The Godfather: Part III

The Godfather: Part III ★★★

The third installment made after 16 years is indeed a solid movie, but since the other two are exemplary masterpieces, it feels an unnecessary made sequel. The story is passable as a standalone, but considering the franchise, it’s weak lacking the intensity and passion. It covers the aged Michael Corleone’s moral regrets, effort to legitimize his criminal empire and choosing his next protege. Al Pacino performance gets more fluid and unsuited this time around while the rest of cast are adequate. The movie is solid technically with references to previous installments. It’s got its interesting moments with a solid finale and definitely ends up as a good film, but falls a far distant third within the franchise.
