I know, shame on me right? But hey, better late than never. I just saw it last night and it didn't disappoint whatsoever.

Had just finally seen 'Goodfellas' last weekend as well.

Yea mad late but at least you seen it, part 3 is disappointing but part 2 is great just as good as the first.

You should watch Casino and Once Upon a Time in America too it's starring Robert De Niro as this Jewish gangster in NY during prohibition is pretty good too.

Never to late to see one of the greatest movies of all time.
Congrats and glad you enjoyed.
Like NYC said above, Part 2 is amazing, 3 is weak.
Whats great to think about after seeing part 2 and knowing more about the drug import empires is Scarface is the extension of what all the families talked about when negotiating the sale of meth amphetamines and the affect their decisions in that meeting had for years to follow.

1st 2 Godfathers might be the best movies ever made.Btw in Goodfellas the "you are a funny guy" scene in the restaurant wasn't in the script; Joe Pesci made it up on the spot,but Scorcese kept the camera rolling anyway.

There is a version available that puts the first 2 films in chronological order. Kind of cool. Starts with the young Vito in Italy.

The third one is not very good. However, if you ever take the time to research the back story behind it, it makes it more interesting. There are rumors that the Pope who preceded JP II was murdered, and there were issues with corruption at the Vatican bank.

Read that stuff and then watch III, and you might find yourself at least mildly entertained.

Overrated IMO
There's a lot of better mafia movies out there including Casino and Goodfellas.
only Kobe can stop Kobe.
