Best Characters in the Godfather Triliogy
The Top Ten
Simply the best character ever in the series, and one of the most fabulous characters in cinema history!
I thought Brando was okay and De Niro was unforgettable.
Brando and De Niro just created magic in this movie.
The real OG in this movie
He took the family to a different level. He is unquestionably the best.
He surpasses the Godfather. He has to be higher.
His father is not so cool as him!
Cold hearted..methodical..somewhat paranoid...killing fredo was unnecessary
Tom, along with Vito are the only major characters that don't have a major flaw. Sonny is a great character, but his hot heated attitude can make him come off as a jerk at times. Fredo is also great but obviously lacks intelligence and strength. (I'm counting this as Fredos flaw rather than betrayal because I really don't think fredo intended to betray Michael, he was simply lied to by Roth and Ola which I chalk up to as dumbness.) Michael is obviously an outstanding character as well but by end of the second movie he has become unbelievably cold hearted given how his character started out. Tom doesn't have a major flaw, he's smart, a voice of reason, loyal, etc. At no point did he make a major mistake, or commit any act of betrayal. Tom is the most underrated character by far.
Tom may have done morally questionable things working in the family business but he was the sort of friend you wanted in your corner He,s a loyal hard working and Smart guy yet Tom,s also not afraid to tell you when your wrong as he desperately tried to persuade Sonny to think pragmatically and raised moral objections to Michael,s plan to kill Hyman Roth Tom and the corleones in general can also be counted on to Honor their deals so as far as Criminals involved in plotting mass murder go Tom,s a stand up guy
Layal to a fault...smart..and dependable...Not a war time consigliere..lacked ability to make hard choices
Better than Michael
He was hot-headed, but also loyal and very protective of his family. He's an amazing character in the trilogy.
The coolest mob character ever!
One of the best!
He beats up carlo rizzi after rizzi beats up sonnys sister! Sonny is classic!
He, one of the coolest character in the Trilogy,
Loyal...loyal and loyal...he would cook dinner for you then kill you in a heartbeat if given the order
I like Fredo, because he actually is a pretty sad, realistic and magnificent character. He would be second or third spot, if I were to make a list. I don't know. I usually do not like his type, but somehow, I love Fredo...
My one respect for him is he almost killed Kay. Also rest in peace John Cazale.
He got screwed..he deserved better after a lifetime of loyalty to the corleone family..Michael should have helped him
" I'm Moe Greene! I made my bones when you were going out with cheerleaders ".
I got a business to run
Smart...calculated...no nonsense...should have stayed loyal..
Sweet..innocent..gorgeous... I just liked looking at her lol
Hot headed.like his father..ruthless like Michael..charming like vito...he had a little of everyone..his temper like his dads would have been his downfall
I think he was the coolest Godfather
Should be under the top 5
Awesome caracter...would have loved for him to stick around longer...
