The Godfather 4K SteelBook review

Oct 02, 2022- Permalink

In March of this year, Paramount Home Entertainment released The Godfather Trilogy on 4K UHD discs. As we approach the holiday season, the studio has released a lil’ something for those physical media buffs who like to collect SteelBook releases with special artwork. I had a chance to take a look at The Godfather 4K SteelBook and will let you know about this collectible release.

For a review of the audio and video on this release, please check out our full review of The Godfather Trilogy 4K from March of 2022.

The Godfather 4K SteelBook contains one 4K disc and a digital copy code. Please note that this 4K disc does not contain all the supplemental material found in this year’s trilogy release. The attraction for this release is the artwork. The 4K disc does include an introduction and an audio commentary by Francis Ford Coppola. The SteelBook artwork is glossy and features a portrait of Marlon Brando as Vito Corleone in which the tuxedo clad Don is holding a cat in front of an orange/yellow background. The back of the case is black and features a golden quote: “I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.” The interior of the case features a sepia collage of characters and scenes from the film.

As mentioned in the previous trilogy review, the disc has excellent audio and video. I stress again, this release is missing that release’s bonus content. If you like collecting SteelBooks and displaying them and you love The Godfather, then you’ll enjoy adding this to your collection.
