The Irishman follows Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro) as he gets sucked into the world of crime. He becomes a hit-man who is stuck trying to keep peace between his two friends, Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino) and Russell Bufalino (Joe Pesci).
The Godfather and The Godfather Pt. 2 are iconic films that has influenced dozens of films since it was released, some say that it is the greatest film of all time. This is my first time seeing both films and while I already knew some of the story bits and seen some clips, there’s nothing like watching the whole film. And I don’t really know what I can say that hasn’t already been said.
The Godfather surrounds the Corleone crime family, with Vito (Marlon Brando) as the head. His youngest son, Michael (Al Pacino), reluctantly joins the mafia after his father gets hurts buts gets sucked in too deep and takes his father’s place. Part 2 picks up with Michael trying to maintain the family business and flashes back to Vito as a young immigrant coming to America, this time played by Robert De Niro.
