It’s Strictly Business – The Godfather (2/9) Movie CLIP (1972) HD

It’s Strictly Business – The Godfather (2/9) Movie CLIP (1972) HD


Now, we insist
it’s a public place, A bar, a restaurant, Someplace where there’s
people so I feel safe. They’re going to search me
when I first meet them, So I can’t have a weapon
on me then. But if clemenza
can figure a way To have a weapon planted
there for me… Then I’ll kill them both. Ha ha ha ha! Hey, what are you
going to do? Nice college boy,
huh? Didn’t want
to get mixed up
in the family business. Now you want to
shoot a police captain. You got to get up
close, like this. You blow their brains
all over your nice
ivy league suit. You’re taking this
very personal. Where does it say
you can’t kill a cop? Come on, mikey. Tom, wait a minute. I’m talking
about a crooked cop Who got mixed up
in the rackets And got what was
coming to him. That’s a terrific
story. We have newspaper people
on the payroll, Don’t we, tom? They might like
a story like that. They just might. It’s not personal,
sonny. It’s strictly business. It’s as cold as they come. Impossible to trace,
so don’t worry about prints. I put a special tape
on the trigger and the butt. Here, try it. What’s the matter,
the trigger too tight? Heh heh heh heh.Madonna!
My ears.

  1. Al Pacino was hot!!

  2. Tom knew Mike was 100% right and it would work

  3. Love the way Pacino says all this with such intensity lol! Great actor!

  4. The Don inside Michael awakens.

  5. So many wonderful subtle moments in this scene. Notice that Tom says "C'mon Mikey…".

    I suspect that is the last time anyone calls him "Mikey" again.

  6. I met James Caan on the set of Vegas. He's a nice guy, but self-absorbed. I got along with him. He's a lot more conservative than most Hollywood types.

  7. Gotta love Sonny reaction in this scene. He just looks at Michael not sure how to react, but when the two capos start laughing, he takes their cue and starts goofing off.

  8. What the hell someone dislike this. Such a idiot.

  9. "What you gonna do? Nice College boy didn't want to get mixed up in the family business" "gotta get in close badaning blow their brains all over your nice Ivy league suit" Did Sonny forget that Michael was a Marine who fought in the European and Pacific theatres? He probably seen things Sonny would only see in his darkest nightmares, sure Sonny has probably killed a lot of people and saw some bad shit but nothing compared to the war

  10. This scene shows it was in Michael all along to be Godfather.

  11. A lot of cliche came from this scene.

  12. Subtitle is too fast

  13. Nice college boy😀

  14. I have a chair like that..when i sit down i feel like freddo

  15. Octavian Augustus’s eyes were like that, he was pure mind.

  16. In this scene I forgot that Michael was a movie character

  17. Michael just suited that chair, it came natural to him!

  18. Michael is so "[email protected]!" in this scene. He creates a plan to get back at Sollozzo and McCluskey. Ironically he talks about McCluskey being a "Dirty" Cop and as Frank Serpico he tries to be a moral cop even though so many on the force are dirty.

  19. That slow ZOOM……..

  20. It would be me McLusky and solozzo

  21. I like the way how Micheal plans to kill them of both at the restaurant!

  22. I love the kiss Sonny gives Micheal, such a realistic touch

  23. The first time i ever watched The Godfather, i didn't really like it because i didn't get the plot very well unlike movies like Scarface and Carlito's Way which were a lot easier to understand and enjoy. But when i watched it for a second time and i paid more attention to everything and i really liked it, so much so that it became my favorite movie and it still is. I even bought the book and it's sequel "The Sicilian". I still kind of find it funny that something i didn't like at the first time, maybe even hated it, i grew to be so interested and fond of it. The movie tells you the importance of family, close friends and shows you that you never know what can happen to you in life, as Michael never wanted to be the Don, but the future had other things in store for him. In my eyes it is the greatest movie ever made. Every member of the cast played a character that would go on to become iconic and it gave the 70s a new generation of actors that were set to dominate Hollywood. This film set the foundation for future mafia movies, that were all inspired by this movie in one way or another. Even if someone prefers, let's say Goodfellas, Once Upon a Time in America or anything of the sorts, they need to know where these flicks got their roots from, and that would be no other than The Godfather.

  24. 1:25 …and a strip club in fictional New Jersey is born.

  25. When the face of a sports franchise gets traded

  26. I always love how Michael took everything personal and always find a way to make it "It's just business" and it always fit right in.

  27. Being godfather is al bout attitude
    Look at michael 😎😎😎

  28. I watch this on VHS in 1981 as a little child with my family. Man, when he said "It's strictly business" that facial expression is still chilling in 2019……

  29. Every scene in this movie is a masterpiece.

  30. This is where movie's version was far superior than the book's. In the book michael preached everybody about good deeds his father did to everybody regardless their positions in society, here Michael just says, "it's not personal Sonny, it's strictly bussiness".
    COLD.

  31. "It's not personal Sonny, it's strictly business"

    Of course the genius of that line is that it's deeply personal.

  32. This is when Mike showed he was going to be a Don

  33. They really underestimated Michaels real wartime experience.

  34. Who believes it is strictly business for Michael in this moment? It is intensely personal. And that last closeup. Who would deny him that opportunity?

  35. Tom's face when Mike starts talking, he knows he got the juice.

  36. I LOVE Sonny on this scene! 😍😍😍
    -The e way he says:
    " Tom, this is bussines and this man is taking it very very personal"
    -The way he kisses Michael
    -The way he says: " Badda Bing!'
    Love this character!!

