The Godfather Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

It is important to note that The Godfather and its sequels will not offer viewers anything resembling the high definition eye candy that films such as Saawariya or I, Robot showcase. This is classic cinema, and it looks like classic cinema, too, on this Blu-ray set. As such, this trilogy looks marvelous, a tribute to the films and a treat for the fans who saw them theatrically, or who are privileged to see them again or for the first time in this definitive edition that captures the spirit and feel that director Francis Ford Coppola himself meticulously created and now approves as a wonderful restoration to his own standards for home viewing. Viewers will watch in awe as they become witness to the deep and dark blacks, a trademark of the film; they will see colors that are bright in some shots, washed out in others, and a yellow tint to much of the films, along with fine detail and depth. Likewise, film grain is seen aplenty, and as was the case with Close Encounters of the Third Kind on Blu-ray, it is preserved and adds an undeniably powerful element to The Godfather experience. Viewing these classic films in this fine Blu-ray set will not inspire the same sense of high definition "awe" that the newest of films offer, but the experience of seeing The Godfather as it is presented here is just as awe-inspiring, but for different reasons. Just because the film has been "restored" does not mean it looks like it was made yesterday. That would require a "remake." By "restored," the film has been returned for us to see at home as closely as possible to what theaters first screened in March of 1972.

The Godfather
Rating: 5/5

Among the first things many viewers will note is the heavy amount of grain over the image. Fear not, this is The Godfather as it is meant to be. Like the aforementioned Close Encounters of the Third Kind, it sets a tone and mood in the film very well, and as it is inherent to the film, and since transfer is approved by the film's legendary director, its presence and intensity is most welcome and brings the cinematic feel of the film home. One great thing about this release is that black levels are absolutely jaw-dropping, as they should be and as is to be expected of The Godfather and its sequels. Dark, rich, and true without a hint of gray or blue or artificial brightening present, this aspect of the transfer is flawless. Cinematographer Gordon Willis, whose talent for shooting dark scenes earned him the title "The Prince of Darkness," lends his trademark noir vision to this Blu-ray, and the film has never looked better. There are also many scenes that take place in brightly lit exteriors, including many of the film's most memorable scenes (the entire film is one large memorable scene, truth be told), and these scenes are presented flawlessly, too. Although colors sometimes appear slightly washed out, there is no denying the meticulous attention to detail evidenced in each shot, whether we are at a traditional Italian wedding to open the picture or at a crucial scene, years later, as Don Vito Corleone and his grandson play outside. Flesh tones vary from shot to shot, seemingly due to the lighting of each individual scene, and not through any faults of the transfer. One scene, where Michael is at the hospital wondering where the police protection has disappeared to, did exhibit a number of white speckles over the image. Nevertheless, this is a wonderful presentation and longtime fans and newcomers alike will be amazed at the breadth and quality of the work done to bring it to us.

The Godfather: Part II
Rating: 5/5

Among many attributes that make The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II such incredible films is the shared style between the pictures. Released only some 33 months apart, the films retain the same director and cinematographer, and although there was a change in editors, the films still work together and integrate seamlessly. As such, it is no surprise that The Godfather: Part II looks just as good, and shares the same qualities in this transfer found in the first film. No shot is wasted, no frame is not precisely filmed, and the movie's unique look plays a major role in making this series so great, no more and no less important than the script, the acting, or the music. The wonderfully rendered black levels are back; every dark shot is a work of art all its own thanks to the magical cinematography of Gordon Willis, who lends incredible artistry and a perfect look and feel to this film. Film grain is also back, in wonderful abundance, in many scenes. Color reproduction is also, again, fantastic. The Havana sequences offer viewers a glorious array of color with every scene awash in wonderfully rendered Technicolor. The film's flashback sequences, between Sicily and New York, which provide the backstory on young Vito Corleone, exhibit a hint of sepia tone to differentiate them from the rest of the picture, and they look remarkably good, too, and provide the only real contrast in styles between this picture and the previous. Long story short, The Godfather: Part II is an amazing visual experience on Blu-ray.

The Godfather: Part III
Rating: 5/5

Spiffier and more robust, The Godfather: Part III is the "best" looking of the series, featuring the richest, truest-to-life colors, great depth, and easily the best detail of any film of the trilogy. This comment in no way belittles how wonderful the first two films look, because they look just as good as this one, but in their own unique way. Gordon Willis once again provides the wonderful cinematography to this picture, and his contribution to the entire series is as equally important to that of Francis Ford Coppola, Al Pacino, or any other recurring cast or crew member. The exquisite black levels return for this picture, as does the series' distinctive grainy appearance that lends itself well to not only the moods and themes of the film, but also to the incredibly deep, rich, and cinematic look of each picture. The Sicily sequences are stunning on this release. They offer an incredibly detailed, lifelike image with striking clarity in every shot. Like the rest of the series, flesh tones vary based on lighting schemes and locales, but retain a slight rosiness. The Godfather: Part III never falters on Blu-ray, and the image is just as spectacular as what we witnessed with the first two films.


