barek), Stephan (Wotan Wilke Möhring), and Paul (Antoine Monot Jr.) who is a powerful hacker.

 

No System Is Safe

C.L.A.Y.

 

This movie is a cyber mafia movie with stories and plot-twist that really amaze the audience. This film shows how a person has a very dark past, someone who bullies on the internet, brought us to the world of ‘deep web’, and hackers who always just do the trick to the audience.

Of all the hacker movies I watch, this movie is a very good movie from scratch because we can’t predict it. The director of this film, Baran Bo Odar takes us in a matter that moves into a mind game. With endings filled with various Plot-twist, it will be hard to guess how the end of the movie is. Although like that, this film doesn’t really make the audience to think hard.


Overall, this movie is very obliged you to watch especially for those of you who really like the world of computers or hacking. Tom Schilling and his friends are good acts but not as good as other movies. This movie I recommend to all of you for those who like Thriller or Mystery.

Movie – Premium Rush [REVIEW] – Ride Like Hell

IMDB Rating: 6,5/10
Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller
Director: David Koepp
Writer: John Kamps
Stars: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon, Dania Ramirez

How about a movie that’s about someone who’s being chased by the police and using a bicycle? Perhaps, it is very rare to get a movie like that. But this movie says “no”. Someone who used a bicycle while he was chased again by police on the highway. Moreover, if riding fixie bikes are pretty hard. I once rode a fixie bike and it was pretty hard for a regular bike. Moreover, if the speed can be up to 5-6 gear.

Hero

Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a bike courier in Manhattan. A bicycle courier service is needed in Manhattan because an item can deliver up very quickly and immediately. Wilee is very different from other couriers. If some bike couriers use bikes with 5 to 6 gear with brakes, Wilee prefers Fixie bikes with gear 1 without brakes but has a great speed. Passing urban Manhattan at incredible speed, Wilee suddenly receives a mysterious package requested by his ex-friend named Nima (Jamie Chung). Wilee was even being chased by a corrupt policeman named Bobby Monday (Michael Shannon) to hand his an envelope.

This film is very clear because it focuses on the Thriller genre filled with scenes of the chase. The only difference, the theme he raised about a bicycle courier who was chased by the police. When compared to fixie bikes with mountain bikes, I better choose mountain bikes. The fixie bike requires us to pedal the bike incessantly, while the mountain bikes are not. In this film, Joseph Gordon-Levitt shows his skill how a person is pedaling a bicycle with wind speeds to avoid using brakes.

Wilee

This film has a very dark impression and very bleak like other Thriller movies. Cinematography used is High-key lighting, style with very bright and bright depiction. Due to the high-key lighting, the aura of the Thriller film is not felt at all. However, David Koepp managed to set the course of the film to be very tense for the audience. The use of the camera is also very smooth when following the fast speed of movement Wilee so that the audience will be carried as if was on a bicycle as well.

Premium Rush uses a nonlinear storyline. The plot is what makes this film also has a little thriller sensation. The audience will initially be shown a scene where Wilee crashed into a taxi and was badly injured. Since then, the story will reverse how Wilee got caught in the event. The storyline of this film is very similar to Reservoir Dogs or other non-linear films. But I can say this movie is very similar to Reservoir Dogs.


Car

Overall, for you Action-Thriller fans I would suggest watching this movie. Especially for fans who really like the nonlinear film. The film is also arguably still has shortcomings, especially the storyline that looks simple. However, his cinematography masks the deficiency. So, this movie is very interesting and entertaining to watch.

Movie – Scarface [REVIEW] – The World Is Yours

IMDB Rating: 8,3/10
Genre: Crime, Drama
Director: Brian De Palma
Writer: Oliver Stone
Stars: Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer, Steven Bauer


I played the game before on PlayStation 2’s, Scarface: The World Is Yours. The game model is exactly same as Grand Theft Auto. However, this is more exciting than Grand Theft Auto. Although I was finished, I still play it even on my PC. The movie also I watched when childhood. However, when compared with the game is very different. Scarface: The World Is Yours is a sequel to the film.

