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.
BREAKING NEWS: Person Actually Likes Third Godfather Film
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.
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…
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 needed 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…
What a step down...
Last night after the Super Bowl I had the free time to watch a long film so it was the time for me to rewatch a movie I had seen before but the last time was years ago. Some movies come off as worse after the passage of time or are seen as worse by me compared to when I saw it in my youth. Likewise, films can be better due to the passage of time. This is a movie that is better than what I had remembered.
Considering the circumstances of trying to equal two of the greatest films in the history of world cinema AND being rushed by Paramount so that the movie could come out at a…
Al Pacino ❤
I like the film, I really do, but it stays really behind its predecessors, but in the overall the story was really good.
The only thing I still hate to this day is how weak Michael is, for me he was the meaning of power and strength, but in this film all I see is an scared old man, desperate for redemption.
And that wasn't the right ending for such a character.
how much I like it (50): 39
how good it is (50): 38
overall (100): 77
Before watching it I was skeptical that this movie was as bad as everyone says it is. I am now a believer.
Papal conspiracy theories in beige.
The best of the entire trilogy. A true landmark film. Beautifully acted, especially from the girl who played the Al Pacino's daughter, absolute powerhouse performance.
The Godfather Part 3 could and should have been way better, it doesn't live up to what the first 2 movies achieved , nevertheless watching is still recommended just to see the final chapter of the epic tale even though it wasn't what I really wanted , I didn't care for the most of the characters , sofia coppola gave a terrible performance , the movie seemed lost in the story, yet the direction was incredible , really ,you still feel you're in the godfather world , such an incredible direction , the cinematography was outstanding , and there were some excellent performances .
Again the Godfather had the potential to be as good as the first two movies but it unfortunately did not .
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
