I've just came out from below the rock I've been living under, and as such I watched The Godfather. What a masterpiece!
The entire movie made complete sense and I found it extremely well scripted. The only thing I could not figure out is why there seemed to be no retaliation at the end of the movie when Michael has the other Dons killed.
I thought of 2 explanations for this but I'm not 100% satisfied with them:
- The movie ended on the same day all that happned so there was no time for the other families to retaliate yet.
- There is retaliation except it is not shown.
If anyone has a better idea I would like to hear it
P.S I plan on watching the rest of the trilogy soon, please avoid spoilers. If my question is dealt with in the follow up movies please just say that. Thanks.
