The Godfather: Part III
All the power on earth can't change destiny.
In the midst of trying to legitimize his business dealings in 1979 New York and Italy, aging mafia don Michael Corleone seeks forgiveness for his sins while taking a young protege under his wing.
It's like watching DaVinci piss over the Mona Lisa really.
Watching The Godfather: Part III is painful, all the more so because despite the fact that it's so mediocre, there are enough tantalizing glimpses of greatness in it that I can't help but be all the more disappointed with the film.
The look of the film is just right. It's not quite as dark as the previous two installments, but it's just as rich in detail and color. And the music score is still there, accompanied by several familiar faces, both of which made me feel, however momentarily, that I was indeed watching the third part of one of the greatest American epics ever made.
There are several moments of poignancy, most of which come when the new cast is…
BREAKING NEWS: Person Actually Likes Third Godfather Film
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Originally I was going to watch "Chinatown" for the first time, and review it, but since when I marathon a series, I prefer to finish said series as soon as possible. Guess what movie I'm planning on reviewing next then? Now onto the review.
The Godfather Part III is a 1990 American crime film written by Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppola, and directed by Coppola. It completes the story of Michael Corleone, a Mafia kingpin who tries to legitimize his criminal empire. The film also weaves into its plot a fictionalized account of two real-life events: the 1978 death of Pope John Paul I and the Papal banking scandal of 1981–1982; both are linked with the affairs of Michael…
I concluded my Godfather Easter Marathon last night around the stroke of midnight. I held off on writing a review because i was tired and I had to take a break from Corleones and killings. I even watched Lincoln on BluRay for the first time since seeing it theaters. And after THAT little break I watched The Godfather Part III for the first time since I vowed to never watch it again unless I had to.
I always say that the Godfather trilogy is one of the most "marathonable" series ever, but when I say that, usually including Part III is optional. Now I'm not going to be one of "those guys" who sits here and shits on the movie…
Just imagine Francis Ford Coppola doing that to every single one of his Godfather fans.
A última vez que eu vi "O Poderoso Chefão - Parte III" foi há 24 anos. E eu não tinha a memória de um grande filme. Nada mais errado. Que filme maravilhoso, que belíssima conversa com o resto da obra, que coerência! E quantas cenas impecáveis! Se a escalação tapa-buraco de Sofia Coppola deixa muito a desejar, há Al Pacino magistral, Andy Garcia reeditando James Caan lindamente e Talia Shire monstruosa, elevando Connie a um papel de protagonismo. Que bela homenagem à memória!
It's like the Star Wars prequels; nowhere near as good as the ones before, but by the time you get to it, you're so attached to the world and characters that you're willing to be blind to its shortcomings (well most of them anyway)
Probably the best Trilogy you could ever see. Not knowing Italian much can make understand some bits hard. But other than that this Film is Brilliant like the rest. Maybe a tiny bit less as good as the previous Parts. But still really good, it's a masterpiece Trilogy. :)
Such a disappointment, the 1st part remains the ultimate best of the three, part 2 was great too, this one lacks everything great in the first 2..
Everything in this movie is disappointing, even Al Pacino, and weirdly part of my disappointment was seeing Al Pacino so old after watchin' him young, powerful and handsome, damn I hate growing old..
Movie lacked the soul, the characters, the depth, no script, no remarkable lines, no logical sequence of events, nothing..
The last scene was moving thou, but all in all the movie is a bummer, too bad I was really excited to see it and it did start good and looked promising..
So, I finally saw The Godfather: Part III.
And, you know what? Sofia Coppola wasn't actually that bad. Not as bad as I thought anyway based on the terrible rep she has based on this film.
The Godfather: Part III is also much, much weirder than I expected. It has huge, outsized killings, a variety of surreal elements (the Pope, unexplained identical twins, oranges around every corner), and ends with an operatic sequence that occurs at the opera with real life mirroring the events on stage.
This film is a painfully downgraded, cheesy, clichéd and melodramatic epilogue that runs for nearly three hours of your life that you'll never get back...

actor: Al Pacino as Don Michael Corleone
character: Vincent Mancini by Andy Garcia
bad: Sophia Coppola as Mary Corleone
Exceptionally disappointing, especially when compared to the two previous instalments.
El gran delito de Coppola fue simplemente no estar a la altura de su propia grandeza. En las últimas semanas de este tórrido mes de Julio he tenido oportunidad de comprobar, de nuevo, que lo que hacía especial a los dos primeros padrinos era, entre otras muchas cosas, la sapientísima estructura que los guiaba: En el primero era la lenta corrosión; En el segundo, la desmedida ambición narrativa de expandir en dos direcciones la historia original; Años después llega la última entrada de la saga y Coppola ofrece un epílogo, pero no la catedral que todos deseaban; Incurre en repetir exactamente la misma fórmula de las partes anteriores y especialmente ese clímax patentado en el que mientras observamos un evento…
