Well, looks like it's time to set up some rules. I'm not too picky, so all I have to say…
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…
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…
"Well you tell him from me, that he can live, or he can die. "
Not as boring as I thought it was going to be. It was actually fairly decent with some memorable moments. It's a shame Robert Duvall didn't reprise his role, it's also a shame whinona rhyder didn't play Michael's daughter, the script could have been stronger. Michael shouldn't have been seeking redemption or whatever he was doing, it wasn't what the character would have been like, even Pacino himself felt this and all of these points I have brought up. They possibly could've chosen a stronger choice for Vincent rather than Andy Garcia although he does a fairly good job. Maybe if Godfather 3 had been made 10 years earlier it could have been better.

Neste filme, Coppola transforma a sequência do magistral Godfather numa melodrama exagerado à là novela mexicana.
Everything that's wrong with the first two and none of the good parts. Too bad because this error of the Don's life could have made for the most compelling story
Awesome ending, awesome lines but the movie itself, the biggest MEH if ever there was one.
I've never looked at my watch so many times during a movie . It's an embarrassment to the good work of godfather 1 and 2.
I forgive this film on account of the last 25 minutes.