Tony

“Scarface,” tells about the year 1980 in May. Fidel Castro has just opened a port of Mariel in Cuba. His goal is to gather his members with his relatives in America. Recorded 125,000 Cuban refugees arrived in Florida and among them 25,000 criminals. Antonio ‘Tony’ Montana (Al Pacino) and his friend Manny Ribera (Steven Bauer) get permission to stay in Miami after successfully killing Rebenga (Roberto Contreras) for Omar Suarez (F. Murray Abraham).

Omar then asks Tony to trade cocaine with a Columbia merchant and Tony manages to do so. Tony brings the money and cocaine at once. Tony and Manny then had the opportunity to meet Frank Lopez (Robert Loggia), a drug dealer and Omar’s boss. Tony also fell in love with Elvira Hancock (Michelle Pfeiffer), a Frank woman. Frank eventually recruited Tony and Manny to become his members.

Movies mafia indeed no longer underestimated its existence. Especially the actor is Al Pacino. Al Pacino acting in this movie is very cool. Describes a very arrogant, cunning, evil, and criminal nature. Al Pacino is the main actor in this movie. So do the supporting actors like Steven Bauer and others. However, Al Pacino is the main star. Al Pacino was interviewed in another talk show. He was asked, “Who is the character of the film you have ever played and which one of you favorite the most?” Al Pacino replied, “I prefer to play Tony from Scarface.”

Although this is a classic movie, this film portrays a real human is. Tony is described as a greedy person and always wants something more. Scarface shows that no matter what human behavior, humans are still blessed to love those around them. However, Tony here just assumes that all can be solved with money.

Machine Gun

This film is purely a lot of the ‘F’ word in it. Probably countless, similar to the Goodfellas movie that many say ‘F’. However, this film teaches us that money never solves the problem. In fact, the happiness and togetherness can’t be bought with money. The happiness is only in the hearts of every human being, however our circumstances and wherever happiness is always there and never replaced with money.


Overall, this film in all aspects is very good indeed. Starting from the theme of lifting drug dealers and a little mafia theme until the lessons we can take from watching this movie. Al Pacino is the star of this movie.

Movie – Pulp Fiction [REVIEW] – I Don’t Smile For Pictures

IMDB Rating: 8,9/10
Genre: Crime, Drama
Director: Quentin Tarantino
Writer: Roger Avary
Stars: John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson


During this time, only a few Quentin Tarantino movies I watched like Inglourious Basterds, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill Vol. 01, and this movie is also included. But, this is a masterpiece made by an intelligent director. How?

Travolta & Jackson

“Pulp Fiction,” tells about of two hitmen (Samuel L. Jackson & John Travolta), Mafia boss (Ving Rhames) and his wife (Uma Thurman), a boxer (Bruce Willis), and two novice robbers (Tim Roth & Amanda Plummer).

Actually, it’s very short to explain what’s going on in this movie. In fact, the description is too short to write. But, what makes this film so masterpiece? For some reason, this movie won a lot of awards like Academy Awards USA in category “Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen,” Golden Globes USA in category “Best Screenplay – Motion Picture,” BAFTA Awards in category “Best Actor in a Supporting Role,” and “Best Screenplay – Original.” This film also beat the best film, Forrest Gump and many people are mad at that fact. I feel sorry after for 23 years just found out if there is a movie like this in that year. Same goes with Forrest Gump, The Shawshank Redemption, and other classic movies.

John

One of the uniqueness of this film is the plot of the film that runs in nonlinear. Just like Memento, Pulp Fiction is divided into several parts and runs in a row. However, the film isn’t so confusing to watch. In general, Pulp Fiction is only divided into three parts. This movie seemed to cause the prejudice to be a sense of shock but amazing.

