I remember, as a kid, discovering the worn out VHS of Godfather, Chronological saga on my uncle's shelf. The tape was eventually, invaded by ants, who I guess had nothing better to do, than to ruin my uncle's tape collection... Many tapes that I loved to watch each time I visit, were ruined this way, "Streets of Fire".... you bastards, do not touch my Diane Lane!!! Bermuda Triangle movie from the 70s, that to this day, I cannot track copy of... Stand-up shows, that I don't think were ever release on any other format... anyway....
The chronological edit was always my preferred version of this story, and for decades now, my wish was to see them again, in this way.
What Wraith did with this one looks to be even a step further, and he produced even better extended version, than the one I remember.
I've lost sleep and threads on way simpler edits and projects over the years, having to restart from scratch, many a times, I can only imagine the amount of planning to tackle this monster! And I cannot be more glad you did it, buddy!
Now, I can fulfill my wife's wish to see the Godfather movies, the way I believe they should be seen. Thank you!

There is a broad consensus out there that the Godfather trilogy are masterpieces (mostly the first two). Can you really improve upon the experience? Well, I found out with this edit the answer is a resounding yes.

I have read great things about Wraith’s edits from these reviews. I was debating with myself whether to watch his extended editions of the movies or go with the Opus edits. After watching Don Vito’s Opus, I know I made the correct decision.

Watching the story of young Don Vito first really helped flesh out his character. Getting to know his tragic early life right away really enhances his character and makes him more relatable when we fast forward to him as a senior citizen. It really added value to the story, as in the movie we are told a few times that he softened in his older age. It flows more logically when we know what he was like as a young man. I was initially concerned with this placement as I liked the juxtaposition as flashbacks comparing young Vito to Michael in Godfather 2. However, I changed my mind and like this much better.

Nearly all the deleted scenes were nice additions that I believed really helped with character development. Getting to see a bit more of Michael’s early foolishness helps contrast with his change of heart to join the family business. I also liked seeing early on how Sonny was told to restrain himself from going after Connie’s husband.

From a narrative and enjoyment perspective, this is an obvious 10/10. I acknowledge that I am not the best qualified to actually rate anything about the edit itself as I do not have the eyes nor ears for that. Nonetheless, the edit appeared visually good and I did not notice any audio issues.

Great job on this edit. Anybody who wants a better Godfather experience must watch this. I will be moving on to the sequel. As I am pressed for time, it will take a few days to watch like it took with this one, but I am confident it will be worth the effort.

:1. Really like the additional Locations and years in titles.
2. No opening paragraphs in GF 2 flashbacks was good, as we learn enough in the opening scenes the gist of Don Vito's father and background.
3. Visual clarity was excellent.
4. Transitions between major flashback scenes were very well timed.
5. The added Subtitles were recognizable by their slightly lighter color. It was especially nice to see these in the restaurant scene.
6. Placement of the intermission was great, which I chose as a good break point to do some other things and return.
7. Closing titles had some names of GF 2 characters not seen yet. But to alter that would probably require rebuilding the subtitles completely from scratch, not an easy chore..