The Godfather Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

As with the video, the audio has undergone an impressive restoration, as detailed in this Blu-ray.com news release. Again, it is important that Blu-ray fans realize that The Godfather and its sequels do not revel in whiz-bang sound effects and an aggressive sound design, though as the series progresses, the sound design does become more robust. Mixed from the original monaural tracks (which are included) and the multi-track music scores, the soundtrack has been given new life as each film now features Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtracks. The results are impressive, in the context of the film and original source material.

The Godfather
Rating: 4.5/5

As The Godfather begins, we are treated to a melancholy musical solo, the haunting theme from the series, setting the scene for what is about to unfold. During the festive wedding that opens the movie, a warm and inviting atmosphere is created. While mostly front-heavy, and slightly lacking in volume and clarity, it's still a fine effort and the best the scene has ever sounded at home. Likewise, an outdoor scene between Don Vito Corleone and his son Michael in chapter 20 features the continuous chirping of birds in the background. Again, it mostly comes from the front channels, but the effect is still a good one to create just the right feel for the scene. The beginnings of a thunderstorm in chapter 9, as the police show up at the hospital, sounds as good as any I have heard, with the slightest rumble of bass and a fine presence throughout the entire 360-degree soundstage. Dialogue through the center channel is the most prominent aspect of the soundtrack, and from the most quiet whisper to shouting matches between characters in chapter 15, it is incredibly precise and reproduced at just the right volume. Bass also kicks in intermittently, and while the soundtrack isn't ablaze with low frequency effects, when the track calls for them, they are present and accounted for. An explosion in chapter 16 sounds about as good as anything we might find on the latest and greatest explosive action movie, but it doesn't sound out-of-place amidst the rest of the film. The soundtrack has been meticulously remixed, and even the most subtle of nuances show up. For example, I could hear the cat Don Vito Corleone holds at the beginning of the film purring, ever so slightly, in response to his touch. Whether we are hearing these finest of nuances, the crisp and always intelligible, clear, and adequate-in-volume dialogue, the sound of a joyous outdoor wedding, the power of a single shot from a revolver, the intensity of several Tommy Guns ripping through a car and a character, or an explosion laying waste to an automobile and killing one of the film's most likable characters, the soundtrack simply works and definitely sounds like it belongs with this restored version of The Godfather.

The Godfather: Part II
Rating: 5/5

As fine a presentation as we heard in The Godfather, the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack accompanying The Godfather: Part II is even better. A masterful presentation, this is nothing short of spectacular. Of course, the original monaural soundtrack is included, but this re-mix offers an astonishing new experience. As the film opens in Sicily to a tremendous amount of insect noise all around the soundstage, the listening area comes to robust life, not so much as a newer film might, but to staggering new heights for this release. A minor detail to be sure, but it shows the track has been not only professionally restored, but lovingly so. Such fine atmospheric subtleties will present themselves throughout the course of the film, and for longtime fans of The Godfather: Part II, this track is almost like hearing the film again for the first time. Listeners will note that surrounds seem a bit more active in this film, again another example coming from Vitos' father's funeral procession as the band's music blends seamlessly into the background. The scene on Ellis Island -- where the immigrants (and Vito) arrive and receive medical exams -- features a robust, engrossing atmosphere, as surrounds and the front soundstage are used to full effect as we hear the crowd noise all around us, a din that makes a great scene all the better and makes us feel as if we are there. Gun shots, as first heard in a scene in chapter 7 that serves as the driving force behind the film's primary story, are powerful and effective, banging throughout the entire soundstage and causing destruction befitting of the scene, and the audio is a fantastic accompaniment. Dialogue, as was the case with The Godfather, is strong and true, presented to perfection on this Blu-ray disc. An incredible experience to be sure, this track is definitely one of the highlights of this package, a package full of remarkable achievements in home video.

The Godfather: Part III
Rating: 5/5

If you would have blindfolded me and told me I was hearing the opening theme of The Godfather: Part III in a concert hall and not at home on this Blu-ray, I might have believed you. It's reproduction over the opening moments of the film sounds incredibly "live" and is placed oh-so-precisely across the soundstage. Who says lossless makes no difference? Dialogue, again, is reproduced without flaw throughout this movie. The famous helicopter attack scene in chapter 9 is out of this world, vastly superior and much more powerful and precise than the DVD edition I own (not to mention the VHS Cassettes). Bass thumps, bullets continually ring out with amazing precision, and the scene's impact is elevated drastically thanks to this major improvement in sound. Likewise, the following scene features a thunderstorm, and it sounds as real as if a storm was rolling past your window outside. Like the other films' soundtracks, this mix creates a wonderful environment that comes alive with the finest nuances to create a realistic atmosphere. The Godfather: Part III, like the previous installments, sounds absolutely wonderful.