  37. Hollywood of today cant even begin to immitate this genius, and better not even attempt a remake. Todays Hollywood has run out of ideas' and lives off re- makes, and Pg 13 kiddy fare horseshit. Same with todays music.

  38. Ok. Your business it's yours .
    You can do with your business whatever you like. It's yours.
    Well ……
    Whatever it's mine. I can do whatever I ME PERSONALITY ME like. It's strictly life

  39. Why should left something for YOUR BUSINESS? Why.
    .
    BEST OF LUCK.
    (Have you starting praying?)

  40. I never understood this. The key here is the advance knowledge of the meeting place. Once this is known, why not have someone else enter the place and kill McClusky & Solenenzo. That way, Michael doesn't have to run off to Italy and have this very serious criminal offense hanging over him for the rest of his life.

  41. We need more GODFATHER MOVIES

  42. Pacino was a handsome guy

  43. Godfather 1 & 2 are masterpieces.

  44. Pacino's portrayal of Micheal's transformation in this film is astonishing. He looks like a different person by the end of the film. He starts off as this wide eyed innocent college kid, and ends up as a dead eyed ruthless villain.

  45. Great scene 👍🏼

  46. Your disabled brother lives in poverty and sleeps in the woods

  47. Is strictly business on the outside. but deep down in Michael its personal.

  48. This is the cheesiest scene I've ever witnessed in an otherwise flawless movie. Good lord, we get it!

  49. I would have done this for my Father..

  50. It's not personal Tony it's just business.

  51. Greatest scene ever put on film.

  52. A public place to feel safe…and then he kills two ppl haha

  53. Al Pacino is an overrated actor whose entire career is based on screaming a couple times a movie…too short, no charisma, no real presence, too short, unlikable as hell, not a leading man…sorry, he is VASTLY overrated

  54. your fatal mistake

  55. "It's not personal Sonny, it's strictly business." By Sonny ignoring this is exactly how he got turned into Swiss Cheese at the Toll Gate!

  56. :08 – He suddenly looks like the ‘Don’…

  57. Tom took Michael more seriously. Everyone was laughing, but Tom was thinking about the serious ramifications of such a move. He started buying into Michaels idea and eventually supported it.

  58. This is the part in the book where Michael tells tom, "It was all personal…" And then the best part, "Accidents don't happen to people who take accidents as a personal insult.:"

  59. 2:02 “He got that ambition, baby. Look in his eyes.”

  60. The scene where Mike decides to forget about The American Dream and rather join the criminal underworld. Point of no return from that place.

  61. 👏🏆👏🏆👏

  62. The newspapers might like a story like that – mike

  63. Where was Fredo? I guess he was in the living room playing with GI JOE dolls

  64. 1:03 me and my friends getting high

  65. It was Micheal Corleone's destiny to be a godfather whether he wanted that life or not.

  66. Funny thing is what he said eventually happen

  67. This is the most iconic scene in Hollywood…..u get goosebumps listening to his plan 😅

  68. Perfect timing of the slow approach shot on Michael, and cut to Sonny while Clemenza laughs first

  69. Funny thing is that people have been quoting this line for years, but in the book he also goes on to say "Tom, don't let anybody kid you. It's all personal, every bit of business."

  70. Easy to underestimate Michael "Godfather" Corleone and wind up dead.

  71. it was only business chico!!!!

  72. I won’t say a word then … it’s strictly just buisness then ..!! That’s fine .,!!! I’ll be quiet … whoever u r .!
    I’ll do my art my way my thing ..!!!

  73. Prior to this, Michael wasn't involved in the family business.

  74. They way he sits in that chair and commands! Comes nature to him!

  75. Just think while all this is going on fredo is in vegas banging cocktail waitresses two at a time.

  76. Come here kiss on the head
    Love it

  77. "BA-DA-BING" 1:25 😂

  78. 109 dislikes… It must be from the Barzini family, Tartaglia family, Moe Greene, Solozzo, Hyman Roth , The headless horse , Don Altobello., Captain McCluskey, Rossato Brothers,Don Claricuzzio, Don Santadio, Archbishop Gilday, Don Ciccio, Johnny Ola, Tessio , Paulie , Senator Geary, Don Fanucci, and of course Joey Zasa… !!

  79. Anybody from pizza car video lol it was recommended to me

  80. Michael has such a baby face in the thumbnail

  81. Thats why santino was a bad don

  82. This scene shows how brilliant Michael Corleone and his ability to become the next Godfather.

  83. Felicia Byrd: I’m above the mafia oui set the time frame michcale michael McKinney Td bank Montgomery county Pennsylvania heltenham Cheltenham mall

  84. Of all the things in The Godfather trilogy that disturbed me the most was the line (stated many times) “it’s not personal it’s just business”. I do know if this thought process was first revealed in the Godfather. But if so it became a justification for murder in so many other movies since.

  85. It’s never business; it’s always personal.

  86. Michael's teeth never bugged me until just now, it's like he's gritting his teeth but they're not closed.

  87. The scene where Michael turned into the Don.

  88. Little touch of Serpico here.

  89. Sonny’s performance often gets unappreciated

  90. and BADABING! Michael is the real Godfather.

  91. I love how tom give michael the eye roll when he is explaining how to use the news to cover their tracks like he’s some innocent boy looking for petty justice until michael show how deep his thoughts were in the whole plan.

  92. Al Pacino was the star of this film
