Paul Fleming’s review published on Letterboxd:
The Godfather Part 3 has been ripped apart since it's arrival. I'm curious to see the new Coda version but for now I revisited this along with the original.
Is it a bad movie? If it wasn't following two cinema defining movies then maybe it would be more fondly thought of, and stand alone, it is maybe a solid crime thriller.
One of the problems that actually stuck out for me here was Al Pacino. I was blown away when revisiting the original Godfather how spellbinding Pacino was and the growth and change of the character throughout the film. Here, he's acting like the parody version of Al Pacino. The one you do when you do an Al Pacino. Not that that's a bad thing, but it doesn't feel like the same character from the previous movies.
