The Last Don II

Spinning off The Last Don, The Last Don II mixes bloody violence with subplots so sudsy they seem more Jacqueline Susann than Mario Puzo. The late don’s daughter (Kirstie Alley) falls for her priest, the new don (Jason Gedrick) falls for an undercover cop (Patsy Kensit), and the new don’s sis, a Hollywood studio head, begins a bad marriage with a Schwarzenegger-type action star. Pulling out every trick in the Godfather playbook, the filmmakers off most of the cast with amusingly cliched Mob hits in an epic so luridly melodramatic that it’s campy fun. Like The Last Don, this one features added nude scenes for video viewers. As before, they’re perfectly gratuitous. B-
