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.
BREAKING NEWS: Person Actually Likes Third Godfather Film
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…
What a disappointing final chapter for The Godfather trilogy. I had relatively low expectations for Part III, but I was feeling excited to watch it at the same time since the first two films were so memorable. I didn't find it bad, but it certainly had many problems. I didn't like how they wrapped the whole Fredo story arc in only a couple of minutes, so I thought that was a wasted opportunity. In addition, Connie not being suspicious at all with what happened to him at that time wasn't very believable for me as she knew how ruthless Michael used to be. There are plenty of cheesy romantic scenes involving Mary Corleone and Vincent Mancini, which could have been…
There should be a GODFATHER PART IV but BACK TO THE FUTURE II style with old Vincent going back in time to help young Vincent during the events of GODFATHER PART II.
The violent history of the Corleone crime family did conclude on an ideal note in The Godfather Part II but thanks to the unquenchable greed of studio executives plus the dire circumstances director Francis Ford Coppola found himself in during that time, what was until then a perfectly flawless motion picture saga ultimately got tainted by a much inferior third instalment, which wasn't even required in the first place.
Continuing the story of Michael Corleone, The Godfather Part III finds the aging & guild-ridden Mafia kingpin seeking ways to legitimise his criminal empire, having slowly distanced himself & his family from the underworld over the years. But his efforts to come out clean is thwarted when an assassination attempt made on his…
The big question with this movie is, does there have to be a part III to the Godfather series? The answer is no, but the director made a third one anyway. I do have to give credit where it's due and say that there were some parts that worked in this movie. The Vatican and business deals feel like an actual Godfather movie. Some subplots involving the other Corleones (like Vincent) were either boring or useless. Some decisions made by Michael were very bad ones, and this Michael Corleone is much different than the Michael in the first two movies. By the end of the movie, it completely lost me, and it felt like a spy movie more than a…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Although a disappointment when compared to its two predecessors, the third instalment isn't THAT bad. Considering it was made almost 20 years after the first two, of course the film suffers from the fact that several actors did not reprise their role; Al Pacino does however, returning as Michael Corleone. The film is set years after Part 2, Michael (Al Pacino) has aged and still dons the role of boss of the family. He is now, however, coming to the point of feeling remorse for the actions he has portrayed in his life; the main regret is killing his brother, Fredo. Al Pacino gives a fine performance, it's certainly not up there with his best, but it is what it…
In which Francis Ford Coppola directs his teen-aged daughter to have an intimate relationship with her first cousin.
Not is a masterpiece like the first and the second, but is a good end for the history.
I love Sofia Coppola, but this performance...
Not as good as the first two but still a very fine film and it ends the trilogy really well

Really made me appreciate how good the first two are, but is not nearly as bad as I expected it to be.
Two things that I think get underrated in Godfather III:
1) The opening scene, I love how in the first film you have this effortless roots oriented family celebration, which is replaced by the uber WASPy party in Part 2 in an effort to shed ethnicity and join the upper classes. The party in 3 is clearly an attempt to reclaim the warm ethnic roots. Everything is plastic, forced and horrible, it's too late to reclaim the past the Corleone's threw away their roots and now they're gone. Its just a grotesque copy.
2) Talia Shire, that's maybe her best performance. I love how Coppola just shoots her as this wraith in the corner of his frames. The lonely aunt everyone has turned into a ruthless killer.
And that's about it...