The characters in this movie look very common in general like hitmen, a mafia boss, the mafia wife, robbers, and boxers. However, the script created by Roger Avary and Quentin Tarantino incorporates elements of dark-comedy in each character. Like a boxer rushed by a mob boss but that mob boss was kidnapped by gay, a careless assassin, a mercenary who often quotes some gospel, mafia wife who has a hobby-dancing, so much more. Who knows how many dark-comedy’s in this movie. Quentin Tarantino also didn’t hesitate to feature many famous actors such as John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, and Tim Roth.

Uma Thurman

This movie isn’t like other gangster movies. When compared to the famous gangster movies like The Godfather, Goodfellas, Scarface, or others, you’re wrong. Pulp Fiction isn’t like a gangster movie that many scenes shoot each other. Precisely, Pulp Fiction brings a lot of cool dialogue and some kick-ass. This film is very difficult to explain. Maybe, you better watch it so maybe you can understand.


English, Motherfucker

Overall, if you want to see a scene where the main character performs a full adrenaline or visual effect or something like that, Pulp Fiction doesn’t show something like that. Pulp Fiction is a masterpiece that shows the ins and outs of gangsters with very different perspective. This film is also included in the film that affects the world of cinema.

Movie – The Godfather: Part II [REVIEW] – The Next Godfather

IMDB Rating: 9,0/10
Genre: Crime, Drama
Director: Francis Ford Coppola
Writer: Mario Puzo
Stars: Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Robert Duvall

Warning, this review will contain a spoiler!!!


In addition to the game on PlayStation 2, I’ve also played The Godfather series on PC and it’s fun. This film is a sequel to The Godfather first, the film is adapted from the novel trilogy Mario Puzo. In this sequel, Michael replaced his father’s position as Don. The sequel will also tell two stories at once that is Vito’s childhood until he became a Don and problems facing Michael since becoming Don. In addition, some characters like Frankie and Clemenza also still exist in The Godfather II.

Robert De Niro

In 1901 at Sicilia, Vito Andolini lost his father and brother who was killed by Don Ciccio. Vito’s mother asks Don Ciccio to take care of Vito but Don Ciccio refuses because afraid that Vito has a very deep revenge until adult. Don Ciccio then kills Vito’s mother and tries to capture Vito but Vito then manages to escape to New York and change his name to Vito Corleone. As an adult, Vito (Robert De Niro) lives in a simple house with his wife and son ‘Sonny’. Vito works at an Abbandando bakery. Don Fanucci was a blackmailer and asked Vito to do a job.

In 1958, Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) held his first celebration party for his son, Anthony. In the previous sequel, Vito received many requests for help from all his friends during Connie’s wedding. Unlike Vito, Michael actually accepts more unpleasant problems. Connie (Talia Shire) comes to Michael after long gone and plans to remarry. Connie’s wife, Carlo died of being killed by Michael himself for treason in the previous movie. Michael disagrees with Connie’s wishes and asks Connie to pay more attention to her children. From here Connie looks really hate Michael who can’t replace his father figure.

In this film, the actions of Mafia murder more and crueler than the prequel. Michael shows a leader who is very cruel and doesn’t hesitate to kill his enemy even the person who betrayed and his brother also killed himself by Michael.

The storyline of The Godfather II looks more complex than the first film. Supporting characters in it are also reproduced, forget the main character and lost itself for no reason. One of them was Fredo’s betrayal and a trial suddenly ensnared by Michael. I think the first series is better and the story is very shaping compared to both of these series. For fans of The Godfather will also think so.

Al Pacino’s acting is actually not too special in this movie compared to the first film. In fact, Marlon Brando is the one who is very similar to playing a Don. When compared with Robert De Niro, Robert’s acting is more prominent in the appeal with Al Pacino. Naturally, Robert De Niro won the Oscar 1975 with the category “Best Actor In A Supporting Role.”

You Broke My Heart

Overall, The Godfather II is still the perfect film. The shortcomings cover the advantages that exist in this movie.
