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.
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…
BREAKING NEWS: Person Actually Likes Third Godfather Film
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…
A clear Drop off of its Predecessors;
the Mafia Flair is gone.
It was unnecessary to put his Daughter in this film, not only is Sofia Coppola ugly, she also can't act, her Scenes are among the worst ones. As a stand alone film The Godfather: Part III is watchable but as a Sequel it is very weak
Bastante mala comparada con las anteriores
the first and the second are way better than this one.
Just when I thought I was out... They pull me back in.
I think the main reason this film is so skewered by fans and critics alike is because it followed the heels of a film that would give it unrealistically high expectations. After 1979's successful Apocalypse Now, Francis Ford Coppola appeared to be having issues producing another success to match his three (four if you're like me and love The Conversation) crowning achievements. Granted, The Outsiders wasn't inherently awful, but it doesn't hold a candle to his other previous successes. The only other film that Coppola has managed to strike a chord with me since Apocalypse Now was John Grisham's The Rainmaker, and that may only be because I'm…
"Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in"
Godfather 3 gets a lot of hate. Hate which I think is unjust. It's not an awful movie. It's a ton better than hell of a lot of the movies out there.
Unfortunately, it has two major problems. Firstly, it's not Godfather or Godfather Pt 2. They set the bar sooooo high, which meant that there was a massive job to do here. Had it been made directly after Pt 2, perhaps it would've been a different story, but 16 years is a long time. Particularly in Hollywood.
Secondly, Sofia Coppola is so amateurish next to the heavyweights in this movie. Had she been more of an incidental character, then maybe it wouldn't matter, but she is required to carry…
Imperfect since the closest to human scale part of the epic, and a rather personal work to Coppola.
Well, Sofia Coppola wasn't as bad as I'd been made to remember.
