Godfather DVD Collection
Legendary Director Francis Ford Coppola and Paramount to the delight of fans the world over have releases a truly amazing box set of the legendary Godfather film series.
Lovingly restored by American Zoetrope under the watchful eye of Coppola the set is a true marvel that bursts from the screen in amazing picture quality and 5.1 Surround Sound that produces a superior viewing experience. I first saw “The Godfather” on VHS years ago, and the sharpness of the sound and picture of the DVD adds another level of enjoyment to this epic story.
The films tell the story of the Corleone family and follows there world of crime. As the family patriarch (Marlon Brando) transfers power to his reluctant son which in turn causes a series of events to unfold that set the epic saga of love, power, and violence into motion. The incredible cast features Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, Rober DeNiro, and Andy Garcia which makes the series the most star powered trilogy in film history.
All three films in the series are contained in the collection, and Coppolla has recorded full commentaries for each film. The set also includes a disc of bonus materials which includes a wealth of bonus features including additional scenes, and alternate opening for “Godfather III”, as well as a great featurette on filming locales for the films as well as segments on the music of the series and much more.
With superior storytelling, acting, and this lovingly crafted set, this is not only a must own for fans of the series, it is also an ideal gift for the upcoming holidays and a must own.
5 stars out of 5.
