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…
The best one in the trilogy!
Godfather 3 > Godfather 2
Alas, I have finally concluded the Godfather trilogy. I didn't know what to expect when I started the most maligned and infamous entry in the trilogy. Godfather Part III's reputation certainly precedes it. People hurl hatred at it and attack it for a variety of reasons. Sofia Coppola's performance, a convoluted plot, and lacking the grandeur of the first two entries are the most common ones. While the third film is certainly a step down from the first two, it is better than most give it credit for and serves as a mostly satisfying conclusion to the story of Michael Corleone.
Picking up nearly two decades after Part II, Michael Corleone has decided to make his pursuits of the purely…
Perhaps one of the most disappointing movies of all time, but that doesn't mean that it's bad. Minus Sofia Coppola and some wonky writing, The Godfather Part 3 looks great and that Opera scene, even if it is just a redone version of the baptism scene from the first installment, is just amazing.
Es tan distinta a las anteriores, la diferencia de calidad es tan abismal que uno está tentado a dejar 1 o media estrella por es sólo hecho de ser culpable de arrastrar por el suelo a una saga que perfectamente podría haber sido lo mejor que el cine norteamericano nos pudo haber dejado. Pero no, la tercera parte de El Padrino no es tan mala como la pintan, pero tampoco es una buena película esperando ser reivindicada por una generación desconectada de la grandeza de las dos primeras. Es, simplemente, una película mediocre, que comparada con las que le anteceden palidece.
An average-quality mob film with an unusually moving ending, this film's greatest flaw is that it isn't as good as it's two predecessors. It benefits from outstanding performances by Pacino, Keaton, Shire, and Garcia, and suffers from a horribly miscast Sofia Coppola, but at the end of the day this just isn't a Godfather film. Worth a watch, especially as part of a binge watch with the first two, but keep your expectations in check.
I have just checked it in my notes: it's been over five years since I watched "The Godfather" for the first (and only) time and it hasn't been so long since I discovered how badly written was the Puzo's book. Today, as I was assigned to do so for a course at my university, I finally sat to watch the third and the last piece of grand mafia series.
Let me tell you this: I feared watching "The Godfather" because I've never been that much into gangster films, I didn't even have a love for noir. But "The Godfather" was different. It wasn't just a gangster movie. It was a film masterpiece and although I don't often call films like…
I realize I'm completely discrediting myself from any prior and future reviews/ratings, but this was the most entertaining film of the Godfather trilogy for me.
If by any millionth of a chance someone has the same opinion, you should reach out to me cause we're obviously meant to be together.
For every moment of genuine inspiration in The Godfather: Part III, there are just as many moments that come off tedious, overwrought, or unintentionally funny. The real dramatic heft of the previous two Godfather films is totally absent here, with this third entry feeling like an unnecessary epilogue to the series rather than trying to work as a successful standalone film. Al Pacino gives his all and the movie is handsomely crafted, but as this disappointing finale shows, Francis Ford Coppola was made an offer that he really should have refused.
