The Godfather is a generational saga, it catches the imagination of the audience because it suggests that the career of a gangster is not so very different from the career of a businessman or a politician, as they face a lot of obstacles to overcome.

A series of mini climaxes all building to the devastating, it was carefully organized and crafted for example building a image of the major characters showing a complex individuals and their backgrounds.

The film was well acted, well written with a epic story line that takes you through themes like love, revenge and betrayal.

This film truly reflects the city as today and not how it was in the recent past years which displays the deprived area of some young people, how they live their lives and what they go through. Using soundtracks like the UK hip-hop and grime music gives the feel of a professional production and refers back to the Urban Sound.

A true story of how bad areas can affect the circumstances when having a relationship, the girl is left with his child however the twist of the desperation for money and joining the underworld is a huge risk they would take to survive.

The acting was done to a professional standards especially considering the ages of most of the actors, it made it seem as if they know the teenage characters well enough making it believable . The film was tense, violent and gripping taking on the issues of teenage gang violence.
