    ''THUNDER CAN'T HURT! HARMLESS NOISE!!!''

    This film isn't really as horrible as it was made to be at the time, but it's also still a poor successor to the first two Godfather films. Part of the fault lies with Francis Ford Coppola, who was a markedly different director post-''Apocalypse Now'' [that silly helicopter attack in Atlantic City would never have made it into the first two]. The rest of the fault lies with Al Pacino, who despite still being a masterful actor, shows none of the cold-blooded subtlety that made Michael Corleone such a memorable screen character. Instead he's in full ''HOO-HAH'' mode, as though this were a warm-up for his Oscar-winning role in ''Scent of a Woman.'' Andy Garcia and Eli Wallach are great additions to the ensemble, it's fantastic to see Diane Keaton back again, and the less said about George Hamilton and Sofia Coppola the better.

    It was ok

    this was a good movie. Now beyond that their are many little things. The plot was kind of confusing. And in all of my life i have never seen a worse ending it ticked me off so much to see Micheal Carleone die like that. Other than that it was a really good movie

    Godfather 3 : The Vengeance Strikes Back?

    Coppola's last Godfather movie. Pacino is, as always, professional though he played a Michael whose judgement was breathtakingly impaired if compared with Godfather II. It was a pity Coppola put his own daughter (Sofia) in a movie & allowed her to look so wooden in the role, it harmed the film too. Andy Garcia (Vincent) plays a beleivable thug with Santino's temper but not an authentic Don. Eli Wallach (Altobelli) was a neatly poisonous and treacherous avuncular figure. Raf Vallone (Lamberto) still sports a beguiling pumpkin smile. As a sequel to the two great movies, I and II, this one has little to commend it. The pros do what they can but the plot is somewhat muddled and much of the movie is spent in regretful reflection by Pacino. Odd because he uses the line ''It's the price we pay for the life we've chosen.'' You'd think he'd beleive it himself by now. Robert Duvall was sadly missed as Mikey's right-hand man. The wet-jobs (assassinations) were poor in logistic terms and execution (no pun intented). A minor point but when we are told someone is ''the best'' or ''never fails'' then let's see what ''the best'' looks like. Summing up; Michael realises that violence begats more violence and try as he might he can't wipe away the sins of the past and disentangle himself from the brutal criminality which made him so wealthy and thus powerful. Not really a competitor for it's forerunners, handy if you want to burn 3 hours though.
