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…
After watching The Godfather Part 2, I thought it was a perfect ending to the rise and fall of Michael Corleone. Finding out there was a third installment to the series confused me and I did research before going into it. Apparently Paramount Pictures kept on asking the director of The Godfather series, Francis Ford Coppola, to create another Godfather film after the huge success of the other two. He refused and so they got other people to do it that kept on failing or dropping out. In the end Francis agreed to make one and it was pre-production hell with writing issues and previous actors dropping out.
In the end it was finished and it's an unnecessary sequel which…
Inevitabilmente l'episodio più debole della trilogia. Chiude il cerchio e lo fa grazie alla maestria di Coppola.
Well. I finished it.
Honestly, this was not as bad as everyone says. The ending however left me unsatisfied. You could replace this movie with the scene from The Lion King where ghost Mufasa emerges out of the sky to talk to Simba but with Vito and Michael, and it would be more satisfying than this movie. Al Pacino was the best part of this though, and I loved the scene where he confessed his many sins and sobbed.
Still a great movie, it simply pales in comparison to and stands in the shadows of the much-greater films that came before it in the trilogy.
I often wonder what audiences at the time would have felt if either: a) the first two movies hadn't been made (that it was a stand-alone film); and b) if anyone else other than Coppola had directed it. Though it's definitely the runt of the litter, it stands the test of time and is certainly no embarrassment.
Next to 'Bram Stoker's Dracula', this was Coppola's last great and important film.
that was .. bad
Bueh, pues OCHO MESES después de revisar las 2 primeras, la he visto.
Y no, no es tan buena y memorable como aquellas, está claro.
Pero no creo que lo pretenda. Al fin y al cabo el único momento en el que quiere impactar, lo consigue...
Tiene menos ambición, no le interesa contar algo tan potente, tan solo despedir a un icono como Michael Corleone. Y en eso es difícilmente mejorable. Le da el único final posible: 20 años después, un vulnerable y cansado Michael echa la vista atrás, comprende qué era lo más importante de su vida y se arrepiente de su mayor crimen. Busca acabar y redimirse. Pero no merece tal cosa, sino pagar un precio…
For plenty years I avoided this movie (you probably know why), but finally I got my eyes on this one too. So.....meh!
It's an ok movie, that's about it. It got made just for money and you can feel it on every level.
The ending is powerful and tasteful, also the scene, where Michael's son Anthony sings the song "Brucia La Terra" to his father......wow, it's as beautiful and heartbreaking as it gets. Those 2 minutes are better than whole movie.
OK, it’s not as good as the first two, but it’s a solid film and I don’t think the first two are as remarkable as their reputations would have us believe. In a way I think The Godfather 3 emphasizes the weaknesses of the first two. The first two are a mix of gangster film and family melodrama: the social politics of power and money mixed with the politics of family tensions and loyalty. I remember seeing Coppola’s TV edit of the late 1980s where the narrative was laid out in a straight line to create a mini-series: it worked well, The Godfather films have a lot of story and it suited the TV format. The Godfather 3 continues this.…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This has to be one of the most frustrating films I've ever watched because you can see that it had the kernel of greatness possible within it but it just didn't work out at the end of the day. Pacino may be a bit over the top with some of his dramatics but overall gives a solid performance. Same can be said for Andy Garcia. I hate to say it but Sofia Coppola was awful and took a lot away from the production. I also found her whole story line of being in love with her cousin as bizarre and unsettling. I appreciated the idea of Michael being tied in with the Vatican and the shady backroom antics that occur…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
