    I just watched Godfather 1 and 2 in a row and at the end of the 2nd movie, I hated the Micheal Corleone character.

    Wasn't sure if I should put spoiler tags on these since the movies have been out longer than I've been alive, but I'll do so anyway for the handful of people who haven't seen the movies or have forgotten about them.


    Primarily for killing off Fredo and also for acting like a bitch to his wife towards the end. The part towards the ending where Fredo was the only one that congratulated Mike for enlisting in the Marines killed me.

    He certainly turned from likeable and quiet in the beginning to a ruthless sociopath rather quickly.

    He was not the most endearing on screen character.

    yeah, I hated him towards at the end of the movie. I already knew what was going to happen and when the movie showed Fredo teaching Michael's son how to fish...

    I didn't like him as a ideological kid and I didn't like him as a cold blooded adult.

    To be honest ı watched both more than 10 times,the movie is all about testosterone,other than that Michael doesnt play a good guy,he is the leader of a crime family

    He's pretty likable through much of the running time of the first. I think he really mans up in that scene where him and the baker ward off the hit men at the hospital. Pivotal scene there.

    When he comes back from Italy, he's jaded and changed and a lot less likable. In Part II he really went full heel with Fredos murder.

    However, Godfather Part III he's pretty much laid back and likable from the get go...

    It may have been worse...Sonny was a hothead and not a particularly good don by Vito's own admission.

    I like him in the first movie. The second movie is extremely overrated.

    Yeah, you're not supposed to like him.

    It's supposed to be a story about how a likable, "good guy" that wants to live a clean life can slowly and almost inadvertently become a vicious criminal because of the environment that organized crime creates.

    Having said that, Fredo had it coming. A hit on your own brother? Fuck that.

    Was thinking the exact same thing. He got his hands dirty for the sake of the family.
