Violence and The Godfather
Throughout time there have always been people who held more power than others. There are many different methods used to both demonstrate and maintain the power which they possess. Often times violence is the method chosen to achieve these goals. Violence can be used demonstrate power or as a tool of revenge. If used right, violent measures could be very effective and even necessary, but if it is abused the consequences could be deadly. This is the case for the different members of the Corleone family in Francis Ford Coppolla’s, ” The Godfather”, in which each member receives different results in the use of violence against others. The negative consequences of violence are demonstrated through the actions of each member. The use of violence can be beneficial or disastrous, and must be exercised very cautiously.
