But it wasn't just Andy Gracia who tore apart this movie, oh no. He had some help. Sofia Coppola plays Mary Corleone, Micheal's daughter. You could tell she had no idea what was going on. It was like Francis Ford, the director, just told her to say random things without even giving her a script. Marlon Brando, may he now rest in peace, was probably disgusted with this movie before he died.
To make this movie even worse, they decided to have a dramactic ending scene with Mary shot by a some random person sent to kill Micheal. This scene ends with Al Pacino screaming his lungs out, and the whole time I was sitting there saying, "That guy did you a favor by killing off that unholy death angle sent from the deep dark bowels of heck." The final scene, was indeed, a sad one, but with the acting skills in this movie, I don't blame Micheal for dying. I do have to admit, there are no words to describe the death scene of Micheal Corleone, because that marked the end of the Godfater lagacy, hopefully, forever. But don't get me wrong, I still love the Godfather trilogy, and always will. It just needs to end, here and now.
If you ever plan to watch this movie, tape a knife under your couch, just in case you feel like killing yourself after seeing the horrible acting presented by the infamous Andy Garcia and Sofia Coppola, The Destroyers of the Godfather Trilogy.
Despite its glaring flaws, I can't help but feel that people are too hard on this concluding installment. The acting is terrific (although Sofia Coppola is simply a pain in the loins), the scenery is great, and there were enough plot twists to keep me interested. This is worth your time, without a doubt. Just be prepared to swallow Ms. Coppola and the fact that this pales in comparison with its predecessors.
If only Variety had not written that one review, which single-handedly lead to the largest onslaught of an American cinema masterpiece in the history of film, we would have not an underrated "underdog", but a universally accepted final chapter which is actually superior to the second installment of Francis Ford Coppola's gangster epic.
For those who have the capacity for abstract thought, present in human beings since the Stone Age, this undoubtably one of the greatest films of all time. Picking up many years after Part II, we are introduced to a new Michael Corleone, an older, more mature, guilt-faced man who faintly goes through life as a ghost, going through the motions but ultimately is so overtaken by the guilt of his brother's murder, he is unable to be involved in any form of organized crime whatsoever.
As crime seduces Michael back into the seedy underworld of crime, we see more than ever a message that was merely hinted towards in Part II. In many ways, Michael's destiny has been sealed since the beginning. His actions, although seemingly calculated, not only are written as a part of his own fate, but that of Vincent Mancini, Sonny's bastard son, who will ultimately go down the same road as Michael.
The grand finale in the opera house is absolutely masterful. The cinematography, acting, and pacing are all some of the best in existense.Read more ›

Sophia Copola has been bashed too much, and it's undeserved. While she had no experience, she had a certain sweetness about her. Read morePublished on July 12 2004 by Mr. Tickle Snort
