This review will contain a spoiler!
“The Godfather: Part III” is arguably the worst sequel of all “The Godfather” trilogy. But, that’s how many people said. To me, “The Godfather: Part III” may also be arguably losing power and some other elements compared to the prequel series. “The Godfather: Part III” is also going to focus on the story of sorrow experienced by Michael and also some romance stories that exist in “The Godfather.”
In the final instalment of the Godfather Trilogy, an aging Don Michael Corleone seeks to legitimize his crime family’s interests and remove himself from the violent underworld but is kept back by the ambitions of the young. While he attempts to link the Corleone’s finances with the Vatican, Michael must deal with the machinations of a hungrier gangster seeking to upset the existing Mafioso order and a young protoge’s love affair with his daughter.
Of all “The Godfather” series I’ve watched so far, The Godfather: Part III is arguably the most depressing and saddest movie ever. In this movie, Michael looks like someone who doesn’t respect himself and must regret his sins in front of the archbishop. Michael has regretted his sins for killing the people he cares about. And also, Michael must have a very sad death to die alone with his dog. “The Godfather: Part III” is also the last series of the trilogy of “The Godfather.” Actually, Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppola ever had a planned to make the fourth part. But, the film never made itself because Mario Puzo died.
Al Pacino’s acting arguably more looks like a mafia because of the previous series he just gets a little performance. One of them, there is a scene that is required for Al Pacino to cry for hearing the song “Speak Softly Love.” While listening to this song, Michael cried because he remembered his first wife who died tragically. In addition to Al Pacino, Sofia Coppola’s acting who is also the son of the director Francis Ford Coppola looks good.
“The Godfather: Part III” focuses more on romance, especially the relationship between Vincent with Mary and Michael with Kay. Therefore, “The Godfather: Part III” lost some touch of mafia elements, unlike the previous film. However, this doesn’t change the fact because of “The Godfather: Part III” is the exact same film from the previous film as well.
Although the film was only nominated for an Oscar in 1991, this film looks good in terms of the story. Mario Puzo has created a magic touch on all of “The Godfather” trilogy. Fans of mafia, Mario Puzo, Francis Ford Coppola, or all of the circles must watch all the trilogy from “The Godfather.”
