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
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…
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.
Don't do it. Just brings the franchise down so much.
Few movies have been as eagerly awaited as this one seeing how both its predecessors are both among the best films ever made. Well, you're in for a real shock because this movie is complete shit. The only part I found enjoyable was seeing Michael and his relationship with his children. And most of that was good due to what was set up in the last movie. Besides that, this movie is long and boring with sections that are unwatchable. Huge disappointment.
While you can do a LOT worse than The Godfather: Part 3, and living up to it's masterful predecessors was a near impossible task to begin with, that doesn't make The Godfather: Part 3 a good movie. It's still a tedious three-hours with suprisingly weak performances, blatant attempts to redo some of the original's most masterful scenes, one of the worst romances in cinema history, a lack of subtlety, and just all around disinterest. It still looks rather nice, and there are some scenes that really do work, but this doesn't stop The Godfather: Part 3 from ironically, feeling like a watered down version of The Godfather.
It adds almost nothing to the mythology, like one of those TV episodes that doesn't advance the overall story not one bit, an authentic filler entry. Part II did everything that Part III tried to do, better and was way more efficient at that. And oh god, Sofia Coppola was so so bad, her horrible performance is even more glaring because she's around such great actors giving great performances. D'Ambrosio was pretty bad too, but he wasn't in the movie much, so that's not so bad.
The whole opera sequence, especially its culmination, are just masterful. The last scene is among the best ones in the trilogy, which isn't a small feat.
SÍ, por fin ya terminé de ver completa The Godfather trilogy. He subido un escalón como cinéfilo.
The Godfather: Part III no es la mala película que esperaba encontrar, de hecho es bastante entretenida, diría que lo suficiente como para poder soportar a Sofia Coppola las veces que sale en pantalla EN CIENTO SESENTA MINÚTOS. Evidentemente es inferior a sus procedentes en años luz, pero estudiándola como una película individual se queda corta en el sentido de que es un error dejar las grandes secuencias para el final, el espectador muchas veces no perdona eso. Ahora, estudiándola como final de una trilogía con tan buenas bases, queda claro que fue innecesario pese a que a uno le brote la nostalgia…
Completely terrible for the first 2 hours and absolutely brilliant in the last hour. It makes for a very mediocre film
Es floja. Está claro que lo tenía muy difícil contra las dos películas anteriores, pero es que además es muy floja, está muy deslucida y salvo Eli Wallach y Al Pacino el resto no se sostiene.
Sofia Coppola está para matarla.
For being a studio cash grab, The Godfather 3 is still a decent film. It is clear that it cannot stand next to the titans that are I and II that will live on as legendary pictures in the pantheon of film history.
One aspect of the movie that everyone can agree on is that Sofia Coppola is horrendous and the film just ends. Coppolat almost sounds like she is speaking English for the first time.
I feel sorry for Francis Ford Coppola. Despite all his power, the studio only gave him 1 year to write/shoot/edit, so the film could be released over the Fall holidays.
아.... 차라리 태어나지 않았으면 더 좋았을 영화. 왜, 왜!!!
