"For those who have seen The Last Don or the Godfather they will not be disapointed with his latest creation The Last Don 2 it has all the earmarking's of a Mario Puzo story with great performances by Jason Gedrick and Kristie Alley. The movie centers around the Clericuzio family and in this sequel to the Last Don Cross Jason Gedrick's character is brought back this time to be the driving force behind the family and It's saviour. The Last Don 2 as in the first movie has some interesting parallels to Hollywood and Mob life suggesting that they are similar worlds. Although I strongly reccomend this movie I believe to fully enjoy it you must see the first of this series The Last Don. And if your A Mario Puzo fan you wont be sorry for watching this Movie."
Fine entertainment--not quite up to Part 1

"I really enjoyed "The Last Don" (Part 1). Although it wasn't quite the masterpiece that "The Godfather" was, I thought it was more true-to-life than the great classic. "The Last Don" saga deals with the modern mafia, and the efforts of the head of the Clericuzio family to extricate his family from crime, and enter the legitimate world with his empire's wealth intact.Part 2 picks up exactly where Part 1 ends. In my opinion Part 2 is quite watchable, and constitutes good entertainment. It is not quite up to Part 1. Certain segments of it seem over-acted and perhaps overly simplistic--it lacked the twists and surprises that made Part 1 such a delight. Most of the time I felt that I knew exactly where Part 2 was taking us.Notwithstanding my criticisms, this is a very entertaining sequel. Its portrayal of Hollywood is very funny, and there are certain components of the film that I frankly am surprised did not get someone sued. Spoiler omitted here, but if you watch Part 2 you will most surely know exactly what I mean.I enjoyed it."
Not a bad follow-up

"First let me say to the guy that said Mario must have turned in his grave, he was alive and involved with this production when it was filmed.You should research before making a fool commment and then following it by a stab at mentally handicapped people, you must be quite the human being! Anyway, like was said this picks up where "The Last Don" left off. Not bad for Television and if you are a fan of Mob-style movies, this is a great endcap to the Mario Puzo legacy. I always thought Joe Mantenga stole the show in "The Last Don" and it's great to have him reprise his role again although the focus is mainly on the younger generation. This may not be "The Sopranos" but very entertaining none the less."

Really Good Mafia Movie!

"This movie is good, right next to the first part. The continuation of the Clericuzio family was as interesting as the first with more backstabbings and betrayals typical in these movies. What struck me the most was the betrayal of Cross's friend. He never knew what he was up to, but anyone familiar with watching shows and films could tell that he was the one behind all the killings just by the way the movie would show him close up. Of course, he got dealt with in the end and got exactly what he deserved. Just terrible that they only found out at the end. The "babysitter" who was a closeted police agent should have known better too. She got hers too in the end. Good movie to purchase and watch. You won't be disappointed."
