A belated review since I watched this in 2018 and now again as a prelude to watching the new Part 3 Coda. So I wanted to refresh.
I have to say, I can't get enough footage of these movies and for me this version is like eating more of your fave food even after you feel full. I just can't help it.

I can't mark this down for the inherant issues that some of the source material has, coz that's as good as you will get so by it's own merits, this is my go to version: PERIOD. If you want't it all, it's here and seamless.
Thanks

I look forward to part 2 (if I can get it).

This is the Godfather, can it be even better? Well, it seems it can and all the extended scenes feel as seamless as they should thanks to this editor's amazing work. Watch this and thank him for taking the time to recover those lost scenes that make a unique film even more amazing.

This was a nicely put together EE of The Godfather, but not without some flaws. I wasn't bothered by the lower quality deleted scenes, however I didn't think the logo removal worked. It was very obvious something was being covered up and there were annoying red pixels flickering. As well, there were a few imperfect audio transitions when adding scenes.

Overall a good Extended Edition, but could be improved.

This edit of The Godfather was a very enjoyable watch.....All scenes that are not in the original movie but were included in the 2012 HD AMC version of The Godfather Saga have been seamlessly inserted. Picture quality is consistent and all AMC logos and promo banners have been skilfully removed. All audio transitions to my ears seem smooth.

What i like best is that this is a extended version of the original 1972 movie which makes this edit a bit of a one off as it's the only extended edit i know that doesn't follow the Chronological path but stays true to the directors original vision.

This edit will not replace my originals just as the Saga doesn't but like the Saga it will sit nicely with my Godfather Collection and to be honest will probably be the version first out of the box....

Looking forward to Part 2......
